    OC incident at Starbucks...

    A funny incident happened yesterday at the same Starbucks that has the woman who freaks out at the sight of a Glock T shirt or a cap.

    A guy came in, plain clothes with a 1911 in an OWB holster. He had no badge on his belt so I thought he was a citizen who was open carrying. There was a dead silence and everyone there just stopped talking. So this guy is followed by 7-8 more guys, all open carrying, no badges. You should have seen the look on everyones faces. I wish I had my camera.

    One of them asked the guys, "Is errr..err everything ok? Why do you all have guns?" "We're cops ma'am" and he shows her his badge from his wallet.

    She seemed releived and said "Oh, I thought you were just ordinary guys with guns." He then told her it was legal for a citizen to open carry in WA state and that there was no reason for her to be alarmed.

    I took my coffee and stepped outside and saw a bunch of unmarked cars, from Escalades to Impalas all lined up.

    You should have shook their hands!
    Is this going back more future than we were?

    +1, wouldn't it have been better if you were OCing at the time too. Good officers who know the laws.

    So she wasn't scared they were there to rob or shoot up the place? She was more scared that they were "ordinary guys with guns?"

    And I would've paid for the cop's coffee who told her it was perfectly legal to OC. He get's a +1 in my book.

    Priceless. He might be a member here. That would be great.

    Back home, I OCed at Starbucks a lot. I never had an issue.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    I wouldn't mind trying it and seeing the reaction here in Richmond, except I'd rather drink sewer water than Starbuck coffee!

    I keep seeing these OC stories on here and feel real jealous.

    That is just funny right there. It kind of reminds me of a stranger walking into an old western saloon and the whole place goes silent when he walks in. Only in this case it was eight of them!
