An OC Encounter Kind Of Day
First had to pick up tables and chairs for the picnic tomorrow at the rental center in Mt. Pocono. Now I have talked to this guy before but as I walk in he says "Hey it's the gun guy" and then goes on to say "You know, what you are doing there carrying like that is so important these days, I gotta thank you". Before I can say anything he goes on to say "This country has lost its mind and we have to show these clowns we aren't backing down"

Spent a few minutes talking about other BS grabbed my tables and chairs and split.

Over to Shoprite. I had to excuse myself in one aisle to get a husband and wife out of the middle of the damn aisle and passed the guy strong side. I turn the corner and start down the next aisle and I hear 'Sir, Sir' ... turn around and here's the guy I just passed trying to flag me down. He starts "Are you a cop?" to which I response "Nope". He then goes on "So you can carry openly like that in PA?" ... so I give him the abbreviated version of the speech and when I get to 'if you get into a car you need your license' when he stops me and says "Yeah I have my license, I don't carry because I was afraid someone would see it and I would get into trouble" ... needless to say I'm pretty sure the guy will start carrying tomorrow. Wink

Standing in the checkout there's a guy at the end where the groceries get pushed to and his wife (or girlfriend) beside me. I start putting things on the belt and I hear something out of the guys mouth which I couldn't make out and as I turn first his wife is looking at my hip and then the checkout girl and I hear him say, "American, gotta love it" ... as I look toward him he points and says "PA is an open carry state?" to which I reply "Yup", he smiles and says "That's so cool" ... my guess is they are tourists.
I have encounters like that from time-to-time, but never 3 in one day. Must be yer perfume. Do you smell like chili or something?

A couple years ago, on a Saturday afternoon while the wife and I were out running errands and desperate for some low-rent junk food, we stopped at a nearby Taco Bell. The young guy running the counter was very interested in my OC and we had a little time to talk while waiting for our order. I remember him expressing an interest in OCing himself when he hit 21 and could get his LTCF.

Fast-forward to a couple months ago and I'm out late at night and decide to stop in at a nearby Sheetz. As I'm waiting for my MTO I hear "Open Carry!" ... and "Remember me?" and I did, it was the young guy from Taco Bell now open-carrying his own Ruger in a Serpa!

I can't say he was OCing just because of our chat years ago, he was pretty interested on his own. But it was really neat to see. I ran into him again just last week at Rutters, still OCing, everywhere he goes I guess. Big Grin
