Odd experience

I carry my Ruger LC9 in an IWB holster with my shirt tucked behind. I can't carry at work so this works out well for holstering up after work, lunch hour, etc.

A couple of days ago I went to lunch with a friend at the City Buffet Chinese rest on Fairview and Milwaukee in Boise. I took off my jacket as we were seated and proceeded to the buffet. I made several trips to the trough as I tend to over eat at buffets. As we were getting up from the table to leave I stretched my arms out to put on my jacket and the waitress (Chinese, I think) says "you have gun!" I said, yes. She then puts her right hand index finger to her head and makes like she is shooting herself in the temple. I was dumbfounded by this and just gave her a strange look as we left to pay the cashier.

I don't know what to think of this act. I don't go there very often, once or twice a year, so I am sure they won't remember me next time.. Good food but I just tend to stay away from buffets.
