Went out to eat with my Mom after church today. As always I had a pistol on me, on Sunday I carry a Polish P64 in a pocket holster (easier to hide and I dont want to get hugged by a church member and get made), today I had the pocket holster in my jacket pocket. Pulled into the parking lot of a local chicken place, and got ready to get out. About the time I get ready to open my door an older white Ford Taurus pulls up behind us and the driver and passenger both get out. (This effectively blocks us in) I look over at Mom just in time to see her get a look of absolute horror on her face and sink down in the seat. I asked her what was wrong and she said that the woman was one of the people she had convicted when she served on the jury a few years back. (Mom had been on the jury that sentenced her to 2 years on drug charges) As she told me this both the woman and a rough looking dude who I would assume was the boyfriend split up and started towards us. The guy was walking down my side of the truck while the woman was coming up Mom's side. Knowing we are in for the worst I reach inside my jacket pocket and get a good grip on my P64. Dude comes up to my window, has one hand in his pocket, and pecks on the glass, woman comes up to Mom's window and does the same. Never taking my right hand out of my pocket or off of my pistol I crack the window with my left hand and ask him what he wants. He says that they want to talk to my mother. By this time the woman has come to myside of the truck as well. So I crack the window about another inch and tell him to go ahead. By this time I'm gripping the pistol so hard that the checkering on the grips is literally hurting my hand. And I notice that Mom has found the 2D maglight I keep in the truck and now has it next to her leg. Well dude starts off with: "Didn't you sit on ****'s trial? Mom: "yes" Dude: "So you helped convict her?" Mom: "yes" Dude: "Well I've got something to say to you" Me On the verge of cramming my monstrous 9x18 :embarassed: in his face and ordering him to the ground) "I hope its something nice" Dude: "Calm down buddy, this aint what you think" Me: "I hope its not" Woman: "I just wanted to thank your mother" Mom: "What!?" Woman: "I just wanted to thank you, If you hadnt sent me off I would have probably been dead by now. And I met **** at the rehab center, and we are getting married." And with that, even before me or Mom could come up with something to say in reply, they turned around, got in their car and drove off. So boys and girls, always carry no matter what, always prepare for the worst - hope for the best and once in a while the best happens. And always, ALWAYS pay attention to whats going on around and ESPECIALLY behind you.
