Thread: Skagit County OC Report
OC'd for the first time in Sedro-Woolley today. Went for a 3 mile walk through town and residential area with no issues at all. (Walk even took me right by the police/fire station.) Was greeted friendly by a few passerby's, including someone else with their chldren, though I did get a head turn from someone in a Fire Dept pickup. Never had a problem yet anywhere in Skagit County.
Carry weapon: SA XDm .40 SC + 11rd Ranger SXT 180gr
Good job bro

A 1911 that works properly is as rare as a Glock that doesn't.

of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
Skagit county is a really easy place to OC. I have had very few incidents of any kind. I did get a surprise in Concrete once when I was walking into the grocery store. It was during muzzleloading season so I had my ROA strapped on. The granny lady was coming out with a basket of groceries pushed by the bagging boy. She screams "He's got a gun!" at the top of her little bitty lungs. The bagger boy just looks at me and rolls his eyes....
Nicely done on your part!

The very first place I ever OC'd was Sedro-Woolley, that was 1970. They had a "Cowboy Quick Draw" competition down on Metcalf right in front of the old bank building (it was still a bank back then).
After the competition I struck up a conversation with one of the contestants about carrying. (there were probably 100 people walking around with guns OC) He was the one that clued me into OC, so I just went home, got out my big Colt revolver (full cover holster, not a quick draw holster) and went back down to town....
Went everywhere, never a word. Been OC since. I do now have a CLP, but I did not then. I only CC in winter, and then only becasue I have a coat on.

My cpl recently expired so I have been oc'ing quite a bit lately. yesterday I went to lowes and walked astound for about an hour with no problems. Cashier seemed to notice it on my hip but didn't say a word. Hardest and scariest part of oc'ing without a cpl is loading and unloading at my truck. It puts one at risk of someone seeing you draw your gun. Anyone else have reservations about that?
