Here is something that has happened a few times.

Older gentleman comes up the the counter and asks to see a 1911. He then feels the need to tell me the story of how the .45 came to be.

Here it goes: "You know why they made the .45 son? Back in WWII them Japs would dope up on drugs, when they was on them drugs the 9mm just wouldn't kill 'em. So the army designed the .45 cuz it's got stoppin power and it would knock them boys clean off of their feet."

This has happened to me at least 3 times.

That's for sure,at that point we decided to go back and shoot at the farm we didn't want to disturb before season.

Last thing we wanted to see was nature weeding the crop or one us getting shot by some drunk!

That was three months ago and it was still at $55 the last time we were there and they still hadn't sold that magazine. We don't shop there anymore.
Please tell me where it was so I can avoid going there!

I saw a young lady shooting a semi-auto and had her left thumb behind the slide, but low enough not to hit it (luckily).

I mentioned it to the acting RO. He went over and explained that she should not operate a pistol with that hold, she stated that was the way her "advanced" training instructor told her how to hold it.

So many from which to choose.

Young man at the counter of one of the local guns shops, "You have any of those guns that'll shoot through body armor?"

Another little gem, "Will this hit what I shoot?" Without missing a beat, the dealer's response, "Yes."

Pulled him off the line, asked why shooting that way?

His sgt had explained that bullets do not travel in a straight line- it is CURVED. So he figured if he turned the rifle on its side, he could HOOK them bullets around the bushes there and hit the target.
That's damn funny. I guess someone forgot to explain to him how gravity works in high school physics class.

There was the time I went in to the LGS

where the owner and I are friends. I'm

buying a pistol, fill out the 4473, so

when the new guy goes to call it

in, I slipped the dude a

Three Stooges "Curly" ID

from South of the Border .

He grabs it without looking and runs into the office.

About 45 seconds later there's a loud "HEY!"
