I enjoyed bringing my sister, Miriam, to and from her apartment in New Orleans. There was never a dull moment in the journey or the pickup. For the most part, I drove my Nissan 240SX and carried a 9mm Colt All American 2000 in a shoulder holster.
I would find a place to park and then walk to her apartment on Dauphine, across from Matassa's Market. I always open carried arms and never came to grief for it. I only ever got lip once from a man seeing me walking with a rifle, in the French Quarter, on the way from Miriam's to my car. He asked me who I was looking to shoot. Well, there were other interesting moments but I will relate them at another time.
