At approximately 7:03p, a man, dressed in black and carrying a loaded handgun, walked into a shopping center. He was not alone. There were three others with him. Being Christmas time, the shopping center was packed with harried shoppers and exhausted employees.

Based on eyewitness reports, the group made its way directly to a particular store. They walked into the packed store, and split up. Three grabbed some clothes, while the gunman stood by the door, keeping an eye on the lines at the registers.

At the appropriate time, the gunman gave a signal and they all approached the closest cashier. The cashier never saw the gun.

Actually, neither did anyone else. I was carrying concealed. We got our shopping done, stopped by the bookstore and then escaped home.

Well, whaddya know?!? A man with a gun walks into a store, and the only thing hurt was his wallet.

Yep, concealed FOR A REASON! :-)

If the cashier(s) knew you were carrying, it wouldn't be "concealed." I go out every day the same way, and no one's the wiser.

Like Old NFO said, that's for a reason.
