    Soooo
    I'm working an off duty gig at a club Friday night I stand outside the club area on a staircase where all must pass me so I get a good look at potential troublemakers, and have a talk with them.

    So I see a guy coming in with Dewchy untucked affliction shirt and the ILS in full force *Strike One* (Imaginary Lat Syndrome) he stops and holds up traffic on the stairs and asks if we are hiring *strike two*
    I quickly explain our test process and get his life story, been to Ag'staan corection officer in WV....... I notice him blading away and a bulge that looks like an Iphone under his shirt, not very large, he goes down the Stairs .

    Fast forward 4 minutes I see him walking around on the Patio area with the shirt pulled up and over his small Kahr 9mm in a really crappy nylon holser:upeyes::upeyes::upeyes:..

    I motion to a manager that this Dewch" was wearing a gun Girl at door confirmed he used military ID, (tried to get a break on the cover charge) and asked if they wanted him in with it, because it is technically a resturaunt he is allowed, but for all purposes after 9pm the place turns into a bar...

    So I have the guy working the Patio go over with the manager and tell him to put the gun in the car. *normally strike three but we'll call it a foul ball*

    As he walks by me up the stairs he says "I guess they don't trust military" I said , NOPE they trust me, and I stay sober.....

    So he secures his pistola and slinks back in with a crowd and have him pull his shirt up (just to be sure).
    No ankle holster either...

    two hours later main bar yells up for me...Guess WHooooo.

    Thats right the open carry poster boy is gonna (kick Some guys AZZ) for disrespection his girlfriends sister..*STEEEERIKE THREE*

    As I try to sort it out he gets all bowed up and starts running is mouth ILS goes into full spread....

    I grab shoulder and tell him, "you have to leave now" he looks at me with big old wild eyes and said... "Sir isn't that a little agressive"..
    I gave a little laugh and siad Nooo but you're getting ready to see agressive if you don't Unbow, shut your mouth and hit the stairs..

    Spent about 10 minutes with his party in the parking lot later keeping the parties seperated and he shares the fact that he like to open carry so people don't mess with him......Yup This is the guy that will ruin it for many.

    I was wondering about the ILS too. Now that I understand, I can say I have seen that a lot. It is usually the scrawney guys doing it. Seems they often want to bow up to a full grown guy like me to show how 'tough' they are. Never works out good for them. ILS haha. Kind of like the banty rooster complex.

    I usually see it with fat guys who are trying to look like they are big from working out.

    Think Chris Farley in Tommy Boy... "Which way to the weight room?"

    yes you do, unfortunatley this guy is more the norm than not... Tell me why would you go in a BAR with a concealed weapon the UNCONCEAL it..
    I will tell you why to be noticed..

    if this does not fit you I am happy.. But it fits about 60% of the Ocers I run into and I am sorry to say it, the "Will" cause problems for the movement..

    It's all about context seems you want to THINK you know something about my feeling based on an idiots actions.


    Like it or not the Idiots that Open Carry will be what most people base opinions on becasue they will call attention to themselves..

    You nailed it perfectly.

    I used to see it all the time when I worked off duty at a couple of night clubs. It seemed like a good gig at first, but after dealing with the fictitious tough, the stupid, and the altered state of limited consciousness, it got to be drudgery quick.

    Hormones and alcohol are a Taser's best friends.

    ILS...lmao! I never could get a name for those fools.

    On a side note, GTFO of that bar quick. No matter the money, no good comes from places like that.

    I'm guessing Leonard took a night off the AR pistol and chest rig mag pouch, huh?

    Gotta love people that do it for no other reason than to call attention to themselves. Dewchy indeed.
