    overreaction?

    So, while standing in line at a local eatery to pick up my called in order, I noticed that the guy in front of me was OC. I cocked my head to the side a little and was admiring his piece. .45 colt was all i could make out before he spun around, hand rested on the grip and spit out "the **** you lookin at boy?"
    Looked me up and down, grabbed his bag of food, and left.

    first, i was standing 3 feet back from him
    second, i'm 6'2" 300
    third, i'm 37 with a scraggly beard (i hate shaving) so "boy" isn't really a term I would apply to myself.

    did i break some unspoken rule of open carry etiquette? I wasn't standing on top of the guy. I wasn't threatening in any way. I wasn't reaching to touch his big freakin revolver. I was simply looking, from a respectable distance, at the gun hanging off his belt.

    Sounds like the wrong kind of people that need to be OCing or carrying at all. To me just sounds like some punk a$$ that is carrying because he thinks it makes him look like a bada$$ and not for the right reasons. I see that you did nothing wrong.

    I would have just told him I was admiring his .45

    oh, believe me, I would have. I wasn't really given the time. Was also kinda shocked at the reaction, so I was tongue tied for a few. The girl behind the register asked me what his problem was. I just shrugged.

    Sounds like the guy was just an *******.

    LP, while i'm sure that would have been hysterical on my part, the jackwagon with the chip on his shoulder probably would have decked me.

    He overreacted. Perhaps a simple explanation of exactly what you were looking at was in order. I'll leave it to you to make that determination.
