I'd be very concerned if she was carrying sloppily. There's no need to either scratch up a gun unnecessarily or forget where you dropped it because you were not paying attention.Not sure if she will be, open, conceal or sloppy carrying today and dont really care. I just feel better knowing she is carrying.
Carrying while shopping is a good reason to use a retention holster - your attention is diverted away from both the handgun and what is generally taking place areound you.
Black Frday shopping may be a good reason/excuse to OC - yes I'm playing to te antis' hysteria at the mere sight of a gun. But at least it might save a fight over that last whatevertheheckitis that she and some other shopper both seem to think they just must have or civilization as they know it will end.
I live several miles from the nearest shopping outlet. Today, especially, I am grateful for that fact. I have watched the TV news and seen the pictures of the crowds at the malls and on the highways. I am busy practicing my bug-in skills today. I am going to take the opoportunity to see how many different ways leftover turkey and stuffing can be prepared without resorting to the use of bacon.
