So... It was time to make dinner. Nachos. And nachos gotta have cheese. Lots of it. I saw an opportunity to jump on the bike to run down to the local Fred Meyer. So on go my full black textile pants with full pads. On went my black leather boots. This time I thought I would just wear my Ladies Icon Stryker vest over a standard tight fitting black warm up hoodie. Slap on my black reinforced gloves and grab my helmet. While strolling through Freddy's I caught a reflection as I approached the milk isle and I instantly thought "OH SHIT... Some open carry hero's going to think I'm in riot gear and shoot me!" As logical as I could be I kept on shopping and kept from looking for the nearest cover. But I couldn't help but think that with the recent movie theater disaster maybe strolling around unsuspecting on lookers while in my gear may not be a good idea. Maybe its my inner squid trying to rationalize a reason to return to my scooter days of a cargo skirt, cami and some flip flops. Or maybe there may be something to my apprehension. Those of us that religiously follow ATGATT have all felt out of place at times in our full gear, but this was different. Anyone else ever feel a little too much attention while sticking out like a sore thumb?
