Privately, I joke with my oldest brother (card carrying republican) that he is an anti-gun liberal because he owns a hunting gun, but no rounds in the house, does not own a handgun, does not have a CC permit. I'm the youngest, the middle and I do this to him all the time, when it is just immediate family. We sometimes ask to see his man card.
Well, guess my nephews (all are 16+) shared my middle brother and I carry with a cousin-in-law of theirs when they found out he just received his CC permit. So he (the in-law) greated my brother and I by saying, "I got my man card."
3rd party hears, notices that we are showing our permits to each other, who I know is a bit anti, asks in unapproving tone, "You carry a LOADED gun?" Without pause I state, "Well not loaded." She did not get the sarcasm, walks away stating, "Well thats good, but by the time you load it, it would be to late." I reply, "Thats a good point, I'll think about that."
I've really enjoyed that. Maybe she was being sarcastic, IDK, but still, was an interesting interaction.
