I was at Walmart this morning getting some things and was OC'ing my XD-40. Nothing was said in the store, I guess
most people either aren't very observant or understood that me and my holstered pistol were not a threat(I'm hoping for the latter). On my way out to my car with my things, I was approached by a rather attractive woman in her mid-late 20's(I'm 27).
The conversation that follows is my recollection of the event.
Her(Jokingly): "Don't shoot, I'm unarmed."
Me: "You're not in any danger"
Her: "Is it real"
I have the OD Green model, I guess most people assume that guns have to be Black/Chrome for some reason. It's not the first time I've been asked.
Her: "What is it?"
Me: A Springfield XD, chambered in .40S&W
Her: "It's a very nice looking gun"
Her: "You can legally carry it like that"
Me: "Yes, in the State of Nevada it's legal to openly carry a firearm, but you require a permit to carry it concealed"
Her: "So you can just buy a gun, and carry it like that"
Me: "Yes, if you're a resident of the state you must register it, that's normally done during the purchase process"
Her: "So all I need is the blue card?"
Me: "Exactly, if you're curious about Open Carry, you should checkout www.opencarry.org. Have a nice day"
I've spent the majority of the day kicking myself in the ass for not getting her number, but at the moment my focus was on ensuring it was a positive OC encounter for her. C'est la vie
well next time go at the same time and you will be able to spot her and her new handgun thats being open carried. Maybe you will run into her in the ammo/bait section haha....that store is so stupid i go there in the garden section they say no firearms on the door but then the main doors say nothing so its invalid. Whatever, but there is no way i am going to be on boulder and nellis and not have a firearm especially when i go around 12 to 2am.
