Thank you for both of you who have replied.
I'm not looking to OC just because I can or because I look cool. I'm in Redding, which, for the most part, is a quiet town. However, recently, I have felt the need to purchase a gun (with training on how to use it - prior service) for home protection. In addition, I have recently found just cause to carry it with me for personal protection.
I'm new to OC, other than my own property. Which, come to find out, isn't considered mine outside the walls of the structure.
I always tuck in my shirt and wear my firearm in a holster with a safety device to prevent someone from quickly drawing it. I also keep the clips (though not legally required) on my opposite side. This also makes it easier to load in the event I am forced to draw my firearm - knock on wood.
So far, I haven't had any issues or run ins with LE. I have had 3 people, individually, approach me about the subject. I simply inform the person; "as long as it's visible, and not loaded, it's not a crime." It seems most of them knew that already, and just wanted to hear it.
I make every effort to know the schools and goverment building locations and steer clear. I approach every situation differently asking; "should I OC here?"
