    Has anyone had any experiences with police or business in Lexington, Buena Vista or the rest of the county? I'm in school in NC but come home sometimes to visit the family and am looking into getting my CC permit and thinking of open carrying.

    I occasionally pass through Buena Vista as I travel to visit folk back in Ohio. However, I have only stopped in the BP up near I-81 and the Exxon station with the Burger King there on Rt. 60. I have not ever had any issue OC-ing in either of those spots, but I may have only been in each while OC-ing once or twice.

    **Just remembered, I have once eaten at the Ruby Tuesday in Lexington while OC-ing and had no issues whatsoever.

    Good to know that there haven't been any bad experiences yet. I'm surprised you didn't get any flack at the Exxon/Burger King on 60 because every time I drive by there, cops are hanging out.

    I've never had a problem interacting with Virginia cops while carrying in any place I've been. Heck I had dinner in Campbell Co. a few months ago and there were 3 or 4 agencies represented in the alcohol serving establishment and no one seemed to give me and my firearam a second thought. This was at a place with a buffet too and me and my gun couldn't be missed.

    My cousin lives in BV i've never had a problem down there and I have oc'd and cc. The cops down there are ok as far as bein up to date on the laws as far as i can tell.

    But with that said they are hard on traffic laws lol!!. Luckily My cousin is a jailer at the county jail, and my aunt has lived in that town for 20-25 yrs so i just talk and useally work myself out of trouble lol!!!

    yeah, they're pretty bad on traffic because they have absolutely nothing else to do. Once I was pulled over for apparently not keeping my vehicle straight. The cop just wanted to know what I was up to. I figured since the cops around there don't have much to do, they'd harass on gun laws.
