OC to medical building went well
Good experience during a first-time visit to my new primary care doctor, a 2-hour visit with lots of staff and other patients around.
For you locals, it's the Rainbow Medical Center (1302 W Craig Rd) across from Home Depot. This is one of those medical buildings with a half-dozen doctors.
Spent about 1 hour in the open waiting area filling out all those first time patient forms (OMG, I hate those places, all sorts of sick people hanging around). Never less than eight or ten people with nobody seeming to notice.
Spent about 1 hour in the scary parts of the place. Everybody noticed, but no adverse reactions. Almost blew it when the med tech took my weight. I carry bandolier style due to my weight so I slipped the strap over my head. Just for an instant, I started to hand it to the tech to hold for me before I thought to myself .... :sign07: dumb $h#t!! Just laid it on a nearby cart within arms reach; only took a moment.
Might have made a convert. While waiting for the doctor in one of those teeny back rooms, the med tech brought in another tech, who was fascinated by guns, for a chat. Neither of them knew that NV was an open carry state. I educated for a while about why I carry -- self defense needed, better deterrence IMO of OC v. CC, places banning guns, etc. The guy left with a really big grin.
Doctor didn't seem to care. I took off the bandolier rig and laid it on the examining table while he listened to my lungs, so he couldn't have missed seeing it.
I hope this was another example that citizens are desensitizing to OC, and not just that nobody sees much of a threat from the overweight seasoned citizen.
Be safe out there. :wave:
