Young lady clerk at the jewelry store
I went to a nice jewelry store yesterday to pick out something for my wife, we have an anniversary coming up; she's put up with me buying guns for 34 years now. Anyway, a young lady sales clerk, early 20's, was helping me out. I picked out something for my wife and while the young lady was finishing things up, I asked my son, who was with me, out loud whether I should get her this jewelry or buy her a gun instead. I said it loud enough so the clerk could hear me, as my intentions were to tease her a bit. She looked up at me and said, "Absolutely, get her a gun instead". :blink: :blink: After a few seconds of discussion, we knew we were all clearly pro-gun, and I told her that I was only teasing her that my wife ccw as it was. She quietly stated to me that she does too. Of course I didn't ask her any more details and have no idea if she was actually ccw as we spoke.
Curious, I asked her was she from this area (we were in Shreveport), air force base nearby so lot's of folks from everywhere. She said no, she was originally from Kosovo, and has been in the US for ten years. She spoke perfect unaccented english, used plenty of american slang and toted a gun. I'm thinking wow. She was really pro-gun I would have liked to talk to her more, but had to rush. We wondered how much influence her Kosovo background/family experiences had to do (if anything?) with her pro-gun, pro-carry stance? You just never know who you might meet, or their background, I'd never expected that response from her.
BTW my wife already has a handgun, permit and actively carries. However, she likes jewelry, like I like guns, so I'm not complaining. :ziplip:
