I would have to echo this sentiment.
About 4 or 5 years ago a buddy and I went into a local gun shop that had opened in Bellevue ( rich interwebz money built the place ) and were billing themselves as THE place to come and get training in firearms.
Boasted a "stable" of ex police and military guys who would train you in everything from basic shooting to room clearing in their indoor range. It was a nice setup, but they lacked any real inventory.
My ex-buddy, who is a large ( read fat ) guy, but he moves really well. He has been big all his life. He really wanted a Model 96 Beretta and they had one, so he asked if he could see it.
Similiar to Goju's experience, the guy pulled the weapon out of the case, finger on or near the trigger and the gun pointed right at my buddy. As he went to sweep the barrel up into my buddy's position, my buddy was actually about 7 or 8 feet away off to the outside of the guy's hand and said in a loud voice "Yo dude, Wh*t the F**K?"
Needless to say, that got everyone's attention....
