    a pleasant encounter at starbucks

    I was OC'ing today at starbucks in west bend, and a woman and her daughter walked in behind me (daughter was maybe 4 or 5?). Much to my pleasant surprise she made the comment to her daughter "that looks just like mommy's", referring to my G19. I struck up a conversation and it was nice to meet a fellow gun owner! She mentioned they had just gotten back from bear hunting, and she doesn't go out in the woods without at least her glock and a few clips. I don't blame her, as my grandmother lives up there and they have bears and mountain lions all over these days. I talked to her a bit about open carry and directed her here so hopefully she gets the chance to stop in and say hi. She asked if people said anything or she imagined people would freak out, and I told her that she's maybe the 2nd person to ever say anything to me, and that people really don't say or do anything. Would be nice to add another OC'er to our ranks here in west bend!

    (I think MKEgal has those vids of a whole lot of people reacting no way whatsoever to her open carry)

    Good that you had a pleasant experiance but, did you ask her the important question....

    Firearm Carrier, Bear Hunter, etc., ... My God man.... Did you ask her if she was single....

    Good story. To my knowledge, no crime has ever been prevented before it occurred, by a concealed gun. Just saying, OC has it's advantages

    +1! Always ask that question. Or ask if she has a sister or friend who is single and as cool with firearms as she is. Not, of course asking for myself, but some guys on here need some lovin'!
    One loves to possess arms, though they hope never to have occasion for them. Thomas Jefferson to George Washington, 1796.
