    Odd occuranc while OCing

    On Sunday my wife and I were out doing some casual shopping. We were in a small community at a KFC/Taco Bell for lunch. While eating a young man (25-30) wearing a blue Tee-shirt with a large NRA on the front came up to us. He wanted to shake my hand. I asked him for what? He looked at the Colt Python on my side and said something like "For keeping a free Virginia". OCing is fairly common in central Virginia. I shook his hand and told him I have been carrying for more than 15 years. Truth be told it has been about 30 years. He then went on his way. I felt good but at the same time a little strange. First time this has happened. When someone does notice I usually get the "Are you a cop" or the claim that open carrying is illegal (not true in Virginia). Most of the time I explain it is legal and that I am a police officer off-duty on personal business.

    I wish open carry was practiced more around here. It is legal but it isn't common. I open carry when I work outside but CC when going out. I don't feel like dealing with any potential hassle.

    it is nice to hear you had a good experience
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    I love the people who walk up and hold out their left hand, when thank you for OCing. I don't like shaking people's hands with my "strong" hand while carrying.

    Awesome guy though.
