    From the least expected places.....

    This morning, as I was entering the grocery store, I encountered a very well dressed, obviously "well to do" older lady (and I intentionally use the term "lady") as she was exiting. Normally, she would fall directly into the category I would stereorypically expect to turn up their nose and sniff at someone such as myself brazenly going about with such a crude display of weaponry fastened to my thigh. (I wear a 1911 in a drop leg).

    So you can imagine my surprise when she looked me dead in my eye upon passing and said,

    "Now there's something I'd like to see more of."

    Good things come from the strangest places.

    Did she look down at your gun, or was she referring to your rugged looks?
    Sounds like a great encounter either way.
