    Excuse Me Sir....Your Gun is Showing

    I carry all day/every day, most of the time I carry open but with cold weather, my sidearm does get covered by my jacket or vest. Yesterday, while grocery shopping, I had a down vest on that came down just past the end of the barrel of my Springfield. When I reached up to get something, my weapon was briefly exposed....I saw the face on an old lady and I knew I had her full attention. She pushed her buggy up to me and said " Excuse me sir, but your gun is showing" I told her that it was OK, that I had a license and it was legal to carry openly.....she said" Well I need to get me a holster then" and pulled a small pistol out of her shirt. The little pistol looked as old as she was but I have a feeling that little old lady could put it to good use if she had to.
    I thought that was so funny....right there by the canned beans.

    Great story.
    Just out of curiosity, when you say she pulled it out of her shirt... exactly how was she carrying it in her shirt? Was it in a pocket?

    DON'T MESS WITH GRANNY!

    ...Little old ladies are sometimes scary...

    (I know the idea of my grandmother carrying scares me terribly.)

    Kinda reminds me of a personal story; I was about 8 or 9, and was grocery shopping with my grandmother. She asked me to dig out her list in her purse... I found the list, but I also found her .357. You must have pushed me over with a feather because she started laughing, and simply said "the neighborhood isn't what it used to be." This was way back when, CCW was very much illegal. She has been dead a long time, and that 357 resides in my own safe now.

    While I haven't seen any of that.. one of the things I have noticed a lot lately is when I go to the gun range there are a lot of women there. I mean, 10 years ago the only time I saw a woman at the gun range was if she was accompanying her boyfriend/husband. But now I see them in there by themselves or with a group of woman on a regular basis. I think that is a fantastic thing. I hope to see more of it, and little old ladies alike.

    I have to admit, I am not sure either of my grandmothers should be carrying a gun. Both are in their upper 80's and I doubt either one has the strength to rack the slide on my glock.

    My Grandmother used to have a bicept that most guys could not get from working out at a gym. You try scrubbing pot and pans so they sparkle.

    Don't mess with old people,especially old men.They may be vets.They can't outrun you or outfight you so they will just shoot you and be done with it.

    A few years ago when I was still neck deep in an inner city high school, a teacher got jumped after school by an entire family for the crime of confiscating an iPod disrupting his classroom. The girl he took it from actually slapped him across the face when he took it, but instead of having her arrested as was the county policy the liberal principal at the time sent her home on 10 days outdoor suspension which was really just a 10 day vacation. So she returns to the campus that afternoon late when she knew the teacher would be tutoring for the state FCAT exams on his own time. She, her crackhead mother and her brother the Golden Gloves boxer also a doper, all jumped this small sheep of a math teacher and they beat him almost to death. They broke his jaw in 3 places. That day, I was out sick and home. His room was located right across the hall from mine. Had I been there, I likely would have been right there because I used to stay late to grade papers and let the nuts clear the parking lot first. But I wasn't. So the kids all ask me the next day: "HEY DUDE! You 'Fraid to come to school now?" to which I always gave the same slightly sad reply: "Look folks: I'm too young to die and too old to take a butt whuppin', SO ..... I'm just gonna KILL YA!" And I'd watch as their eyes got the size of dinner plates and they would whisper: "Yeah, we kinda thought you'd say something like that... You sir, are a dangerous man." I'd had a time or two in the past when I'd had to prove that and the word spread as I moved from school to school as friends would call their buddies in the next school like: "Hey! You got a great new government teacher headed your way. He's former US Army Officer. Cool dude, but don't you mess with this guy, cuz bro, he'll kill you graveyard dead." And NO I never killed a student. I just let them know that I could and that I had no reservations about so doing in order to protect myself.

    I have my grandmother's 1903 /32 colt in the safe. Fun shooting gun.

    Local range has Tuesday 'ladies night'. Women shoot free from 5-8. It's very busy.

    Not only husbands/boyfriends/fathers taking their wives/girlfriends/daughters, but women showing up by themselves or with a friend to shoot a box.
    (Truth be told, there are a few women that show up that wouldn't need a gun.
