    I have taken care of all my concealed carry stuff and I am just playing the waiting game with the county sheriff's dept. until my permit is finished.

    I am wondering if anyone has OC'ed in the Greensboro and Burlington area?

    I work in Burlington and OC there every day. Never once have I ever been questioned about doing so.

    I guess I just have to get myself prepared for it. I am 21 and look young therefore Im sure I will get some looks.

    I have OCed at a number of gas stations in the B'boro area without any problems.
    Don't spend too much time in the area though, as I'm usually just headed to or from my brother's.

    I live in Greensboro and OC frequently with no problems. The usual assortment of funny looks, curious questions, and such, but no LEO has even batted an eye at me.

    I OC in and around GSO all the time. I carry every evening and every weekend.

    I get a lot of questions, but have never been asked to leave a store and never been hassled by LEO. I have been OCing in the area for about 6 months.

    If I ever do get hassled or asked to leave a business, I will definitely put the story on OCDO.

    Good luck to you! I myself live in Greensboro and have just started to OC as well. I haven't taken my CC class yet but am planning on it as I like having the option. I have not been given any problems yet, but unlike yourself, I am 44 and as much as it is wrong, would probably get less looks than yourself being 18. Just try and be professional about it, and if confronted, smile, bite your tongue (as I am sure we all have to from time to time) and be your best with a nice, courteous answer, be pleasant and easy going, not confrontational. (gheesh, I am damn glad for spell-check in here! haha) I know it is a lotto have to do when you haven't done anything wrong, but if we want to put out that just because we carry a gun, we are not the bad guys, it is going to take some extra work on our part to make sure he correct message is being put out.

    Please, if anyone feels different, let me know. I just want the public to not look at guns in a bad way, just in a more informed way, that good guys have guns as well.

    I'm 26 and look a little young for my age (I'm 5'3"), I've been OCing for about a month and I carry everywhere I'm legally permitted. Walmart, stores, restaurants etc. Haven't had any problems. I get looks from time to time; comments every now and then (some good, some not so much) and It's actually struck up a few friendly conversations for me.

    I have carried in Wally-World a few times and have had my grandson with me as well when I did. I didn't get nary a look. I have also carried in the grocery store, the gas station and a few other places.
