Mike McCarville tells the story of his recent shopping experience. Bending over to find light bulbs on the bottom shelf of a home improvement store last week, McCarville's shirt and jacket both slipped aside to briefly expose the Smith & Wesson that was holstered to his hip. A police officer who was providing security at the store approached him, and without calling any further attention to the firearm, asked to see McCarville's license. As McCarville is a concealed-carry permit holder, the exchange was brief and ended with a pleasant smile – and left McCarville thankful for the enlightened police officer.
