Number 8 sounds like me. Heck the one older guy in the shop near me says he can't retire because of what he owes the shop even tho he is ready. He's kidding, sorta, I've seen the guns he likes. They are not cheap.

Let's hear it.

The gun story I love is when the Widow shows up with hubby's guns waving them around, of course they are locked and loaded.

And supposedly one older woman wanted to know how much she could get for this grenade her spouse brought back.
Link Posted: 1/13/2006 7:29:45 PM EDT
You forgot that no matter how pro-gun you are, there will ALWAYS be someone in the shop that makes you think that gun control MIGHT be okay for them.

There are just as many idiots on the OTHER side of the counter.

That every 'gunstore down the street' is a little cheaper'.

Okay, lets hear the 45GAP story.

pretty accurate
Link Posted: 1/13/2006 7:46:55 PM EDT
There people that work in the gun store can be just as scary as the customers.

I had a guy behind the counter trying to sell a rossi 38 say, "See you can just pic it up and shoot" at which point he snatched the 38up off the shelf under the glass leveled it at my stomach and pulled the trigger...... 8 times once at my stomach, once at my side, and 6 times at my back as I was knocking open the door!

I never figured the AD thing
Every shop i have been in to has at l;east a couple of stories or holes we have been in bussiness for 15 years and never had one and a retard brings in a loaded gun at least once a month
they do not get 3 steps in the door before i politely ask them to come over here and check their weapon
I probably jinxed myself and someone will shoot something tomorrow

Open carried firearms are easy, It's when they fast draw a lorcin from their pants and ask if "you have a holster for this kinda gun"

Guilty. I was just in my favorite shop where I bought my Kimber Pro Carry several years back looking at the 340 and 640 Smiths. Leaning to the 640.

All of those points are true. I worked in a gun shop for a couple of years before I went in the service. I saw all kinds of dumbasses come and go. As long as they didnt damage anything and they filled up my register, I didnt mind all that much. When the hood rats came skulking into the store, we always made a point to quietly pull our shirt tails up over our concealed pistols and let it be known that someone might get lead poisioning should someone decide to do something stupid.
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 3:31:01 AM EDT
Ahh, so true, so true. I can relate to pretty much all of that....

Dont forget the women who go "Are those Machineguns???? And with a straight face, you answer, these arent right here, but we have some up there".

My former boss had a chick pull a beretta .22 and point it at his face and ask the holster question.
He disarmed her. Removed the mag from the gun, the round from the chamber, the rounds in the mag and handed it all back to her with the instruction to get the !@#$ out of his store. She went to mgmt. to complain about his language. When he told mgmt the story, they pointed towards the door and said, "Have a nice day, Ma'am!" I personally thought giving the gun back was very generous.

One week later a guy looking at a side-by-side pulled a round from his pocket, slipped it in the chamber and closed the action. My buddy saw him put the gun to his chin and pull the trigger (it was a double trigger and the guy pulled the wrong one) and started towards him. As my friend got to him the guy pulled the other trigger. Nasty! That one made the Indianapolis papers.

So how else are we supose to know what gun to buy from the shop down the street.




I dont go into a gunstore unless I'm planning to buy and i dont go into a gunstore with less than $1,500 cash in pocket, usually twice that. Lately gunstores have been a pretty frustrating experiance. I'll have a list of makes/models I want, show the list to the first clerk I can find and 9:10 times they dont have any of the models on the list and instead want to sell me another 10/22, 870, XD.

Sure, at or near MSRP. If I want to order it I can get a better deal by ordering it myself and paying the local Pawn Shop $15.00 to transfer it.

Its not like I'm looking for rare firearms. Its common stuff like standard M1A's, lever action .44mag carbines, steel framed 5" 1911A1 in 45acp (with no ambi safety).

That's why when I go into gun shops, the first thing I say is, "Hi, I'm just looking and want some info. Is that OK?" or something like that. That seems to cut the tension.

You don't have to buy every time you go in. Just don't be the guy who leans on the counter for 3 hours every other day.
