very good point shooterready. thanx for your opinion.
so shockwave what you are saying is that me sitting at a booth alone, not engaging anyone, minding my own business reading a catalog i alarmed people?because if you read the entire post you would know that i wasnt in there raising any alarm, didnt have attitute. not even after the employee told me he was goin to get a higher power to deal with me. i didnt give him any reason to approach me in the first place. yet he did because of comfort level. which i am not responsible for maintaining that for them. i do see everybody's point of keeping on the DL but if its my and i didnt break any laws, why should i hide it? just to keep people satifstied with their comfort? i think not. not my place to make people comfortable.so again not that i dont see your point, i just aint goin to go out of my way to make others comfortable. thank you for your rersponse and opinion.
i normally dont like toasted subs, but next time ya, i will def leave that option open.thank you hoganbeg.lol.
Hey, just a heads up OP. If you use the quote with reply button when referring to other posts we can follow the thread better.
right. if you were here you would know better. but hey again thanks for your opinion.
Then OC becomes illegal in your state. Do you think that is a win?
Had you covered up when asked that person would have walked away from you thinking that you were a reasonable guy. You may have been the first OCer that ever came into their store. They may have walked away from their encounter with you thinking nice thoughts about a man with a gun in their store. Now everyone who comes into their store after you will be lumped into the "pushy jackwagon" stereotype. Do you think this is a win?
If you still say yes then we can't help you here on DC.
The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.
you really dont understand. people around here are very hard headed, had i concealed it they would still had called the cops, then i would of had to provide them with ID when they showed up and had given up my privacy for their comfort. like i said i get what you guys are saying about being discreet and bowing down to those who dont understand yet. i got it. just not in my nature to just say ok yes sir when i havent done anything wrong.hadnt given them a reason to approach me.i told them my rights and they didnt like me knowing and excersizing.thats why it got where it got.again i do value all of your opinions and i am using those opinions in the future.why do you think i am here responding civilly and not cursing at all the negative opinions that i have received. thank you all for your opinions.even if i do consider them to be negative.thank you.
A lot of good advice in this thread for sure. JMO, but way too much drama right at dinner time.

Allow me to ask a question. Why do you carry a gun?
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
why do i carry a firearm?few reasons. reason number one. i have a beautiful 5 year old daughter to come home to and to provide for everyday. that child is my whole life.i have given up many things to accomadate my childs needs. second reason is because of all the drug activity that goes on around my area.all the news about drug addicts killing for their fix, robbing people just to get their fix and when they get caught (if they get caught) all they get is a small amount of jail time then they are back on the streets doin it again.i will not be a victim of any of those petty rediculous crimes and i will not let some piece of **** tweaker subject my daughter to that kind of nonsense.third reason, i live in an area where people of color are not very welcomed. i have lived it.i normally avoid them and walk on egg shells to not piss them off with my presence and i am tired of that crap.i have had teachers, when i was in high school call me vulgar names and people on the street do the same.and i am tired of it.this town use to be a huge KKK supporting town and i know of a few that still do.
so you ask why i carry a firearm?the most basic reason is for protection.not just for my self but my family.look i have no problem fighting with my 2 hands but if the fight gets one sided, wether its due to the opponent having a weapon all of the sudden or their are more than one perp, i have no problem making sure that i get home to my daughter (my whole world) even if i have to use all 32 rounds that i carry as part my daily routine. thank you for your time and opinion.i do value every opinion even if i see them to be negative.thank you.
Just me but, I would be very concerned about someone who is making my dinner's comfort level towards me. Have you ever seen Super Troopers? That kid spit in your sub.
