One of my very favorites is:

Customer, "Do you have any left handed bivalve sprockets?"

Me, "No!"

Customer, "NO???"

Lately all I do is stare at them after the first 'No', I don't even bother to repeat it, and I have even asked one or two if there was something that was unclear about my answer.

Of course we are also getting people in, these days, who ask, "Where are your left handed bivalve sprockets?"

And when I respond that we don't carry those in the store, they respond, "Your web site says you do!"

I then have to bring up the web site and show them that it actually is not available in the store, that it must be bought online, on our web site.

I just wear my Tiara. Nobody says anything, the salesmen are dumbstruck, and everyone gives me a wide berth so I never get stuck behind other shoppers in the aisles.

If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you carry a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?

I was told by my CHL instructor that printing was grounds for loosing your CHL. He also said if holster is visible, its the same thing as gun visible and its more or less brandishing.

I recently moved here from Oklahoma and they just last year passed laws that allow open and concealed carry, which I loved simply for the fact that brandishing when reaching for a high shelf in the store was no longer a concern.

Texas has no real 'brandishing' law. Printing is NOT illegal, but intentionally displaying your weapon is. Holster exposed would be subjective depending on if the wardrobe was purposely not enough to cover vs. accidentally exposed when reaching for something on a high shelf or bending over/squatting down.

I met so many incompetent instructors during my 2 years living in oklahoma than I can understand. There are a bunch of them, and they almost all have bad advice. I still remember sitting through an NRA RSO course with my jaw open then entire time, I was in pure shock at some of the things this man was saying.

Glad you made it to Texas. :patriot:
