Thread: OC in Home Depot in Firestone
I needed some various things for the honeydo list today, so I took my two daughters to Home Depot. It's a nice day so I wore a silk tshirt and OC'd. I must have talked to 10 different associates looking for things and no one batted an eye. It's hard to think that many of them didn't see my sidearm. I complimented one young man on his Colorado and American flag tattoos on the back of each tricep. The only one I saw "look" was when someone escorted me over to a newly opened line. I saw the checker before she saw me and so I saw her give a slight start, but other than that she didn't even notice.
We talked in the car about 9/11 and all the flags flying and stopped in at the American Legion who were having an open day before a spaghetti this afternoon and tonight. I took them around to thank the vets and they thanked us for their support. One gentleman asked if I was a cop. "Nope, just their bodyguard," I said gesturing to my daughters. Everyone laughed good naturedly and I added, "I figure if y'all are out there protecting our freedoms I may as well exercise them."
I've OC'd at several Home Depot stores, never an issue. I've also OC'd at Lowe's, and not the least bit of hassle there either.
Looks to me like those folks have their heads on straight.
