Open carry arrives with a whimper in Oklahoma
Open carry advocates celebrated loosened gun restrictions with a quiet demonstration at an Oklahoma City diner, and police reported nothing out of the ordinary a day after open carry arrives.

Open carry arrived in Oklahoma without a hitch.
Spokesmen with police departments in Oklahoma City, Norman and Edmond said their dispatchers did not receive a single call from citizens concerned about firearms on Thursday, the first day for the law allowing people with a state-issued permit to openly carry certain handguns in public.
It feels like freedom to us; it feels very liberating, said Bryan Hull, who runs a towing service in downtown Oklahoma City and co-founded the Oklahoma Open Carry Association.
Hull and about two dozen other men and women celebrated the arrival of loosened gun restrictions by bringing their holstered weapons to breakfast shortly after midnight at Beverly's Pancake House on Northwest Expressway.

Very kewl! I wish we had OC in Florida. I’d love to exchange my IWB holsters for paddle holsters.
Congrats, to my northern neighbors. Just wish Texas would get their butt in gear and pass this too.
Not all it’s cracked up to be.
I’ve got to get my evening dress holster, sports holster, casual holster, and shoulder holster for those intimate occasions.
My life and wardrobe is a lot simpler than yours. A good paddle holster (for each gun) will do the job for me. Actually, I’m pretty sure that I own more holsters than pairs of pants right now!
What about the beach?
My husband is always packing, pretty much no matter what, and if you know Dwight Shrute’s hidden arsenal, well, that’s pretty much my house. Anyhoo...He went to visit our daughter last night and as he walked out the door, he decided he needed to wear his shoulder police-type holster just for her because she would expect it of him. It didn’t matter that he was wearing a T-shirt and old shorts. He was openly packing and it was awesomesauce.
My wife packs a pair of 45’s
***What about the beach?****
I’ll never forget the girl in a lime green bikini laying on a rock out at Keystone lake back in 1970!
I still think of her and wished I could have made conversation. She was a doll!
