    "I've got my gun and ear and eye protection with me, so if you've got a range down here, I'd like to tryout your bullet proof vests please"

    "Hang on, let me load this round in here and try it out- no, no, I know what I'm doing"

    "I think there's something wrong with the ejector- the casing keeps getting jammed- The brand? It's a revolver, I think"
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    "Do you have any Black Talons? No? They're supposed to be strong enough to rip a full grown African Rhino in two and keep tearing it apart until there's nothing left- It's the best hunting round ever."

    "I'd like to return my 1911- the trigger doesn't work. I have to cock the hammer? My gun didn't come with a hammer"

    Oops- I didn't mean to offend you or anything- I'm one of those people who believe that Glocks are ugly.

    Let's see, I've heard:

    I just got outta jail this morning & learned how truly dangerous the streets of LA really are...what do I need to buy a gun? (Actually heard that once during one of my many trips into a gun shop)

    Do you guys sell that adapter so I can shoot 9 mm from my 45?

    After seeing an XYZ rifle in a dealers display case,look at him/her and ask.. "Will you order me one of those? I want to pay wholesale too!"

    "Can you tell me the prices of other dealers in town on that exact same gun?"

    :D :D :D

    Depends how MUCH cheaper, Sisco.

    If their markup is unbelievably higher than either Shotgun News, Gun List, GunsAmerica, or Davidson's, darn right I'll let that dealer know they're trying to pay the shop lease, utilities, kid's braces, payroll, college fund, and insurance premiums on the sale of that one gun.

    I'm not afraid to tell them. I also hold an FFL, it ain't exactly a big secret how things work in the gun retail business. ;)

    Never heard anything like those things at my favorite gun shop.

    Do I need to find one that's more fun?

    Would that be a fun gun shop?

    Gewehr98 - I think I've been to the gunshops you're talking about! When I posted that I was thinking about the customer in the shop yesterday that bragged to everyone in earshot that he could buy nearly everything in the shop, from guns to bottles of Hoppes "cheaper on the net".
    Before buying I usually check auctionarms, gunbroker etc. usually the sale price is a little under the local dealer but by the time you add shipping & transfer fees it usually evens out. If the price is a whole lot cheaper, darn right I'd let him know!

    When one of our favorite gun shops closed down and asked why owner said "with some of this bunch that comes in here...my ribs hurt from laughing so much".

    Heck we'd go buy and place bets as to how long before the dumb question of the day was asked;)

    "well how are you gonna get it transfered to you"

    "Dont you do that?"

    "Yes, its $25"

    "Wow, you have a lot of nerve trying to charge me"

    I was at my local gunshop a few weeks ago. It happened to be the weekend of a local gunshow. The phone was ringing regularly with people asking how to get to the gunshow.
    The workers answering the phones were helpful and patient but, man, it takes a lot of nerve to call a shop and basically say "Hello, I have money to spend on what you are selling. Could you please give me directions to your biggest competitor so I can spend it there and not with you?"

    Hey..can I see that gun on your hip?

    Watch this neat trick I learned....

    You have any "Cop Killer" bullets for sale?

    My dad has a Glock just like that he brought back from Vietnam. Got it from a NVA Colenol.

    I want to buy this gun for a freind of mine who can't buy a gun. It's a bogus charge of course, so that's why I'm buying it for him.

    Good Shooting

    Thanks for taking the time to show me all the different guns. Now I know exactly what I want, and I'm going to have my friend order me one.

    Usually followed by...

    I bought this gun, but I need someone to show me how it works.

    And my favorite...

    This gun I bought isn't working right, and the guy I bought it from won't help me.

    1st runner up...

    What do you mean you want $50 and 2 weeks to put a pad on this gun? You said it would cost $10 and be ready when I got the gun if I bought it from you. Why should I pay more and have to wait?

    While on a recent trip to the local gun shop, I heard someone asking about 1911's:

    "Well I heard 1911's are a bear to take apart, and I'm half stupid anyway"

    Me and the employee who was on the phone calling in my NICS check just looked at each other dumbfounded. I swear he almost dropped the phone.

    Non verbal....picking up that new custom 45 on display, pulling back the slide to ensure that its unloaded, then simultaneously hitting the slide release and letting the slide slam forward on the empty chamber while rotating the pistol 90 degrees to the side in the best gangsta style.....
