Look! A Gun, That lady right there!

Postby Divided Attention » Fri Dec 07, 2012 8:24 pm

:shock: These are words you never want to hear! But hear them I did!

Earlier this week after our Kenpo class hubby and I stopped in at a local casual little place for some dinner. We were seated at a table next to 2 gentlemen and 2 little boys. As I sat down, one of the little boys said "Look! A gun! That lady right there!" :shock: The gastric elevator rose to the top as I was sure I had exposed my side arm somehow.

Then I clicked - I was wearing my 4-H shooting sports shirt and it has pistols on the back - whew! Relief! :mrgreen:

Yeah, that'll do it all right. How high do you think your heart rate and or blood pressure went up?

Yes, especially in today's society where zero tolerance means a child cannot have or draw any semblance of a gun in school.

I was fairly new to CHL when I was in line at the grocery checkout. I was wearing a leather jacket and had my weapon in the inside breast pocket. The kid right in front of me in mom's cart says, "Gun!" pointing. I looked around and said, "What?" He said gun and pointed again. I glanced as surreptitiously as I could, figuring I had exposed it somehow as well, and there was no way he made me. Then as I was looking up from checking myself, there at shoulder height on the impulse rack was a cap pistol in a blister pack. I pointed questioningly at it, he smiled and nodded. I sympathize with the laryngo-bile bypass alert.

Some one else on this forum has the funniest "caught out" story I have ever heard, but I can't get the right combo of search terms to find it, daggone it.

Basically Dad was standing in line at a fast food place (I think) with his young son, and they were behind a police officer. The boy was fascinated by all the cop gear, and asked the cop something about his gun. Without warning the youngster then yanks up his dad's shirt, exposing dad'sgun, and tells the cop "My Dad has one too!" Luckily before Dad could pass out or die from shock, the cop just burst out laughing.

I like your version better, but here is the original story you are talking about: http://www.texaschlforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=9452
