my first experience carrying
this weekend i went to Atlanta with wife and daughter to visit mother in law.
today i was walking the mother in laws boxer and decided to take him for a stroll around the apartment complex since it doesn't get out much.
well, on my way back to apartment i notice a guy standing in street where the cars park along the buildings about 40 feet in front of my path.
my gut feeling said something was off about him so i decide to cross the street and walk at an angle continuing straight but also away from him.
as i get closer the dude starts walking in a path that will intersect mine, and i also notice hes fidgeting around in his jacket.
i keep scanning around and watching him and he eventually asks me what kind of dog I'm walking - and i tell him and then he asks if its friendly.
i say no not really even though the dog is a big puss.
at this point I'm pretty sure I'm being interviewed.
as he starts to close i change direction again to force him to walk away from me.
at one point he produces a pack of cigarettes out of his jacket.
that scared me cause at that point if it had been a gun i would have been severely behind the curve.
although i was aware of what was going on id don't think i handled it as well as i could have.
i think i let him get too close and i don't think i watched him as intently as i should have because part of me says - hey don't stare at people cause its rude.
what do you all think?

And often...anyone can be caught off guard. Nothing happened, and you a bit wiser for the experience. It is not that hard to stop an 'interview, but sometime it can make one feel a little 'rude?'...isn't that what the BG are counting on?
Stay very alert...
