Jon, you're spot on.For years I had a table at local gun shows. There were folks that I refused to sell a gun to. I started wondering if some that weren't obvious shouldn't buy one either.
The last straw for me was a show where a nicely dressed, average looking young man offered to sell me a "like new" model 29 in the walnut case for $250.
I told him that I would buy it as long as he was aware that he was selling it at half of dealer cost. He was okay with that. I picked up the weapon and went to the pay telephone to have the department run NCIC on the serial number. the young man bolted out of the door, neverr to be seen again.
The police dept was able to track down the person the weapon had been stolen from and return it.
I haven't had a table at a gun show since.
