    BigR Stores, MT, ID and WA..Not OC friendly.

(Yes, the same store the (x) manager had asked me why he did not see more OC) We went to the BigR in Omak to purchase a utility trailer Monday.

    Interesting OC weekend, east and west.

    Finally decided to do it, and traded off my 2001 A6 Audi Quattro 2.7T for a Ford F150. Even though it is an upscale F150, an Audi it isn't. However, I needed the pickup, and as my wife cannot drive any more (health reasons) there was no reason to have both the Audi and the F150. Drove over to...

    Is there anyone here OC'ing up in Skagit County, and more specifically, Anacortes?

    For a laugh about a thigh rig...One cold day last winter I saw a Tonasket city LEO wearing a coat, with a thigh rig. It did look funny...he was in uniform. There is nothing illegal about a thigh rig, but comfort? In a vehicle I would think it would be very uncomfortable. I have a couple...

    Interesting blog comment by Emily Miller of the Washington times about women. In Emily's blog, "Emily Get's her gun" she presents gun control as a womans issue...as we all know...rapist's just overpower their victoms, a firearm in this case is a great equilizer. As we also know....WA Senators...

    Holster advice please.

    OK, I'm a bit different than you. I cannot stand an IWB holster...don't care whose. But then....or because of that feeling. I only conceal when it is winter and I MUST wear a coat for the weather, and then only because I am wearing a coat. I have several guns that I carry, and several...

    Lemmo or Rapgood (lawyers especially, or LE) question

    Our local rural public hospital district hospital has recently gone through an expansion, and now has a new administration. This was never a problem before, but the new "CEO" as they like to call her...(70.44.060 does not provide for a "CEO" so I don't know what her real position is....) comes...

    Must inform question.

    I have a question that has been going through my head for awhile now. You guys already know "must inform" is totally foreign to me, and something I still have to wrap my head around. Does the openly carried sidearm "inform" the officer, or do you still have to verbally inform them also?
