    So, I'm in the store tonight getting some dinner and I walk past a guy who has all kinds of goodies hanging off of his belt. I could only see the left side of him but I could clearly see what looked like a stun gun, extra mag case and cell phone.

    As he passed I turned to see he was also open carrying a Glock. Then to my surprise the woman he was with was also open carrying a gun. I couldn't tell what it was other than a semi-auto. Normally I just shrug it off and go about my B-ness but then I thought of ya'll and how much a picture of this scene would be GT gold.

    I took the picture and went over to them. We had a nice conversation talked guns, carry issues, etc. I asked what his GT handle was he laughed and said he wasn't a member. So I told him I took the picture and asked if they would mind if I posted it here. They said fine with them so here it is.

    There's more to this but I think that is enough to get this ball rolling.

    Thoughts?

    It is good that you asked if you could take the photo and post it.

    That's interesting, CFN. I've never seen an OC'ing couple before either. Thanks for sharing. :wavey:

    Not surprised, while some of us don't mind OC, unfortunately a lot people tend to go straight to stereo types and demonize people when they see OC. I'm Hispanic so I used to get the gangbanger stereo type back before I had my CCW. They are probably getting the backwoods, nut job stereo types.

    One lady was hovered trying to hear our conversation. Not sure what she thought, not sure I care.

    Forget the OC, load up on the butter -- that's a great price.

    Where are the pictures of the SWAT team storming the grocery store after a "concerned citizen" called 911?

    For some reason seeing her reminds me of the song by Rod Stewart - You wear it well. :dunno:

    Nice...

    Not that long ago I was at a Walmart and saw someone OCing. Nobody batted a eye except these two saggy pants teenagers that were a bit disturbed by it "is that a cop, don't look like no cop" "yeah, but he's got a piece". You could tell they didn't like it. That was priceless.

    Can't an American exercise his 2nd Amendment right & pick out which style of Country Crock he wants without his privacy being invaded?

    By which you mean, "oblivious to their surroundings and that a stranger has zeroed in on them and their weapons"?

    Yeah, a bit, though it's hard to tell from a single snapshot.

    Likely impossible to do without being detected but that scene would have made a great YouTube video. Probably would have gone viral on the gun boards...

    She probably has a gun at home in her nightstand and just wanted some pointers on carrying. You should have invited her into the conversation.

    ....must avoid making snide comment about butter....

    Seriously though,

    It is nice to see people OCing. In Ohio I've only ever seen it once. It was a dude on a harley with a nice Sig 226
