i'll add my 2 cents on a couple posts i've seen. i for one don't mind OC'ing because the places that i do are either out in the woods, or when i come into large chain grocery stores, or walmarts or something where there's no threat of immediately being seen if something is going down. any kind of closer type quarters environments and i'll always CC.
next regarding carrying any weapon platform in indiana, i've open carried my backpacking rifle (swing under collapsible stock) on my back through downtown with a 30rd mag loaded, a cop stopped me and asked if i had a round in the chamber, i said no and i showed him that i didn't and he just said "well then have a nice day". i have no idea if having a round chambered makes a legal difference or not, but i'm glad i didn't.
jon, did they really make OC illegal in cali? when i lived there i got a CC permit out of orange county because of my job so i never had to worry about the OC stuff.
