I just got back from Cabela's.Another member of this board, Soundman33, drove up from the New Orleans area to get in on the 4 hour sale they had this morning. He was also in the market for a Springfield XD .40 cal 3inch sub compact. It's something he can conceal carry when his CCW permit comes in sometime later this month or in early January.
After leaving Cabela's we had breakfast at the Highway 30 truckstop in St Gabriel. I open carried at Cabela's and the truckstop. Soundman waited until he got to my house to strap on his pistol.
Here's a shot of me with my Bersa Thunder .380 on my hip (as usual)...
photo taken by Soundman33.
I also got a photo of Soundman33 standing on my porch with his new pistol on his hip....
Photo by Yale and posted with Soundman33's permission (he's sitting right here watching me type this and correcting my spelling mistakes).
I had no problems OCing at all. In customer though that I was a Cabela's employee when he saw me trying to pick out a holster. He saw my pistol and assumed that I was one of the gun counter guys. I directed him to a nearby employee who showed him where to find scope rings.
All in all a good morning. Gotta go. Soundman33 is my IT guy and we have software to install.
