OK so i work at a local gunshop, and we have all heard some special comments, from both sides of the counter. Today i would like to share a few of the morons from the past week.

#1 (young male)
Customer: Yo, ya got da' AK beams!
Me: What?
Customer: ya knows the beamz fo da AK.
Me: Nope.


#2 (group of 5 males)

Customer: oh shit son, they gotz a degale! (points at SW500)
Customer: damn damn! that shits fullauto!
Me: Nope, and its SW 500
Customer: Ya gots the beams right?
Me: for what?
Customer: This Degale!
Me: Nope, and thats a SW500
Customer: (leans over the counter and quitely asks) ya got dem teflon vest right?
Me: Nope.


#3 (older male)

Customer: May i see that M16
Me: Its a AR15, i dont have any M16s in right now
Customer: No, thats a M16
Me: Hold on let me check something (i grab the bushy and show him the model #)
Customer: Well its actually a M16
Me: Sure it is.
Customer: See this here (points to the brass deflector) that makes this a left hand model only, if you where to shoot this is would peg you in the face every round.
Me: No its not and no it dont.
Customer: Listen kid, i was a Seal i think i know.
Me: I doubt you were a Seal and you clearly know little about AR15s
Customer: I have fired over a million round through this guns i think i know better then some gun shop kid.
Me: Sure Sure. (i take the rifle back and walk away.)
Customer: Wait a min let me see some more of them, you have to have a right hand model up there somewhere.
Me: Nope all left hand :)

This guy followed me around the shop for 10 min trying to convince me of how thats a left hand rifle only and so on, talking more shit then anyone i have encountered. His basic claim was all AR15's are actually M16's and if its got a deflector its a left hand model ONLY. Oh yea and hes a Seal.

I know this pisses you off, but it pisses me off as well.

These people vote.

Well, maybe not the beamerz. (I can only imagine)

So, what did they mean by Beamz? Lights?

not only do they vote, but their vote counts just as much as yours does!!
Link Posted: 2/16/2006 9:43:29 PM EDT
I'm no expert on "urban" slang but I think perhaps beamz means a laser sight (you know like laser beam).
Link Posted: 2/16/2006 9:44:00 PM EDT
I really like it when they ask me for the infared beamz for a Sigma.

Or how about for an FN 5.7 since "its got the piercing" - or whatever that means.

Dont forget that all "k's" have "rapid fire"

yes, i did see that exact scene transpire at the last gunshow i was at. it was kinda scarry!

What gets under my skin is that not only does their vote count but all it takes is on crazy lib to see that and make a case that we are all like that. Oh and they are breathing my air!

The worst gun shop experience I've ever had is when I was in a class III dealership in South GA, a few weeks ago.

The shop owner continued to tell me " You can't get M16s, hollywood bought them all up" and "you'll never find an SBR Uzi, there is no such thing, you can only get the pistol, full auto, or the carbine with a 16 in barrel, but there is no way you can get a SBR with a stock" Then he went off on a rant about how some woman ran to the police and told them that her husband was going to kill her with his supressed pistol. Then he continued to rant about women and how they would all be shot on sight if it wasn't for t*ts and p***sy, and how he was rejected in the 8th grade dance causing him to get into a fight. I don't think I have ever heard someone say fuck as many times in one conversation as this guy. I was sitting there thinking, "this type of guy is what gives us all a bad name"

#3......Holy SHITE! What a dumbass. The really bad part is that he INSISTS on making sure you know he's a dumbass! What a conversation!

While working the counter and RO at a large shop in VA, a group of homies came in reeking of MJ.
They must have lit up in the parking lot. It was strong and very noticable.
I politely declined them rental guns and range access. They pressed the issue and I explained to them my reasoning. They denied it and threatened to complain to the owner. Fortunatly, the owner was on the next floor down and I invited them to stop and speak to him.

I saw many many instances of 357 sig in 357 mag and vice versa. It was probably the most common mistake made.
Link Posted: 2/17/2006 4:31:05 AM EDT
One day a gentleman came into the store and was inquiring about shoulder holsters for cc. I asked him what type of gun, he said a fiddy deagle. Now this was a rather small statured man, maybe 115 lbs.

Well, we had one that would fit it, he looked rather funny though with the barrel hanging way past his belt.

What ever trips your trigger I guess.

Don’t even get me started on the idiots on the range. Sometimes I just have to hold myself back from slapping some of these people.

Until the .45 GAP - I have heard lots of stories of guys asking for .45 ACP and being handed .45 GAP.

Am I the only one who gets stark-raving mad when the term "Deagle" is uttered?

WTF are "Beamz"?
Link Posted: 2/17/2006 5:30:49 AM EDT

"Beamz"

I think they were inquiring about the possibility of purchasing a modern high output flashlight to mount on thier handgun.
Link Posted: 2/17/2006 5:50:36 AM EDT
Okay, color me stupid, but I have to ask...What is a "Degale"?

I'm going to assume Desert Eagle. The word deagle is just plain stupid.

However, some of the stories are interesting.

It's a lot like a 'Beagle', but does not shit on the floor.

+1 i'm hoping "deagle" isn't a common contraction outside compton, dee-troit, or soufeas dc...
Link Posted: 2/17/2006 6:12:30 AM EDT
I think deagle came from counterstrike IIRC.

I may be wrong though.

I think it started as a contraction that was easier to type than Desert Eagle
Link Posted: 2/17/2006 6:12:40 AM EDT
Wasn't it called a deagle in Counter-Strike? I'm pretty sure that's where I saw it first.

Never heard of beamz though. I'm going to have to start using that.

I'm fortunate. No one in my entire state talks like this.

I have learned a great deal, though.

"Deagle" = Idiot-speak for "Desert Eagle"
"Beamz" = Idiot-speak for either a weapon-mounted light or a weapon-mounted laser

Who says ARFCOM isn't educational?
Link Posted: 2/17/2006 6:26:26 AM EDT

This guy followed me around the shop for 10 min trying to convince me of how thats a left hand rifle only and so on, talking more shit then anyone i have encountered. His basic claim was all AR15's are actually M16's and if its got a deflector its a left hand model ONLY. Oh yeah, and he's a Seal.


LOL - Navy Seal my ass, that guy's a journalist!

The level of misinformation is pretty similar. If he was a journalist though, he'd have probably made some comment about it being able to shoot through schools from four miles away.

I'll take it. Sign me up for a couple of the M16 deagles beamers thingys make sure they are lefties. I know you gottem in For tay. Will you take a check?

Maybe he's related to John Kerry.

These guys were clearly fucking with you. Probably went out back and laughed their asses off afterwards.

A local gunshop owner was showing an AK to an interested customer. I think it was an SLR 105 A1 in 5.45. Beautiful rifle.

The owner kept insisting that the gun came direct from the factory in Europe and wasn't a "built" gun from imported parts. I noticed the "Arsenal" stamp on the side of the receiver, rolled my eyes, and walked out of the store.
