    I enjoyed my time in KY and envy your OC freedom

    My family just recently visited the great State of Ky and enjoyed the freedom of OC. I live in Arkansas where OC is illegal except on a journey. Both my wife and I Oc every where and even into the Princeton City Hall. Wow! what an experience from a state that has over 20 places that guns are restricted.

    My wife chose to CC during a wedding and because I couldn't button my suit coat I chose to take my firearm off until after the wedding, I performed the wedding ceremony and my wife told me I looked like I had big hips.

    We were able to carry in Princeton, Cadiz and Eddyville, not once did anyone panic. I even OC in a fast food joint knowing there was a State Trooper; little did I know that there was two, but not a word was said between the three of us. One man at the motel we stayed at asked what kind of weapon I had and if I was LOE or for self protection. I just wish I would have been able to carry in cadiz during the Hamfest but do to the wedding I could not.

    I was able to talk to people about their freedom of being able to OC. Though many didn't see the need nor understand why my wife and I both carried they excepted it. I told them if I expect trouble I don't go but sometimes trouble finds me, just like wearing a seat belt.
    After talking to a nephew from Wisconsin about OC in his state and a little about self defense, we, my wife and I, left to head back to the motel we were staying at about 7:30. After a good night sleep, we headed over to my sister's place and she asked if I had heard about my two nephews, one who lives in Princeton the other visiting form Wi. I said no, why. She told me that at about 11:00 that night the video store they were in, in Princeton, was robbed at gun point. They were both standing at the counter and the cashier had just opened the cash register when a man come bursting through the door held the gun to the cashier's head and demanded the money. He told the two boys, men, standing there not to move. He then fled out the door.
    I asked my nephew what was going through his mind and he said this isn't happening. I has just talked to my Uncle about this.
    I think I have two more that maybe looking to carrying.

    Well, let me be the first to welcome your post and I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your OC experience while visiting Kentucky. *LOL* We're one of the best Gold Star states on the map for gun laws.

    I have to inquire, what make and model of sidearms do you and your wife carry?

    I'm glad you had a good trip and thanks so much for the good comments about our state. I enjoy the freedom to protect myself and others around me by OC. I could just as well CC but I would much rather have someone see my gun and know I am willing to defend myself then wait for someone to try something. I hope you get to come back soon. Thanks again for all the great comments.

    I understand that is may be no big deal for many of you there in Ky to OC but I can't in Arkansas.

    My wife carries a Kahr CW40 in an Uncle Mikes holster and I carry a Taurus Millennium Pro PT140 in a Fobus retention paddle holster.

    OC is all knew to my family over there.

    It's a VERY big deal to myself and may others on here simply because the love we have for our state, country, family, and our self keeps us pushing to carry our gun in the open. Because our country was founded by men that put their family and country before anything else. The same as each and every one of us should do. I love my family, I love my state, and I love my country. And will always fight for them and will always fight for my rights handed down to us all even when no other is willing to fight along side.

    Well, nice setup you both have. Though it goes without saying, I'll say it nonetheless, you folks are always welcome back anytime you have the chance.

    Kentucky is a friendly place to OC and not be harass. That's why when I moved from Wisconsin to Kentucky I felt free and good and would never move back. Plus I was able to get my CCDW permit on top of it. Great place to live!
