An enemy of liberty is no friend of mine. I do not owe respect to anyone who would enslave me by government force, nor is it wise for such a person to expect it. -- Isaiah Amberay
It is legal to carry in a financial institution but not concealed?? Am I understanding that correctly?

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
I was ocin' during a DUI check point this weekend, of course when he only asked to see my license I didn't even mention the pistol or my chp. So in reality no one knew it was there except me.
Here's a list of some of my OC "non-event" locations.
Wal Marts (sorta, aside from one incident)
I don't normally OC but maybe it's worth a try every once in a while! Just to keep the general public on their toes! lol
"Gun control is being able to hit your target."
Don't usually OC but have with no problems at: WalMart, Several stores in my local Mall, Church, Various Restaurants in my area.

Of course, I live in northern Nevada. if I'd done this 20 miles west of here, in California, I probably would have been arrested several times and had my gun seized. <wry grin>
Giant Grocery store
Red Robin... (all sit down resturants)
McDonlands... (Pretty much all fast food)
Lowes... until recently
My latest non-incident was at the blood donation center today. They obviously saw my 1911, but not a word was said. I've CCed in the donation center every time I've been there, but wasn't wearing a jacket today, and didn't want to leave my gun in the car.
Non-incidents are the norm for me. I can't exactly recall the last time somebody said something negative to me about my gun.
