Key bank.I carry concealed 99% of the time now but when I lived in Tualatin I open carried when it was hot. I never got grief from anyone including the Lake O Trader Joe's, Key Bank, my Dentist but got a weird look from the greeters at Cabela's.
I'm due for my annual physical & live in McMinnville but my Doc is across from Portland Adventist Hospital. I was setting up an appointment a few days ago & asked the Nurse if they'd changed their policy regarding concealed carry & she said 'No'. I wouldn't open carry b/c it might make other patients in the waiting room nervous. When I get weighed the Nurse always says, "We'll take off 2 lbs for the clothes & shoes" & my response is "Take off another 2 lbs for my pistol." Whenever I've had to drop trou or get an x-ray, etc they open a drawer in the exam room & lock my gun inside. They're super great people & since most of them are 7th Day Adventists their political leanings are towards the right.
True story - an FBI friend in Sacramento went to Costco & since it was Summer he didn't wear his jacket but had his badge on his belt. A snotty Costco employee stepped right in front of him & demanded to know if he was on duty because "we only allow on duty police to carry here." He just looked at her & said, "Considering that I'm on call 7/24 yeah - I'm on duty." I always conceal carry at Costco & if they ever want to know what the bulge under my shirt is the answer will be "My insulin pump." If they ask to see it depending on if it's a male or female I'll ask them to see - well you get the idea.
They never said anything or ever even blinked. Since it's a private company they set their own rules and I've never seen any Federal regulations stating I couldn't open carry. If they'd asked me not to I'd have honored the request.Key bank.
Really I don't think it is illegal to carry conciled.
But I don't know about open carry in a bank.
Omg this makes me want to go buy smaller shirts so I can print really bad. "I'm just happy to see you"PDX,
You're not obligated to answer a question of 'what's that bulge'.
I would be very po'd if asked such a personal/intrusive question. I'm and you're not compelled to answer.
Were I ever asked (and have never been asked in decades of carrying concealed) such a question, I might just say: Proof that I'm happy to see you, then smile and keep walking.
I've never been asked, but personally I like "my business" or "counterweight". I have been asked why I carry from people close to me who know I do. I always say it helps me keep my balance.Naw, aint gonna be answering with a plausible lie.
