My wife, daughter and I went out to eat tonight at a new restaurant in town. It's a nice place in an old historic building. I took my usual seat so I could watch the front. I quickly scanned the dining area. The place was about 3/4 full of respectable looking people. After a few minutes my wife remarks that every male in the place is sitting so he can see the entrance. I look around and sure enough, every man is facing the front. Then I notice, two guys with loose open light jackets/shirts, a guy with a fanny pack, another with a tactical vest, and a 1/4 of the guys with swivel heads checking the area.
We had a very pleasant dining experience. You have to love Florida.

We just arrived back from dinner too, and it was the same with our dinner party. God bless Texas, God bless Florida... God Bless the USA.

Could have been the secret service expecting the president. Well?
Man you never see that in The People's Republic of Minnesota. Too many sheep here.

My wife dosn't quite understand it when I ask for a table off to the side/corner or when I take the chair so I can see the door. Bless her heart, she tolerates me.

Nice, I carried tonight, but had to disarm before we went into the restaurant. I hope TN passes the legislation allowing hcp holders to carry into places that serve alcohol.
You must have been on the west coast where I am.
As for the facing the door thing The Boss and I have been married 39 years. The way we sit at a table is now instinctive. I face the door or the open floor space. It just happens.
Gun control is hitting what you aim at
I live in N.E. Ohio, there's way too many clueless people around here. When I sit at a resteraunt, I can immediately pick out cops, mil/former mil and CCW'ers. I imagine they pick me out, too. Everybody else has their head down grazing.
My wife usually gets the lookout seat before I can call it. That's OK, she has more cartridges than I do.

There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

My husband and I flip for the watch seat. We boith take it in turns so that the other can enjoy the meal, or watch the back of the resturaunt, just in case. It is nice when we are both able to share in the experience. I like him watching cause he has more ammo than I do, but I like watching because it builds my skills. Sometimes we get lucky and go out with friends and we both get to watch. Friends don't even notice that we grab the lookout seats first.
