Western Idaho Fair: Security and Deputies
My experience with security at the front gate. Three private security guards after the ticket booth but before the turnstile. Two Ada County Deputy Sheriffs just past the turnstile.
Sec guards checking purses, hand bags etc. I don't have any such bags. Am open carrying my Colt 1911 Gov't Model at 4 oclock in my Black Hawk Serpa.
Sec Guard #1 turns from the person whose bag he has just cleared of having any weapons hidden. Looks at me and then to my 1911. Looks up and says "Handgun in holster, ok have a nice day!"
Security guards #'s 2 and 3: Keep talking to each other.
Ada County Deputies: Glance down at my hip and continue their conversation.
Encounters with 4 more Ada Deputies and numerous Security Guards throughout the evening with the same results.
No screaming children or panic stricken victims except the ones robbed by the $4 sodas and Ice Cream Cones!
Great times were had by all!
