    My wife wanted to go out to dinner tonight because neither one of us wanted to cook. We headed to out local Buzz-Inn Steak house in Smokey Point

    I was open carrying my Taurus PT111 in my Don Hume Double-Nine thumb break holster. Because of where we were seated, I was pretty exposed. Everyone coming into the dining room had no choice but to see me sitting there with my gun at my side.

    As we were eating our meal, I noticed a guy goup to the waitress at the counter. He tried to be quiet, but he wasn't wasn't quiet enough because it was easy to overhear the conversation:

    Customer: Did you see that guy over there with the GUN?!

    Waitress: Yes. kinda scary huh?

    Customer: Yea, arn't you gonna call the cops or something?

    Waitress: Why? Carrying a gun isn't illegal.

    Customer: But it's a GUN! Sure it is!

    Waitress: Nope.

    At that point the guy went back to his seat. I could FEEL his eyes just watching me the rest of our visit.

    Well... at least the waitress knows the law!

    You should've walked over, extended your hand, introduced yourself, and gave him a copy of the washington open carry brochure

    I hope you didn't forget to leave her a tip. THAT was excellent service.

    You should have a card printed that you can drop on his table as you leave:

    I remember seeing you on the "Costco Policy" post mentioning this. That sucks! I'll try to wean my wife off Costco.
