    Sigh......really lady? (Sonogram tech)

    So, I went in for a gallbladder sonogram bright and early at 8am today (looked clear) and when I laid down, I had to pull my shirt up, as expected. I left my G27 locked in my truck, but left my Supertuck in place. As the tech starts to position and gel me up, she stops and says, "Oh lordy, you done brought a gun up in here!??!?!" (Keep in mind, she's looking directly at it so she can see its empty) To which I, while trying not to laugh, tell her no, its only the holster. "Is that legal?" Sigh.....so I got question after question which I answered politely.

    She wound up not being anti-gun, just extremely ignorant of the law and about guns in general. She was also rather surprised when I started listing all the businesses around mine that had been robbed in the past year. "I thought that was a good area" to which I replied, "The world has moved on, there are no good areas anymore"

    Maybe you pushed her over the edge and converted one to come over to the good side.

    Bio, I think you did a good thing. You kept your temper, and obviously didn't put her down, or she wouldn't have continued asking questions. We need more of this to happen.

    I like how my fiancee who is anti gun questions everything I do with my gun now :p . she is very ignorant of guns and does not know the law

    "I don't think you can carry that here!" (when walking into places I know I can carry)

    "why is it just laying there loaded, shouldn't you put it away?" (when home, I have no kids...live alone)

    I think you described the vast majority of people you meet, not anti-gun, just blissfully ignorant. Good job educating her.

    @OP, I think you did a great job in handling it. I gotta admit though I have to wonder if the thought running through her head while she looked at an empty holster was...

    "If it's not holstered, where is it?!"

    I would have left the holster with the gun, no reason to remove it if not cleaning or shooting...

    Agreed, although I personally do not find any humor in the statement.
    It's dry reflection of real world current and modern living fact.
    Which is IMHO sad and unfortunate.

    A person should be able to go to the doctor or drive up/down/across town and not have to think let me get my gun and holster up before walking out my door.
    There should be "good areas", and those areas should be everywhere where every person of any socio-economic background might sleep n' eat.

    But sad fact is Aunt May, Sheriff Andy and Deputy Fife as well as Otis the cordial & respectful town drunk have all passed away.
    The children they and others left behind are not so friendly, not so cordial, not so trusting and most pies served these days come from the frozen section of the local supermart and rather than being air cooled in a window are microwaved and eaten as whole by a single mother...
    While watching television news reports of her sons & friends being 'cuffed n' stuffed' by cops who now days dress and act no different than those doing time in the military at foreign lands such as overseas and up the street at the state penitentiary.

    Times have changed.

    Goof job Mortis for being cordial and informative as well as understanding (the bigger man) as rather than short and combative as some people would and do respond in such cases, being poor examples for the rest of us good people.

    Every time there's a report of an armed home invasion on the news, I make it a point to say, "That's why people keep guns at hand even when home," to my wife. I get to say it pretty regularly these days. She's not anti-gun, more indifferent than anything. She's starting to agree with me.

    Sig, I was at hunt camp one year. I left my cocked and locked 1911 in the pocket of my cot. I carry the .44 when out in the field. I went to check it and someone had unloaded it for me. I guess it made some people uneasy. I was pissed. Stay out of my gear! Glad they didn't shoot them self.

    why not carry both the 1911 and the .44 and ctsketch, not to be disrespectful, maybe you should consider educating your fiancee more, obviously guns are part of your life, you need to try to get her more used to them and educate her on the law. If she is not willing, better concealment is in order

    I have a hard mount holster in my center console that I use if I can't take a gun somewhere... My favorite burrito places serve beer, movies, posted place, post office (park on the street), etc.

    Removing the holster is easy, reholstering requires loosening the belt and is kind of a pain. So I move from one holster to the other and wear an empty holster.

    don't always take my holster off when I have to take gun off (as when I go into Wi 10 miles to pick up a load) just keep it covered as if I'm ccw.
