    What to do when you get 'made'

    So recently I went over to a friends house for a BBQ get together. We had all our riding buddies there just hanging out grilling burgers and dogs havin a good ole time. I had my gun concealed in an IWB holster. Well eventually one of my friends brushed up on me and managed to dig his side right into my gun since he was squeezing between me and another friend and the first thing out of his mouth when turns around is "IS THAT A GUN?' very loudly. At that point I had various reactions going through my mind all of them including calling him a frickin idiot! Well as every head swiveled my direction I ended up admitting it and brought it out to the house owner who in fact is military!!! So I'm like sweet! A gun friendly household! He actually ends up bringing out his M4 and showing everyone the goods. Lots of ooh's and aah's. So it turned out pretty good and we were all happy campers lol.
    The best way to stop incoming fire is accurate outgoing fire.

    What to do if "made"? Chowing down on BBQ sounds like as good a "response" as any. Good call ... lucky you!

    What works for me is, "no you fool, it's my colostomy bag but thanks for crushing the poop out of me!" It's easier to get away with that when you're past 70.

    Yell, "ah!! Get it off! Get it off!" And start smacking around your holster...

    That or say, "no, I'm just happy to see you."

    Except for folks at "military" gun-toting barbeques, it seems. Bright-eyed, bushy-tailed lot, those folks.

    Ya never know. All it takes is one, and one being "outraged" or surprised enough to loudly "out" a person.

    Very obnoxious to yell something like that.

    Would you care to define "Protection"

    Sorry, couldn't pass that one up.

    my very close friends know i carry and they are OK with it. some carry themselves and a few is considering getting their permit.

    no stranger has ever said anything to me. i have been carrying for 8 years now.

    in a few occasions girls i know have touched my holstered gun while giving me hugs but none have said anything, either they just didn't notice or they dont care. most of m friends know i own guns, few know i carry. no negative reactions so far.

    How do you know? If I was there, you probably got made and I didn't say anything about it.

    Only thing Id be worried about getting "made" is a burger and some baked beans.
