    Appropriate attire to OC

It is my personal experience that choise of appearance has ZERO to do with if someone will be treated poorly while OCing....One might be treated better if clean shaven...

    Do you open carry "loaded"?

    Inspired by a statement in a recent post and not finding a poll about carrying loaded I thought I would strike up the "loaded" verses "unloaded" OC debate. Edit: Since this has been moved I guess I need to add... This is assuming it is legal to carry with a round chambered.

    imported post So, does anyone have or know the process for obtaining an "unlimited license" pistol licence in Lee County? Or anywhere else for that matter.
