I'm a new gun owner, and new here too. I just wanted to tell everyone about my brief and uneventful UOCjourneys I've had the past two days. First off yesterday when I got off work (I work at night), I strapped on my holster, S&W .40, with an empty magazine in the well, and a loaded magazine in the pouch and went to a little convenience storein my neighborhood. (just to buy lotto tickets). I was polite asked for the tickets, no one said anything to me about my side arm. Next I went to Home Depot, walked around there looking at stuff, and I bought some potassium for my water softener. No one said anything to me about my side arm. After that I went to the car dealership in my town (PERRIS,CA.) to set up an appointment for an oil change. Once again no problems, and no one said anything to me about my side arm. Though when I walked out the door I think they cracked a joke about "not wanting to make me mad" (I would guess because of the gun) BUT... I was very polite and respectful at all stops.
Today I was UOC ALL DAY. I stopped at the Chevron in Perris to fill up, and wash my truck. After that I went to the "CROSS ROADS GUN SHOW", at the Orange County Fair Grounds. It was UOC there as well. I walked around all day with my side arm. After that, on the way home, I stopped at the KFC in Sun City, Ca. to buy dinner. Once again NO ONE said anything to me about my side arm. MAYBE I just had a lucky day, and no problems to report. I thought it was kinda funny though at the GUN SHOW, they wouldn't allow me to take my camera inside... but they allowed my gun. LOL
