    OC Report - Snohomish Home Depot confrontation

    As I walked into the store yesterday morning to pick up some lumber for target stands for the North Fork shoot, I was confronted by an employee and had the following discussion:

    Her: Good morning!
    Me: Good morning
    Her: COOL! What kind of gun is that?
    Me: Glock 21
    Her: Nice, I have a .38. it's a Ruger my Dad bought me.
    Me: Ruger makes good guns, I have one of their revolvers.

    While I have yet to have a negative reaction to OC, this was by far the most POSITIVE one I have had. Most folks don't even seem to notice.

    Young girl that I wouldn't even have guessed to be 21, looks like her Dad raised her right.

    Is "Testicle" shooting a prerequisite to OC'ing ?

    Your thinking of Lowes, if I remember correctly. So, were you carrying your sidearm poncho style?

    A gentlemen walked up to me yesterday at Starbucks while I was ordering coffee, I thought, great, here we go, but he asked me about my tattoo's. Kinda caught me off guard.

    Stopped at MckeeDees yesterday, got my wife a frappe and my kid a McFlurry, stop at the trash can to throw some stuff away and the manager was outside breaking down boxes and saw my nine and asked if it was a 40? Told him no it is a 9mm. He said he carries a 40.

    I don't have the (spare) balls to mexican carry.

    Besides, it was Home Depot, not Lowe's.

    And it was Snohomish, not Lynnhood.

    I have a personal philosophy against self-inflicted ball shooting regardless of location. This thread is making want a bullet proof cup...

    Not necessarily geographically or business specific, but I would suggest that, as in many things, it is statistically more likely to occur based on certain factors.

    Example -You are likely to see more Mexican's in Mexico than in Arizona...er wait, bad example.

    OK, how about this - You are likely to see more men in the men's room than in the ladies room. Better?
