This wasn't a jail or prison, it was an elementary school. LEO's don't disarm when they walk into a school.

I approach a gun-related activity with an eye to promoting a positive impression of gun owners.

OK maybe one comment.
There is a strong contingent of people working to remove prohibited locations for LTC holders. These efforts, rely not only on LTC holders, being law abiding, but understanding that in your face, just because I can, attitudes, undermine those efforts. What is so difficult about not only disarming, but removing the holster?

This thread has a distinctive whiff of a "They Who Shall Not be Named" flavor, with some open-carry overtones.

Right. My wires got crossed. Elementary school is different, from public perception point of view the most. Covering up would be prudential exercise of 2A/carry. Don't think it should be a requirement per se, but, it would make LTC'er project a more positive disposition, especially in the eyes of someone who is already nervous nelly about guns.


I'll go to the back of the class now, sit down, and take notes.

In my opinion, the value of which can be determined by you, this is an example of just because it's legal doesn't mean it is right or wise.

I think it was the "paton leather shoes" part that gave it away.

Yes, this was the first time at the school.

I have to take my belt most of the way off to remove the holster. I always just unholster since it's easier, faster and just adds to muscle memory. It's never occurred to me that someone would be offended.

I don't think it was me he was referring to as a troll. I don't know what shall not name group you're referring to, but I don't belong to any gun organizations. I had to open and switch to this user name after my other got locked for unknown reasons. Previously, I was "So Confused" here.

I'd have just pulled my phone out of my pocket, stuck it in the holster, smiled, and replied that I saw no need to remove my spirited phone carrier.

Then again, probably a good thing I don't participate in open carry unless I'm at the range with my mouth.
