    Dinner in Lexington KY

    Ok, Ill tell you what I did, you tell me what you would do!

    I had a hankering for BBQ so when I stopped into Lexington last week on my way back home from a 8 day Motorcycle trip, I put on my leather jacket and vest and 45 and headed over to the local bbq that has a 5 star rating.

    As I walked in, the owner (i assume) said

    OWNER: OH, you have a gun on your hip!

    ME: YES

    OWNER: WE have a child in here!

    ME: Are you asking me to leave?

    OWNER: Ah, well, Ah no!

    ME: I have no problem going some place else, I won't take off my gun.

    OWNER: do you think you can put that on safety? I am concerned about the safety of the child!

    ME: (I ACTUALLY thought at this point he asked me to leave, when he asked me to put it on safely, I though he asked me to safely put in on the bike, listening the the recording he did not asks me that)
    thats ok Ill just go someplace else

    OWNER: please stay, I just am concerned about the child, if you could just put it on safety Id feel much better

    ME: Sure, I can do that!

    was not exactly how I had hopped the visit would go, but at least I was able to keep the gun on

    I had the best BBQ I had in quite a while
    anyways that is how it went!


    side note: the guy taking my money was wide-eye amazed that it was legal to carry around a gun in the open, on my hip.
    WOW, I did not know you could do that. I explained he needed to find out the laws in Kentucky, on how and who may do so there!
    I had more people watching me!!! It was great!!!

    There must be some sort of rule violation that you mentioned a great BBQ place but didn't give its name.

    I go through Lexington usually a couple of times a year and am always looking for great places to eat on the road!

    That was a little surprising considering it was in Kentucky, maybe its a northern city thing.

    Question

    Two points:

    This story would be so much better with video of eyes popping out of the guys head.

    I know you, so to me you look like the nice guy you are. To them you may as well of been a Klingon & they must of been worried your disruptor would turn the place into ashes...just saying...

    "put it on safety"?
    If it's not out of the holster, it's safe.
    So tell him the safety is already on.

    Same with the sr9c. Only safety needed is between your ears.

    The manner in which the manager was carrying on about putting the gun on safety for the sake of the children he must thought that your gun was going to unholster itself without your knowledge while youre sitting there eating BBQ and float around the restaurant targeting and shooting just the children.

    Or perhaps he thought his BBQ was so good that it would turn you into some raving mad man while eating it and in your eating frenzy your gun would somehow come flying out of the holster? lol

    Jump to about 1:15. That's what could happen if the BBQ was that good
