It should also be noted that you only ask someone if they are packing, but never, ever tell someone that you are "packing iron". Most people shouldn't answer 'yes' to the question, because that means you're either a gangster, gangsta, or wigger.
Italian Mafia 2: Yeah, I'm packin'. We gotta hit Valencio tonight. But choo' just fogetta'boutit.
Police 1: Hey, you! Drop that weapon and put your hands in the air!
Police 2: NOW!
Mafia 1&2: Shit!
