    Default Open carry report for this week

    So while my mom and sister were here visiting from California I decided I was still going to OC despite their objections, this is a complete list of places that I went to and OCed:

    Philly Airport, no issues.
    Hotel, nothing.
    Ruby Tuesdays in Philly, nothing.
    The Philly Diner (Next day for breakfast). I had one question from a patron, but after I explained the law that was it.

    I disarmed for the monuments (Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Constitution center, and the US Mint) Irony just sucks huh?
    I CCed in the King of Prussia mall... something just told me security would boot my ass out.
    Drove home and OCed again at the Bass Pro (Harrisburg mall), not a stare.
    Greenvillage Diner for breakfast, nothing.

    Sheetz for gas. There was a state trooper parked out front with his window down. My sister made the comment that "you shouldn't do that there’s a cop right there". To which I said I'm doing nothing illegal and got out of the car and went in. Nothing but a few stares. Nothing from the LEO.

    Hershey park, left the gun in the car 1. Because I was going to the water park all day and I don't want to CC in the pool and 2. Park security at the gate "for all of our guests safety, please leave all undesirable objects in your vehicle"

    Dinner at Casey’s Restaurant in Greencastle... at this point my mom was irritated that I OCed so much and gave me the "can't you leave it at home just this once". I said I'm not going without my firearm and that its going with us. She asked me to cover up, to which I objected again. I OCed without an issue.

    Forgot to add: I OCed at Midas and Giant grocery store with my mom. I had to get my car inspection done and picked up a few things from the store (besdes my mom rolling her eyes) I had no issues.

    Drove back to Philly, and I OCed at the airport again, no issue.
    Got gas in the city somewhere near 1-696 I got a few stares, but nothing.
    Rest stop on the turnpike... besides the abundance of Jersey plates and stares, I ate my lunch and was on my way.

    Over all it was an uneventful week.

    Good to hear no problems, other than family stuff.
    Keep up the good work.

    If your mother is anything like mine, she'll get over it eventually, once she realizes most people don't care about it.

    Ya it is, but I really didn't want to forfeit my 45 dollar ticket and get asked to leave if they decided to wand me. Believe me I would have carried, but between being in a swim suit, and having to leave other stuff in the stroller it would have been a retention issue, and the chlorine in the pool wouldn't have been good for it. It was more of a personal choice, not because I "couldn't".

    Edit: I didn't get the joke til afterwards... lol

    Did you actually see them wanding people? When I was there last year it was just half-assed bag searches.
