    Few days ago, pulled into a local convenience store. Noticed as I parked that a Henry County Police officer was parking at the same time further from the store entrance than I. Got out and walked to the store, never looking his way, though I could hear his footsteps behind me.

    I went down one aisle, grabbed what I wanted, turned around and headed for the cashier. He was heading down the aisle next to me as I glanced his way.

    He completely ignored me and the sidearm on my hip.

    And to save you the trouble - yes, that's just the way it should be.

    My first thought is that he was trying to discreetly case you. Was he getting something in that aisle?

    I have no idea. I couldn't care less what he was doing so long as he was leaving me alone and therefor paid him no further attention. It's neither my role or place to stick my nose in his business any more than he in mine.

    I just love living in Henry, and where I'm at it's very quiet. In five years I have never even heard a siren from my house, not once. Maybe the crickets, birds and frogs drown them out. :righton:

    Also a big fan of Henry living. I've run into my share of LEOs here while OCing and never once had an issue. Just last night I was at IHOP around midnight and about 7 HEAT units came in while I was checking out. No one said a word about my firearm.

    I didn't read it as that at all. I read it as more of "the gun on my hip is no reason for a cop to stop/detain/talk to me at all, just like him being in a grocery store is not reason for me to wonder what he's doing there".

    Hate? Wow, the only word that is as overused and misused as the word racist! Where do you see hate in that statement? :roll:

    Maybe he's the only one professional enough to use that word?

    sorry hate may not have been the right word, more like Dislike for a police officer. i just dont get it when i see a police officer in a store i have a lot of respect for him and the risk he takes everyday to keep us safe, i must be old school I was taught to honor the military and law inforcement. I guess my folks were a bunch of nuts. :screwy:

    I didn't even see dislike. He just didn't want to be bothered for legally carrying his weapon. I like GOOD LEO's but that doesn't me I wanna be hassled by them for OCing.

    how the heck are cops to know who is a good guy and who is a thug, without id. give me a break you want bad guys goin around open carrying a gun without no one checking them out, get real this is not the wild west.

    That sounded rather anti-gun. :screwy: Nice reference to the "wild west" its right out of Alice's playbook. :roll:

    I don't want a license to be required to carry openly at all, just like it is in something like 28 other states. I don't think that the mere sight of a person peacefully open carrying a handgun in a holster requires any type of check. If the person is doing something else illegal, then run them through the system.

    I don't want "bad guys goin around open carrying a gun" but then again I don't want bad guys going around driving cars, or going around with power tools, or going around filling up those red gas cans at gas stations either, or going around buying chef's tools, etc.

    omg you have to be joking, to compare a gun with a power tool or car you have got to be kidding.

    When anyone uses the "wild west" phrase, that's the clue for me to walk away, because they clearly do not know what they are talking about.

    Even the "wildest" of the wide-open gold mining towns in California during the gold rush had about 1/20th the crime per capita that current-day "safe, gun-free" NY enjoys.
