    OC @ sub shop

    I went to lunch with a buddy the other day. I had my G19 in an OWB holster. I started to get my suit coat, but he said don't bother, so I didn't. OC to the local sub shop, no one even seemed to notice.

    I would assume he was dressed in a business suit.

    Your personal dress and bearing has a lot to do with whether or not you are hassled with OC, from what I can tell.

    The only crooks that rob you wearing are suit are usually in Congress.

    When I OC (which is always) I'm usually wearing a black pocket tee (for my smokes) and a pair of jeans.

    I've never had any problems, an I tend to OC in downtown Nashville and East Nashville.

    Glad you had an uneventful OC experience.

    I OC all the time here in the Memphis area and I still have never had a bad OC experience with another civilian or a LEO.

    Our local Subway shop knows us (me the wife and kids) on sight and has told me a few times that he likes it when my wife and I are in there OC'ing our XDs. He's a permit holder as well and likes to see others exercising their rights.

    I'm glad to see more and more people are open carrying! The OC movement is a growing one.

    When I had a firearm (in process of replacing), I would OC or CC, just depended on mood. I went into a CVS Pharmacy, its the one closest to me, also a 24/hr one that has been robbed a few times a year. I was OC'ing and the pharmisist did not car, only the little old lady sitting there staring at me while I talked to the staff. It felt weird, and I was waiting on the police, but it was non-eventful, just like it should be.

    Same as what I can tell.
    A lot of people post on here from TN. I only go once every year or 2 years.I like there HCP. Wish MO could have done about the same thing.

    Anyway I always wear cargo shirts and a nice T and my rafter S belt. I have had that thing for 6 years and wore it every day.
