    I was in the Roseville Home Depot this morning buying some paint for a friend with my Baby Eagle 9 in a Fobus on my hip. I was with my 15 month old son who seems to draw all of the attention anyway.

    I was at the paint counter and had struck up a conversation with the two guys and young teenage girl beside me. I heard her ask her dad a few times "Is that a real gun" in hushed whispers, and each time her dad would whisper back "Ask Him!".

    I was hoping that they would just ask so I could have a chance to share about OC, but they never did while I was standing there.

    Well, my paint was finally ready, and I was fighting the little one as he was starting to get a little antsy. I started to walk away, and was going over in my head the other stuff I needed to get when I heard the girl blurt out, "Is that A real Gun?"

    I was distracted and just kind of told her over my shoulder, "Uh, Yeah, Yes it is." and just kept going.

    I thought about it as got into the car and kicked myself. I had an opportunity, and I blew it. It has been bothering me all day and I thought that maybe if I just let it out, I will be able to get over it.

    Hey you live and learn I have made it a point to always carry info pamphlets with me when I am OCing...

    You did have the little one to contend with so between that and SA you had plenty of reason to be short. More than I would have for sure

    Anyway you will know what to do next time!!
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    That's a pretty small thing to get worked up over.

    If they're that curious, they're bound to do research, and probably end up on this very forum. If they don't really give a rats ass, nothing was lost anyway, because they don't care.

    When I first saw the title, I figured you had been hassled by the police and ran your mouth. All things considered, you're doing very well.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Ahhh, you did fine.

    The little girl is probably telling all her friends about it right now...
