    My guess is you were in Bucks county? You must have run across the wrong person at the wrong time.... I've seen several open carry at Giant, Amish market and other surrounding stores in that area without issue.One night my wife was at Kohls (next to the Shoprite on Oxford valley road) and a woman in line actually said to an open carrier "I feel safer knowing honest people carry guns". It happens both ways...Kudos to you for your response and moving on.

    Wait a second: is this the Kohl's in Ralph's Corner, across the street from Shop Rite? If so, I think the OCer who got the compliment from the woman in line was in fact me. This occurred several years ago, I was buying a gift for my wife's Christmas present at the jewelery counter. This was the week when that guy had murdered several people, and was 'on the loose'. She told me she felt better seeing me armed (I had a 44 magnum at the time), and that she had an LTCF too.

    This was the Kohl's near Oxford Valley road (RTE 1 and Oxford Valley---Yardley) and I think it was during the Eric Frein encounter? I don't know if it was you because then the woman (described by my wife) started talking about elections and said idiots would vote in Hitler simply because he smiles.

    Okay, I don't think it was me on that occasion. But, I had the exact same encounter at the Kohl's near me. Interesting

    reminds me of the female reporter interviewing a youth club. One of the events was teaching kids marksmanship with 22 rifles. She asked the head of the club if that was acceptable because he was outfitting the children to grow up being mass murderers.
    He asked her "So you grew up a young female, did you turn into a prostitute?"

    or some semblance of that encounter that happened back in the 80's
