    Started out Open Carry at the Ocean Shores, North Beach Chance Ala Mer beach approach, My wife and I walked the dog on the beach, went over and patted a few horses on the noses. Then we went to pick up my daughter at her elementary school, I stayed in the car so I didnt have to unholster, unload, lock up.

    Off to Aberdeen, we went to Bank of America, I OC in the drive thru, (yes I'm lazy) . Then to Hometown Feed to get some dog food, Let my daughter pet some chickies, Then to Safeway for Sodi pop, then to HomeDepot to get some plant hangers.

    Back to Ocean Shores, OC at Ace hardware to get some trash bags, Back to the beach again, walk the dog one last time, to nice a day not too, then back home to OC in the front yard doing lawn work, yay. No problems anywhere.

    Excellent! Now when I come down to the beach I know it's all good!

    BTW, you don't need to unload at the school only unholster and lock up out of view. That is why I have a paddle holster, easy to remove.

    Ah, but you cant go in, so I stayed in the car OC and sent the old lady in.

    BTW, you don't need to unload at the school only unholster and lock up out of view.

    I know that, but any time I leave my weapon in the vehicle I always take my ammo in my pocket. If someone happens to break in, they only get my gun, no ammo. Habit from living in Graham, and always being in pullyup.

    [line]

    does the Ocean Shores Ace Hardware have a gun counter?

    No gun counter, They do however sell ammo even though the nearest shooting range is 25 miles away. 1 thing I bet we have that you dont... Really high tourist prices.

    Another good day OC "Lifes A Beach"

    Beautiful day to walk the beach, helped dig out a few people stuck inthe sand

    Talked to one of the OSPD officers, asked me how I've been, wished me luck on the job search. Asked me how my taurus was holding up? any problems with sand, or rust. Mines stainless. He has a little rust starting on his rear sight. Shame on him.

    Went to daughters Teachers conference, empty holster. Teacher asked me if I wanted to offer to be a chaperone on a field trip since I was home full time. I asked her if I could carry. I wont be chaperoning the kids.

    Back to ACE "again" another plant hook, and a storm door closer (damn wind).

    Went to Kyotos Teriyaki to pick up dinner.

    Took Daughter and wife to beach again, let my daughter play with a boomarang we found earlier.

    Shilo Inn Resturaunt - Enjoy a nice dinner with my wife and daughter. We had a nice table with an ocean view.

    Ocean Shores Cinema - My daughter wanted to see "Diary of a Wimpy Kid", It was actually kinda funny.

    Crappy dayturned out to be a good one, Life's a Beach.

    Open carried on the beach today while towing and while the sun was out. Only 1 person said anything. A guy I was winching out of the sand, asked me if I knew something he didnt. I told him, yea, I have the right to openly carry my handgun. He said he had heard that, but didnt know when and where he could. He told me that he occasionally CC when he thought there might be a reason to. So I gave him a pamphlet and told him he should sign up here at OCDO and read why there is always a reason to do so.He was actually asking about the incedent with the officer in Long beach that was shot while the tow driver was there. I told him that we have been carrying long before that.

    Hopefully he'll sign on. Another good day at the beach.

    Ocean Shores 76 station - filled up

    Hoquiam - Doctor appt, new dr.All went well until I got up to leave, my dr said "oh no, you have a gun". I replied, I know. She said "you cant have a gun here". I told her "I didnt know, no one told me". She then said "I think I'm going to faint". Jokingly I asked her if she needs to see a dr"? I then told her "it was legal for me to have a firearm and I wear it for self defense". She was really nervous and left me in a hurry. We'll see how my next visit goes, I may have to find another dr.

    Aberdeen Wal-mart - Heard over the loud speaker "All safety personel to electronics" within a minute there was 6 workers walking around me. No one approached me, 1 followed me for a few isle's. I played cat and mouse with him. He was being very stealthful, (not). I walked up an Isle and turnedat the edge out of sight and let him walk into me. I smiled and said, Howdy and excuse me. He gave up after the second time I let him walk into me. No further contact.

    Aberdeen Safeway - No nothing.

    Aberdeen liquor store - no nothing.

    Ocean Shores - Back to 76 station for propane, My steaks were delicious.

    Overall very good day at the coast.

    How many times have you OC'd into that doctor's office?

    And who's taking bets for that nurse having made up that policy on the spot?

    This always confuses me, why would you follow someone with a gun if you are unarmed and concerned that the person in possesion of a gun is there to do harm?

    Many years ago, while working at a grocery store as the manager on duty I followed a guy stealing cigarettes (cartons). I gave chase outside and caught up with him, he pulled a knife on me, so I let him go. If he had the knife in plain view you can bet you life I would not have given chase!

    Off to Wally world again, had to take my daughter for an eye exam. Got there early so I went back to electronics to pick up a set of cheap earbuds for my MP3 player. While I was there I decided look at DS games with my little girl, fishing for her birthday. I herd some wal-mart cheering going on so I had to check it out. Evedintly you have to lose any self worth as a new employee by doind a demeaning cheer. I figured while I was there and amongst a manager, and about 7 new employees, I would hover and see what would happen and hopefully help them train the new staff on Open Carry (esp after them calling out the hounds on me last time). I inched my strongarm sidetoward them while casually looking at Wii games, (I wish I had a Wii). No one said anything, no one did anything, in fact I think they have all been brain washed and turned into zombies. After the cheer they all left single file. Very strange I tell ya.

    Then to Best Buffet.

    Good day. Happy Trails.

    Guess I'll add to the report. Went from Ocean Shores to Pacific Beach and hit a bunch of the stores and shops in between with no issues.

    I was at a store counter when a WW2 Marine Vet (Turns out he was one of Chesty Puller's 1st battalion 7th Marine's) asked me what kind of hardware I had on. I replied it was a 1911. He replied with "they sure are making them nicer than when I had to carry one..." Great guy to talk with, I thanked him for his service and he made his way out the door.

    I spent many a day OCing around the woods of Humptulips, well before I was 18 I might add. Some of the ilk around the Humptulips bridge made me very glad I was carrying when I was fishing...

    August Sat 7, Sun 8, Mon 9.
    Not a bad Weekend and Monday on the Beach. Covered some towing. Open Carried while on tow duty.

    Satuday, I only went out when called, had to CC (damn rain).
    Sunday, 23rd Anniversary and pretty nice out, so I detailed my wifes car, then we took the dogs for a walk on the beach, answered a few calls for people stuck on the beach again. Went to IGA for a few things.
    Monday, Took the trucks back to the shop, dropped off some pamphlets at the 76 station. The owners brother just got his CPL and is now looking for a pocket bug for at work, (hopefully he will find something bigger and not feel ashamed to show it). The owner his brother carries a 357 concealed, so as not to offend his customers. Anyway off to Aberdeen, to 3rd Deminshen for a hair cut, then to Wally world, then to Safeway, Kings Wok for dinner, then home.
    All is good in our world...
