So a co-worker and I leave work for lunch today in a neighboring little town. He's one of my shooting buddies, so I was showing him my newly acquired 1911. I put it IWB at 3:00 OC (not a tuckable IWB holster) and we head off. Mind you, I'm in black dress pants, yellowish long sleeve dress shirt, and red tie (fashion was never one of my strong points).
We go into the fast food place and there are several people around and an older couple that walked in behind us. I walk up to the counter to order as I'm looking at the menu and when I look back the guy behind the counter has his arms stuck STRAIGHT UP IN THE AIR with his eyes as big as baseballs. I simply ask him the difference in a regular and a deluxe and he replies and I say I'll have the regular and a Dr. Pepper and he says real loud, "you can have anything you want, man!!!" I said, "Dude?!?!?!" and he puts his hands down. Then he proceeds to ask in a loud voice, "You a cop?" to which I reply "no sir." He says, "So you just carry a gun because you want to?" to which I reply, "I find it much easier than carrying a police officer." He then says if I was I could get a discount, and I reply, "I'm fairly certain I'm not."
Then this guy proceeds to say he's thinking about getting his concealed permit and I reply, "I've had mine a while. I usually carry concealed, but today with a shirt and tie I didn't have a cover garment."
My co-worker and I were talking while we ate lunch and he said, "anyone that acts that stupid I hope he doesn't get his permit." I have to say I agree. Anyway, I apologize if this is another boring "someone acting like a doofas to my OC" thread. That's the first reaction of this manner I've had. Wish I had thought of something a little wittier to say.

I OC all the time. Never had anything more than the occassional weird look.
I agree with Bugs. ;)
It would have been really bad if he had his hands up because the guy behind you had pulled a gun out

Perhaps you have educated him a bit and he may land in the 'real world'. Everyone starts somewhere...even 'marooooons'.

LOL, it takes all kinds. It's a wonder he didn't freak out everyone else in the place and get the cops called.

That has to be the real crime here... I'm not very fashionable, but wow... You're one of them colorful, CA transplants aren't ya...Mind you, I'm in black dress pants, yellowish long sleeve dress shirt, and red tie (fashion was never one of my strong points).
Wow +1000 gangsta points, you didn't even get your hand on the gun before he was ready to empty his register, super size your meal, and bend over! But I am taking away 500 points for the yellow shirt/red tie combo, is your last name McDonald?
What an idiot. I hope if he was trying to be a wise guy he realizes he could have really started a mess. If another armed person in there thought you were robbing the place and just started shooting it could've been a very bad day.
