    In Gillette I had no problem, but I was just a "local" and fit in back then. That's the key to a great many things, looking like you fit in.
    I aim to misbehave

    I open carry an XD .45 at all times, everywhere I go in Wyoming and South Dakota. No real problems and no hassles. I'm an older woman, so that helps a lot I'm sure.

    My suggestion: Dress clean and neat, look confident and friendly - SMILE, and don't be afraid to answer questions when folks ask you about the gun. Most of the questions I get are from people who are passing through or newcomers, but so far almost all have been friendly.

    The cutest was a young clerk in a store who breathlessly asked if that was a "real gun." When I told her it most certainly was, she beamed and said she couldn't wait to be old enough to have one herself. We talked about the great responsibility that went with it, especially carried all the time. She agreed to get some real training before she decided on whether or not to carry.

    Lots and lots of opportunity to educate people about their basic right to self defense. I carry a card to hand out to those who ask. Feel free to print it out or make up your own.
    But, in the end, I live and therefore I am. I donít need any other personís permission to live or defend myself. I donít need anyoneís vetting of my intentions or sanity, nor approval for the self defense tool I choose or how I carry it.

    I donít NEED to explain myself. I donít NEED any reasons at all.
