    Cool conversation with a Pharmacist

    So I drop off a prescription at a local pharmacy and the guy was really cool. Said it would be 15 minutes so I said I'd wait. I grab the latest edition of Guns and Ammo and sit in a chair and do some leisurely reading. In less than 15 minutes he calls my name so I go up to the counter and lay the magazine down as I'm signing and getting my wallet out. He says, "So, you protecting your second amendment rights?" Well, not knowing from the context of the statement where this may go I replied, "Just reading." He replied, "Better get what you need while you still can." I replied, "I'm well covered, and for me it is like American Express." He nods and says, "Stay safe my friend."

    Cool interaction.

    Lot more like minded people around if we just sometimes take the time to listen and get a pulse.

    I know many Pharmacists that are "well heeled". They are like Jewelers, their stock is very attractive to the criminal element.

    I met a nice guy at the post office today. He was the maintenance guy and after finding out what I do he asked me to meet him off property by his truck to show me pictures of his range. I suspect there is a reason he was parked across the street.

    Four of my range buddies here are Physicians...can't hurt to have a Pharmacist in the mix!!! Another of them is a car guy. Now all I need is a lawyer and a landscaper and I'm covered!

    My FFL holder who does my transfers is a pharmacist who also owns a vitamin shop.
    I also just sold a P95 to a doctor.

    Drug dealers usually carry weapons. Seriously though...very cool interaction. Well played until you knew you had a friendly.

    My uncle is a retired pharmacist. He started carrying back in the mid 60's and still does. In fact he still has the Charter Arms .38 gun he started carrying.

    Cool interaction.

    I Open Carried into a pharmacy (large chain type) the day after a druggie armed with a knife tried to get narcotics; I was a little apprehensive when I walked up to the counter. The pharmacist looks at my holstered 5" 1911 style pistol carried cocked & locked paused a second then says "Where the hell were you yesterday"?

    I just smiled and said "It was his lucky day".

    He said "If the company would let me I'd have one on my belt and one under the counter".
