    McDonalds - Unfriendly.

    Specifically the one in Eagle, though judging from the lack of response I got from the ownership on the issue, I would assume any McDonalds owned by Richard Darmody here in the Treasure Valley.

    Have there been any issues in the Towne Square Mall? I have OCd there a few times and never had any issues with retailers of the rent-a-cops walking around.

    True. Brian typed this list. I saw it a long time ago, and tried searching for it. The search came up negative. SoI started a thread just for the list to be at the top. I then found brians list, and copied and pasted. Ive since added a few places I've been.



    And yes on the previous list it showed the town square as being NITD. HoweverI made the mistake of parking right next to mall security last week. And the guy noticed my gun and told me not to take it in. I didnt argue at the time sinceI was with my girlfriend and wanted to get in and out.

    I may go back tomarrow and see if anyone actually notices me.

    Some more to add to your list

    OC friendly

    All the Los Betos locations

    Tango's empanadas on orchard st

    GoodWood BBQ

    Port of Subs

    Albertsons

    ICCU

    Quizno's

    Idaho Pizza Company

    Smokey Mountain Pizza and Pasta (State St and Fairview locations)

    Several Stinker Stations.

    and a few others I can't think of at the moment.

    But due to the recent weather, it's hard to OC these days until it warms up.

    I can't think of any Anti OC places at the moment. as I haven't had any Anti encounters to report on.

    don't forget LaDon's Jewelery store in Nampa

    located at the end of this thread here

    http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum20/13433-2.html

    So if you want some Bling or a Wedding Ring, see this guy below!

    My name is Jim Reames, owner of LaDon's Fine Jewelery, Nampa, Idaho. I fully endorse the 2nd Amendment - and believe it the right of law abiding citizens to carry arms for self protection - do so myself. I encourage the two gentlement who were asked to leave Lee Reeds in Meridian, Idaho for exercising their Constitutional Rights to come to our store (Exit 33, off I-84, in Nampa's WinCo\ShopKo Center) where I will gladly give them a free copy of my lastest novel, "LaDon's Lost Diamond."

    About Sports Authority in Nampa; I went in there a couple years ago to check on getting a holster for my wifes Glock 26, and when I asked the clerk at the gun counter if I could see how it fit in the holster she asked if I had it with me. I said I was a concealed weapons lisence holder and she FREAKED and told me to stay there while she went in the back. I didn't stick around to find out what she was doing, I took my business elsewhere.

    Things seem to have changed.

    Is there a thread in here where we can add to the list as time goes on? Been OCing often lately, kind of hard not to in the summertime. Just thought I can help add to the list. I am new to the site. Been reading and getting info off of it lately so I thought I can share too.

    Back in town. Travel a lot for work. Was down in Alabama and discovered even though an open carry state, don't attempt. Was at a steel plate match and asked a few locals who happen to be off duty LEO's. They stated you will be arrested for disturbing the peace if they are called on an OC which most likely they will be called.

    To the point....... today, went OC here in town, doing it more often and hope to see these locations on the list. Boise White Water Pizza and Pasta(Eagle Rd and Fairview), PetSmart on (Franklin), and TCBY on (Fairview) in Merdian, no issues at all. Even spoke to the Pet Smart manager for a few, he eyed the pistol but no response and seemed unbothered by the fact. Stopped to get smokes at a local smoke shop and the guy behind the counter mentioned that Meridian LEO have issues with OC, I have been stopped for a vehicle infraction recently and the officer had no issues once he knew I was carrying OC. Anyone in here have had issues with Meridian LEO regarding OC?

    OC'd today into Walgreen's and the McDonald's, both located at intersection of Ten Mile and Cherry. It was definitely noticed at both locations but absolutely nothing was said. Polite transactions and then on my way from Walgreens and over to sit a t a table for 30 minutes in McD's.

    oh, i also OC'd in Costco in nampa, and actually had a great conversation with a few of the workers about guns and OC and such. there are several workers there who apparently carry consealed/ love guns. i did have one kid (about 11 or so years old) say to his mom, "holy sh*t, that guy's got a gun, mom!" but his mom seemed more worried about the language of the kid rather than my gun.

    Did you go in all of those places? Been in World Market a few times myself, no issue. Did get a few stares from some of the customers, but no issues. In Bed and Bath on Meridian Rd the other day, no issues.

    Just curious if you were in all of them or just in the market place area.
