Been a while!
In any case, two interesting things of note.
Sunday, Dec 21, 2008: Went to Gamestop in People's Plaza to sell half of my DVD collection. While in line, a group of three teenage boys were gawking over my XD, pointing and admiring it. No one else noticed or seemed to care... In fact, the girl who was helping me (quite attractive, I must add), actually asked if she could buy one of my DVD's outside of the store (for more than the store would've bought it for). So, when we were done, she followed me outside, we exchanged quick pleasantries and I went on about my business.
Monday, Dec 21, 2008: I hit Autozone on Rt 40 to pick up some De-icer windshield wiper fluid. I got up to the cashier who looked at the gun... the conversation went like this.
Him: Whoa, whoa, whoa... What's that now? (genuine interest)
Me: Springfield XD 9mm.
Him: Cool! I just graduated -- a .25 to a .380.
We then went on to talk about local ranges... he said he was interested in getting a license, and I gave him some info. All in all, great encounter -- a guy behind me in line even piped up and offered a couple of stories.
Good weekend so far. Looking forward to tonight.
