I just wanted to thank all you guys for the work you've done to for the most part normalise open carry in Maine. I have been carrying for a few weeks now without any major issues. (there was the one manager at Hannaford in Saco that asked me to leave but he turned out to be in the wrong according to corporate). I walk up and down rt 1 almost daily stopping at bad dog deli, rite aid, 2 fish stores in scarborough, and the puffin stop gas station. I've been to walmart in Scarborough and Biddeford with no problems too. Today at Scarborough Lobster the guy said to me "What's the gun for?" I said "self defense". I think he was messing with me a bit because judging by the tone of his voice I was waiting for him to ask me to leave. To my surprise he said something along the lines of "Right on! This is America and it is your right so I don't got a problem with it". So that was a very positive experience.
