How to parry questions about your CCW.

ZeeZee Senior MemberPosts: 27,464 Senior Member
So, I'm sitting at a restaurant eating diner alone tonight when a lady eating alone next to me apparently decided to strike up a conversation.

She asks, "Where do you work? I see you're wearing your tool belt." (Referring to my Maxpedition Octa around my waist.)

I replied, "Oh Miss, that's not a tool belt. That's my Man Sack."

"You're what?!"

"My Man Sack. You know, my purse. Very Metro Sexual of me, don't you think?"

"What do you carry in it?"

"My makeup."

She laughed and turned away. I went back to my meal.

Nothing more was said between us. I guess she wasn't interested in my Man Sack anymore. Works for me.

    I figured you'd be proud that I used a phrase coined on this forum in a conversation with a stranger in public!








    And I didn't get slapped!

    Ok, another.

    You should've followed up the man sack answer with the question, "Wanna see my gun?"

    Usually I get blank stares and looks of concern when I use lingo from here in the real world. People I work with still don't know what a jelled hair, cheeto munchin nancy boy is....

    What's this thread about and where is it going?:uhm:
  • ZeeZee Senior Member Posts: 27,464 Senior Member
    A lady asked about my concealment method and instead of stalling and stammering trying to explain what it was.......I changed the subject. Therefore, didn't cause fear and concern about the fact that I had a gun.

    I saw that part but the rest was getting kinky.

    Well, I guess I could have said it was my colostomy bag. Think that would have worked?

    That woman was hitting on you, probably thought you were gay after you said there was make-up in your mansack. If you had been wearing your Savage hat, she probably would have bought you a beer:jester:.

    I know she was hitting on me. I'm happily married an figured I better find a creative way to end that conversation.

    If I'd been wearing a Savage hat, shed have KNOWN I was gay and would have never started the conversation.

    Nope, man sack was the perfect choice. Although, I mean saying it out loud here? In front of these guys?

    Yah, I know, nicely done, I just needed a way to work the Savage hat comment in there.

    I see people wearing those things down here all the time and they're usually also wearing white knee socks and sandals along with a t-shirt from a local restaurant.

    Oh GREAT!!! Another thread I'm going to hae to check on every 5 minutes...

    C'mon Wambli - respect the 'sack!:tooth:

    In a probably futile effort to bring the thread back to seriousness, the fact that attention was called to your mode of carry in the first place ought to tell you something. Guys don't carry purses. I.T. geeks might carry briefcases, and they generally look like I.T. geeks. Fanny packs are worn by time travelers from the 1980's, overweight Walmartians, the occasional jogger, and people carrying guns.

    Might want to rethink your carry options. It shouldn't be a point of conversation AT ALL.

    Having a 30" waist, I don't have a lot of realistate to conceal a gun I feel comfortable carrying. I will not compromise my carry gun, so no mouse guns for me.

    About the only way for me to truly conceal is with a large button up shirt untucked. But, even with that, any twisting, turning, bending, or sitting and I will print. In the past, I've even used an ankle holster with jeans and t-shirt are order of the day. It works and I got pretty quick with presentation.

    Unless I am dressing up where the buttoned shirt is practical, I've relegated myself to the grab nd go of the Man Sack. It is easier to explain, actually draws less attention than the butt of my gun bulging through my shirt, and frankly...........I don't care anymore.

    The Octa is quick, easy, allows me to carry what I want to carry, with all the accessories I want to carry, quick to present from, and 'conceals' my weapon.

    Will somebody suspect I have a gun? Maybe. But, so what.
