Wow. First time OCing and got detained? That's pretty bad luck.
I often don't carry my CC permit when open carrying since it has nothing to do with open carrying. The question should never even come up. It's like being out on the lake skiing with your friends and the Wildlife and Fisheries guys show up and ask you if you have a fishing license. "But I'm not fishing." Why would I need a CC permit if I'm not CCing?He also asked if I had a CC permit and I said yes to that too.
