    How do you feel when in the presence of LEOcers while OCarrying or CCarrying ? Do you get nervous ? or uncomfortable ?

    I do not go for the OC, but regardless, why would you feel different around LE?

    I still don't OC (holster is on order), but when I first started CC I went through the normal process of thinking "OMG I KNOW I'm printing", "That cop is gonna put me on the ground", or generally expecting the SWAT team to arrive any minute.

    Now its no big deal. If I print, I print, I'm not gonna worry about it. If I'm near a LEO I don't get nervous anymore.

    I think that its all normal phases that a person goes through.

    You have to realize that my GUN is all the the probable cause they NEED.

    Depends on where I am. Most of the time, no I don't worry over it.
    I'm normally nicely dressed when I'm OC (though this shouldn't matter) and I'm normally not tooo shabily(sp?) dressed at any time. However I've been carrying for less than a year so occasionally I still get a bit nervous period.

    An this is always true

    It gets easier with time. You just have to get used to the fact that you are doing nothing wrong.

    No...someone said he was trying to become one. Last I heard he was still working at the gun store full time.

    My bad. Thank God (or GSM) that he's not a LEO.

    Having met budder before, I can think of quite a few other probable causes they could get just by looking at him.

    I must admit to getting nervous sometimes. It has turned out to be unjustified in every instance.

    I still do not get it. I have carried in the presence of many LE and have one problem with one officer. No big deal. Where are you guys hanging out, that cops pull guns on you, take your bullets, and what were you doing while this took place?
