I tell people that many people OC for a wide variety of reasons.What do you say when someone asks why you're OC.
Looking for straight up answers and witty comebacks.
Since I look very little like a cop, I usually get "Are you law enforcement?" or "Are you security?"eye95 said:...But, honestly, I never get that question. It's almost always, "Are you a cop?"
It makes bullets go REALLY fast.Really depends on how the person inquires (or reacts) about the weapon on my side. I've used the "in case I have to give somebody a quick lesson in why crime doesn't pay", or "because I don't plan on loosing in a fist fight".....I didn't come up with these or the few others I'll use on occasion, but whatever line or comment I'll use I'll ALWAYS say it in some sort of jokingly manner, sometimes laughing at the comment myself, and IF, like others here have mentioned, the conversation lends itself, I'll get into why I really carry. One linners, for me, tend to lead to further conversation and in turn more education. Oh, ya, I forgot, why do I carry a gun? "in case some punk out there's feelin' lucky! Just my $.02.
