Yep. Sure did. Near the veggie section.

Sir Googles, while he may have enjoyed the light frisk and ankle taps, judging by how flushed he got, he knew he had just been served.
Without visual clarification I can only speculate your attire, demeanor, and location of the search added to his "reaction". Hunting for cucumbers were you?

On cool rainy days down here, I'd meet my gf/ex in the veggie section, well twice. She wearing nothing but a trench/raincoat and ... we would.....well "choose the right" veggies. That veggie section is a very erotic part of a grocery store for women.

Negative! Puhllllease!

I was proving a point!
He very well could have one of more of your ultra nifty knives. And while you are frisking him you'd be in range of his knife, and the point of having a gun would be mute. At close range you might be at a disadvantage w/ a pistoli unless you are super fast on the draw, and employ CAR type shooting techniques. Because at short range small changes in your targets position = large changes in attack vector (polar moment issues come to mind at well as getting blocked or attacked by an adversary in melee. Distance and tempo are critical

Always makes you wonder about search procedures used by security. IMO if someone isn't on the ground w/ cuffs on their hands behind them and on their ankles w/ a hannibal lecter mask (and even then) I'd consider that range proximity to be extremely dangerous. At least w/ a little standoff or standing behind them you buy enough time to react?

Just a thought.

Btw, those are knives really neat, might get one for my jacket collar [thumbsup]

At Thorndon New World supermarket, if you turn your bannanas upside down in your trolley it means you're wanting to pick someone up.

Useful trivia if anyone gets caught behind the lines.
