    oc'ed in joplin today!

    I oc'ed for the first time in joplin today. It was very nerve racking but also very gratifying. I walked into the store, guy looks at my face, quickly noticed my 9mm, then back up and simply asked how he could help me. Took care of business and walked out, no problems! I only wish I had more errands to run today!

    Welcome Jeepsnfish. It gets easier. If we don't exercise our 2nd amendment right we won't soon have any.

    Haven't really ran into any problems. Got my first crazy look today at Taco Bell on Rangeline. Had a few people notice at McD noone said anything though. Keep me posted on your next outing

    I have been lurking here for a month or so. Still haven't OC'd in Joplin (or anywhere.) Glad to see a report from someone else who has. I frequent that Taco Bell often, maybe it will be my first stop.

    generally, i wouldnt ask. i learned that the hard way i asked a couple places in springfield, and was told no. but then i have others go and not ask, and they wouldnt have an issue. we came to the conclusion to not ask, that just makes them think it will be a problem. and then they just say no, so they dont have to worry about the issue.

    i not saying you cant ask. i just telling you guys what experience i gotten from that. you can do whatever you feel is right.

    Normally I dont ask. Since they don't let you carry guns out after you purchase them. Even though there was no gun sign I decide to ask anyways. He asked if it was loaded I reply yes and recite Missouri law and Joplin ordinance. He got on the phone with his manager gave me the ok. Come to find out the gentleman that assisted mekist moved here from Cali. That about it. Just got back from Hasting noone notice. Once again success.

    Just out of curiosity, what exactly do you recite?
