As I said before I would never joke with an actual gun
You shouldn't joke with toy guns either.
Just this morning, on one of my gun owner's forums, there was a post from a man who'd had a car full of teenagers squeal to a stop in front of him, blocking the road, and one of them jumped out with a gun in his hand, racking the slide. The guy, being a CCW holder, pulled his gun, took cover from behind his jeep, informed them he was armed and calling 911, and ordered them to drop the weapon. The kid freaked, dropped the gun and they took off. When the cops got there, they found out it was a toy (airsoft), that'd had the orange parts covered with a sharpie. The kid damned near got shot. When the cops caught them, the kids said, "Did you catch the crazy guy who pointed a gun at us?" The cops explained to them what a CCW was and that if the guy had shot one of them and killed them he'd have been perfectly justified.
My guns are not for use in silly intimidation games. I wouldn't bother to *disarm* before a meeting with the elders but I wouldn't be brandishing either. I certainly wouldn't wear a fake gun, just to try and scare them or make myself feel big. That's just juvenile. Anyone who'd do that doesn't have any business carrying a real one. In fact. I wouldn't bother to be meeting with the elders.
Once more, with feeling, just in case anybody isn't getting the picture of how real, grown up, responsible gun owners act, and how they feel about juvenile people, who get a hard-on at the thought of scaring people with a gun, suggest stupid things:
Take the conceal carry class and pay real close attention. If you display the weapon to intimidate and the police are called, you will be the one in trouble. At the very least you will lose your carry permit. I have a carry permit and I ask you not to do this. Your tactic could be used as ammo by the anti-permit people if they find out about it and it would be justified. If you have any doubt that I am correct, ask your conceal carry instructor and be ready for a good ass chewing. A better idea might be for you to just take the class, but don't purchase the weapon until you lose the cavalier attitude. The only time I would consider showing my weapon would be if I felt my life was in imminent danger, not because some "janitors in suits" want to talk to me. If you feel so strongly about not having these people in your house don't let them in. Its really not that complicated.
