    I find that when I OC, it is 98% uneventful.
    I feel like I draw more attention when I CC, fiddling with my clothes, making sure I'm not printing, etc. CCing was great, but I prefer OC for sure.

    Its been said before: Most peoples brains end up thinking you're carrying a Blackberry cell phone rather than a piece.

    Hopefully by now dispatchers have been properly educated to deal with 911 the caller before flashing a MWAG alert to LEOs. That helps considerably I bet.

    Maybe in Utah county, but I'm not too sure about those Salt Lake County dispatchers.

    Congrats on your first OC, and may you have many more uneventful outings with your 1911. :P

    glad to see a new OCer! im actually back in the market for a semi auto, im too much of a wuss to carry my .357 with the western rig, around town anyway, im fine when i carry it when i go fishing or into the wilderness, just get too many "leave it in the car" type things when i go into walmart and stuff :P

    saw a glock 17 on KSL earlier for 425$, pretty good deal id say! thinking about getting a p22 or sig mosquito so i can put a threaded barrel on it for a suppressor :P

    Awesome! Glad it went good for ya. I was pretty nervous the first time I OC. I'm pretty tall, so most people see it at nearly eye level. The most stressful time was the first time I was in a checkout line full of people and had to keep my situational awareness at a peak without looking paranoid. My gun is an XD 45 Compact, but it's still a pretty large and heavy chuck to tote around and draws attention when worn against a whit T-Shirt. I seem to get the least amount of looks when I wear it against darker clothing.

    If it isn't broke, then don't fix it, or you'll fix it until it's broke.

    Congrats on your first OC! I have been doing it for over 18 months in SLC and haven't had a single negative or LEO encounter in all that time.

    Come on out to dinner with us on November 5, it is great to OC around dozens of other people doing the same!

    Yeah I will have to make it to one of the events, I am glad to find this community of people practicing their rights. I could still learn a lot though I would like to get really familiar with the laws so if I ever do get into a bad situation with a cop/security/whoever that I will be able to handle the situation the best that I can.

    Thank you all for your kindness everyone, although I should not be suprised I have never had a bad experience with"gun people" I was raised around firearms and have always found it nice that usually people involved in gun rights or shooting are usually really civil and polite generally speaking,it is refreshing in this day and age of rude people and the cold world we live in anymore.
