should I have done this?NoThe only thing I wished I'd said when I handed her the CPL was "Relax, your now safer, since I am here" I didn't say it, and I wasn't carrying anyways since I know its a no gun zone.Don't bother, your giving them money arn't you? Kind of a moot point then?Maybe I should print out some of those business cards meant to be handed to "no gun" businesses and give her one next time
Honestly I would not have shown my CHL. I would have not revealed at all that I am carrying or have ever carried.
IMO unless you are on the floor dying from a heart attack drawing attention to yourself is never a good idea for any reason.
