What happened to me a few weeks ago still haunts me today. I dont know why.
A few weeks ago I went out of town with a friend who didn't know I carried. I don't know, he just never put two and two together. We ended up staying over night at a hotel and my friend suddenly noticed that I was carrying when I pulled off my shirt for a shower. His reaction was priceless and made me feel all warm and fuzzy. "Has that thing been on you ALL DAY?!" :hand10: He had no idea.
Anyway, in the morning, as I was getting dressed I put my gun in its holster like any other morning and threw my shirt over top. His comment still bothers me. "I bet you feel 10 feet tall with that thing on your hip." He didn't mean any harm, but I felt the need to defend myself against it.
"No! I have been carrying ever since I turned 21! Its for my safety." Which is totally true. I don't carry and then act like I am invincible or strut around like I can kick anyone butt.:comeandgetsome: I feel like I didn't have a good enough answer for that comment. It still haunts me today.
Has anyone else ever been confronted by this situation? If so, how did you handle it? or how would you handle it?
Thanks for all your input!
