He said "I thought MS was an open carry state"...I explained to him...sorta

He said He didn't give a sh!t...and He didn't...no one said a thing

I would mind my own business unless I knew them really well.

Otherwise, try to keep my distance because that's where the first bullets would be headed.

You know I dont usually keep my mouth shut. To me, thats a conversation starter when done politely. Maybe he just came "untucked" or made a bad fashion decision that day. I guess it depends on his demenor and overall profile. Keep in mind that some of 'us' are more observent and aware of our surroundings than the common sheeple. I can tell I print and still wear some things.Anyway, spill the beans and telll us the details bro. What, When, Who, Where, and How?

well i was eating at the golden coral and the guy in line in front of my had a little j frame tucked in his pants. he was in church cloths and thought he might appreciate me whispering to him "hey your pistol is showing" but he kinda got pissy about it and started drawing alot of attention to him self which kinda made it worse = (

He's an idiot! You politely letting him know by whispering to him that you just happened to notice his CCW was showing was no reason for him to blow it out of proportion unless he was carrying illegally. He made the situation worse by blowing his top and attracting more attention to himself and the fact that he was carrying. If I had been him I would have said thanks didn't realize I was showing and made a mental note to be more careful and not wear that clothing next time I was carrying unless I kept a jacket on to keep it covered. I guess I can understand being upset that he had been "made" when you pointed out especially if you had caused a ruckus about it but if you were trying to be polite and not draw attention to either of yall what's it gonna hurt. I would also have kept an eye on him after that cause if he's so hot headed that you pointing it out upset him to the point that he caused a scene then he is hot headed enough to do something stupid.

MMOB and keep a watch on them. Make sure I have either cover I can drop behind or get out the door as fast as possible without making a ruckus.

MMOB. What if he is wanted or a felon? You may expose yourself and family to an individual who you don't want exposure to. And he may feel threatened, no matter how nice or subtle you tried to be. No, unless it is someone I know, I'll just watch him closely and not say anything. Self preservation has to take priority over being polite.

I keep my mouth shut. I don't know the guy's situation or what he's up to. I've already made him but he hasn't made me. That gives me the tactical advantage should things go south. At this point I'm mentally preparing to rock out with my Glock out should Mr. Non-Observant try something stupid.

Always MYOB because of situations like that . You try to be nice they get pissy then I get mad. . . . . . .I print all the time I don't care . I don't necessarily want people telling me i'm printing , and if i'm in a bad mood I might say mind your own business .

Depends on what kinda of vibes I was getting at the time.
Yep....


I have at time inquired about what they had... what-the-heck... I like guns.. and they can't very well hate them.. so might as well talk something we both like. ( did that at a funeral once, I mean how many times can you talk about poor dead aunt Gurdy) .. befor long there was 10 or so of us talking about hunting/fishing/drinking coffee... really pissed my wife off though.

Some people seem kinda anal about it, Like I just was thier private parts and shouted "what a little *&^%^%" so ... yeah gotta go with the vibe thing.

:lol3:

I'd tell him and go on about my business. How he reacts is up to him. I have no control over that.

I cant imagine getting pissy with someone for doing me a favor.Being made must be an awkward situation, for me it would be awkward because I didnt know if i had alarmed anyone and I would offer an apology first or something to de-escalate the situation. "The guy with the gun is screaming" is not something I want to have to deal with and I sure as hell dont want to be the guy with the gun screaming...that guy was a real piece of work. You should have just taken his weapon and pistolwhipped him with it for being a rude idiot. Or (more realisticly) said something to the effect of " Way to represent armed citizens to the public there buddy, gonna go get drunk and speed through a school zone next?"
