I hope this may help you in pushing you toward ocing in Lexington. Lol
But I live in Lexington, I open carry every day, I've not had but one issue in doing so and it took about 30 decode to explain to the cashier that you do not have ti be a Leo to carry a firearm in public.
Other then the once I've had no negative experiences in ocing. I was directed toward joining this forum by doing so, I'd read posts here before but I guess I hadn't joined before talking to lazainguy at the Fayette mall while I was ocing.
