    Just wondering where everyone has OC'd in Racine/Mt.pleasant/calidonia with/with out any issues.

    Just so myself and anyone else from the area have a heads up.

    Thanks :wave:

    Many of our members OC all over Racine.

    Racine also had to pay a $10,000 judgement for unlawfully arresting someone who was OC'ing, so they "got the memo".

    I'm sure springfield1911 will chime in and let you know all the places he OC's in Racine.

    Glad to help out, "all of the drama" is why I started that list last year... I wanted to people to see all of the places I have carried without any issue. I think others should do it as well.

    Just like most things, people only make noise when they have an issue. Everyone isn't coming on here daily to post about there trouble free experiences, but when they have a problem they are promptly posting and getting support from everyone.

    There are 1000's of people open carrying across WI everyday without any issues.

    Carry On!

    Don't ask, just do it. The most they can do is ask you to leave.

    I'm not trying to have all those sheriffs go gun-ho on me lol. I've seen how they act toward seller's of words an other wepons out there. Not to mention they don't allow the sale of fire arms on there property. Which is why I thought to ask here first.

    I want to go tomorrow but I don't want to have to leave "ole betsy" in the car :-(

    more to report! i spoke with my sister in law today; FULL support for OC, and the cause of the Madison 5, my mother in law showed sympathy too. father in law is still against, but he's been that way all his life, hates everything i do equally- without discrimination. i'm just still in shock though- support from 2 parties i thought for sure would stand against me wholly. looks like i'll be carrying when i go to visit the inlaws when they come back this december. i'll be damned, i'll just be damned in amazement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
