    I saw you OCing in my store...

    Was at work today and oh what joy! I had a man come in OCing! I couldn't tell if he was a officer or not, but honestly, I have only seen two people OC in public since i started to actively look.

    He was from Albion..was that anyone on here? (Wont say what store for safety reasons, but it was In Lewiston Maine, after 430 Pm.)

    Just thought I would share my joy. Maine has been a little dead lately (which is fine) Just thought id add something to talk about.

    Next time walk up and say, "Howdy." No harm in that, just friendly public relations.

    why hell, give him a discount on something (call it the open carry special with a check out opening up just for you ) he will spread the word and then see if open carriers increase in your store .It would be a cool little experiment and then let us know how it comes out...ok?

    I work at a Auto Parts store, so I did just that and gave him a discount. I wanted to ask him about it, but I didn't want to show my excitement. Haha. It sounds Childish but I was so ecstatic to see a OCr I didnt dare talk and make my self look a fool.

    I have talked to the other guy that comes to my store and shook his hand and told him how i thought it was awesome. He kinda looked at me funny and said, "oh i have a cwp..I just dont conceal it that much.."

    This is what we need! Now you need to go OC into another store and start a chain reaction! :-)

    Keep the chain growing/lengthening, spread the word.

    I like the term avalanche. Hmmm, a group of OCers - an avalanche of OCers.

    A fusillade of OCers?
    A broadside of OCers?
    A volley?

    Consider yourself fortunate; your policy to embrace citizen rights is paying off for you, you are now tapped in to a market that many businesses havent considered; the Open Carrier. you also will enjoy a safer environment as the Open Carriers come and go, and word gets out that at any given time, they may be there. your ahead of the curve now, as a business owner, and citizen.

    Play with the structure and you may find something suitable for your use i.e. MOCA - Promoting Your Maine Freedom or The MAINE Freedom.

    Let freedom reign in Maine.

    Maine - the state of freedom.
