    Interesting experience

    The other day I was working outside on a project for a charity. It was hot so I took my shirt off. Most of the people I was working with know I carry and most carry themselves. It got close to lunch time and I told them I was going to lunch. I went to my favorite Mexican restaurant and it was I was so hot I left my shirt off. When I walked into the restaurant there was a table full of ladies in the back. They all were staring at me. WOW! I was hot but I am not hot like that. I thought it was because of my open carrying. I sat down and ordered. While waiting the ladies got up to check out. To my surprise they were all wearing Glocks. It was a bunch of female deputies in plain clothes from the sheriffs department. Not a word was spoken.

    Most places i eat do not let people eat in with their shirts off . I think maybe it was because you came in with no shirt . IMO

    Hey, maybe it was because you were HOT like the way that you don't think that you are.

    We need PICS of you shirtless in order to decide.

    Can't say I've ever seen a shirtless man in a restaurant before. Interesting (that you were not asked to come back when you had a shirt), indeed.

    Although I understand what you wish, from experience, most female police officers aren't hot...that's television...yep, they're all 22 years old with 10 years of experience.

    ... except when one gets nods of approval.

    Can't say as I've ever tested those waters, myself.

    A couple of questions for those at Table #8 might have been: What color pants did that guy have?, and Did you think he was a felon or just a typical CO dude in from the heat?

    They were just enthralled with those 12 pack abs of yours. Anyone can have 6 pack abs. It takes a real man (and lots of beer) to develop a good set of 12 packs.

    Well, then! Your highly-visible pecs, abs and delts are to be commended. Nods of approval from Table #8, no doubt, were for all that and more, eh?
