I normally CC, but since I was going to an OC dinner get together, yesterday was an OC day. I went to FedEx/Kinko's, Starbucks, Staples, Best Buy (twice), Target, Walmart, and Pizzaria Uno. Nothing happened. Very few noticed, and those who did just took a quick look. No nasty looks. No snarky comments. Just a few smiles.
One funny thing happened. At Best Buy, I was squating down to see a low rack. A little boy, maybe 4 or 5, and his father walked up to look at something a little further down the aisle. I was basically at the boy's height and he was looking at my pistol. I normally wear a black Aussie hat, and yesterday was no exception. The little boy's eyes grew big as he looked at my pistol and his gaze slowly moved up to my face and hat. I stood up, and as I did, he turned to his dad and tugged on his pant leg. "Daddy!" he whispered loudly. "It's a REAL cowboy!". His dad and I looked at each other and smiled, and I walked off to look at something else. The look on the kid's face was priceless.
