    G26 in Comp Tac C-TAC, polo fully tucked (behind the gun). Went to West Lafayette Walmart, a gas station and a McDonalds. All were pretty busy, including a lot of employees in the Walmart beginning to restock. I am sure people noticed but nobody said anything or had an adverse reaction.

    Good work!

    I carried openly in two states yesterday! After a multi-gun match in Kentucky, we stopped at a convenience store and the shirt I was wearing over everything in the morning was locked in the back of the truck, so I just went inside. No comments, although I have had some curiosity from clerks there during visits in the past (nothing negative).

    Then in Indiana I went into the convenience store at the Marathon in Cloverdale on US231, no issues.

    Then I patronized a gas station here in my hometown; no issues.

    I've never had any problems in Tippecanoe County and I've carried long guns around.

    Only place I've ever been asked if I had a LTCH was in the tiny burg of Wheatfield, Indiana. I stopped for coffee and the town marshall (not in uniform) was there. I showed him mine and he showed me his.:supergrin: :animlol:

    It has become second nature to me to open carry, especially with warmer weather. Usually keep some sort of vest in the car, but I don't always rememberize to put it on :animlol:
     
  5. What the heck!

    There wasn't widespread panic, women screaming, children crying, men fetching bats and clubs.

    In addition to widespread, mass hysteria, I suspect that open carry causes GLOBAL WARMING! :animlol:

    Yes, Algore told me that open carrying scares the polar bears which causes IBS among the bears because of their fish and seal-heavy diet which contributes to the greenhouse gases and Global Warming.

    The only cure for Global Warming is to purchase polar bear gas offsets when you open carry. These offsets are available from me.

    Send one case of .308 or .45acp to Kirk Freeman, 200 Ferry Street, Suite L, Lafayette, Indiana 47901 for each day you open carry.:banana:

    I meant to post this a while back. A few weeks ago, I went to Turkey Run with my gf and our dogs (German Shepherd & a Doberman), I open carried my glock 21 in a Serpa holster. I only got one weird look that I noticed.

    Skpot, you must send me 2 cases of .308 to offset your carbon pollution for your trip to Turkey Run.

    I even witnessed a gentlement openly carrying a 1911 at Turkey Run before the administrative regulations were cleared up...inside the nature center. Everybody had to know. Nobody cared. :)

    (Mine was concealed)

    Well . . . maybe it was mostly locals that day! We're a bit more enlightened in that regard than, say, a park visitor from Chicago or the east coast.

    Let's keep vigilant and do what we can to make the current rules permanent (and maybe even improve them some more).

    Why is it I keep forgetting that state parks are NOW LEGAL?
    Man, it's a pain to keep track of the patchwork of in-bounds vs out-of-bounds over time. Let alone visiting OTHER states.

    When did OHIO drop reciprocity?

    Never had it with Indiana. I believe the reason is we don't have mandatory training.

    oops. oh well, I've been carrying in Ohio afoul of the law, then. :)

    See, it's hard. What should I do, walk up to a cop in the state and ask? :)
