    Open Carry Experiences

    Thought it would be cool for people to describe their OC experiences, if they choose to open carry.

    I open carried in Chick-Fil-A today. It was a non-issue (as I expected). Everyone was friendly, didn't get any strange looks or anything like that.
    But as I left with my food, I heard the girl who gave me my food ask another employee what their policy for handguns was. I was already opening the door so I didn't stop to hear the conversation, but I debated going back to talk to them nicely. Instead I just kept walking out - I was polite the time I was there, said please and thank you, and no customers freaked out. I'm sure I was the first person OCing in there, and I think a few more encounters like that will show that they need not take any further action.
    Chick-Fil-A on 1960 and Atascocita Rd, Humble TX (near Houston).

    When the clock changed to 2016 last night.. I pictured thousands of Texans putting on their holsters and switching from Concealed to Open Carry at the stroke of midnight..

    My open carry experience has been very positive so far. Been to two thrift stores, a dollar store (can you tell I'm cheap?!) and Academy. Had a few conversations, employees have treated me nicer, and the two cops guarding the entrance to Academy couldn't have given a shit less. Overall impression I'm getting so far is most employees like having a good guy with a gun around. My experience with OCing in Roswell for a week was a lot less exciting, probably because everyone there is so used to it already.

    At any rate, who would have thought carrying a gun would be a way to win friends and influence people? If you're in a rush then cover that gun because people WILL want to talk with you about it.

    OC has very good potential to change the culture here for the better regarding firearms.

    When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
    An' go to your Gawd like a soldier!

    Absolutely (I hope).

    My Whataburger in Red Oak is not 30.07 posted. I didn't take my jacket off till after I ordered. They may not have noticed when I got a refill, but I OC'd.
