So I've been working as a police officer (well a glorified ride along..)for about 2 months... and today I got my first feeling like someone was trying to get me lol I half way feel paranoid.
My "partner" wanted to look for a new case for his phone so we went to the Sprint store. We were in there a while when this typical looking dirt bag (yes profiling.. bite me) walks up close to me - on my gun side. I only have a .. well maybe stage 2 holster. Little finger button and then the "retention" holding my gun in.. so I always have it covered with my arm.
So I move away from dude.. it didn't work he comes again. I turn around so at least he's not on my gun side - he then walks around the display so he's on my gun side again. It was like I couldn't get him away from me or my gun side!!
Thankfully we left before he could get any closer. He went back to the front of the store when we did so.
Do I really think dude was trying to get to my gun? Not really... but it was still a thought in my head that I just didn't like. The guy i'm riding with just shot and killed a guy a few months ago so I felt like I had good backup! hah BUT i'd be highly.. highly pissed if someone attempted to touch my weapon!
Should I get use to that little voice inside my head that feels uneasy about these things? Maybe I would have felt better if I had my gun belt on with the very cool puzzle like holster on lol
