Well here I am going to an inlaws house to eat steak and drink whiskey. As such I am not carrying. I stop by the quick stop in my town of about 5k people. There is a truck with its radio extremely loud and disturbing the peace parked in front. A man who is pumping gas and that I happen to know asks the punk to turn down his radio as he is on the phone. The punk begrudingly does so but walks into the store like he is a bad [Edited]. I walk in right behind him and get my coke and I am behind him in line. Punk says to the cashier, "That guy out side asked me to turn down my radio, can you believe that?" (I think to my self yes you dumba$$) Then he says, "I'll bet he wouldn't have asked if he knew about the .40 under my shirt." (By the way this punk is like 30 something and I am only 26) The cashier and a juvenille laughed about the comment in agreement. At this point I go from 0 to pissed off in 3 seconds. I almost blurt out "Some would construe that as a threat" or "Do you have a permit for that .40?" but I am not carrying and I don't feel like seeing that .40 so I bite my tongue and remain the "grey man" until this fool leaves the store. As soon as the door closes I say to the cashier, "That was one stupid [Edited] to threaten someone like that." The cashier looks at me like an idiot and says nothing. Meanwhile this punk pulls around to the stop sign right by the place and stops for a good 15 seconds blaring his radio trying to piss of the guy on his cell phone (He is oblivious). This gives me a chance to get behind him and get his tag #. I call local PD and tell what happened and give a description of the truck and tag #. Frankly I am not expecting much from my Johnny one bullet police force but I wish that I had said nothing to this airhead cashier.
I suppose I should carry always even in a town I am comfortable in and expect no trouble. Should I have just went on without a word and not called the law or what? My freakish concern is that if this bozo is caught that he will piece it together who called him in and as we were in my wife's car, my family could be in danger. I have never thought of the reprocussions of doing the right thing before.
Some constructive criticism please.
