    Went to the vet for our puppy's check-up. (6 mo old now and already over 50 lbs.) After taking the pup home, we went to the local buffet-style restaurant "Journey" (not my favorite place, but my wife likes the sushi bar).

    Finally, we went to one of my wife's Japanese friends' apartments to visit for a bit.

    At none of the locations did people run screaming and shouting. Nor were police or the National Guard called out. An ordinary day carrying out our errands and visits. I just happened to be wearing a gun openly strapped to my hip.

    The last one in the set was interesting though. We were there for about an hour. My wife's friend was showing off a picture album while the kids were playing and her husband was napping. Then the husband got up. We chatted a bit longer then we had to leave.

    On the way out the door the husband asked me what I was carrying. The wife, however looked very startled and said that she hadn't even noticed.

    I walked into her house wearing jeans and a tucked-in T-shirt, with a 1911 in a cheap "Gunmate" nylon belt holster at the 3:00 position, sat on her couch and chatted for an hour and she never even noticed that I was openly armed with a not-small gun. Mind you, she did notice my hair (kind of "entry level Goth"--black with a purple streak), but not the gun.

    Most people really are oblivious.

    I would have called the police and the guard for the purple streak!
