Today I stopped by the gun shop looking for an old school Remington bolt .22. While looking around I overheard the clerk selling an elderly lady a pistol. I'm thinking wow this is great, I love to see people arming themselves! Well after I listened for a bit I figured out she was getting a smallish .380 and she couldn't rack the slide! The clerk told her that she could just leave one in the pipe and her son could clean it for her. This seems crazy to me, why didn't they sell her a revolver? Am I wrong or missing something here? How could they sell her a gun she couldn't operate?
