Caught, I was. A friend of mine (great guy, but a total newb at computers) was filling out an electronic 4473 at Cabela's and did something goofy and backed away throwing his hands up saying "Now what?" I grabbed the mouse to get the cursor back where it belonged and three employees behind the counter all yelled at me at the same time. "Get back! You can't touch that. He has to fill it out himself."
Me: I was just moving his cursor back where it belonged.
Them: NO! He has to do it. Is he the actual buyer?"
Me: "Yes"
Friend: Bladed at 45 and said, "Hey, I'm not a FUCKING computer person, OK"
Them: "Well, he can't touch it."
So I backed off, watched over his shoulder coaching for about 3 times as long as filling out a paper copy. We continued to get the hairy eyeball from the counter folk until we left.

So does touching another man's mouse really make it a straw purchase?

Yeah. Yeah it does.

ETA: Why straw purchases are illegal is another matter.

Hairy eyeball after spending money at the store? not very friendly customer service IMO but then again, most gun shops are not overly friendly.

Electronic, you say? That could speed up the process if done right.

Swipe driver's license.

Walk up to keyboard, hit Y-N-N-N-N-N-N-N-N-N-N-N, firearm!


(Of course, with my experience with electronic forms, it will never be like that. )

First time I had seen an electronic one too. I s'pose it makes it easier to get data into the non-existent database.

Yeah, right! Could you IMAGINE?

GDs collective heads would EXPLODE at the thought of swiping your license.

You should have told them your friend is blind, and if they don't accommodate him, you will sue under the Americans with disabilities act.












Yes....he was blind the whole time.

Why do you always post in bold?

Perhaps I should try posting in bold.

How about bold, in a larger font?

Is this more impressive?

Could have told them it's just putting information into a program that then fills out the form with the entered information. So the form isn't filled out until you click the last box.

No. You have to use bold pink to be impressive.



But... I guess the store wasn't completely against the purchase... otherwise they'd have denied it totally.
although that is a bit derpy still
