    Oc'd At The "Taste of Wisconsin" Festival in Kenosha

    I open carried today at the Tast of Wisconsin festival down at Kenosha's lakefront (by down town)... Lots of peopke there, stopped by the Kenosha Police Dept. booth.. Said hello to a couple of LEO, got me a Kenosha PD pen and some literature on locking and secureing your home. Either they did not notioce or new it was legal. I can't see how the did not notice as I carry between 1 and 2 o'clock and with my new (larger) holster ans the full size XD-40 you almost cannot miss it. No problmes at all. In fact nobosy said nothing. I also oc'd the night before up and down main street as they were have a custom car show. Also alot of people. the had the road bocked off for all the custome cars... agian nobody said a word.

    Today at the festival I was sporting my new firearm tattoo(s) (for the first time in public. Had more positive comments about them than my firearm.

    I'm glad everything went well for you in Kenosha that's the way it should be. Were you by yourself?
