I didn't know where to put this but I just have to vent. I just got back from the gun shop where I picked up a part for one of my guns. Anyway, I was looking at the different AR's, thinking of getting one in .308, well there is a retired homicide dectective with his and was showing me the sights he had on it and how they worked. He laid it back on the counter as the guy at the gun shop handed me another to look at. As I handed it back another guy that was there with the retired cop said I have one like it but it has this... as he picked up the cops gun to show me, he started to swing the rifle towards me and I could see the muzzle was going to come right across my chest, I grabbed the barrel and shoved it straight up so hard I just about jerked it out of his hands. He could tell I was not too happy and he apologized, but I had to resist the temptation of drawing my P99 with my other hand and putting it in his face as I pushed the muzzle away from me.

I think I will talk to the gun shop owner and see if they can't post a sign with the 3 golden rules and ask people to read it before they hand them a firearm. At least number one.

Well sorry for the rant, I tried to make it short, it could have been a lot longer if I said everything I wanted to say to that guy.

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10........... now I can turn my computer off and go home. :lol:

I always tell the people I go shooting with that I have 1 rule they better not ignore:
If a gun gets pointed at me I will assume your intent is hostile and I will return fire until the threat has been neutralized.

I think we all probably have stories of gun store idiots.

In my CFP course, my instructor had a red rubber gun and near the beginning of the course, he nonchalantly pointed the gun around the room at everyone. He said he could instantly tell the 'gun people' and those that respected guns because they instantly became nervous or even mad. I was on the front row and I even ducked as the fake gun went over my head.

He used it to convey a point - that you darn well ought to get nervous when someone points ANY gun at you. If you don't, you need to educate yourself better about guns.

With that said, we had a work party tonight and we played laser tag. It was a lot of fun, but I think it undid about a year's worth of gun discipline.

You can tell a lot about a person by the way in which they handle a firearm.
