Here's the scenario..... #1 son and I just got back from the range. He is standing at the front of our garage on a portable bench cleaning handguns and shotguns. I'm in the driveway working on some folding portable target stands. My shirt is riding up and it's pretty obvious the XDM is on my side.
There are some rental houses close by, one next door, to my house, so we occasionally see some "unique" transient neighbors. As I'm working, one guy comes walking up my driveway (about 75 feet). Never seen him before. It's about 75* and he's wearing a jacket..... I stand up and asked if I could help him. He says, "whatcha building?"
Without cracking a smile or missing a beat, I say "rifle and pistol target stands for a home defense firearms class I teach". OMG, Scotty could not have beamed this guy up any quicker than he left my drive! I don't really teach a class, it just seemed like the best smart assed answer I could come up with at the time. LOL
Son & I are rolling! 14 year old daughter gives me hell for scaring this guy.
Some days, I really love being me
