    Talking I hope everyone likes this

    SO Im in the bathroom in shoprite - mount pocono PA.

    From the beginning:
    Going about my usual shopping route. Talked to a few people at the deli, educated a couple who recently moved here from kalifornistan on the OC and CC laws when they asked about my gun, bringing up the fact that they have never seen ANYONE but police like that (normal person carrying a gun in public, no fliers handy, but I DID write down this website for them). I went to the bakery to get a half-dozen doughnuts. I got icing on my hand from a doughnut and had to go wash it off, on the way to the bathroom I picked up a couple things from the meat department.

    I get into the bathroom and JUST start washing the now very sticky icing off of my hands when a guy comes out of the stall and starts washing his hands in the sink next to me. His eyes IMMEDIATELY go to my side (my strong side is facing him) and his eyes just stay fixated on my gun. He washed MUCH quicker then I did and because of that I had to wait for the hand dryer as he was trying his damnedest to dry his hands as fast as he could and he is still fixated on the gun...

    He walks out the door BACKWARDS STILL STARING at my waistline with a facial expression kinda like this



    Now I would have tried to educate him on the laws and such, but as I walked out of the bathroom he was by the bread section, looking back at the bathroom corridor, saw me and and basically scurried away.

    If your head is up your *$$ you are unaware of danger. You are in the perfect position to kiss it goodbye.

    Jeez, what were you OC'ing a high-point?

    Maybe he thought you were an LEO or worse he's thinks you are a serial killer and you're stalking him.

    That's funny! On a serious note, some people just don't get it, and won't ever get it.

    Now that funny! No I wasnt, but if I was EVER to carry a hi-point I think it would be WELL concealed and NEVER spoken of... (No offense to any high point owners out there) I would have asked him if there was a problem, but I think he might have jumped out of his skin.

    Funny! Since you had first choice of the sinks, why leave your weapon side open for view? I still sit with my back to the wall in restaurants, etc., force of habit I suppose!

    I stopped to get pizza last night and have been open carrying a lot lately. The two girls in the pizza shop both took a nice look at the gun on my belt. It was kinda like that " I see it, oh crap he saw me see it" lol

    I always try to sit with my back to a wall or my gun side in at a booth. Not that I mind people seeing my weapon, I try not to leave it vulnerable.

    Check out the rig I was wearing at the pizza shop.

    You should've snuck up behind him on the bread aisle and went, "BOO!!!"

    When you walked out of the bathroom, you could have looked at him, held up that 2-finger V (like the victory sign), but make that motion from your eyes to his...I'm watchin' you sign...

    Good thing he didn't see you on his way into the stall... he might've sh** his pants... and that would have been a different sight, altogether!

    The sinks are set up one next to the other and they are both in open view once you come out of a stall or into the bathroom. I do the same in restaurants, back to a wall and facing the door.

    Its just too hard to explain a facial expression in words. Used my google-fu to find something that looked like it, and lo and behold, I found that one. Damn near PERFECT!
