When people from other country's talk about how the USA is uncivilized because there are lots of guns. Im sorry your from a pansy country who wouldn't stand up for itself when its government confiscated your guns.

Actually, I was reading something just yesterday, it may have been here….When Australia did that, the vast majority didn't do anything, and just kept them. Apparently, the Govt. is still trying to figure it out.

I hate when you show a friend one of your guns and the first thing they do is point it and dry fire it

Amen. In all probability I wouldn't mind if they dry fire it. It depends on the gun. What ticks me off is them not even having the courtesy to ask first.

Another one of my pet peeves? When a gun store clerk hands you a firearm with the magazine in it and the slide/bolt closed. It's even worse when they hand it to somebody else who promptly points it at me. We have a local big box store that I will not name (rhymes with pander fountain) that is famous for this.

Tacticool people who completely write off a gun as worthless or a POS because it has a wooden stock, isn't semiautomatic, or has a cylinder.

Agree with all of the above. I have a tendency to ask first, even if they have offered I make sure. As for people that use "cutesy" names, to me it's like the same as "Bedazzling" a gun with cute color grips(not functional except for some of the wood ones), or fake Jewels on the side of the slide.....just doesn't do it for me. Wife Said: "please don't ever surprise me with one like that" it will be up for sale very quickly.

Me? Not in the least. Her, def. Not! The only color she liked at SHOT was a white poly grip she saw on a Taurus TCP738, otherwise...no go on the colors....
She has almost as much "Black" & "OD green" in her wardrobe as I do...
