Out and about in NoVA again today, stopped in at Potomac Paint and RiteAid while OCing my 9mm. No :eek:, comments. fainting women or stampeding horses.

All of this talk about "Yankees" is getting somewhat overblown regarding reactions to OCd firearms. I have yet to run into an "anti" or a LEO that displayed any kind of concern. What we have to worry about most "up here" are the liberal politicians and the progressives who vote for them. The only thing that will fix that is for Pro2A voters to get off their arses and actually get out and vote for a candidate that actually has a chance of winning.

I went to lunch today at Solo Pizza in Leesburg. It used to be Pizzarella but it's under new management. I had on my usual CZ P-07.

When the waitress brought out my check she mentioned my discount. I asked what discount. She asked if I worked for the county. I told her I didn't. She said I looked like someone who did. We both shrugged and I got to keep the discount.

I think she saw my flight coat and the pistol and figured I was a cop. I'm not and never even implied I was. I did talk to a cop on the way over. I asked why he had a Charger and another deputy in the complex had a Crown Vic. If it was a rank or seniority thing. He didn't know either. I did pet his dog, though. The dog was not a cop. ;)

While returning from visiting family in Michigan we stopped and spent last Friday night (11 May) at the Courtyard Marriott (Winchester medical center). No notice/reaction to my OC firearm that night or the next morning nor at the nearby IHOP where we charged ourselves up before hitting the road.

Had to be in NoVA yesterday no issues.
Surprised at how many new places/things went up since my last visit.

Hey Jason! Good to see you.

I OC much less in summer, primarily because aside from jeans (way too hot) there is no good way.

I'd like to think OC has become less noteworthy, but I suspect we're facing the "silent majority" syndrome.
