    Carried my Glock every day this year. And so far I have not had any contacts with the POLICE or comments from others. NO questions, NO discussions, NO educating others, just minding my own business.

    Just thought I should share. It can be done.:P

    Thank you for sharing. Stories like this can be found all over this forum. It does happen. Most do not post about it because it is a frequently experienced occurrence. It is usually the bad experiences that get told so actions (if need be) can be taken.

    Edit: It made sense in my head but not when I reread it. Changed word in bold.

    I have been OCing for 10 months and have yet to have a negative experience.

    Non-events are far more common and, because nothing happens, people don't typically post about it.

    I think that the OP is the first person that I know of that has posted about a non event.

    Non events should be heard about I Think...first for those who are unsure about OCing can learn that they may not be harrassed every where they go. Second maybe we who are OCing can see what he is doing right.

    How bout positive events? Non-events happen way to often. Positive and negative experiences are quite a bit more rare.

    Most of the time nothing happens.


    Plus, many of us OC for the purpose of education as well as for self defense. And as you can see by his post, he would rather remain completely anonymous to the public. Notice the statements in red.

    Of course that is actually a little counterproductive if you would like to take advantage of the crime deterence that OC offers.

    Now I am not saying post a sign on yourself saying "I have a gun!" Justsaying that It's visible for a reason.

    Well to each his own. That may contribute to my boring life and lack of LEO contacts. JUST A THOUGHT:what:

    It is not random that I don,t have the contacts and issues others have. It is a choice.

    I do not have any desire to make a spectacle out of myself by behaving badly and drawing attention. I do not intend to make others listen to me about why I carry a gun and why they should. I have lived a quiet life this way. NO ARRESTS NO SWAT TEAMS AT MY HOME.


    I have not suffered theinjustice of being a victim to a crime while I carried my handgun.

    Are these the positive events you wrote about?

    Clearly you're on a high horse.

    For your information, I am (in certain moods) a gregarious, outgoing person, and so I get a lot of questions about OC and "educate" quite a bit.

    This doesn't mean I "make a spectacle" out of myself. It simply means I'm sociable. Perhaps you are less so.

    FYI, I've never had any contact with the police over OC (which I do most frequently in Fairfax County, Virginia).

    Quite on the contrary actually. I have absolutely noproblem with you quietly concealing and not once being bothered for it.

    I'm merely pointing out that many on this board OC to make a political statement, and that a statement that goes unnoticed is not going to change many minds.

    I am also saying that posting non events, well if I posted every time I had a non event, it wouldn't go very far for our purpose really.

    As far as non events making new OCers more comfortable, well, it seems that anytime there are inquiries involving how much attention it gets you are almost unanimously answered with, "I've never had a problem" So, I don't believe it would be a good use of thread space.

    And I would appreciate if you would get off of your high horse. As far as my less than positive experiences are concerned, you should know that you have nowhere near enough details to make any real judgements about me.

    I'm sure if you were to ask users on this board about the way I carry myself, users such as yo101jimmy, SGT Jensen, packingmama, mazellan819, Joesparky, ScottyT, goosemama, and others who have met me, I'm sure they would be happy to oblige.

    You can start by capitalizing the Sergeants last name. :X

    "Non-Events"happen all the time....they are just not exciting....when was the last time the news lead off with There were no bombing today in Iraq....these days have occured they just don't get reported. I am not suggesting that the group starts posting about all non events but to hear about them from time to time allows me to read how different people handle them. Just like learning what happened when confronted by LEO's helps me if that event happens to me. Non event stories have lead to links with information and documentation that bennifit me and allow me to to give intelligent information to those who ask about OCing.
