    I'm going to see what all the fuss is about today

    I'm getting ready to go run some errands all over town, its a super nice day and I'm going to OC. No badge, just a tucked in shirt, a nice pair of shorts and my 228. I just want to see what all the excitement is about. I'll report back tonight.

    edit; OK, maybe not shorts. My chicken legs have been covered all winter, they can use a little work first. I don't want people distracted by my legs.

    I open carry more and more. Its a very liberating feel, I usually wear my shirts untucked anyway so I VA tuck unless I am going into a buisness then I'll pull my shirt back over it

    If you really want to test it...

    Don't shave... except the cop mustache

    Wear some old ratty clothes with holes in them

    baseball cap sideways or turned backards

    report back how it feels to be tazed or sprayed in a real world situation

    On second thought, that's probably not a good idea

    Sixto,

    Is this the community that you patrol or another community?

    Do you know the LEO's in this community?

    Go get em tiger. But a LEO carrying openly while off duty, hmmm hope it doesn't feel like work. Keep in mind that it probably feels differently for those of us that don't do it for a living and some folks feel "we should not be able to at all." Just sayin. Enjoy yourself. I'll be interested in hearing how others react to it, if they react at all.

    I went to the dark side today. I broke out my supertuck to carry to the range and practice shooting from a draw. No one freaked out, no one noticed, Oh never mind it was under my shirt.

    OK, if you must, but don't come crying to us on the forum when some old lady screams *man with a gun* and the Walmart manager throws you out on your ear.

    Pasty legs, short shorts, hostered gun, I don't know Sixto. Someone may confuse you with that guy on "Reno 911"
    If you cannot stand behind our troops feel free to stand in front of them.

    GOD BLESS AMERICA!

    If you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself..."Baa."
