I feel ya man. I know several gun owners at work that really don't know their ass from a hole in the ground about firearms and/or firearms laws.


Somebody said to me today that he's going to be able to buy a, and I quote, "pistol grip automatic weapon" now that the ban is gone. He had no clue at all what the ban was, or what it did and did not do. I explained it very carefuly to him and he agreed that it was all a steaming pile of worthless horse shit.

Had one guy go on about how if you shoot somebody with a shotgun it'll send him flying a few feet. I couldn't help but laugh in his face.

One guy at work asked if I was going to rush out and buy an automatic rifle.

Ignorance is bliss...for the ingnorant.

Same here.
I ran into someone at the gunstore the other week who didnt know anything about the ban.

You guys must live in sucky areas; every gunstore I've called has known and been enthusiastic about the ban expiring, even the ones I called monday.

(yeah, yeah, I know, lighten up, Francis)

I don't blame some people cause the antis have purposly made that shit so confusing you have to be an absolute gun nut like most here not just a hobbyist to understand that shit. I've had a hell of a time trying to explain it to friends who were genuinly interested and I sometimes run across shit on this very sit about the ban that I previously didn't know.

Yesterday I picked up a used Ruger P95 at Gander Mountain I had on lay-away and asked if they would be selling hi- cap mags now that the ban was lifted. He said, "No, I don't think so. I haven't heard what the policy will be." Me, "Hmmm..." Him, "And if I had my way, we would keep it that way." Me, "Well what about guns that are shipped with the new mags?" Him (in a patriarcal, "take the high road" manner), "Well we probably just won't carry them anymore." Yeah, right, so you're pretty much just going to sell Vaqueros and black powder then, eh??? I didn't push it with him but there is a lot of re-education thats needed out there and some of these idiots are probabaly going to see a serious drop in business if they don't get smart.

What you need to do is ask to speak to a manager and get clarification on the subject. Sine your gun was on layaway, you couldn't just walk, but if you have a choice and a sporting goods store has an anti-freedom policy, make it clear to them that you will vote with your wallet and buy your gun somewhere else. Sporting goods stores are a dime/dozen. Find one that supports your 2nd amendment rights.

Nope, seen her at the range shooting. She's in the shop all the time checking out the new toys.



There aren't enough of "them". I was at an indoor range one time and a very attractive lady came in, put up a silohuette target, wrote some guys name on it, then proceeded to empty a mag into its groin area. She was good, but a little scary. Wonder what the story behind that was?

Sorry about the hijack.
