    Funny look today

    I was out to dinner w/ my 2 kids. 9 ansd 11 yr. old girls. I was wearing a t shirt, shorts and a short sleeve button down shirt for a cover garment. This old couple kept giving me dirty looks as I walked to the buffet and back.
    they had me spooked that my .45 was printing or was exposed. I discretely checked once back in the booth, but no it was covered. Not sure what to make of em. I was not dressed all that sloppily or should have attracted their attention so much.
    Funny cause usually I get smiles from most folks I encounter, as I am a fairly clean cut and friendly person. I encounter all sorts of folks during my job, so am ata loss as to this couples attitude.
    Maybe i busted their kid or grand kid , who knows.

    They were probably just afraid you'd wipe out the buffet and they'd only get the leftovers! You know those old folks.............

    Maybe the gun bulged just for a second and they happened to be looking

    I don't think they spotted the gun. My 1911 is slim enough , it hides well enough. They didn't look scared or worried, just slightly peeved. It just seemed odd, cause usually I have a positive reation from most folks, unless I am doing my job. Jack Bauer? I'm not that tough.

    You’re lucky they didn’t call the fashion police. Just the shorts and knobby knees are enough to make me stare and broadcast a mental image of full length pants, take the hint. ;)

    Hmmm, I dunno what to tell ya Rocky - maybe you were faster on the draw up to the buffet bar than they were.

    I'm used to getting odd looks while out in public. I often hear whispers like 'His poor mother', but I dunno why.
