.... or something like that. Anyhow. Always carry to stores, malls, etc. Seems the safest thing to do these days. Wife and I are loading massive groceries into the trunk of my car and I hear multiple voices in the area. Teens, talking like teens talk, to each other. One drops an F bomb to the other and my wife looks at them and says "nice mouth". I look up around the lid of the trunk to see who she just confronted and it's three rather large youngsters. They look at her, and say nothing, and keep on walking. Best possible outcome. Only after the fact, did I notice: When I looked up, my left hand dropped the milk into the trunk and became free. My right hand, which was already empty had moved to pull my jacket away from my side, like was putting my hand in my pants pocket. I didn't pull the jacket aside, but my hand was gripping it and could've. I've practice drawing with this coat on hundreds of times. I was only a thought away from being ready to move. Now - just so you don't think I'm a hot head, I'm not! But, after I replayed the event over a few times, I was surprised by my confidence. In the past, before carrying, when my wife took on the role of F-bomb patrol, I must admit I was a bit nervous especially if the target was big and/or multiple. My confidence didn't take me to action, but it take me to readiness. The easy answer is, tell your wife to shut up. On the other hand, I believe more adults standing up the bad behavior is what we need today. And besides, my wife won't shut up - I've tried already in some extreme instances. I'm sharing this because it was a first for me. I have no doubt I would have retreated had they said something back, and tried to diffuse the situation. It was just a strange feeling and reaction. Any one else get that way after carrying for a bit?
