I'll have to try that line sometime.@ Rusty - I am always amazed by the "hammer police". These are the same people who NEVER ask me if it is safe to carry my 45 acp Glock in safety on (trigger), striker cocked position...??? People are often "ignorant" of gun facts, yet comfortable to make stupid statements around the carrier of the firearm in question. I try to be polite - but have answered in the one case where a guy in line at Circle K said something with - Me holding up my index finger while smiling and saying "this gun is equipped with the best safety of all...a safe human operating it." He chuckled and that was that. I was carrying the FNX 45 with the hammer back and the safety on. 15+1 at the flip of a safety .
On topic OCing now... nobody cares...but hey, they are my family..and they understand 100% of home invasions happen....at home.
Happy thanksgiving to all.
Paver1055, I tend to get the exact opposite reaction...from college students. I still feel a bit weird everytime one of them insists on calling me "sir". Maybe I'll get used to it eventually, but I will say that I do enjoy the extra attention from the ladies...especially when the leftist (you guys know the look) boyfriend is sitting right next to them.
Sorry for the long post.Rusty - love your grit here, but sadly people here in AZ seem to have the attitude of :"oh well, someone else can stand up for MY rights. I'm too busy with _______ " fill in the blank....
Thank God for AZCDL, but even they can't do all the heavy lifting all of the time. Inaction on our part = win for gun grabbers. They will show up and get their propaganda in the news, while we go quietly into the night on this one it seems. Hope to be proven wrong. Past experience has shown (April 27, 2013 pro-2A rally at state house) that we can't even muster more than 200 supporters on a sunny 90° Saturday. This in the heart of the aftermath of Newtown & the push by government/anti-freedom folks to strip all of the gun freedoms we enjoy here in AZ. Sometimes WE are our own worst enemies.
Rant off. :what:
Thanks, I hope for the same (let them see our numbers and our dedication).@ Rusty - thank you for standing up for us in Tucson. I am a lifetime member with AzCDL and hope in the future we can coordinate a good showing of pro-2A/civil rights supporters. + a Million for your effort in "Libtard" infested Tucson, AZ!
I've heard those comments too. When people ask if its real I sometimes tell them it's a squirt gun.Glad to see you're still around Paver1055!

OCed yesterday on the way to the bus, then kind of* covered up when it started raining a bit harder. Went back to "full" OC on the bus, and heard the unsavory characters whispering about it and saying I was probably carrying unloaded or it was a toy gun? I carry Condition 1, and why would I carry a toy?
No real problems, and only a few looks from what I assume are the transplants.
*(only covered the grip, but left the holster visible)
I once in my early OC days replied to a aggressive/ unsavory character who asked such a question in a punk @$$ manner: "how bad you want to find out?" While giving him what my wife refers to as my 'your face will look great on the back of a milk carton' stare. He shut up and slithered away back to his bro's quickly. . Now a days I just smirk and say "let's hope we don't have to find out...."I've heard those comments too. When people ask if its real I sometimes tell them it's a squirt gun.

I did that once to a group of illegals hanging out at walmart hassling everyone. the shortest (and fattest) one said "you got a popgun gringo? You gonna pull it?" I said "make a move pinche hoto." He made some hand signs and all his friends laughed like morons but they were gone when i came back. Punks are the same everywhere.I once in my early OC days replied to a aggressive/ unsavory character who asked such a question in a punk @$$ manner: "how bad you want to find out?"
