Maybe so, but walking into a bank with it would not be using common sense. A lot of people say the P3AT (with the olive green polymer finish) and the Beretta Bobcat look like "toy guns", and the same is also true with these painted guns that are popping up now. You might not expect a gun painted neon green and pink to be real, but they do exist.My son has a very realistic cap gun...I'm afraid of the pop pop pop noise
Gun belt buckle my eye...
Very true, I've got a friend who thought the difference between a rifle and a shotgun was how many times you could fire them before reloading. Her whole gun knowledge before meeting me came from novels (like the romance kind, not the tactical shooting kind). Education is very important.There are so many people out there that are so uneducated about guns they wouldn't know a real one from a fake one if they could hold it. They see anything that resembles a gun and they panic.
"TSA" says it allThe images of the belt buckle in this story looked pretty realistic to me, and I did not spot it across the lobby of a bank. I was flying out of Sky Harbor Airport, in Phoenix, AZ one day, and had a belt buckle that was a revolver as seen from about a 1/4 view, which was about 2 inches by 3 inches. The idiot TSA guy made me take it off and give it to my wife, so I had to get to my plane using a cane, carrying my carry-on and holding my pants up as they were playing Civil War and trying to secede from the top. Only a real, certified idiot would have thought the buckle I was wearing looked like a real gun, and it looked even more phony than the guy in Mira Mesa.
