Well I have been carrying since the 4th of July and had my first encounter tonight, and I am happy to report it was a positive encounter.
As my wife and I were exiting the Northtown Winco tonight a lady was walking just slightly behind the handicap cart I was riding and asked if the gun was real, and I said "Yes ma'am it is" and her reply was "My boyfriend wants to do what you are doing" so we talked for a few minuets and I handed her a pamphlet and told them to come onto this site so he can learn all about it.
I carry everyday, everywhere I go, and only have gotten several odd looks but never heard any comments till today and was glad it was a good comment
I got told to leave a bar today ( I wasn't drinking-just came to pick up a friend ) and I had been invited to a dinner party by a couple who knew I carry 24/7 and told after arriving & getting introduced that "I had to leave the gun in the car" ... I told them I would just be going & have a nice night. I didn't tell them I'll never come back but eventually they'll figure that out.
Glad to hear its been all good for you-do you carry at work?
