SHTF and you might be standin next to him as he knocks off a BG and you'll be thinking, "Now where did I see that guy?" Oh yeah.... He did know how to close the slide! Looks like he figured it out!

    I saw an ole boy who looked like he couldn't buy a cup of coffee, pull 48,k out of pocket and pay cash for a vette. (That was 20 years ago.) Weird stuff happens every day.

    Not everyone is an expert like you. You could have made conversation with the guy about his new weapon and helped him instead of making fun of him.

    You are right about one thing... Flamed for class time! I get a little irritated at self-righteous people who want to make rules for everyone. - Sounds too much like socialism / communism.
    Amen, amen, and amen!

    Support the 2nd amendment. Not only when it meets your needs. Be glad another citizen is arming himself..Help him learn don't discourage him.

    I think these suits should be standard equipment for all these forums.

    If you think about it, everyone on this forum including myself was a first time gun owner and didn't know beans about them. And I don't know about you, but I'm still learning about them after 50 years of many guns owned and used.

    Which other constitutional rights do you think that we need to take classes for, before we can exercise them?

    If we don't want to live in a trashy area, we all have to be willing to help pick up the trash.

    I think I'll go with he'll probably never figure out how to shoot it. Now how did he say to get the clip out? Lol

    Fast forward to when I was about 24 and decided to get my first handgun. I went to the library, checked out some books (Big things made of tree products with lots of instant pictures and words. Amazing things!), and read everything I could about handguns. I spent about a year researching and finally bought a Ruger Security-six. I asked the salesman to show me all he could, then I proceeded the woods to teach myself to shoot.
    Well, 35 years later I'm still shooting. Haven't killed or maimed anyone, or myself. Have taught many others to shoot. And am still learning new things about guns and shooting.
    I guess the moral is-don't be too hard on others-remember, you had to take that first shot at one time too.
    That book thing you mentioned, the one made from tree products, are you trying to say they actually exist or something? I thought that was just an internet myth. Next you'll tell me it doesn't use electricity. Probably sell me my own hat if I put it on your table too!

  9. maybe

    Maybe he was going to a class and needed a gun

    I sometimes wonder why people spend do much time fighting over principle when acknowledging the responsible isn't asking that much. Yes the guy has the right to buy a gun, would I want to be within firing distance of him if his knowledge of firearms is truly what he demonstrated, no. it would be a great thing if a firearm familiarity class were available to everyone. I had the benefit of some very responsible people growing up that forced hunter safety classes and firearm safety practices on me before I was allowed to begin hunting and eventually carrying a firearm and it scares the crap out of me that so many people don't have that experience. I will say that I almost fell out of my chair when someone mentioned safety classes for walnuts, very funny.

  11. Guess it was all he needed to know at the moment. :-)
