Plumbnut, frankly I'm getting tired of you twisting everybody's words.
I don't care if he put it in his pocket assuming he had a license. I wanted a gun then because he stared at us angrily and returned to his car to get something. I've been raised to read body language and they were some strong signals he was throwing off. I wish I had had a gun in case he had pulled and and started shooting or making demands. If not there would be no problem. That is all I was saying and I don't think your reading into it makes the situation any more helpful for anybody.
