    Hello new to this whole OC thing, i was actually searching how to get my CPL, and found that you can legaly OC in washington, but with some problems here and there, so i've been sitting here reading everything i can find for the past 5 hours. lol.

    But my question is, anyone live in vancouver that OC's just fine, or is there a lot of problems? does the clark county sherriffs department and VCPD understand that it's ok?

    Thanks for taking the time to answer hope to hear from you all.

    Welcome Creaxe! I OC in the Vancouver area, have been doing so for about a year and never had any confrontations. I have had a couple people ask if I was a cop and had the chance to tell them about OC. The worst I've had is a dirty look from an older woman. Granted, there have been some problems around here but I have yet to personally experience any bad encounters. I hope my story can encourage you to join us in OC'ing.

    I think the general rule of thumb is, "If children are allowed, so are you."

    As you said, you can't go into those portions of an establishment off limits to those under 21 years of age while carrying OC or CC.

    ETA: I know I'm supposed to cite this, but a quick forum search will yield results for Washington.

    Welcome to the board!

    I'm also in your neck of the woods. I live in Battle Ground, work in Vancouver. There are at least a few others from the local area on OCDO. You're unlikely to see me out OC'ing much (personal preference), but I check this board every day and have put in my share of time corresponding with local law enforcement, etc.

    One of these days we'll have an OC lunch that I can attend, and perhaps meet you FTF.
