    Went in with the wife for some new house plants (let's not not go there, trust me on ths one ). While being helped by an employee he notices the 1911 on my hip and asks about the handgrips (pachmayr rosewood w/ finger grips). He then ask if I am a LEO or just a citizen who wants to protect himself? I give him my answer and we started a discussion. I told him it was legal in WA to carry openly and I said even your corporate heads agree with it and presented him with a copy of Lowes Corporate policy & Home Depot's policy on weapons. He had no idea & was thrilled. I told him about OCDO and invited him to the site. I just wish I had remembered to bring some WGR pamphlets with me. Later on I saw him in another part of the store talking with another employee and introduced me to her. I don't think she was much thrilled about the policy as she kept staring at my hip.:what:

    I was just in lowes tonight getting some redwood for a deck my girlfriend and i are building. The cashier didn't seem like the sharpest tool in the shed. BTW gunr, if you read my reply to your post on the thread I started..I'm sorry for my "cockish" attitude. Anyhow, great overall experience.

    Did she say, "Is that like, a real gun or something?" Then ran to the bathroom and washed herself for 2 hours repeating the biblical law of the plague, "He so whomever touches this man, he is unclean. He who sittith upon where he sat... UNCLEAN!" *mumblemumble* *scrubscrub*

    That made me laugh quite loudly. LOL definitely applies.

    That kind of situation begs just one response to the poor lady.

    "Mam, with all due respect, criminals don't open carry, and I would use it in your defense just as sure as I would my own."
