Encounter with a STUPID CH licensee.

Postby Brian D. » Wed Sep 04, 2019 2:11 pm

Today found me at the cigar store downtown. A sixty something customer at the counter reached in his front pocket for cash...which he carries in the same pocket as has handgun. So of course he removed the little blaster and placed it on the counter, muzzling the clerk's midsection. He made his purchase and returned the gun to his pocket.

Casually as possible, I engaged him in conversation about all that, after a hello and handshake. I won't go into the details, it's just frustrating as all get out to think of him as "one of us".

He's an unteachable idiot. Hopefully if (when) the negligent discharge occurs, it will be into his own leg rather than someone else's torso.
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!

And before anyone asks, hell no, he didn't have that cheap little gun in a pocket liner rig.

That is all bad. Brandishing, muzzling, no holster, multiple items in the pocket...laws broken and no common sense.

Luckily for those around him, the trigger is usually inadvertently pulled when someone like that is digging around in the pocket or trying to pull it out, and the other items get caught in the trigger. Kind of bright spot in a sad story.

PS Maybe we are lucky he is one of those than carries with an empty chamber? Two wrongs do make right in that case.

We could be that lucky. Thought about asking him that but figured he'd fish out the gun to show me yea or nay, rather than just verbally respond.

Mr. Stupid is lucky the clerk behind the counter didn't pull out a gun and shoot his butt.

I talked to the employee later. He knows this customer and has seen that act before, apparently. Mr. Stupid is a cabbie/Uber driver, so I understand why he carries. I just virulently disagree with HOW he carries.

Yeah, I realize that Uber would fire the dude, if they knew. Maybe the taxi company too.

Lot of stupidity at play here. Like watching a Democrat POTUS candidates debate, sorta.
