    Well, I think it went very well! Although there were not that many people there, only 6. No problems, not really any startes at all, and since it was just a cafeteria, we had to get our own drinks. That meant each of us getting up 3 or 4 or 5 times to refill.

    I just noticed one young guy look and roll his eyes and shake his head as he walked by. Don't think anyone else noticed. I just smiled at him. Probably doesn't understand why we don't hide our firearms in shame like we should.

    All and all, a great time was had by all!

    I wanted to be there but I had a previous commitment to take the wife up to her favorite yarn shoppe in Silverdale , which was OK because I went pawnshop hopping while she was there and found my self a NIB S&W 1066 .

    From his mannerisms, dress, appearance, I'd say he was either a CCW'er who was upset that we don't hide our firearms in shame like the good armed sheeple we should be... Or was a LEO that hates to see the public armed but knows there is nothing he can do about it (yet).

    If I had to guess, it would be the second. I thought it was funny myself!

    Yeah, another gun owner who thinks OC is "showing off"

    I'm discovering that other GUN OWNERS are the OC'ers biggest enemy. Sad, but true.

    I'm beginning to believe that more and more. I've gotten more flack from other gun owners than most other people.
