open carry report

June 22 finely had some decent open carry weather when I have been around.

Seemed like when ever I was afforded the opportunely to go to town the last couple of months the weather has been cold or wet or a combination of both requiring outer wear of some type.

I was carrying my SR1911 in horse hide pancake holster with two spare mags in a horse hide holder.

While in town I stopped at my auto repair shop no problem there as the manager is one of us.

The local kwik trip never had a problem there.

My LP supplier no problems.

Had a dentist appointment the dentist is a hunter His assistant is named Kimber enough said.

Then on to Wal-Mart had a brief encounter with the head of security, nothing said about my handgun. But then I have known him for around 40 years..

All in all a fine day to open carry.
