There must be some here that OC but I haen't seen any.
I usually CC but until I get bigger jeans my IWB holster just don't work.
OC at Lowes today and had a clerk ask what I was carrying and why. After telling him he just said good job and carry on. I got a few double takes but no comments.
I've been in O'Riellys on Ocean Beach Hwy many times and just get a nod.

I OC in Longview all the time. Safeway, Fred Meyer, Starbucks, AT&T store, Ichi 12 Teriyaki, Taco Time, Masthead, 3 Rivers Mall & The Sweet Spot just to name a few places. Never had a bad experience there or anyway else I've open carried. Only received good input from people or people asking if I need a permit or if its legal. I OC in Bob's and Gator's too. Of course neither of those places mind.

OC today at Lowes, Wally World, and Bakers Corner. Several people looked twice and a small boy said " look Daddy, he doesn't hide his gun". The guy and I just grinned and waved.

I talked with a young man at Harbor Freight today that was OCing. I was CC at the time to make the wife happy. I told him about this site and the wealth of info here. The only reactions I saw were a couple of grins and nods.

I always carry where legal. Sometimes CC sometimes OC, depends where I'm going and what I'm wearing.
The only comment I've had in a long time when OC was from an older guy that said " I like the look".

I still OC almost everywhere,with it getting colder there will be more " sloppy CC " as in I don't care if it shows or not when I grab a jacket. I've only had one guy ask me if I ever get hassled for OC, no one else has said a thing.
