    Good oc experience today

    So I went to run some errands today. As usual I was OCing. I went to Subway for lunch. Sat down and ate my food there. As I was getting ready to leave, one of the employees made a comment about me carrying. He said " I don't know how you do it man. I would be to tempted to just fire off a couple rounds here and there when no one is round." I told him well it's a good thing you don't carry. This is why I also go to the Range quite often. He said "yeah that's good." Then a costumer came up and asked me about OC/CC Laws in WA. I told him the basics. He said "Thanks for the info. I did not know that before." I told him he was welcome and to have a nice day. Then I left.

    Went to Petsmart next to get dog/cat food and cat litter. No weird looks or issues at all.

    That as I see it is the problem.

    People either have no experience around guns and are therefore afraid of the unknown, and freak upon seeing a law abiding citizen protecting themselves and those around them.

    Or you go to the other extreme with the "console kiddie generation" who have so little respect for the seriousness of weapons that they make stupid comments like that. Obviously he has no idea of sound, because you know...it travels, and to find an area with "no-one around," given that sound travels, would be nigh impossible in most areas.

    It's comments like the one the employee made that concern me a lot when I OC. I'm worried that some tool will make some snarky comment like that and some anti will hear it and attribute it to me and call the police with "hes got a gun and talking about shooting everyone"
