Some people have little common sense. So I am at a BBQ for Labor Day and a friend of my dads was talking about carrying concealed because I was saying how I just got my permit last week. And he replies with "I carried for years and then decided to stop because it was boring. Nothing ever happened." I'm like I don't expect anything to happen. Your lucky if nothing "ever happens". Sorry for the rant. What stupid things have you guys heard from permit holders?

That is going to hard to top.


Sort of like saying "Yeah, my wife quit taking birth control pills. We been married 10 years, and she never got pregnant."


However, it is important that you recognize someone that is THAT mush headed so that you can stay away from them.

I have been paying for life insurance for years and haven't needed it yet.

Some people should have "MORON" tattoo's on their forehead

I agree it wasn't a very appropriate comment, but, then again, why would you be telling people you just got your conceal carry license? Concealed means concealed in all sense of the word. good luck

Questions
 
The dumb thing that always leaves me awestruck - or gobsmacked if preferred - is "Is it loaded?" Second in goofiness and first in tackiness is "Have you shot anyone?" ('Not lately' is my typical answer.)

No, I do not routinely announce to all and sundry I carry, but since I was a lawman for a number of years, it isn't all that odd to assume - at least that I did when I was working. And sometimes the subject comes up with the question of Second Amendment rights.

To Malan35; yes, that is pretty stupid reasoning. Shows only a superficial level of analysis.

I am not telling "people", but a close group of friends at a family BBQ. I have told very few people not interested in everyone knowing my personal business lol.
