    Open carry non-incidents

    In light of recent threads where folks mentioned non-incidents, I figured maybe a thread listing some places you've open-carried without trouble?

    Rather than the details, just a list of a few notable places, like so:

    Uncounted numbers of restaurants, grocery stores, and gas stations.

    Outside the first of the Presidential debates in Manchester, NH.
    In tavern where the Ron Paul rally was held, after the debate (confusing the CNN reporter, who noted to his consternation that there were more armed civilians than security guards)

    Many times, camping.

    The list could go on, but that's probably the case for many of us. I guess the idea is to list a few places that you feel are worth note, even without the whole story.

    Wal-Mart
    McDonalds
    Dennys
    Taco Bell
    A few gas stations
    Grocery stores

    Local dining holes, Lowe's, Home Depot, Gas Stations, Food Lion, and a few more. Never an incident. Never a question.

    Oh, I should add the Men's Warehouse in Nashua, a few years back. Was concealed, going in, but I was buying my suit for my wedding, so I had to try things on. No problem. (given that Nashua is on the Mass border, sometimes folks are less than gun-friendly, but it went smoothly)

    The thing about OC is that just about every hunter in every state does it. Yet, for all those people who openly carry a loaded weapon, a remarkably FEW number of fatalities actually occur.

    Personally, I don't understand the "No open carry" states. If hunters can, why not non-hunters? Is this based on some sort of privileged class of individuals who can afford to buy a license?

    We can also add Sun Trust Bank to that list of places to OC without incident. Er, depending on your state laws and all.
