Thread: An Open Carry Story
My lovely bride and I were in Wal Mart tonight getting a few necessaries. There was a family behind me in the check-out line and the very delightful lady noticed my pistol and asked if I was a sheriff.
The Devil rose up and I replied, "Why, no! My parents were married over a year before I was born!"
She and her husband cracked up. We then had a very nice little conversation about how OC is legal and what particular caliber/brand I was carrying. She said her husband is afraid of guns. I told her that he needs to find someone who is knowledgeable and will take him to a range. He will soon see that they are nothing but a tool, just like a hammer or saw. She pretty much agreed, but I don't think he was convinced.
Nice folks, though, and had the cutest little girl I've seen since my granddaughters.
Another SFC retired here. Carried a 45 and fired Expert my entire career- in the open in several countries -and was very surprised after returning to Sweet Home Alabama that the police here would rather you get a CW and hide the fact that you are carrying. Seems to me that they would want to know who has a weapon on them. Very strange indeed!
My question is, have you ever been told by a business (restaurant, store, etc.) that you are not allowed to bring a gun into their establishment.
Don't believe any facts that I say! This is the internet and it is filled with lies and untruth. I invite you to look up for yourself the basic facts that my arguments might be based upon. This way we can have a discussion where logic and hints on where to find information are what is brought to the forum and people look up and verify facts for themselves.
Seems to be a few of us SFCs around.
Great story sarge. Going to try and remember that line you came up with.
