Good story. Info I was looking for.
This is a discussion on Really interesting OC/LEO encounter at Subway... within the Open Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Good story. Info I was looking for....
great encounter...here in the land of fruit and nuts...we would of been shot!!!
Never know when LEOs are watching, bit in this case, I guess you did. :).
Glad everything worked out.
An excellent experience. Nice to see that some of the cadets in today's LE Academies are learning the proper way to interact with someone who may be OC'ing. Not every cop has to be an Anal-izer like the one that stopped my wife and I when he saw me OC'ing.

I've been hesitant to OC here in PA, just because I don't want to have to educate folks and prefer to CC. However, whenever I read threads like this it makes me think that perhaps I should exercise my OC right. My town is pretty small, can't go anywhere without bumping into acquaintances, and the anti's are everywhere. Good post, Mike, maybe I'll step up to the plate.
When I ride any of my motorcycles, I don't worry about t-shirts flapping in the breeze because we can open carry and have never had any bad encounters, so maybe it's time to rethink my POV on OC.
Exercise your 2nd amendment rights....not doing so jeopardizes that right for everyone.
As jwhite noted;
way to "stick to your guns" (pun intended) with the young guy. So often I see people who let fear of LEO change their feelings. By this I mean people assume that if an LEO asks them about something they believe they have done something wrong. As has been stated police arent lawyers. If you know what you are doing is legit, you shouldnt have anything to worry about.
Glad it came out more positive than merely not being noticed!
Stop posting and talk to an attorney...oh, wait.
Very good! Thanks for sharing!
