A couple weeks ago I was in the local convenience store when a lady wlaked up behind me and saw my gun holstered on my hip. She said, "Howdie... you expecting trouble?"
Me, "No, why?"
Her, "Well, you 're wearin' a gun."
Me, "Oh, that. No I'm not expecting any trouble. But then, I don't reckon anyone was expecting trouble at VT, Columbine, or Ft Hood either, but it came a callin."
Her (raising her eyebrows), "Ya gotta goodpoint. Guess none of us knows when stuff like that can happen."
Me, "Or where."
Her, "So, you're prepared, just in case?"
Me, "Yes Maam, sort of like an insurance policy. Might never need it, but it's good to have, if trouble does show up."
She smiled and then started telling me about the firearms her husband had at home. If we have any anti-gunners in my neck of the woods, their all hiding.
