I was out to dinner w/ my 2 kids. 9 ansd 11 yr. old girls. I was wearing a t shirt, shorts and a short sleeve button down shirt for a cover garment. This old couple kept giving me dirty looks as I walked to the buffet and back.
they had me spooked that my .45 was printing or was exposed. I discretely checked once back in the booth, but no it was covered. Not sure what to make of em. I was not dressed all that sloppily or should have attracted their attention so much.
Funny cause usually I get smiles from most folks I encounter, as I am a fairly clean cut and friendly person. I encounter all sorts of folks during my job, so am ata loss as to this couples attitude.
Maybe i busted their kid or grand kid , who knows. :confused:

I don't think they spotted the gun. My 1911 is slim enough , it hides well enough. They didn't look scared or worried, just slightly peeved. It just seemed odd, cause usually I have a positive reation from most folks, unless I am doing my job. Jack Bauer?:icon_neutral: I'm not that tough.

You’re lucky they didn’t call the fashion police. Just the shorts and knobby knees are enough to make me stare and broadcast a mental image of full length pants, take the hint. ;)

Hmmm, I dunno what to tell ya Rocky - maybe you were faster on the draw up to the buffet bar than they were.

I'm used to getting odd looks while out in public. I often hear whispers like 'His poor mother', but I dunno why. :haha:

I get those looks quite alot in the summer time from people because im pretty heavily tattooed. Even though i got most of my tats while serveing in the Marine Corps some 20 + years ago they probably thing im some kind of biker or ex con, which is not the case. So over the years i've learned to ignore it with the old attitude of if you dont like it , dont look. I do however try to cover up while im at church or any other big social event.

HARDCORE

I've been out to dinner with my wife and three very well behaved children and have gotten "unpleased" looks from older people. It seems that older people either love children and temporarily "adopt" your children as their grandchildren or they don't like them at all.

I'm not suggesting that your children are running rampant and disturbing others but it seems some older people do not enjoy having children around when they are out to dinner.

You should have used that old New York/Joey line, "You lookin' at ME?", that way you'd know. :rolleyes:

Papascout, you may be right. My kids were well behaved and quiet. (no always the case). Guess some folks like to have something to complaint about too.
