We were at a local restaurant for lunch when my kids were younger (preteens) and I was starting to get into the carry lifestyle. A police officer came in and one of my kids loudly said, “You should ask him what gun he carries!” I turned all sorts of red!
It led to a great conversation with the police officer about the gun and taser on his utility belt and what he prefers to carry off duty. The kids learned a lot and asked good questions.
Another great conversation with a police officer was while we were at an event in San Francisco where the officers there for crowd control and they all had an assortment of gear and guns. @Heather and I were debating what gun the officer closest to us was carrying. We came to a consensus and asked if we were right. We were - and he was very impressed. Evidently, not a lot of women openly discuss firearms in San Francisco.
What great/entertaining conversations have you had with the police about firearms?
