I was in Dave's Guns today and some photographer took a bunch of pictures of me holding an AR15. He said they were going to be in Time magazine feature next week . Let’s see how they spin the story..... He seemed pretty nice and was fascinated by the rifles. He said there is not much of a difference between post-ban and pre-ban…duh!!!! I hope he puts that in the story.

most gun shops had news ppl call them on Monday, and most declined interview due to the way they twist stories.

I hope he had you sign a press release.

He kept telling me to point the rifle toward his direction and I said I don't want to violate any gun saftey rules. The shop was cool with it.
Link Posted: 9/15/2004 3:46:06 PM EST
Yes I signed a paper for him for permission to use photos.

I wouldn't be caught dead in Dave's Guns in Aurora, and I certainly wouldn't want photographic evidence of the visit.

Scumbags...

Let's see if the writer provides a fair look at the rifles. But my guess is he'll turn out to be an ass and pull another John Zarrella.

I saw those pictures today in a thread here on Ar15.com.

Umm.... Good first response but screw Dave's for being "cool with it". That'll probably be the only pic they publish - the dramatic "business end pic".

They are going to make you look like a......well, it wont be good.

Yep, You have been had.
Link Posted: 9/15/2004 4:19:21 PM EST
don't expect much... I've seen the footage already of stuff from daves the past couple days.. they always twist it unbelivably... and get their f'n facts wrong.

dave had good intentions, I'm sure, but you have to remember who we're dealing with.. talk to the media like they are elementary school kids (no offense meant to elementary school kids everywhere)
Link Posted: 9/15/2004 4:21:50 PM EST
Ummmm.......I'm sorry.
Link Posted: 9/15/2004 4:21:55 PM EST
that was foolish.

if you had any sense, you would have told them to fuck right off.

hope you smiled real big.
you wont be happy with the cover you are on.

Dave's sucks, I bought an expensive ( 2500.00) AW there and they act like they are doing me a favor. a few nice salesmen but generally pricks. go see Chad at Cal's. He is a good guy but don't waste his time finger fucking his guns, go in and buy something.

Please tell me that you're joking.

All I wanted was a 30rd LE magazine but he had me hold a post-ban with fake tele-stock I had my infant son with me in his car seat so I had to set him down. The salesman was standing behind me.

saw the pics already...
Link Posted: 9/15/2004 4:33:29 PM EST
Nimrod,

The rifle was not directly pointed at him and I kept my finger off the trigger. Another salesman kept walking in front of me so I would raise the muzzle high to avoid him sweeping himself.

you will be photochop fodder for the antigun media
Link Posted: 9/15/2004 4:35:12 PM EST
tool.


you failed.

Those pics are not me; he took the snapshots at about 5:30PM MST
Link Posted: 9/15/2004 5:12:51 PM EST
With the dishonest agenda of the press, you are likely to end up in the magazine with the caption, "Militia Member making a straw-man purchase for Al Qaeda terror cell".

Pictures never lie, but the captions often do.

Did you SERIOUSLY just say that Cal's is any better than Dave's when it comes to acting like they are doing you a favor in buying their guns!

You just have to get to know Chad is all. He has so many dipsticks come in it is amazing, I don't know how he does it. We probably would all be a bit aloof if you had to deal with the guys I see come in his store.
Link Posted: 9/15/2004 6:50:29 PM EST
chad is an asshat and a friggin whinney bitch. and for you to suggest otherwise in addition to your claims about "getting to know him" (~)crap it total BS.
Link Posted: 9/15/2004 7:19:35 PM EST
Chad sucks for being the self appointed 'preban' mag police.

Dave's sucks because they are crooks.

Both are equal in my books. I did like Chad until he got stupid and started the whole 'unmarked' mag fiasco. Before that, I had bought a lot of guns from him.

just exactly how do you "get to know" someone who is a total dick to you if he gives you the time of day at all?
Link Posted: 9/15/2004 8:25:10 PM EST
man, I avoid having my pic made -ANYTIME! I sure wouldn't have it done holding a gun.
Link Posted: 9/15/2004 8:30:03 PM EST
only let the camerman shoot you if he says you can shoot him first.
