So I go to Cabela's tonight to kill off some time. I am pushing my kid around in a  shopping cart and showing him the fish. It was a good cheap way to kill off a Friday night.

I decide to head over to the gun counter because it usually produces a good story if you just hand out and eaves dop for about 60 seconds.

They were having a "gun show" (about 4 tables with 10 guns each on them). This guy wearing a bunch of camo and a Remington hat walks by with his 6(?) y.o son. They were looking at some shotguns and head over to a table with a few EBR's and some Tactical 870's.

Son-"Wow those look cool!"

Dad-"Those guns are just for policeman. Let's go look at the guns with the pretty wood on them instead."

Man, I could write a book with all the funny crap I hear there.

Should've slid up next to him by the Perazzi's and said to your son "See these, they are just for Obama Voting turncoats".

That's not a bad idea. You help fix the ignorant people that seem to work there. A few weeks ago I hear the guy telling  a lady who had asked about a good gun for home defense  a Browning Buckmark is good because it won't over penetrate the walls if you miss the bad guy.

My 5 year old daughter prefers the EBRs to "the guns with the pretty wood on them".
 











ETA: In a few years, my kid will be kicking his kid's ass.  And it's sad, really, because his kid had such promise....

Is it really learned, or is it a result of the lack of learning?

My SAR-2 has some pretty wood on it.






A few hours on Counter Strike should sway the boy to our side.

I would have been tempted to kick him right in the genitals in front of his son for that comment about "pretty wood".

Nice to see a Fudd raising his young son in ignorance.  Probably has one of those "Gun Owners For Obama" stickers on his car.

Personally, when my EBRs have all been banned, I won't give a damn when they ban his hunting rifles too.

In fact, I'll just sit by and not lift a finger to fight for their rights.  You know, like they act towards us.

No more shooting Bambi because your "sniper rifle" is too dangerous?  Don't like it all of a sudden when they are coming for you next?  Tough shit.

And they most assuredly WILL be coming for your "guns with the pretty wood on them" next, once they're done with ours.

At least he had his kid where they sell guns and was taking him to look at them.

I hate the "us vs them" mentality within our own ranks and it divides our strength.

Calling people like that names is as bad as the guy making the ignorant "police" comments about the guns.

Real TSMG are select-fire. That one is a Stemple 76/45 in a Thompson disguise. It uses a genuine Thompson lower frame so it has the single - auto selector switch, but it does nothing. Both modes are full-auto. But why would you want to shoot it on semi anyway?

"Wood" is what you get when you have an EBR/SBR/AR15/Thompson/Class III etc etc.

Not all is lost. My dad's an Obama and Franken voting Fuddtard; and my mom, as sweet as she is and as much as I love her firmly believes that less guns will equal less crime.  When I told my dad about buying my AP4 he asked "What do you need one of them for?" Sometimes kids turn out alright in spite of their parents.

thanks, she's a 1955 Harrington & Richardson CMP Service Grade. What's neat to me is that the barrel is marked 5-55, rifle is 30 years older than I am, I was born 5-85
