thnx for comment
Thrice welcome, Sir!

Another stalwart determined to hold the line here in the Bluegrass State!

Typical that a visitor from the PRI would get excited about an open carried pistol!

Welcome aboard, and thank you for being a good ambassador for all of us, especially we Kentucky boys, whether home brewed or transplants like myself!

Best wishes,

TrueBrit.

Yep I have O.C. every day sometimes questioned sometimes not.

Have not been questioned by LEO yet, when I do hope it goes as well!

I have found from many officers, and fence sitters, that you will get treated with the same respect you give them. If you are rational and don't blow up and become defensive from the get go, you will find that they are usually receptive to your reasoning.

Ocassionally, you come across fanatics, there is no reasoning with these people most of the time, so don't get down on yourself if/when this happens.

Glad to hear all went well, and you educated a citizen(s) in the process!
