    Had to visit an office downtown, across from the County Court House. Camo shorts, light blue shirt, Vietnam Vet baseball cap, white sneakers (with socks), and my Hi-Point C9 on my right hip in a Fobus holster.

    Parked on 9th Street, didn't have any coins for the meter (yes, you know what's coming). Went to the office, discussed business, returned to car.

    Several people passed me going to the office, nobody said or appeared to notice anything. At the office, the secretary never mentioned my sidearm clearly visible. And on the way back, nobody passing me said anything or appeared to notice.

    Got to my car, the Meter Maid had just finished citing my vehicle. She said had she seen me returning, or if I had yelled, all would have been forgiven, but it was too late, the ticket was written. My greeting to her? "Aha! You got me! Shame on me."

    We chatted a little (would you believe the cost of a parking ticket in Downtown Indiana is actually FIVE WHOLE DOLLARS?). I apologized for inconveniencing her. We left with a wave and a smile.

    Not once did she comment about my sidearm.

    Five bucks if paid within two days.

    No problem, used my Giant Eagle Advantage card at the GetCo station just outside of town and got 27 gallons of gas for free (I let my fuelperks build up). Free gas vs. parking ticket (my fault), not a problem at all.

    Maybe you should carry a coin pouch on your belt next time, would be cheaper. I usually carry 4USD in various change in my car... If you could've saved the money it cost for the ticket you could've bought a nice box of tea... or others would say beer.




    Those who get it, don't say a word.
    Gays are prominent members of firearm rights, we do more via the courts, don't like it? Leave.
    Religious bigots against same sex marriage are not different than white supremacists.
    I expel anti-gay people off my teams. Tolerance is key to team cohesion and team building.
