    I saw my first OC'er today...

    I was at the Detroit Zoo today with my fam, and I was CC'ing. We were walking and my wife and I both seen the gentleman at same time. My wife says "Is he ..." and I said sure is. I really want to go shake his hand but he may have thought I was weird. Ha ha. Anyways, just wanted to tell that little story.

    It is fairly common here in KY.

    I saw three OC at Poage Landing Days last year.

    You see it all the time around here. (WI) it was legal before we got our CCL.

    I see a few around locally but unfortunately, sad to say, they usually don't look like folks I'd care to stop and have a casual conversation with.

    I've seen people not so much open carry as being a lazy arse about concealing.

    Unfortunately I really don't see it that often here in upper east tennessee. However, I do see them occasionally, and saw three one day a few weeks back. That was a good day.

    ^^^ This ^^^ Seems like they've all got that "Come on, I dare you" look on their face.

    Great . . . Now Whataburger will be "asking" customers to not carry in the business.

    I always heard great things about Whataburger (Never seen one before) so while I was in CA I stopped in to one. Totally unimpressed with it. I'd rather stop at the King.
