Roommate needed to get groceries, and I needed some .22LR so I give him a ride up to the local Wallyworld.

We get there, I head straight for the Sporting goods.

There actually is a mid 40's age woman at the ammo counter. She's talking to an older gray haired gentleman who isn't buying anything at the far corner.

I walk up to the register, and she doesn't acknowledge me, just keeps talking to graybeard.

I listen in:

Him: "Yeah, all the gun experience my pop didn't teach me, Uncle Sam did"

Her w/an interested look: "Oh wow... I bet you know a lot about guns, do you teach classes or anything?"

Him: "No."

Her: "Well do you teach friends? Or kids or anything?"

Him: "No."

Her: "Oh."

Him: "What it's all about is Stag Arms... uh... you know... they make a M16 type gun, that's what I've always wanted to get"

Her: "Yeah, it's so hard to get guns these days"

(At this point I automatically think she is referring to the run on guns.... no such luck)

Her: "Yeah, they gotta take your DNA these days when you buy guns like that"

Him, with a laugh: "Yeah, it's crazy"

(I'm just mentally facepalming at this point, I must have had quite the blank stare on my face)

She then finally acknowledges me, and asks me what I need.

I tell her I need .22LR and ask her what she has.

She says she had about 4 boxes left of the Winchester 333 value packs.

I tell her I want two.

A 'Holy-Shit-I-Just-Had-An-Idea' look comes over her face, and she says "Hey, I need some I.D."

(I'm almost 26)

I pull out my CHL and hand it to her.

She stares at it for about 5 seconds before she realizes what it is.

Her: "Ohh! Oh, wow, handgun...uh...ok...."

(Scans the item)

I pay and GTFO.

It is a true, but sad fact that at this point no one tried to steal my ammo or disarm me on my way out.

FAIL. A real ARFcommer would have bought it all.

+1 on the mental facepalm for the DNA comment.

And you didn't offer to leave any DNA....

...on her face?

That Winchester is good stuff, should have bought all of it.
