I just got back from a cross country motorcycle trip. It was extremly hot, upper 90's/100 degrees. More on the highway. My ccw was getting soaked with sweat and was rusting after the first day. Also it was rubbing my side raw. So I went to Open Carry.org.
I found most of the states I was going through were open carry friendly. I don't usually open carry but it sounded like a good idea.
Had no problems in Kansas and MO. Had to lock it up in ILL. Went back to open carry in Tenn., N.C. and VA. Open carried around VA Beach,Hamden and Cheasepeake. Headed home. Checked states again. Going great until Salina KS. Wife and I are in IHop eating breakfast. I see a cruiser roll up. I think mabe they have an ordinance about open carry. I untuck my shirt. Officer comes in. Second officer comes in. Officer #1 asks do you have a gun. Yes. Do you have a permit? Yes. Can I see? Yes. Driver license? Yes. You passing through? Yes. Been to a law enforcement motorcycle conference. Officer #1 Enjoy your breakfast. Me "You be safe." The waitress comes up after they leave and asks is every thing ok? I said yes I am legal. When we were leaving the manager came out and apoligised. She said a customer had seen my gun and called. She said he was scared. I said he would have really freaked out if I had been wearing my colors.
I guess I should of whipped out my cell phone and called a lawyer. LOL
Sixto, The officer was very polite and just did his job. I got no BS from him. He did not shake my hand though.
