    Smile Open Carried for the 1st time

    A little back ground, I have been carrying concealed for a little over 10yrs now. Got my permit when I turned 21. For those 10yrs, I have never OC'd. Well I got a part-time job where I can carry. I had to stop by the bank Saturday. I walked in OC'ing, waited in line, deposited my check and left without a hitch. While I was in line they kept saying code 1, I don't know what that means. So my first time OC'ing was at a bank :) This bank use to have a no firearm sign at the door, but it's gone now.

    The code 1. What did you observe going on around you while this was going on if anything?

    I go to the same branch location of my bank 90% of the time and always CC inside (when I need money orders..otherwise I drive up). One of the male employees that's obviously supervisory in some capacity unknown to me, always seems to get itchy when I'm in there when he's out and about. A couple of weeks ago, he was busy with a contractor for the drive thru tubes (Diebold or something), and I got a chance to check him out while he was occupied with that ordeal, and I'm now betting he carries. Thing is, at this bank location I always seem to raise suspicion since at a mere 6'1" tall, I tend to seem out of place since I don't think anyone in that bank is over 5'4".

    That which does not kill us leaves us broken and bleeding...

    Donít mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

    I am unaware of that, where did you get that info?

    I cannot find any Kentucky statute that prohibits it.

    I've seen on our local news in La Crosse, WI that they ask people not to wear hoods and sunglasses when they walk into a bank...and i think maybe a few other things...but it never listed guns! I think a few local guys said they have OCed into a bank before...I haven't. But I don't go to the bank often anyhow. In WI you have to keep your gun unloaded and encased while in a vehicle...so unless I'm gonna be shopping for a while, I might not even bring a gun with me.
