You could have given your hand gun to your wife, then it would have been.....wait for it.......
OMG, it's a WOMAN with a gun!
Just kidding. Like others, people are just nutty when they see any firearm in the open and what's the big deal?

Do I understand that you went from OC to CC once you saw the cops? Why?
I'm not a lawyer or a LEO, just a pantload with a computer.
ITC, I didn't know if the town had a local law.

Canav, I had to skip The Dragon. We were not making the milage we wanted to. My wife was having trouble with the heat. Needed to be in VA Beach by a date. I have ridden it before and wanted to do it again.
I have to admit being unable to understand how a customer could be in such fear over seeing somebody with a holstered side-arm sitting in IHOP eating a meal. It makes no sense to me. Even though I live in a state that doesn't allow OC, if I saw somebody nonchalantly wearing a holstered weapon in IHOP, I would assume they were a cop either on or off duty. It would never even occur to me to call police. Now, if they were holding the gun in their hand, or acting oddly in some way, I guess I might take notice. But it just doesn't make sense if somebody is just sitting down eating a meal. I mean, if they had planned to come in and commit a robbery why would a person be wearing the gun openly and calmly eating their meal? People just don't think.

Has anyone EVER seen or heard of a thug wearing a gun in a holster - openly or concealed?
Seems to me that holster = "good guy."
The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

Yeah, I have. It doesnt happen often, but it does happen.

I live in a city where OC is a big no no. I would give a person OC'ing in Omaha a few looks and assess what kind of person they seem to be on the surface. But call the cops, no way, not unless they start doing something with that gun or acting inappropriately.
I am not accustomed to seeing OC so I would be keeping an eye on an OC'er, but that's it. Not afraid of them, just situational awareness.

Keep in mind, we are all gun nuts here. Of course we aren't scared by a holstered weapon. The average person may not even know that it is legal to open carry.
