    Larry the Cable Guy

    The other day I swapped cable providers, so when the two installers showed up to install the new hardware, I as usual was OCing my XD40. I had to walk them around an we talked about what I wanted. Nothing was said on their part about my weapon until the install was over, they looked at me and asked if everything was to my liking, and I said it sure was.

    Then when they got ready to leave they said were glad that you're satisfied beings that your packing a gun. We all had a laugh and then I told them that there was no need to worry, it was for personal defense and not the cable guy.

    It was a good moment and we had a good chat. Its funny that they waited until they were about to leave before they brought up the gun issue

    They probably discussed it amongst themselves to gather up the courage, and figure out if you're a nut or not.

    Also a good opportunity to get them to adjust the bill.

    So there is good service out there. Wonder if they come back if your having problems, or flip a coin at the shop to see who goes.

    Geesh Sixto, We all know you don't like the XD, but don't call the guy a nut...
