    Was it one of those glock-soccer-moms who believe in tupperware superiority?

    Great food for thought- because the knee jerk reaction is get upset, but as a number of places have said with 2A issues, screaming “shall not be infringed” in her face probably would be filed under “how not to win” (as Sebastian refers to it).

    The Stag Arms t-shirt that came with my AR has earned me some weird looks at the gym. I’m afraid that I’d say something like “I got it free with the 5000th round of ammunition I bought for mine!”, which is not “how to win”.

    Unfortunately, a lot of soccer moms have “The View”, “Ellen”, and other stupid television programming to spew propaganda during the day- oh, I mean “reasoned discourse”.

    Should I be worried about why you’re asking this question?

  3. Rustmeister Says:

    I’d click number 2, then call her a sheeple. πŸ˜›

  4. SayUncle Says:

    Bitter,

    Oh no, just a jaunt to the store on Sunday.

  5. countertop Says:

    Had a similar situation this summer at Trader Joes.

  6. Squeaky Wheel Says:

    D) Say, “I’m sorry you feel that way. Here’s my card. If you’d ever like to discuss this, I would be more than happy to, but right now I have a rabid raccoon in my attic that needs killin’.”

  7. ben Says:

    “needs killin'”, oh mercy πŸ™‚

  8. Rob Says:

    This poll doesn’t take all factors into account. Maybe she just works for HK.

  9. Squeaky Wheel Says:

    Well, I AM from Tennessee, Ben. πŸ™‚

  10. guy Says:

    I know calmly discussing the situation is the right way to win in the long term, but honestly, #1 has become my default answer to most unasked for commentary.

    Then again, I don’t own any type shirts.

  11. guy Says:

    whoops. comment system got confused by braces – make that “insert hot button topic of the day” type shirts

  12. Breda Says:

    I’d probably say something like, “Didn’t anyone ever teach you not to talk to strangers?”

    In fact…I think I may wear my Kalashnikitty shirt to the grocery store sometime.

  13. Kristopher Says:

    Take off the Glock shirt … revealing the “Vote from the Rooftops” t-shirt I was wearing beneath it.

  14. Bruce H. Says:

    I hope I’d have the presence of mind to say something like, “Thank you kindly, ma’am. That’s why I wear it.” In fact, I’d probably snarl and shy away from her.

  15. Sebastian Says:

    Address her concerns, as in, try to relieve her of her ignorance… then sure. If that didn’t work, then maybe option B… perhaps followed by a “Cold dead hands” or something like that πŸ˜‰

  16. mike hollihan Says:

    Option E: “Are you callin’ me out lady?”

    πŸ˜‰

  17. Matt Says:

    Ok, I’m going to have to order some provocative clothing. If I can get some dirty looks and occasional query in the heart of liberal Montgomery County, Maryland, it would be so worth it.

    Any recommendations beyond a nice Barrett t-shirt?

  18. straightarrow Says:

    I would most likely tell her, “That’s why I try not to talk to ignorant people, such as yourself. People like me are the reason you enjoy the freedom to express your opinion, perhaps you should consider that. I mean, if you get a lot smarter.”

    Not word for word, but close to what I have done. Not over a t-shirt, but a magazine.

  19. HerrBGone Says:

    Matt, I saw one at Kittery Trading Post that had a nice picture of a woodsy scene with a Buck in the foreground. What most people might not notice right away are the several hunters shown in silhouette way off in the background:

    ..I love Vegetarians!

    More venison fer Me!

  20. HerrBGone Says:

    EEK! Well, that didn’t work…

  21. Joe Huffman Says:

    My most frequently worn shirts are Boomershoot variations. I’ve never received anything but positive feedback on them.

    I always expect something negative about my Celebrate Diversity shirt but nothing has come of it yet. Maybe I’m just too scary to be confronted over something like that…

  22. Kevin Says:

    My Celebrate Diversity Shirt gets many comments, so far all positive. Now my Micky Marx and Micky Che’ shirts… they tend to upset the Collidge Edumakated kids working at the grocery store and as cashiers at Walmart!

  23. existingthing Says:

    I obviously enjoy firearms, and you obviously enjoy sticking your nose into other peoples’ business. Isn’t America great?

  24. Cactus Jack Says:

    You’re standing in line waiting to pay for your stuff when a soccer mom expresses her displeasure with your shirt that advertises your favorite weapon. What do you do?

    “I take it that you dont like Bushmaster rifles maam. So what’s your favorite vermin shooting rifle?”

    Seriously, my answers to libs, after living with lib neighbors for 11 years in Kalifornistan, is to tell them I don’t give a shit what they think. BTW, I classify libs as vermin.

    “Those who beat their swords into plowshares usually end up plowing for those who didn’t”

  25. Matt Says:

    Assuming they are lucky enough to be plowing at all. More often than not they wind up in the furrows rather then making them.

  26. HardCorps Says:

    countertop – I read your TJ’s story and it was pimp!

    I can’t believe 225 people read this blog too! (no insult intended it’s just that where I live it’s rare to see like minded people..)

  27. David Says:

    And, once again, I spew Diet Mountain Dew all over my laptop at the thought of screaming “Shall Not Be Infringed”. But, I know GOA types who would do that.

  28. Paul Says:

    Sure I’d discuss her displeasure with her. But I bet it would be like talking to a fence post. They just don’t understand as they have never had any real dealing with guns or self defense.
