I know it's been awhile since someone has posted on this thread, but hopefully I can ease the minds of those worried about scaring people by openly carrying a firearm, even if only a little bit. I know it's not a grand story, but I have actually been stopped on the street by regular people and thanked for carrying a firearm. Once at a speedway in Midland, at a K-Mart in Bay City, and even by a Baptist preacher at a Shell in Coleman, just to name a few. Doesn't sound to me that people are that worried about it. To quote a popular saying, "Keep calm and carry on."
That's because 4 years have passed since that was written and many people have blazed the trail. More people are aware of OC because of the early leaders.

And yet not a day goes that these same leaders today are vilified by OC Fudds.

- "Attention ******"
- "loss of surprise"
- "shot first"
- "scares the sheeple"
- "do more harm than good"
