Went to Win-Co tonight with my daughter to grab a few things for dinner tonight.
This old boy comes up and asks me if that is a firearm. I tell him that it is, and smile. Then he asks me, "Whyare you carrying it like that?"
Well, I guess wasn't in to much of a mood tonight, so my response was, "Why should I hide it? Washington is an open carry state."
His reply was to inform me that it was illegal, that I was brandishing, and it was intimidating, therefore it was against the law.
I of course told him that as long as it was holstered it wasn't brandishing, andapologized ifhe felt intimidated.
It appeared to me that he wasn't going to hear a word I had to say and as he walked away, he told me that he had already called the cops.
(Who of course never showed up.)
So I finished my shopping, andheaded for home, all pissed off, for not having my wits about me for not being prepared to verbally tie this asshat into a knot.
Iguess you can't win em all.
