    I suppose bringing in and wearing my NRA apparel would be a bad idea, huh?

    Kidding aside; at least for now, things have settled down. But it is what it is... I work in a very ANTI environment, so it's up to me to carry myself in a very quiet, professional manner and avoid even the slightest "hint" of gun talk.

    For all they know, I've given up guns and will not speak of them again. So that leaves me with only being able to listen to their stories about golf, wine tasting, Liberal political activist groups, Pride marches and Seattle socialite clubs. (sigh) Sometimes, I feel like I'm caught in a bad episode of the former TV series, "Frazier." LOL

    This ol' country boy just hasn't found a way to fit in... with my photography, storm chasing and firearms sporting hobbies! From now on, I'm a fly on the wall.

    Glad to see you can approach the situation with a little humor now. It always cuts the tension.

    I agree, glad to see your sense of humor is still there. It may be a good idea to go talk to a professional and get all these feelings sorted out. It sounds like things are taking a toll on you and getting some help in sorting it all out could do wonders.

    You should also see a lawyer to get your legal questions answered. Information is power and the more info you're armed with, the more comfortable and confident you'll become in dealing with this most recent incident.

    Keep the faith brother.

    Any body who chooses not to carry a weapon for whatever reasons that make them the "Anti's" that they are, have no say in the matter nor should you consult with them. Had they been in the same situation, they would have done the same thing except if the situation escalated, they would have no way to defend themselves. Sometimes the fights come to us and we have no say in how we are picked for them. Your doin fine bgriffin70, keep your cool and be smart about these things

    the antis and the people making the comments to you about your gun totin ideals (I can't say what I really want to say since it would violate forum rules)

    you are the good guy in this situation.....period

    your previous situations show LEO (at least in my view) that you're thinking the right way and looking to do what is right
    this will come in handy someday if you're actually in a shooting

    Buddy, you've got to let this go my friend.

    I've had shotguns pulled on me, knifes pulled on me, heck, I've been threatened more then I care to keep track of anymore. It's part of my job. You take it seriously, you keep your eyes open, but you let the paranoia go in one side and out the other. It's called being aware and that's all.
