    A supermarket needs security guards?

    I'm glad I live where I live, in Pennsylvania (where there are nearly 600,000 people, that's one out of every twenty-three Pennsylvanians, licensed to carry concealed).

    I lived in VA for a few years (10) and worked as a Loss Prevention associate for a LARGE discount store to make ends meet. Yes I carried and No I wasn't supposed to. The store had no posted signs for guns and VA is an "open carry" state.

    Now, a gentleman and his wife who I'd seen several times around town carrying his 1911 open came into our store and I knew it before anyone. I gave him a nod and went on about my business until a few minutes later when the secret codes started coming over the P.A. speakers. I radio the store GM and ask what the fuss is and he stated there was an armed man "looking suspicious" in the clothing section.

    My armed pal was not "looking" like anything. He was shopping and I was met by the entire store managment staff and several cashiers while I was hiding and observing the "suspect". I explained to the GM that he is within his rights and I can't/shouldn't/don't want to ask him to leave. I told them they should all feel safer with him here and reasoned that if he was a BG, he would be doing BG stuff. Not shopping for a flannel shirt.

    The "perp" was non the wiser of the panic he caused until I followed him outside where we shot the bull till we got to his truck. I then explained what had occured and that the GM was a sensible man and an easy convert to my thoughts about carrying. We had a chuckle and he showed me his CCP and said he would cover her up next time. He just liked to keep the real BGs guessing.

    Sorry to hear about your nasty encounter. Education is key and it sucks your encounter was with an Egg-No-Ra-Muss.

    yes let us all take a minute to slowly shake our heads in thought of the uneducated people who actually think this is a reality.

    We had a hold up in a store here in Ft. Worth. A lady shopping called her husband on the cell. He was waiting in the car out side. He came in, confronted the robbers and managed to shoot one as they fled the store. The wonded BG was captured at the hospital later. The man was not charged.
