My wife (who has carried since 2000) used to get mad at me in restaurants, since instead of me looking at her while we were talking, I was constantly looking around. At first she thought I was looking at other women.....Then after she started carrying & became more aware of her surroundings, she started doing the same. Now there's two of us with our heads on a swivel.
I still get a chuckle out of her when she sees ple, she'll shake her head & say something about them being in 'White'.
I think that her learning about the 'Conditions', really brought home the mind set of being aware of what's going on around her & now she notices others who do & don't (the majority) pay attention.

I thought that was the generally accepted attire to get into FL?
This is why Florida has no crime..................huh?
Anybody who knows me knows where Im sitting in any public place. My dad calls it Wild Bill syndrome.
I guess the story is that the one time Wild Bill Hickock sat with his back to a door, he got shot in the back.
I have one friend who carries who is equally as adamant.
We probably looked silly sitting on the same side of the table for lunch a few times.
Stories like yours give me hope though.
