I open carry fairly often around home, I live in a rural area and have a small farm so it's convenient when I'm working outside and that always turns into errands here and there so I'm at the grocery or hardware store, etc with a gun on my belt on a regular basis. Yesterday we went to the big city (Ellsworth, ME pop 8000+/-) to get hay at the feed store, some stuff at Tractor Supply and make a WalMart run. I was open carrying the Alchemy 'Hand of Doom' Springfield in a Safariland ALS holster. So, I'm walking around WalMart, checking ammo stock and such and a young guy walks past me and says, "Nice .45, Kimber?". I said, "Thanks, not a Kimber". And he replies, "Yeah, they're too expensive to carry, huh?". I opened my mouth to explain what I was carrying then realized how long it would take and how futile it would be and just said, "Yeah, that's it.... Take it easy." I thought it the exchange was kind of funny.
