I'm in the Shreveport area as well. Me and some friends have OC'ed around town and never had any issues. We still get the occasional stares, but SBC seems to be fairly gun-friendly. Some last minute snags prevented us from going to the meet-up at Lea's last Saturday, so a few of us are trying to get something organized for this area to have an OC meet-up. I'm thinking a lunch, then for those who want to, a trip to the range.
Would you be interested? This would give us all a chance to get to know the others in the area that OC.
