    In the nearly 12 years I have lived here I have only seen one other person OC, and that was in a Von's about a month or so ago. On the other hand, in the few times over those same years I've been over to St George UT I have seen OC often. In Kingman AZ I have seen OC several times. We need to catch up.

    I see OC in Reno quite often, about once a week. When I'm out in Elko, all I have to do is look around to see OC'ers ... and, most of the group I'm around are all CC'ers!

    Of course I'm always carrying, usually CC but OC if I'm not dressed for CC.

    Ran into my first OC'er yesterday!!! I was OC'ing with my little sister at Fry's in Vegas when I walked past a couple. The gentleman was OC'ing what looked like a 1911. I wanted to say hi but he looked busy and I had the cable guy waiting at my house for the router I was buying.

    in the 4 years i've lived here in Vegas i haven't seen it at all. now Arizona in Williams I OCed into a Safeway with not even a glance. until recently I had no idea about the gun laws here and just started learning. I'm at work tonight and without knowing the exact weapon policy i opted to leave my tool in the car for tonight. I do plan on writing management and asking if i can have the okay to carry CC or OC while here at work considering the late hours i work. till 3am but southwest side of town so its a little safer but still some questionable people around. the only times ive seen such defensive tools at BassPro were being checked for patrons to go shoot, I know they put trigger locks on i wonder if they would make me put a trigger lock and unload when i walk in there next. Living 3 miles from BassPro im there often.

    As for Bass Pro. Myself and others have been told by corp offices that OC is fine. I frankly dont go to BP anymore. They are overpriced and have no stock. Better to take money to someplace like New Frontier Armory that has a sign that WELCOMES OC.

    I would have to agree that BP does over price alot of their items, but living 3 miles from the place of that magnitude that carries much more that I am also interested in its hard to resist. I of course bargin shop and shop the sales mostly as ive found some pretty excellent deals on items i wanted. The next time I go I will OC and see if they require me to unload and put a trigger lock on

    I think it might be in one of the NV shooters thread Tim. Tophog made it for them.



    Here is a link with a pic of the front door. you cant read the sign but it there.

    I've oc'ed in bps a couple of times. Once there was nobody it the check in counter. So I just walked right on past. The second time it was more of a casual carry, my flannel barely covering my sidearm.

    The first time the guys at the gun counter for sure seen me. And in the pellet rifle section, I heard a couple of guys say "well I know it's legal but..." and that's about all I heard of there conversation. So I don't know if they were actually talking about me or not.

    I do not have a picture handy but our sign reads:

    "This establishment
    welcomes all
    customers who are
    legally carrying
    firearms - concealed
    and open cary.
    ----------
    criminals are not welcome
    in this store!"

    It was a grand opening present from Tophog! If i remember i will take a picture of it on Friday.

    May well have been me, Big Guy. I think we live/shop in the same areas. I frequently OC in establishments around Horizon/Horizon Ridge, including the Vons on HR where the manager spoke with you.

    I hate Wal-Mart, but on the occasions that I have to go there with my wife, I'm frequently OC. It could have been me you saw. Balding, goattee, 5'11".

    I've also run into Dave (Don't Tread on Me) at Sinister Cycles up in NLV, although I was CC that day as I had stopped in for a dyno on my lunch break, and only CC at work.

    I've seen one (non-uniformed)person OC'ing in Nevada, ever, including all my previous visits to Reno and Vegas before moving here in 2004, and including my travels through the more rural areas.

    Yeah, you won't find OC in town much. I OC when I'm out geocaching, hiking or cutting wood and that's mostly when I see others OC'ing.

    You guys are lucky... I've never seen another OCer in my entire life... Nevada sounds nice! I wouldn't hesitate to greet a fellow OCer with a smile and a hand shake.

    Ive seen 2 people, an older gentleman in a cowboy hat using a IWB at the Costco in Summerlin, and a younger guy probably in his twenties at the Home Depot on Charleston and Hualapai.

    I have lived in the Las Vegas area since 1966 and have only seen a hand full OC. None that really jumps out of the memory. I do not believe I have seen any one OC in Vegas in the last 20 years or so. However I live in Pahrump and work in Nye County cutting down on my Vegas time greatly. I see OC in Pahrump all the time. Because of this web page after 15 years of CC I often OC. Everywhere in Pahrump However have not tried the casinos yet. Next time in Las Vegas it will be OC.

    Hey 28kfps,
    Welcome to the board and to Pahrump.

    I'm a native born Las Vegas kid, also now living in Pahrump. I did see OC in Vegas, but it is far more common here. I myself carry openly everywhere in town.. (like Ray the Flagman, but with less cool sidearms.. lol) Maybe I'm one of the poeple you've seen and vice versa.
    Anyway..
    just wanted to wave hello.

    Thanks for the hello. I moved to the Las Vegas area in 1966 as a kid. Yes the flagman is one relentless person. I say that in a good way. More power to him. This is a great site with lots of good info. Glad to check it out.
