Came home from a 900 mile trip to Lancaster PA. Had my Glock 43X unloaded, in a suitcase in the hatchback, empty magazines.No comments, but I'm pretty sure the only time I screwed up, was on a stop at a Chick-fil-a. I got out of my truck, and apparently my shirt had run up over my IWB Glock. My wife jumped in line while I headed to the men's room, when I realized my gun was exposed. Oops, no eyeballs on me that I noticed, but I'm sure a few people in the busy restaurant spotted my carry. I'm just glad I wasn't home in the Commiewealth of Mass, but was in Jacksonville, FL (Southside to be specific) :smile: . I just wish I lived there instead, lol.
Pardon me for asking this but how did anybody get that close to you without you being aware of it?Putting some goods in my Jeep, outside a big box store, felt a tug on my shirt? Looked up, saw Deputy walking away, I called "Thank you"
She lifted her hand in a silent wave. My vehicle is a marked Security Vehicle. The only time I have ever been made. That I know of.
Moving treated wood from a cart into my Jeep. Affixing a Red cloth to the ends sticking out. She was walking by, I was hot, sweaty, and tired! It happens.Pardon me for asking this but how did anybody get that close to you without you being aware of it?
That's how people get their gun snatched
I'm not claiming to be super ninja but probably the second time I got attacked I got really good at noticing people that I didn't know entering my spaceMoving treated wood from a cart into my Jeep. Affixing a Red cloth to the ends sticking out. She was walking by, I was hot, sweaty, and tired! It happens.
Even another incident, leaving First Watch in Dr. Phillips. A very large Lady was coming in, a big one via the door I was trying to leave out of.
A middle-aged Guy was sitting on the bench seat, awaiting his table? On my left, in stepping towards him, he raised a hand a protective hand. Placed it right on my Glock 19 spare magazine, under my shirt. A natural enough motion. I looked at him, he glanced at me, we both smiled.
I said the Gun is on the other side! He said, "I Know". I left, he stayed. Made? I reckon so. He was Black, I am not.
A cultural moment?
WGaS. It is no one's business who carries a gun. The inquisitive need to be told that the world would be a better place if they minded their own business rather than sticking their noses in other's lives.I just watched a YouTube video in which the YouTuber tells us he's shopping at Walmart with his family when he notices two people (random couple not thugs) following him. Eventually he asks them if there's something he can help them with and they tell him they noticed the bulge and were trying to figure out it was a gun or not. He tells them it's a colostomy bag and that's the end of the video.
That I'm absolutely positive of I've been "made" exactly once. I bent down to get something off the floor and someone behind me noticed (or really thought I had a cute butt) and gave me a thumbs up. That's the only time I'm aware of that anyone has ever "caught" me.
And then they call the cops and report a crazy man with a gun.WGaS. It is no one's business who carries a gun. The inquisitive need to be told that the world would be a better place if they minded their own business rather than sticking their noses in other's lives.
