Darn, I was going to go this year. Rats!
Thread: Estes Park Highlands Festival
Anyone carried at the Highlands Festival up there? OC? CC? Bueller?
Yeah, it started on Thursday and ends tomorrow. We are going up today and I'd hate to get all the way to the get only to find they have a metal detector or something. Site doesn't mention firearms at all.
We haven't been to it for a couple years, but there was never a metal detector or security check when we went.
There's another thread bemoaning how my current holster clashes with my kilt and my gun won't fit in my sporran. Will report back when I have some custom work done.
I ended up CCing the entire time as I was there with the wife, kids, and my mother and really didn't want to have a huge event that might result in simply being ejected from the event. I didn't see any firearm signs of any kind at all and there were certainly plenty of people bearing arms, just not firearms (lots of swords, dirks, daggers, etc.) although a few did have some black powder pistols tucked in their belts.
There were quite a few different Arrow Security guards around and I did see a few PDs walking around. If anyone else knows more, I'd love to hear it as I'd love to OC next year.
I've OC'd in EP in general and the Scotsfest in particular numerous times without incident.

My holster has a leg strap, but I wrap it around the holster while CCing. It works just fine as a holster without it. It's not as stable, but that's ok.
I like the idea of the shoulder holster. With a nice shirt, a slick shoulder holster would complement the outfit.
Truebloods will kill me for saying this, but I'm a fan of Utilikilts. They have belts.
CC'd Saturday, no problems obviously.
Side note, Don't think I'll attend next year. Not overly impressed with the festival.
