I teach CHL classes in my state. I was getting a haircut at this barber shop...its not a chain..its a mom & pop barbershop. While me and son are getting our trims he asks what i do so I tell him. He stop cutting and looks at me with shock and im like 'oh boy this guy is gonna freak'. He then says he will be right back and grabs a sheet of paper and runs back to me. Its a list of folks he has who need to take CHL classes. So thanks to this guy I had 24 people to teach.
He asked if I was carrying I said I was and he asked what i had. I think at the time it was a 1911. He said he would have never known I was packing if he hadnt asked. So now its a great place to go get a haircut as all the guys there carry now i think.
Sounds like you have a cool barber. The barber shop I go to is staffed by 3 men, 2 of which are also farmers. There is always a GUNS & AMMO magazine or some gun rag to read along with a few comic books, car magazines, fishing, hunting etc. The one guy who I prefer to cut my hair and I always seem to start talking guns while getting cut. I'm not sure how it came up the first time but he asked about CC and I acknoledged I was and asked if he was, he wasn't. Over the following weeks he purchased a LCP and was having trouble finding ammo for it. I talked to him more about taking the class and he eventually did. I'm not sure if he's got his permit yet. Last time I was getting my hair cut the "been doing any shooting lately" question didn't come up until a lady and her son came in. I don't have any idea what this lady's name is but I know she is local LEO. I resisted the urge to keep quiet and told the barber about the recent nighttime defensive pistol shoot I participated in. Didn't seem to be any reaction from the policewoman either way so that was good.

The girl who cuts my hair likes to go shooting with her boyfriend, so we'll talk guns while she's working. I came in one day, sat in the chair & she threw the smock thing over me. I proceeded to tell her" check out the new holster I got". She lifted up the smock thing & said "WOW, that is awesome!!"
I called her back a couple hours later & said, "You know, you were the only one who knew you were looking at a holster under there. I can only imagine what the other customers were thinking."
She said she thought about it afterward too, but whatcha gonna do?

I recently changed dentists and we were getting acquainted while I was sitting in the chair and he had his hands in my mouth. He asked my occupation and I told him I was a retired LEO and I worked parttime in a gun shop. He guessed which one and asked me if I was carrying. I said yes and he wanted to know what and where. I told him my 1911 in a Crossbreed. He laughed and pulled up his shirt and showed me a Kimber in a Crossbreed. He had a new assistant who expressed concern over guns. His response was to get used to it because half his staff carried and any patient was welcome to who was legal.
