Well, I completed my Pistol Discipline today... The Training Counselor was nice enough to hold the applications for those of us who took all of his classes to submit them at once so we didn't get charged with multiple processing fees.
However, I am now a Certified Range Safety Officer an an NRA Instructor with the credentials to teach pistol. And with that, I'll shortly be open for business! I'm offering the NRA F.I.R.S.T. Steps program and the NRA Basic Pistol Course.
Once you take the Basic Pistol Course, you'll be able to take the Delaware CCDW course and the Florida License course. If you're in the New Castle area and you're looking to take either of these, please contact me -- I'll give a good discount to DELOC members on the condition that you recommend me to someone you know who might be interested.
So, to the actual open carry part. After I completed my course today, I went home and picked up my little girl. I OC'd out to Lonestar (Khaki shorts, Red Polo). They had
to have noticed, because me and Lily were waited on HAND AND FOOT. I can't count the number of times I had my waiter and two different managers stop by asking me if my service was good, if my food was alright or if I needed anything.
I sat in a table in the middle -- I kind of wish I'd asked for a booth, but the people around me certainly took notice as well. An elderly lady and her daughter in the booth next to us stepped up to the table, but only wound up remarking at how nice my daughter was behaving. In fact, outside of the occasional glances, the only things the few patrons had said were about her. Heh!
After that, I hit the Citgo on 13 to fill up for heading down to DSF's tomorrow then I hit the Walmart to pick up 200 rounds of ammo. I'm considering this a training trip so I can expense it, bwah! No looks at all at Walmart, either...
A good day!
