    Good encounter at the Kitsap Transfer Station

    While at the "dump" and tossing out the recyclables, a very young boy there with his family saw my XD and in a very loud and distinct voice said "Hey, you have a gun". LOL With a big grin, I replied "Yep, I sure do." Then his dad said "That's so he can protect himself" to which I added, "and my family." Then he and I almost simultaneously said "and anyone else around me" to which he added "he would protect us if someone wanted to do bad things to us."

    Made me smile.

    Thanks for sharing this; we all apprecitate hearing about the positive encounters. I am happy to hear that at least some folks do "get it!"

    Your encounter plays out in my minds eye like one of those 1980's afterschool public announcement commercials. All you needed was to end it with a "Only you can prevent forest fires!" quotes or something to make it even more perfect. LOL, Too bad this wasn't a regular experience.
