With the recent threads of honest admissions of complacency leading to ND, or discomfort with carrying with "one in the pipe," I've been inspired to confess a few not-so-correct, irrational, and humorous conceal carry issues I've encountered in my CC experience:
1. I tell people I picked the Springfield XD9 over the Glock 19 because of the grip angle, but it really is because of the XD's grip safety (irrational fear of Glock Leg)
2. I will turn my body if my 3 year old is standing in line with the muzzle of my holstered gun (even when it's in a full coverage leather/kydex holster).
3. I am amused by the 6'+ 225#+ guy to my right at the LGS talking about trading in his Ruger SR9 for a LC9, cuz it was impossible to conceal such a HUGE gun, as I am 3 feet away, concealing a gun twice the size, on a body half his size.
4. I like telling same guy what I'm carrying, and enjoy breaking the stereotype that little ladies like and need little guns.
5. The first time I understood I was likely the most "dangerous" person in the room, I felt empowered and appalled at the same time.
6. That one time I squatted down in the checkout lane to grab the soda from the bottom of my cart, I know that couple behind me saw my gun poke out and print in the most obscene way. But I don't care, in fact I'm kinda glad you saw it, you stopped your annoying bickering at each other, and could enjoy my checkout in peace.
