    Not a very smart officer if he was one, no LEO in their right mind is going to pull a weapon and show it to ANYONE. Did he even clear it first?

    This one is easy. No you were not printing. That's obvious to me and I wasn't even there. This guy was lonely. He sees a lady looking at ammo and thinks to himself, "I bet she likes to fish too." You were lucky to escape. He may have abducted you and expected you to hunt, fish, and shoot with him at his cabin for the next twenty years. That was close.

    My guess is that he figured you like guns, since you were buying ammo, and he likes guns, so he figured y'all had a basis for conversation. Some people are just a little too friendly.

    Thats pretty strange, an LEO showing someone his gun. Especially in Massachusetts.

    We don't even show our guns to other Leo's in public. I've done it at the S.O. and in my car to other Leo's but even we are very careful about that.

    I don't know of anyone that would just take out their gun and show it to someone they didn't know..especially in public.

    Weird.Very weird.

    He needs the book "How to be a Good dirty Old Man". ..... LOL....

    Sounds like a guy who thought you had an interest in guns, and just wanted to talk. At our Walmart, it seems they always have conversations going on back there about guns, ammo, etc. ... ... more than I ever see in any gun shop.

    sounds like it must have been a local, small municipality officer if anything. Every member of the Mass Environmental Police I knew or worked with (100+) was a sharp, (almost) normal, LEO type. And their one hue dark green uniform (w/ badge and patch) is tough to miss.

    You did just fine but his actions were weird - very weird. Glad to hear you're getting more comfortable carrying, too.

    Unfortunately, they are out there. Back in the early 90's I was at a guard post to the NMCC at the Pentagon chatting up the DPS agent while waiting on the escort. The standard BS, is that issued, what is it... All of the sudden this moron pops the clip and pull the starp back and moves for the grip. I immediately told him no, I do not want to see it. I actually believe he was going to hand it to me. Even if not, at another Post on the NMCC, a BG gotten shot by another DPS agent chasing him. The first round hit the glass, right at head height where the post agent was sitting. The second dropped the BG. Point, if not obvious, what is beyond the posts is a target, don't give your gun away.

    The wally world walk counts extra for getting flirted with. But most bubbas will ask another at the ammo counter what they shoot...so, a lady doesn't have a chance.

    Pretty strange, but you were at Wally World.

    I have taught my wife to shoot and see a few women at the range, never one by herself. You would fit in to the catagory of "my kind of girl."

    Shoot straight and often.

    That is indeed strange. I really find it hard to believe. The last time someone pulled a gun in front of me: they were on duty; they were working at an emergency command center; they were answering a question asked by a coworker at field post, dropped the clip into free hand ejected the round in chamber; and when done explaining there point about the particular weapon she re-holstered and emphatically stated "that was not a draw but a demonstration".

    At Walmart, I was standing in front of bicycle parts looking at a hand pump and a young girl (maybe 12) started asking me questions about getting the right kind of inner tube for her bicycle. I felt honored that she would ask for my help. I helped her get the right tube. I was not wearing a vest that says "may I help you?". She then rejoined her mother not too far away.

    Another time I was standing in a Dollar store and another young girl turns to me and says "your a guy, what can I get my brother?" Then she told me her story. I helped her pick something out. She was maybe 16-17.

    I am not a dirty old man and I don't ever try to talk to females I don't know in a store. I do feel good when I am able to help someone. These were all young ladies that are younger than my daughter.

    It's hard to imagine an experienced LEO drawing his weapon unless it was with a "familiar".
