I have been OC'ing in Nevada for about a year now. I've been asked to leave businesses countless time, encountered the police 5 or 6 times, had a drunk guy at a meet up try to start sh!t with a friend who was OC'ing and OC'd on the strip/downtown at least 5 times. After about the 5th time I had an interaction with somebody when I was out in public I was still a little uncomfortable. It wasn't till my 2nd encounter with a LEO till it became a "no biggie". I OC EVERYWHERE and it is no big deal anymore. The places I frequent most are used to it. I actually get teased and debate the 2nd amendment issues of the day with them now. A guy at the corner market one day called me "the gun sliger" and "buffalo Bill" I in return called him an unarmed victim! Not only are my friends and family used to it, but almost everywhere I go people are used to it. The other day my sister was sick and woke me up around 3 AM to get her some medicine. I went to the local market and the clerk made a comment, "holy crap, this is the first time I have seen you without a gun!"
The comfort comes after some time. When I first started my mind set was along the lines of, let's go shop here or there and see if I get kicked out! Now I don't even think about it. Also almost all comments I get from the public are positive and they want to learn more. Nice to see more and more guys OCing and posting. Welcome to the forum.:celebrate
