    That was strange....

    On of my too many hobbies is I belong to a Pyro guild, and we had a club shoot 125 miles from home...

    So it is after midnight, I stop by a mini mart gas station to top of the tank before I get back to the higher priced fuel in my area. I am tired and there is a fairly large group (8-10) of kids (16-20) hanging out, making lots of noise, but not being any kind of apparent problem...

    I decide to make it easy for me, older guy 6'4" I switch from CC to OC while I fuel up...
    As I get out of my PU, dual mag pouch, HK in the pancake I jump out and leave my jacket in the PU to help cool off and wake up in the evening air...

    And all the kids go quiet and split post haste....

    kind of suspicious, maybe they thought I was a cop....

    I have had similar happen when I walk into a store late at night OC good stuff!
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    I've had the same happen to me when there have been young people present... one time a group purchasing beer just stood there as I bought a six-pack and then looked at each other and took off. Another time I was at a counter at a local party store when a group of teens walked in, looked at me, and turned right around and walked away quietly. Now, they COULD have been there for legal and legitimate purchases...

    BTW: "Party Store" is a "liquor store" for you non-Michiganders who may be reading this.

    Giving up our liberties for safety is the one sure way to let the violent among us win.

    "Though defensive violence will always be a 'sad necessity' in the eyes of men of principle, it would be still more unfortunate if wrongdoers should dominate just men." -Saint Augustine

    When we were in S. Carolina, some called it a pop shop. Funny thing is, they called pop, "soda", even though soda is something else, and then they would argue that it wasnt pop. It's pop.

    What about MI law that prohibits the carrying of a gun in a place licensed by the state to sell booze, could that have been an issue had there been an altercation or is there something I am missing here....

    DrTodd, is exempted, as he has a CPL, as most (at least many) of us do. If you have a CPL, you can OC @ places that have a LL.
