State Fair carry

#1

Post by RoyBoy » Fri Oct 05, 2018 1:23 pm

Went to the state fair on opening day. I knew from the website that concealed carry was allowed. When I got to the metal detectors I informed
the lady checking us that I would set off the metal detector due to concealed carry. She simply told me to walk around the detector and show
the nearest policeman my LTC. I walked over to a policeman sitting on a raised platform and showed him my LTC. He took a short glance at it
and told me to have a nice day and enjoy the fair. So all in all a good interaction. But the truth is, I could have just walked on in and not said
anything. The policeman was looking at 10 plus lines of people. Not a very secure setup for them. But they did keep me from carrying my
pocket knife in! "rlol"

The officer never said anything about my pocket knives...lol

ADD: The officer did inform me that open carry was prohibited...

yep. Dumb and dumber were staffing the metal detector. I was told I could carry in my HG but not my pocket folder.

So, the answer is to carry your concealed knife so close to your handgun that D&D can't tell?

I had the same thing happen at Dallas City Hall. I know the state law makes them have to let me in with a pistol. However I would expect someone to go, well we let him in with a G17 and 2 spare mags, maybe his 2" old timer is okay. But no, had to walk all the way back out to the truck to put my super dangerous pocket knife up.

The answer appears to be that honesty is simply NOT the best policy. :banghead:

I still prefer the sash and tiara. They keep me from getting shot by the responding police officers.

I'm not a good candidate for fair attendance this year, but here's an alternate approach. I carry my .380 Sig in my right hand pocket, right next to my new titanium hip. What would be the odds that they let me in if they see my scar? Hip is a bit larger than the Sig. Not too serious here. Still show the officer the LTC.

The State Fair no longer interests me and after my battle with them and the city over CC several years ago I no longer care to fight that again with OC.
