Ran into a guy at Big Lots where I was looking for some of their sale items.
Looking for dog toys for Sierra the Dog and toilet paper for the ranch, squatting to the lowest shelf
Older guy comes up
"I know you..."
I looked up quizzically
"Yeah?" (immediately cocked)
He wore a veterans cap ... USS something or other.
"You do the firearms thing, right?"
"What's the best thing to do?"
I looked left and right to see if anyone was nearby .... none.
I said, "Be armed, think strategically. If that fails, tactically."
He slapped me on the shoulder as I squatted still looking for Sierra the Dog toys.
"Good!" he said.
"Not bad for a kid!" and he ambled off.
