What, is this forums opinion and what would be the correct way to handle this situation:

After all of these years - this has never happened to me:

I was setting in a coffee shop, this morning reading the paper and enjoying a cup of coffee. (just for clarification, I had on shorts, flip flops and a Tommy Bahama shirt) Dressed pretty darn nice for a 75 degree morning in the south.

There were several people doing the same thing and afew standing at the counter ordering, to go. This shop is somewhat remote - not connected to a mall. The owner is a personal friend of mine who lives 2 doors down the street from me.

As I sat there reading I guess I had my elbows on the table holding the paper and suppose my 1911 was printing, somewhat, through my shirt. (I carry at 4 o'clock). I am always aware of any situation where I might print and try to avoid the possibility. Anyway,

A rather large guy who I think was setting with several other guys at a near by table, (short hair, high and tight, - Marine Corp kinda guy, ex Marine myself) walked up and said, excuse me but are you a Law Enforcement Officer ?

I turned and said - excuse me. He again said, are you a Law Enforcement Officer ? I said no - why do you ask ? He said I think I can see the imprint of your gun and if your are not in Law Enforcement I would like to see your "carry permit".

My comment was: Are you in Law Enforcement ? He said no but I would still like to see your "carry permit".

I kinda looked up and smiled (to me it was really no big deal) and said, sir, I am carrying a concealed weapon and have done so for almost 40 years now. And I assure you, I am authorized to carry this weapon.

I don't know if he was showing off for his buddies or if he was just being an ass. But by now several people in the coffee shop was listening to what was going on.

He again said, I would like to see your "carry permit". I said, sir, with all due respect - you are not authorized to request that information.

He, very abruptly said: well then I'll call the police. I said, sir, that's fine with me but I assure you that I am authorized to carry. By this time the customers, in the coffee shop, was paying no attention to our discussion, whatsoever. The guy turned and returned to his table where his buddies were waiting. I could hear several whispers but really couldn't make them out.

To my knowledge, no calls were ever made and nothing else happened.

I finished my coffee and paper ( about 10 minutes), got up and left.

I didn't want to be a butt about this situation but there are alot of situations where one would carry a gun and not be an LEO.

What would you have done ????

good show


my reply - NO, NO, NO have a nice day

unless the person requesting was a LEO or ATF, CIA, FBI, NASA and presented ID verification NO ONE is looking at my permit and definately not my weapon

end of story

go fly a kite



on a seperate note - since i have been too lazy to ship my g27 to glock i have been carring my 229 and i honestly believe that its more concealable!

i wonder why? maybe because its not as blocky?

before anyone asks - same holster, same carry position - shorts, t-shirt and flip flops!

I'd smile, wish the man a good day, get up and leave heading immediately to a po-po if available or to my car.
From my car dial the police non emergency number and tell them what has gone down as a pre-emption against the crazy man & his buddies calling the cops on me.
