    Smile OC friendly at Kowalskis

    this evening I was shopping at Kowalskis on Grand Avenue in St paul, I was approached by a "gentleman" and asked if I was a LEO, I replied I was not but had a permit to carry....he then informed me i was a "F***ing idiot", and went to speak to the Store manager.
    I have been shopping at this particular store for nearly a decade, and OC as a matter of habit...while in the checkout I overheard this fellow in a rather heated discussion with the Store Mgr. who has informed him that I have been coming to the store for years and was not only a permit holder, but retired military as well.

    Feleing pretty good about the entire situation, I fired off an e-mail to the store manager thanking him and his staff for their professionalism, and common sense in dealing with the matter

    Doc - congrats on handling that situation with a good bit of maturity. Given that part of St. Paul, I'm a little surprised you got this far without any more anti-gun hassles.

    I always found Kowalkski's to be a great place to shop when I lived there, too bad they haven't opened any stores out East!
