    We eat there once in a while. I doubt you will be well received OC'ing. Depending on how many other customers are there and how you are dressed, they may or may not say anything. A lot of the patrons are MCV Doctors and they can get snotty about guns.

    I wouldn't think of going to Shockoe Bottom (or anywhere else in Richmond) unarmed though...but since it would be illegal to conceal in Mortons ...I wouldn't think of breaking a law that it's almost impossible to get caught breaking....I'll let you draw your own conclusion!

    Wear all black. Then you can OC but have it camouflaged. Sometimes when I want to OC but want to avoid as much attention as possible I wear dark clothing. Not fool proof but as much as you can "conceal" your gun without actually concealing it. If you can wear a nice black shirt and have an IWB holster that would be even better.

    In order to draw my conclusion, I must first reach (for) one. My preferred conclusion decider is in .45 whether OCd or deep CC. Conclusions easily reached are best - as in "perhaps you are wondering why I concluded this meeting?"

    Ok, guys, thanks for your input. Did the "Virginia tuck" and had a great meal.
    Place was very busy so no one noticed.
