I have carried concealed foryears. I have been around guns all of my life and I will be 50 this year. I didn't think I would get nervous at all. I went into a rather busy King Soopers on South Broadway. No one seemed to notice but maybe one lady. I thought this is no big deal. I grabbed a couple of things I needed for my elk stew and headed to the "do it yourself register". That's when the cashier came over and made a comment. He said "it's legal for you to carry that gun in Colorado". Buck fever set in instantly. I said "it sure is". I can't belive it made me so stinking nervous. Well at least the first one is out of the way. I'll be going back out this afternoon for my second open carry!
