Today's OC outing
This afternoon I took the wife to Wally World. I OC'd, she didn't carry at all. Had just a glance or two. Nothing said.
Then we went for a walk at the city park. Both of us OC'd. We usually make about 8 laps around the park. Somewhere around the 3rd lap around, a little boy about 8 years old says, "Is that a real gun?" (He spotted the 3" SP101 on my wife's 2 O'clock). I said, "why yes it is".
We just kept on walking and I heard the little boy say, "sweeeeet".
Every lap around after that, he's pointing my wife out to the other kids, boys and girls, and telling them that she is carrying a gun. (like he was very impressed by it).
She thought it was kinda funny.
We don't think he even saw the Ruger LCR that was on my 2:30.
Glock 26 XD9sc
Ruger SR9c Ruger LCP

One person at a time...
The more people who "peaceably survive" encounters with OC, the more people will come to simply accept it as a normal choice that some of us have made.
That which does not kill us leaves us broken and bleeding...
Donít mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

Ahh interesting that the cycle of socialization hasn't taught this kid guns are bad yet. Maybe you have planted the seed for this little kid to believe legal carry of a firearm is a good thing. You never know!
