Iâ€™ve only rarely open carried, so this was unusual for me. I walked the entire store with only one person, one of the employees, openly looking me over. Everyone else just walked on by me. Maybe itâ€™s just a mental model that people have; a guy shopping for toilet paper and garbage bags just doesnâ€™t come across as very scary. Iâ€™ve been in this store a lot, and talked to these people on a friendly basis. I picked a checkout line with a guy Iâ€™ve talked to in the past ringing up the groceries. No problem. On my way out another young man that Iâ€™ve been friendly with was standing next to the manager (a female). I nodded, said hi, they said hi back, and I left. A total non-event, as it should be. But nonetheless a confidence booster for a guy who doesn't normally OC.
