    Well, I had my first encounter (by proxy) today!

    Day started off by going to the little strip mall in Bridle Trails. Wife had to have her nails filled and a pedicure. We got there early, so we walked over to Starbucks and sat for about 20 minutes drinking before we decided to go to the Subway there to grab a bite to eat. No problems again in Starbucks at all.

    We got to Subway (we have eaten there several times, but had been a while since the last time) and I sat down to get a table while my wife got our sandwiches. About 20 minutes later, a "family" came in on bikes. Father, Mother, Son. They ordered, grabbed the stuff and went outside to get back on their bikes.

    My wife noticed outside that the boy was pointing at me and saying something to the Mother. A minute or so later, the woman comes back into the Subway and whispers something to the guy there. He says, loud enough for us to hear him, "He probably has a permt for it". My wife immediatly said back "Yes, he does."

    After the lady left, the guy caught my eye, shook his head and said "Sorry about that." I replied to him "Not a problem, thank you for the way you handled it!".

    When we left about 10 minutes later, I thanked him and told him to have a great day. He thanked us again and said to come back soon.

    It was a great experience and the guy (I think he's the manager there) was awesome, really put the woman in her place. So, if any of you are in the area and hungry, I'd recommend that place!

    After that, we went to Fry's so I could get some electronic components and spent about an hour and a half there. No issues at all. I know the "greeter" saw the firearm because he specifically looked at my right side. But dismissed it just as quickly.

    Did have one guy while my wife was looking at a refridgerator really check me out. Both sides. I carry a spare mag, a tactical flashlight and a pouch of OC on my right hip.

    So, all in all it was another great day! And my first "encouter" was handled by the guy at the subway shop, I didn't even have to get involved.

    Nice. Good job on the manager and my professional opinion is that the woman is a retard.

    Gregma, you're not a white haired gentleman and full beard? I was at the Ace around 11ish, I think I may have seen the bicycle family as I was leaving. There was a white haired gentleman coming out of subway. One of these days we're going to run into each other.

    Self important bitch gets the "so-what?" from the manager after squeeling.

    Hey gregma, just to make sure, this is the right Subway?:

    12523 N.E. 144th St.
    Kirkland, WA

    If so, I'll make sure to stop by there next time I pass through Kirkland and I'm hungry so that I can commend them for acting so well and, thus, show them that supporting 2A rights can be profitable!

    Kirkland WA 98033

    In Bridal Trails.

    That's "Fresh Start Subs", but it is near a Starbucks. He originally said Subway in the post, but maybe he was mistaken... that's why I asked for clarification, since I want to get the right place.

    No full beard. And yes, it was about 11:30 or so when we left. I do have greying hair, but not white. And clean shaven (well, haven't shaved in about 2 days, so I do have a 10pm shadow

    We went right from the Subway to the Center Nails shop and went inside there.

    That's the address all right. And it's a Subway Shop. Go to www.subway.com and put in 98033 in the store lookup. Maybe it used to be called Fresh Start Subs? But I know since we've been going to the Gym there about 2 years it's been Subway.

    Okay, I believe ya. I got my info from here (the first hit on Google for the address): http://www.explorekirkland.com/place...fm?content=376

    But I looked at a few more sites and it looks like it's a Subway, as mentioned.

    It's been a subway since my wife was pregnant with our son 13 years ago. She would stop there on her way home from work and get a seafood sandwich.

    I have the belly for it, but alas, not the beard
