    Default My first open carry

    I open carried today for the first time, but it was by accident. I have nothing against OC, I just prefer to CC for now (I've been working up the nerve to OC sometime). When I left the house this morning, I was wearing my G26 in a Fobus paddle holster (dislike it, and will be replaced with a Serpa soon). This is my only OWB holster, and the rivets on it scratch my skin a little bit, so I put my t-shirt behind it. I was CC though, because I had a sweatshirt on since it was chilly this morning.

    When I left work, it was much warmer, so off came the sweatshirt. On my way home, I stopped at the beer distributor and went in without remembering that my gun was showing. No one gave me a weird look, screamed, or called the police. I doubt any of the people inside even noticed it. I may have to start OCing more often.

    Rep sent. Welcome to the "dark side".
    While many claim to support the right, precious few support the practice.

    Rep to you, even if it was by accident! It's not exactly rocket science. People simply don't see it.

    And those that do notice usually don't care.

    I think most people get a glimpse of something hanging from your hip and assume it's a cell phone or pda.... those are more common place. Only people who are scared out of their mind, or are carrying as well, notice it's a gun. IMHO

    Don't feel bad, I OC'd to the CU today. Was nervous as hell, but nothing happened.
    So I'll be less tense the next time.
