Was visiting my LGS. Will not say that it is my regular hangout, but there IS the coffee cup with my name on it....
Understand that we are in the South- so when a Boston accent shows up, it stands out. Two of them, more so. Two men were inquiring about the process to purchase "some handguns".
The gent working the counter told them- first thing- do you have documentation to show you are a resident of Virginia? Or military with a permanent duty station in VA? Well....no.
Sorry, but by Federal law, I cannot transfer a handgun to a resident of another state.
Oh. come on- isn't there some way this could be handled?
No- and having advised you of that, to continue to ask puts you at risk of a trip to a Federal prison.
And who's gonna call the cops, huh?
Counter clerk smiled, reached in his pocket, produced his badge case. "You mean besides the three that are in this store right now? Say good day gentlemen- time for you to leave now."
