We were lucky enough to sit in the front row with John D and Lady D, who had reserved seats for us. They are just the nicest people and we were so happy to meet them. I also met Brent Greer of The Ready Line, and many people from The Buckeye Firearms Association - I only wish we had more time to talk. We were offered two tickets to attend the U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance Foundation's "Save Our Heritage" Rally where John McCain would be speaking (via satellite) but decided against it, seeing how we weren't exactly dressed for a $60 a plate dinner and already had a 3 hour ride back to Willoughby.
Instead, we stopped at a gigantic Amish-style restaurant on the way home. The place was packed with Ohio Buckeye's fans. While we waited for our table, we wandered around the gift shop. And amidst the knickknacks, I found a full-length mirror. I stood in front of it and saw that although my pistol grip was covered (& printing like crazy), the muzzle of my pistol could clearly be seen hanging out the bottom of my shirt. "If someone actually noticed this, what would they think?" I wondered.
They probably wouldn't realize what they're seeing. A five foot tall woman, sniffing soy candles in a gift shop with a pistol on her hip. Incongruous. Doesn't compute. This might just be my secret weapon.
Anyway, more later - I'm off to Sunday** with my Mike. Bacon might be involved. Brain food, you know.
* I'm thinking of scanning them and making a Google Docs file to share, if possible (and if you think it might be something you'd read)
**use it as a verb, it makes sense)
