No comments , not even a :what:. Woodbrooks Sports, no problem there DUH. Stopped and got gas at the Exxon on the corner of 29 and Hydraulic, no problem, chatted with the cute girl getting gas next to me. See a pattern here? All in all a good day.

    No! This can't be true.

    We've been told by another poster that if you even thought about OCing inCharlottesville/Albemarle Countyyou would be arrested and sent to Guantimo.

    Or could it be that our former LEO poster was not exactly right?

    Glad to hear you are out and about, spreading the happiness. Next thing is to find others in the areawho also OC. After that, why, you might end up getting together as a group to go out to eat.

    stay safe.

    I carry in cville all the time... Like right now. Just left Walmart, stocked up on targets and some other gun stuff, at harris teeter right now, going to be in the uva area for the remainder of the day.

    A lot more people notice my new carry piece than my last one, but still no real negative experiences. I've only been asked to leave one place ever, the Shell station on pantops.

    Edit to add...

    And the uva thing that's linked in the "Interesting Gun Policy" thread about uva. I need reinforcements to head back on campus.

    I've never seen anyone open carrying, and I've been looking for a little over a year.


    And the uva thing.... what a fun day that was. Next time I'm stopped I will not identify myslef. I'm tired of it, they don't seem to know what a Terry Stop is.

    We'll see what happens tonight

    I seem to be most of the published data... I've been stopped and talked to, but other than the uva cops I've never been drawn on, I've never be disarmed, and I've never been held for more than a few minutes. I know that absolutely nothing should happen, but what has happened is minor in my book. To say that OC is not tolerated in the area is quite an overstatement.

    Got ya, my theory is that you are incorrect.

    One out of very very many people notice at all, I would estimate that one out of twenty that do notice have a negative reaction. Out of all the times I've carried I've been stopped by a police officer maybe 10 times total. As I said before, getting stopped at all is a negative, but I certainly wouldn't consider the area to be anti OC.

    "The uva incident" and last night are the only times I've ever been asked for my information, every other time its been dropped after "how are you doing?/why do you have a gun?" I feel that at this point in the open carry situation that's good. Like you said, its a pretty small town, I've met most of the cops one way or another. After my first meeting, I've never had a second with the same officer, I just get a nod and sometimes a hello. I wish I never had to talk to cops about having a gun, but I understand it isn't common around here and am willing to inform them so they get used to it.

    I get way more negative comments in richmond than charlottesville, considering how much bigger of a city richmond is (and how many more OCers there are) I consider that a good thing.

    Interesting... I may be moving down there in March....
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    Nothing wrong about handing out the Constitution (except that most folks won't bother to read it. If they did we wouldn't be in such a mess). How about also handing out info on VCDL? You could get their info from the website and xerox it. Increasing VCDL membership can do something substantial for our 2nd amendment rights!

    I OC in Charlottesville all the time, but alas, I too have never seen another open carrier around. The only place I get the :what: is on the university campus.

    Oc'd numerous times in C'ville and will do so again as we are scouting areas to reside.


    [line]
    I will post the next time we head down so we can have a OC event if any one is interested.

    [line]
    I wanted to head to Rivanna (http://www.rrpc.org/index.php) for a IDPA match, maybe a group of us could do that then go out for lunch afterwards.

    IDPA calendar not yet posted.
    [line]

    On a side note can anyone recommend areas to look at? Pm please.

    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    When I was in C'ville the other day I had trouble at Wal-Mart. You can read about it in my thread about does anyone have the number for Wal-Mart corporate. I called corporate and filed a complaint and they told me they would have the manager of that store "insert her name here" investigate and call me back. I can't remember what her name was. They told me I should hear from her no later than Thursday but it could be as early as the next day. This was not last night but the night before. I still haven't heard from her so maybe I will tomorrow. I'd really like to know what her take on this is.

    I know some people like Charlottesville but it would for sure not be my pick of places to live. I've been to much nicer places in VA imo. While I have met a couple nice people it's been just that a couple. I've met a lot more jerks in that town than normal. I also don't know that I've ever dealt with a local business there that was a good experience. I take that back I know of one. Of course there aren't a ton of places there that I have been to.

    Since I was told I would receive a call by Thursday at latest. If I don't hear by mid day tomorrow should I call corporate back to see what the update is and why I haven't gotten a call or should I just let it go?

    EDIT Meant to post that in my Wal-Mart thread.

    Do NOT let it go! Follow up and make sure that managers do not suffer from ignorance, or trample your rights because of personal prejudices (whichever may be the case).
