I gotcha on that. The point I'm making is, what if the guy had been upset at your mentioning that, what if he'd been rabidly anti-gun, or even just simply misinterpreted what you meant? What I'm saying, is he could've said to security that you DID have a gun.

I'm not knocking what you did at all, I'm just posing hypothetical, "what-if's".

I told him I would walk out of the store before I freely gave that information. After a somewhat heated discussion, he got the manager, who was more than happy to NOT require us to give out that information. (we spent $300 on two pillows)

When the transaction was completed, the salesman (jokingly) said all he needed was a blood sample, and we could leave with the pillows. My reply (jokingly) was that he should be careful because my wife and I both had concealed carry permits. I did not say we were packing, just that we had permits. I live in Missouri. I started to wonder if stating that you had a CCW would be similar to brandishing a weapon. Any thoughts?

Personally I would have asked for the manager again, cancelled the transaction and walked out. Actually I would have walked out earlier before the transaction had been completed. I do not tolerate high pressure sales tactics at all. I honestly don't see the logic in mentioning the permits at all. And seriously, $300 for pillows? I looked just now and online they are $100 each (! $100 for a freaking pillow?)

Yeah my pillow cost 5 bucks at walmart. I've used a temperpedic before, and they're the nicest ones out there as far as I know, but I don't have one because of the price.

OP, I salute your refined tastes and your means to get what you want!
