    WM Greeter

    Sunday afternoon, my wife and I were at the Wal-Mart portrait studio in West Plains. After we were done with the photos, I stepped over to grab a cart. The studio is located right beside the front door, through which I had entered. As I got a cart, the greeter says "Welcome to Wal-Mart". I told him thanks and then he said something about my weapon. I asked him what he said and walked over to him. He asked "Is your gun unloaded?" I replied "No", He then asked "Are you law enforcement" I didn't answer but said "What difference would that make" Him "Well, I'm aware of people...and what if your gun gets bumped" I informed him that it would be no problem and left. I was awaiting the "No guns permited" lecture but it never came. The greeter seemed like a very nice and polite man and I hope that he will do a little research.

    You must have been carrying a Glock because it is common knowledge that the ceramic Glocks can pass through airport security undetected and almost always go off when slightly bumped.

    i would lay odds he was carrying a 1911. PT frowns at Glocks.

    Sheesh where do they find these people...
    "I'm aware of people, what if your gun gets bumped?" Seriously? Ok, mister smarty-pants, what if the same happens to a LEO?

    Just goes to show that when we think we've heard all of the ignorance related to carry that something else just happens to be brought up.

    If I was a betting person I would bet that Thad was carrying a 1911. I have never seen him with anything else. It was a wonder that the greeter didn't notice that it was cocked and locked. That would have caused a heart attack right then and there.
