So Sunday morning I decided to run to the store to stock up on the various things a growing kid needs. Wallet in pocket and ready to feel the hit of a hungry ten year old, I decided to go for comfort and speed and threw on the PPQ in it's OWB holster.
Flash forward to the store, it's around 10:30am, and starting to get busy. I'm only wearing jeans and a simple hoodie, and the firearm is clearly visible on the hip.
This isn't the first time I've OC'ed to this store or others, and as usual it was a non event, no comments or odd looks, until right as I was checking out. One checkout lane beside me is an LEO in standard on-duty attire, and we're being checked out at the same time. As we're leaving, the man helping him with his bags glances at me and asks "Are you a cop too?"
Before I can respond the LEO turns, glances at me, then the gun, and then says "Nope, just looks like a good citizen to me." Then he keeps walking, bag helper moving to catch up.
Just thought I'd share, I was a bit stunned for a moment, in the couple of seconds that took place I expected numerous things, less pleasant than what actually occurred. Still no noticeable reaction from other patrons either.
Damn I love Alaska (at times :P)
