    This morning at the Lacey Home Depot, in the checkout line. I'm OCing my Officer's 1911. Nobody has said a thing (can't remember the last time anybody did), but it did seem that the associate in the paint section was especially concerned I was finding everything OK.

    A guy comes up in line behind me, on my strong side.

    Him: "Are you in law enforcement?"

    Me: "No"

    Him: "Can you carry like that with a concealed weapons permit?"

    Me: "Actually, I can carry like this withouta permit."

    Him: "I have a concealed weapons permit, but I thought I had to conceal my gun."

    Me: "Your permit allows you to conceal, but doesn't require you to, and allows you to carry your gun loaded in your car."

    Him: "I didn't know that . . ."

    We went on while conversing about open carry and concealed carry while I first checked out and then he did. I explained that in the winter my jacket covered my pistol most of the time, but in the summer I don't want to wear a cover garment, and I'm not usually the shirt-tails-out sort (if I'm seen dressed that way, you can bet I'm concealing). We talked about Oregon permits, and I referred him to the website and FAS for training.

    Maybe he'll show up here. Unfortunately, I didn't have any brochures (I think I need to create a smaller version I can carry in my shirt pocket, unless somebody else already has).

    Anyway, a good interaction.

    I don't think a new version is required - after you fold it in thirds to the normal pamphlet size, just fold it in thirds again. That should fit in your shirt pocket.
