    Well today I had to go deposit My paycheck so I went to ICU at fred myer on bakerview. was a little scared but I acted normal just alked in the bank and had no hassle. I dont not think people even noticed. then I went to 711 on northwest and had alot of looks but no biggy. so then I went to Cornwall park on the guide and walked around. had a bunch of people look at me funny. Acouple people walked up to me and asked if it was legal to OC I said yes it was and showed them the pamphlet i printed off of here. I was a scary experiance but it went great for the first time with no hassles..

    Sounds great, by the way that nervous feeling goes away pretty quick once you realize people either don't notice or don't care.

    Darn, I might have just missed you at the 7-11 too. I live just up the street but I have NEVER seen an OC'er in person. Oh, if you dont mind the question Blowfish, where do you work security at in Blaine? I used to do a lot of security stuff and might again, plus I used to live in Blaine. Seems everyone in blaine knows my fathers truck. Big bright orange dodge 1500 p/u with a huge factory spoiler. Daytona edition.

    That would be great. The last time I heard about an OC meetup in Boringham, I had a some job training to do. It sucked. Once I get working again I swear i'll buy me a good holster for OC! Finding a good holster for a CZ can bea pain...

    A BBQ would be great! We haven't had a meet since Febuary at IHOP it went well. Good job on the OC, you will find eventually it just becomes your daily routine. At least it is for me I feel "naked" without wearing my gun now.

    I know the feeling. I have a CZ75 SO-01 and finally had to go online to get a holster for it. A BladeTech w/o retention. CZ's can definitely be tough to fit and most end up with an Uncle Mike's nylon holster that "sort of" fits".

    Good luck.

    Oftentimes you can get a close match in a Galco or other leather holster, which will form to fit your gun after a couple months of wear.

I talked to a guy at the park yesterday and he said the Bellingham police actually arrested him. i was thinking maybe like the OC event here in bellingham maybe with a news crew that way the sheep in bellingham and the police know the laws of washington??????

    Open carrying is a very liberating experience; It gets easier to do the more often you do it and it becomes increasingly easy to talk to people you meet while doing it as you become more experienced as well. Carrying some of the Washington Gun Rights pamphlets with you is a good way to get the word out as well.

    When was that guy arrested and what park? That sounds like the park for the meet to me. And we need to make sure he is invited along with the Bellingham police. Did he win his case? Intriguing, I haven't had a run in with BPD but I have a feeling I will. I really need to get a good recorder.

    Oh yes I think he was the guy that inadvertantly got the city to change their laws.
