    OC'ing in the Reston Area

    Hey Guys,
    I'm new here, I've been reading these forums for about 4 months or so. Thought I'd finally contribute something.

    I was over at Fairfax Corner today and I had my first LEO encounter.
    It happened in the REI, I was making a couple returns so I was standing in line waiting to talk to a cashier, out of the corner of my eye I see a Fairfax Officer browsing through some keychains and flashlights, naturally I got a little nervous not really knowing what might happen. Well, he ended up getting in line behind me to pay for his flashlight or w/e. Stood there for about forty seconds before he noticed my belt. Then he kinda eased up behind me and just made some small talk, "was it a glock" "what caliber".
    Nothing really happened, I was very impressed by the professionalism of the officer.
    Anyway, all in all a very positive experience.

    Fairfax Corner and REI falls under the Fair Oaks district station of FCPD, not the Reston District station. Just throwing that out in case you decide to notify the station commander of the positive encounter.
