There's an Exxon station a few miles from here. I stopped there one afternoon to put gas in my truck, and was watching one of the "locals" stalk me. He stepped off of the sidewalk of one of the stores, and walked over to the pump island behind the one I was using - a good 20-30' from me - and then stood there for a while. Maybe 30 seconds or so. I watched him the entire time from behind my glasses and my tinted windows.
I reached in and got my pistol and chambered a round, and sat there in the door of my truck, while my gas was pumping. (Never showed the gun, but I suspect he might have heard the slide rack.)
As I was sitting there (in my gray camo) he apparently decided he didn't want any of what I had in store, so he wandered back over to his car, jumped in, and hauled ass out of the parking lot.
I have always carried with one in the chamber, ever since then.
