A recent thread gave me the Idea for a couple of threads so here goes the first one.
Lets say you are in a large department store, Sears/Wal Mart/ etc etc.
As you start to leave a guard approaches you and demands that hand over your bad, and follow him into the office. You are carrying in an area where it is legal, but there are still those who are very unfriendly towards it. You are pretty sure that the guard is going to accuse you of shoplifting.
What do you do?
I work on equipment for a lot of stores in my area, and I see this from time to time. Everything from asking people to check their bag, and letting them go, to a manager, and two teenage cart boys chasing a guy through the parking lot grabbing at the guys shirt. LOL
Personally I don't want to put myself in a situation where there are no witnesses, so that they could lie to cover their butts and land me in jail in the process. All they would have to do is grab an item off the shelf and tell the cops that it was stolen, or else accuse me of threatening them with my weapon.
It isn't very likely, but then again it is always best to be prepared.
I have given this some thought, and have something that might work but I will see what your responses are first.
