    Shout out to exemplary WA OC'er

    I hope you are on this board. I saw you while my wife and son were eating dinner at Olive Garden in Federal Way just a few nights ago. You pulled up in a jeep, and carried what looked like an XD SC or compact Glock. You held the door for your lady, carried yourself in a respectful way and were courteous to staff. You didn't seem to be one of those who craved attention to the fact you were OC'ing either; it was as if it was the most normal thing in the world to you, as it should be.

    It was cool to see the staff of the restaurant taking it all in stride and not even giving it more than a quick second glance, at least by what I could tell.

    Thank you for the example you set in the public eye for all the rest of us who carry, whether CC or OC.

    Wait a minute....you mean there weren't a dozen bad guys jumping out and shooting him, so they could take his gun?

    Glad to hear of your observations. That's the way it should be done, and what most of us have advocated.

    That's cool... Even though WA is OC, I seldom see it happen. My local Family Pancake House has an OC club meeting there monthly...

    I see it a lot in the Burien/Renton area but only once when I was living in Ballard.

    Ive OC'ed in Issaquah Sammamish area a few times, havent gotten any neg reactions, most people believe your law enforcement, which is pretty upsetting because they obvioulsy arent aware that WA state is an Open Carry state or even have any idea what 'carry' is referring to.

    You obviously were not in NC as they sell alcohol in Olive Garden which negates your right to carry in these parts...jus sayin...

    I'm pretty sure you're mistaken. He was clearly flexing his arms and striking macho poses, because anyone that OC's has an inferiority complex and likes to show off. :P

    Just kidding, that's pretty great to see.

    As far as carrying in a restaurant: I don't know about down there, but up here OCing is permissible in a place that serves and sells liquor as long as it's a restaurant.

    In WA you can carry a gun in a restaurant that serves liquor, just not in the 21 and over area (the bar).

    Here's one of our fellow Washatonians that wasn't greeted so nicely:

    VANCOUVER, Wash. —

    A man who openly carries a pistol alarmed an employee when he went shopping at the Vancouver Westfield Shopping Center.

    Derek Mendiola told KATU ( Man carries gun openly into mall, gets verbal lashing | Local & Regional | KATU.com - Portland News, Sports, Traffic Weather and Breaking News - Portland, Oregon) he was harassed Wednesday for exercising his right.

    The mall general manager, Paige Moreau, said firearms are prohibited at the mall, which is private property.

    Mendiola says he'll leave his gun at home next time.

    In December, a man killed two people and wounded a third before killing himself at the Clackamas Town Center mall in suburban Portland.

    I've taken a few verbal lashings and I'll tell you it sure beats getting shot.
