A clerk at the BP gas station on Colorado Avenue in Avon became concerned enough on New Year’s Eve to rack a round into his 380 pistol to let two men know he was carrying.
The problem started at 11:45 p.m. on Dec. 31 when the clerk said two young men were trying to buy beer by showing a temporary permit as proof of age.
One of the young met briefly argued with the clerk and left, but soon returned and again began arguing over the validity of the man’s permit.
The clerk, feeling threatened, took his 380 pistol out of his pocket, racked a round, and then put it back in his pocket.
He later told police he did this to let the two men know he was carrying a concealed weapon.
Avon police advised the three men before leaving. The clerk had a valid CCW permit. No charges were brought against any of the men.
