We don't normally wear armor, other than stab resistant, but I wear a IIIA vest every time I go to qualification.
I used to shop at the SW in Marana, nice place, nice people. When I worked at the indoor range/gunshop, I did occasionally have to remind some "customers" that the dangerous end needed to be NOT pointed at any other people or pets in my store. I was usually listened too, perhaps because the gun I was wearing was loaded as opposed to the one they were waving, or perhaps because I can be very persuasive when I want to be.

Good for you, Jay! It just goes to show you that you should always have backup if you can get it. There is no substitute for another person who will step up, armed or no, to defend you.
