To set the stage, last Friday was the 60th anniversary of my last surviving aunt and uncle.. To commemorate this, thier two sons reserved the banquet room at the carefree resort, and also negotiated excellent rates on rooms for the affair, which drew approx 80 people (i might..have known 70) in attendance for the event.. I'm a bit prejudice, but the A&E are wonderful people, and the event was a huge success.. except.. You see it coming...? i wont embellish the tale, it's not necessary.. So back to the except.. There was one woman, who my wife pointed out from the start was overdressed, and really acting bored.. One of those dressed for a Hollywood opening things. Had a "my shit don't stink" attitude that you could see with iron sights.. When i was introduced she said "oh yes, i remember you, and what a rude obnoxious teenager you were".. This threw me, as while i later turned out to have more rough edges than smooth, at that point in life, i was pretty well behaved.. Think its called fear, i knew if i acted up the old man would knock me into the next decade.. I asked my Aunt about this, and she explained that the woman was quite the legend in the family, and besides being wrong with her assessment of me (least at that time), had pretty well alienated all of them.. Family is pretty basic stock, vets, and Republicans.. Guess shes a retired English teacher and SERIOUS liberal democrat..

So were all standing around and she walks up to join us.. As they are mostly from Illinois i take the occasion to bring up CCW issues with one of the young guys who had asked me earlier about AZ going CCW for all.. The boy made me proud.. First thing out of his mouth is back to the CCW for all thing.. Sure enough she actually gasps.. says.. Your kidding.. ANYONE could have a weapon.. So i look sorta surprised, and say well sure.. Not much of a deal, most of us do now..

At this point her eyes get big and she does the obvious leap.. (I believe this is called gestalt recognition).. She says (im thinking come on, come on) "Your not carrying one NOW are you"...(BAM!! I've got her) I get that sorta half dismissive look you give to those who push the door when it says pull.. and say.. "No.. I'm not carrying one"...

"I'm carrying two"..

Absolute silence.. She says.. "I don't believe you".. My brother laughs and says.. "bub doesn't kid about this subject"..I turn to the younger guy, who's strong side, pull my jacket back and show him the airweight, and pull my little freedom arms out of the inside coat pocket.. Then as nonchalantly as i can, as im really stoked, i say to Brother "you carrying one or two".. He hits it on the money and says "no just the 9 tonight bub"..

Could have been a Hollywood opening, as he told me later he wasn't carrying anything... but getting back to the story, says "nope just the 9 wife's got her piece, and i didn't think it was necessary to have two".. She turned on her heal and left.. Don't know if she heard us laugh or not...60th anniversaries are GREAT..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

You may not have the best arsenal of correctly spelled words out there, but goddamn can you set up a story, old man.

great story Greg

I hate people who think they are so high and mighty and hate guns.

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall. If you don't stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!

My hat is off to you Sir. I always love when someone puts some gun snob in their place.

Great story, and great quick thinking. Just consider, tho - you absolutely made her day. Her opinion of you, and of all conservatives was confirmed for her. I'm sure she feels even more superior to all of us unwashed conservative, reactionary knuckledraggers.

So be it!

These "fucks" will never see us in any other light, just as our attitudes about them will never change.......It is kind of the natural order of things.
