Que paso amigo?

Brush up on your espanol and be nice.

Just act cool and like you don't care what their doing. Don't stare. Most thugs aren't gonna attack if you mind your own business. Speak if your spoken to, appear friendly. It's mostly about respect with alot of gang bangers.

"an armed society is a polite society."


the nice thing about the concealed carry is that it takes the gray out of carring a weapon. have been told that it is comforting not comfortable.

Call in any people whom you feel are acting in a questionable manner. A police car sliding by will increase their level of discomfort. Let your neighbors know what you saw. Make an issue of unacceptable behavior. The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

True that! Carrying a gun has forced me to watch my attitude and actions even more. I have to ensure that I give no cause for a fight.

For the OP, I'm glad nothing went down. I've had 2 situations in my city where I've had to reach in the direction of my handgun at night b/c someone was walking way too quickly towards me (didn't pull b/c the "offender" quickly backed away). Every bad guy knows what it means when you adopt a fighting position and have your hand at 4 o'clock.
