I get a bit upset when people throw their arms up in the air, and say Don't shoot, or something else stupid.
What is really the concern here is the preception that other people may get.
Your out side, your looking into the store and you see the clerk throw their arm up into the air like they are getting robbed. You call the cops, and all the #$%^ hits the fan.
Get my point.
I usually try to ask them in a calm manner not to do that anymore. and give them the example I just used. Most understand and say they are sorry.
But back to funny encounters.. I had one this weekend also.
I was getting out of my truck at Taco Bell, going to get dinner.
I always adjust my belt/trousers when I get out, so I was doing that when this lady was going to her car, which was right next to mine. She saw my gun and said.. "That gun is disgusting.
I chirped back rather quickly... "That's not digusting, lady.. Disgusting will be if I don't finish fixing my trousers and belt, and they drop... Now that will be disgusting.
She gave me one of those... Well I never looks , jumped in her car and left.
