    Smile Had to laugh.....

    Went to a local AT&T store yesterday to get Ins on my phone etc. Went through the whole process with the salesman Blah, Blah etc. Had my XDM-40 cal in a Blackhawk Serpa holster in plain sight. He finally noticed after 5 min and says oh my, why you need that. Left himself wide open...I said had you rather have a cell phone or my pistol in your hand if a bad guy walked in shooting...He just nodded and smiled...New store 12 noon very well lit up...Another example of people totally unaware of their surrounding...Think I left him stumped..Although I did explain that it was perfectly legal, and told him to have a nice day...Smiling all the way out the door......

    I went into Western Carolina Plumbing between 1st and 2nd ave a while back. The guy says, "You're not going to shoot me are you?" I told him no, "It's not for you." Kind of chuckled over that one.

    Had a gal at Granite Falls WM nearly stumble over herself when she noticed. She was half way through scanning and in the middle of a conversation with me. You would have though a snake crawled out of the register.

    Spooked the lady working at a little tobacco shop on Hwy 16 pretty good. Ended up talking to her for about 15 minutes. Told her where to rent guns to shoot, where a few gun stores where, and where to take her CCH class.

    You get some interesting reactions, that's for sure.

    "Why do you need that?!?!"

    well it's like a condom..... I'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it...

    Had a guy ask me that one day.
    In response, I asked if he were going to attack me.
    He looked a little startled & said "no".
    So I said, "Then why would I need to shoot you?"
    We both smiled, & had a short conversation.

    Good visual!

    I was reading a newspaper in a waiting room once when a (very small) spider dropped out.
    I dropped the paper on the floor. Didn't scream, though.
    (Yes, I know, most of them are harmless & all are more scared of me. I still don't like spiders.)
    The guy at the counter looked over & asked, "spider?"

    Beats the time one was hiding behind a sunshade in a car. (I was the passenger.)
    We were on the freeway, I flipped it down, then tried to crawl out the (locked) door (with my seatbelt on) as it dropped into my lap.
    (See above, about spiders being harmless & scared.)

    Cobras are more scared of me than I am of them, I think...but would still prefer not to find one coiled up in my car.
