Fourth Congressional Candidate Mia Love got a laugh from her fellow Utah Republicans Tuesday when she told a story of a visit to a cell phone store recently when a man came in with a pistol on his side.

"I was staring at it looking and he looked at me and puffed up his chest and said does this make you uncomfortable?

Love said it didn't and asked him: "Is that a Glock?" He said it was. "A 26," she asked? Yeah. "Nine-millimeter?" He said it was.

"Great gun for a woman. That's exactly what I carry."
