    Today's OC Experience

    I OC'd around town today. First time in a good while. Went into several shops to pick up various needed products and supplies. You know what happened??? - Nothing.

    Just goes to show that if we don't make a big deal out of it then nobody else is likely to, either.

    Back in the day when I lived where OC was legal, that was much the same result I experienced. What was shocking once loses its effect after a while.

    It's accepted here. I OC 99% of the time. No one even bats an eye over it.

    I have not experienced any problems in Bellevue KY. I had one comment from a Coke vendor at a local convenient store and an uninformed LEO. But that's it!

    Location is EVERYTHING! On the Vegas strip a seven feet tall, cross-dressing, she-male with a two-foot feather purple, sparkling head-dress wouldn't grab a second glance. But an OCed 1911 in a OWB holster would attract a crowd.

    In rural Kentucky, the attention is exactly reversed. We're not afraid of guns, but nine feet of transgender attire...gives us the woolies.

    Thats the usual. Most people will look at your face and never notice whats on your hip. If the antis ever give you trouble, just remember....PATIENCE!!!! Or walk away. Good luck and good job! One more gun on a good guy means another deterrent to a bad guy.

    Kids will..They see it more often than adults. Maybe a combination of being short and curious

    That's my experience. Reasonably frequently, kids seem to stare as it passes by at eye level. Mostly though, folks don't even see it; and nearly everyone who does see it doesn't seem to care.

    Let's hope that continued common carrying leads to common acceptance that it's only criminals who are the threat. It seems to be moving in that direction, in many OC states.

    An LEO asked me to conceal my firearm, I told him OC was legal. That's it. I won't say what PD.

    I have mixed results with OC here. People usually don't notice. I have gotten some scared reactions, some positive reactions, and I have been hassled by LEO once.
