    Impressive Disney security man.

    I recently took my niece and one of her girlfriends to Disney World, Epcot to be precise. I left my Weapon in the car glove box. I did, however carry my Microtech Makora in it's belt mounted carry sheath, and on the other side my slim cellphone in it's belt case. I wore a fairly baggy long tail type shirt, out side the trousers. The slim cases for both the items were hardly noticable,much less than the weapon would have been. While standing in line at the ticket window, with a good size crowd already building, someone spoke to me from behind, 'sir, would you please let me know what you have in the pouches on your belt?' I was taken completely by surprise. I turned to see a pleasant face on a rather slightly built man probably 40ish, with a very polite demeanor. I smiled, and said, 'man you are really sharp.' I showed him the cellphone pouch, and removed the OTF automatic from the case and stated that it was only a 3 inch 'pocket knife'. He looked it over without asking to hold it, and I of course did not deploy it. He then asked me to please place the knife in my front trouser pocket. I did, and he thanked me and walked away. The surprising thing is to me, the pouches were really so non protruding, and so slightly printing when turning my body. I never would have expected in such a busy place, with such minor visibility of printing that someone would have noticed. It made me glad that I decided to leave the weapon in the car, so as to avoid a long walk back to place it in the glove box.

    He was OK with the knife, obviously. I wonder why he cared where you carried it.

    I wondered the same thing. I could not conceive of a reasonable explanation. I was, frankly, surprised that he did not question as to how it was deployed, and or request that I demonstrate it to him. I was seriously impressed that he noticed anything at all.

    I surmise that he verified that it was just a small knife.
    To place it in your pocket could be to not have any other security re- detect the same thing.

    Does Disney World have amusement park rides? Perhaps pocket knives are required to be kept in the front pocket for safety reasons or liability... or so it doesn't fall out and land on somebody.

    1) Was he in a uniform or any kind?
    2) If not, did he offer any official ID?
    3) If neither of the above, why respond?

    He must be a highly trained sheepdog like us. Probably a CCWer as well.

    That is a good reason, it may also just be the incredible sensitivity of some people to any weapon or the perception thereof. He has probably heard the phrase "That person has a weapon" in all of its different variations about a million times from concerned patrons of Mouse World.

    Due to his incredible powers of perception, he sounds like a veteran of the "Rounds" (Security) who knows how to use Preventative Minimal Action to great effect.

    A little action now saves him a lot of it later.

    Donít mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

    he was in uniform. I believe that Disney has a strict no firearm in parks policy. I can remember at least a couple of incidents which made the local news in the last few years or so. I rarely go to Disney, and when I do it is always Epcot, as there are some interesting events there throughout the year. I just never have researched their carry policy, personally.

    has a few 'rides'. That may be a reasonable explanation.
