    Grandma couldn't quite grasp the concept

    My grandmother (in law?) is visiting us from California for a few weeks, and yesterday at Walmart, while I OC'd, she asked me if I ever carried my gun loaded. The obvious answer was followed up by her saying, "But not in public, I don't want you to get into trouble." To which I had to explain, not once, but twice that in Wisconsin, we have constitutional carry and it requires no permit and we have no registry system, and that 1 in about 3 people you see here is armed. She also didn't even notice the .40 and .22 on my belt, one at 3:00 and the other at 5:00. And I had to explain it 3 times because she is so indoctrinated. I didn't know it was that bad. But it turns out that she is pro-2a and had moved to California in the 70s, so she didn't know that there had been changes to firearm law anywhere besides the negative changes in CT, CA and NY. WTF is in the water? Seriously, Feinstein might be getting medication put into the water. Grandma grew up in the boonies in WI. She shoulda known.

    I should also add that she bought me a box of .40 for a late birthday present. Wonder how she knew what to get me? Lol

    When I dress in the morning, the question I get asked is , shirt in or out today? Just depends on where I am going, and how I feel. LOL most days, I open carry, EXCEPT the days I go to Texas, and then it is cover up day. ;-)
    I am old and slow, BUT dead on with my aim!!

    Lol if i choose not to OC or it gets covered by my shirt my wife will sometimes ask "where is it?" While we are out. You'd think shed learn because i always just give her a creepy smile. Sometimes I conceal it just to watch her bump into me and try to find it. Then it's "cold....colder....hot....cold....."

    Good for her. Bet that's a rarity.
    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?
