  • 2 questions?

    So last night, I'm driving home from work and my fuel light comes on. I get off the parkway about a mile or so from my house, and stop into a local gas station/convenience store. It's about 8 pm, and not in a bad neighborhood or anything, in fact I frequent this place often. I walk in say hello to the husband & wife who run the store. They know me well enough, they know what I do for a living, even though I try to keep a low profile they have seen me in uniform a time or two. I go back to to the cooler, grab a cold pop and walk up the the register to pay. At this point a woman enters the store. Judging by her looks, I would say a frequent flyer with the local cops, but becuse I don't work here I can't say for sure. She cuts in front of me and starts babbling about having no money, and asking for cigarettes, beer and blunt wrappers. When the clerks told her to leave, she tried to reach over the counter and grab them.

    Now at this point, Im thinking, "great, just what I want, I just spent 12 hours with these people and my wife's homemade chili is getting cold", but the look on the clerks faces was like "please don't leave us with this lunatic".

    So I put my tallboy down on the coffee bar, and say "hey, GTF outta here!" Which prompts this lady to turn around, and square off on me. Now, the first thing I see is this lady is huge. Im a 6'1", 200 pounder. This chick would've cleaned my clock! I am talking Amazonian. Second, she had a beautiful metalic gold ring of spray paint around her nose and mouth. Im thinking "this huffer is going to make me late for dinner", and I'm not happy.

    Her eyes are all bugged out and she says "you a cop?" And I reply "yup, now GTF outta here!" And she did.

    If she wanted to roll me, it would've been bad. It also got me thinking about my normal carry for too/from work: my S&W 642. I was sure glad it was on my side. The guys make fun of my revolver, in the locker room. But at that range, drawing from under my sweatshirt..... Solid performer.
    *********

    So my questions:
    1. Are people really still huffing? Really? I'm talking a 45 year old woman. Crack, heroin, Spice are all cheap here and you want to huff paint?

    2. Integrity check: who is still not carrying off duty?

    1. Yep people are still huffing out my way

    2. Lots of revolvers being carried off duty here

      1. Not as prevalent here, lots of Heroin going around, tho.

      2. I usually keep my piece in the truck, not on me, still haven't found the ideal way to carry.
      The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

      I Am the Sheepdog.

        You better figure it out and wear that piece.

        What do you have? And what kind of holster are you using?

          1. Yes, all the above...

          2. Revolver not so much...

            Huffing isn't common, but you still run into them out here in LA

            I carry everywhere.....either my SW Shield, or (in 'colder' weather..such as it exists in LA) my MP9c with a full size mag....both weapons are carried with at least one spare mag as well

              We don't see a lot of huffing around here. Crackheads, junkies, wet-heads, coke-heads, spicers... we have 'em. This doesn't even include the drunks and potheads,........ But huffers? We don't see it much.

                Well, even the huffers we do see, we don't see them for very long....that is more of a 'self cleaning oven' than even heroin !

                  1. Not many huffers, but when I was living around Kansas City, it was common enough I'd see a couple a week.

                  2. G22, FNP 40, or my commander 1911. They way I figure, if I can, then do.

                    If I encounter a huffer it's canned air not paint.

                        The crockpot is the teaching of a 20+ year man.
