Just So You Know

If you walk in off the street and you're wearing baggy pants and have your hat draped to the side with two AR's wrapped in blankets and you're about fifteen years old...

Why in the name of all that's holy would you appear surprised when I ask where you stole the firearms.

    1. That was about it....I always expect a cop to walk in behind them.

  3. Stephen,

    I would have said the same thing. They probably just stole the guns from a home not to far from your shop. Hopefully, they left your shop without a problem? I would have called the cops on those little punks.

    3. The Colt? Yes, I suppose. In brief, several years back someone broke into my truck and stole two firearms, my favorite Colt AR and a Springfield XD45. Always log the serial numbers. When it comes to thief, police are all but worthless. Thanks, Max.

  6. I would have been tempted to ask him what he wanted for them. I guess I am a villain at heart.

  7. I just shared your post with the the guys who run Beaches Pawn (where I spend too much time and money)... We got quite a laugh out of it.
    They have a plethora of similar tales.
    Like the 55+ year old Urban Gentleman who came in looking to sell a surfboard- swearing up and down it was his personal board...
    Good times... Good times....

  8. I would have taken his phone number and called Uncle LEO on the doughnut tip line.

    1. and if he's part of a gang, then what happens when his buds come in for revenge?

    2. Rob, in truth I'd not call a cop if my butt was on fire.

      Matt, exactly. What goes around comes around.

    3. An intelligent man like yourself should never need to serve on a jury. I've skipped the last six attempts the county has tried to make me serve.

  9. Snerk... That's the RIGHT question... I assume he left rather quickly!

  10. Apropos of nothing, I suppose, where do you think I found those Arisaka clips?
