    New To The Forum

    Hello Everybody,

    Just wanted to post a quick message, Today was the first time that I open carried in Wauwatosa and boy did it feel great. Now I didn't go shopping at Mayfair or anything drastic like that but I did grab the pooch and go for a walk around the block.

    I look forward to spreading my wings and OC'ing more, but was kinda waiting till I got a good recorder to take with me.

    I have taken two separate firearms training courses over the past few years and have just recently applied for the non-resident Florida and Minnesota permit.

    look forward to talking with all of you

    Great to have more ambassadors out there in the public.

    If you have any qualms about OC'ing more places (stores etc) we have lots of members in the area (and I'm available also) if you want to shadow an OC'er and see people's reaction (which will be a lack of reaction) when they OC to build confidence.

    I carry everywhere I go up and down HWY 100 at all the retail establishments.

    I don't carry in Mayfair because I am pretty sure they have a policy against it, but I carry everywhere else.

    Kohls in Tosa, Home Depot in St'allis, Lowes in Tosa, Sams Club in st'allis, Northern Tool, Pick n Save, Advance Auto, Wal-mart, Steins Garden Center, Subway, Target (hwy100 and cleveland) Sentry (hwy100 and national) Associated Bank Hwy100 and Cleveland... a bunch more, but those are the ones that jump in my head.

    Good job! The 1st few times i did it I was very self conscious, then I realized, 99% of the people either don't notice or don't care. Even the ones that care, they mostly brush it off.
