    open carried for the first time in my local food lion, 27613 off lynn rd and 70. i walked in the left door, and i OC on my right. grabbed a cart pushed past the customer service desk where a manager was helping a customer. he looked really hard @ my firearm, but didnt say anything. i walked maybe 10-15 ft away and i heard him over the intercom ask for another manager to the service desk. i had 10 items to pick up throughout the store so i was in there maybe 10-15 min. i wasnt in a rush, but i was able to go about my normal shopping routine w/ no flack. had a short irrelevent discussion w/ the cashier and i noticed the bag boy also looking @ my firearm. didnt say anything.

    i was quite nervious when he asked for another manager to the service desk as well as when it was time to confront the cashier. any suggestions to get over my nerviousness or is this to be expected when i OC?

    EB, I believe this is completely normal. Over time it will become second nature and you will not be able to leave the house without it. I remember my first time ocing, I took my wife and children to Golden Corral in Statesville for dinner and while we were there three LEO's came in to eat dinner, I thought I was going to throw up and while they gave me some looks never a word was said.
    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people until thier children wake up homeless on the continent thier fathers conquered!

    You'll get used to it. You will receive stares from a LOT of people. Suprisingly, there are quite a bunch of people who don't even notice/aren't paying any attention. Eventually you will overcome the nervousness as you become more comfortable with the fact that Open Carry is 100% legal (assuming you're not in a restricted-carry area). Congratulations!
