    Problems in carrying in my church

    I open carry nearly everywhere EXCEPT church. It’s the one exception I make to a place where I could legally OC. I don’t have a problem with it. I would not have a problem if someone did OC there either. I do open carry my Sword, but my firearm is concealed.

    how to fix walmart

    I open carried in Walmart yesterday and bought groceries. No issues, but I’m not sure anyone noticed other than the self checkout assist lady, who has seen me OC for three years. Last Sunday on my weekly shopping I went to the competition in town, then took my receipt to Walmart while OC and...

    Problems in carrying in my church

    Ok, I’ll dabble my toes in the water. A topic I can resemble. I’m very close to this position, tho not on any formal security team. As weather permits, I wear a sport coat or vest. Some of my vests may allow a short bit of barrel to poke out the bottom. No one has said anything. In the summer...

    Showing ID to police

    Yes, they’ve pretty much ruined a great city. Sounds like you’ve had your eyes opened and came down on the side of liberty. Wish my daughter could see the truth. Sadly, going in the other direction.

    Non carry done wrong.....

    In the local Abbotsford paper. Not me, though my wife thought I was telling her about me when I was reading it to her. Last line not shown just says they are not filing any charges. Not sure what the guy did wrong other than not having an appointment, and being an idiot. I could probably come up...

    I believe I am responsible for a no gun sign being installed......

    Wife’s father is at a low rent assisted living facility in Medford, Wi. Every Sunday after church, I drop her off there, go grocery shopping, go back to pick her up. Open carry in summer, but conceal at church. Conceal if I need a jacket. So, basically I have been walking in there all summer...

    OCed into RedEye in Wausau, millennial microbrewery.

    Go to Wausau about every third Monday to take my Mom out to lunch. She's 83 and drives but just to her bank, the PO and a grocery store. So we ran some errands, replaced her wiper blades, and bought her a plant for Mom's Day. My brother took her out of town for the weekend. She has some...

    Is open carry a FIRST Amendment Right?

    How so you ask? I'm making a statement. What is it? Don't mess with me. If burning and walking on the Flag is protected by the First Amendment, why not a Firearm? Way off base? Any legs to stand on? I'm mulling it over and thinking of including this idea into my conversation with people...

    Open Carry conversations, Pigeon Falls, Whitehall, Osseo

    Went down to Whitehall to put a clutch in a John Deere G, and pick up half a hog from Falls Meat Market. Owner of the meat market talked to me about 20 minutes about hunting, the election, how busy he was and how long since he had a day off. No mention of OC 226, which is hard to miss. Went to...
