So, the other day my buddy, Al (the 1911 hoarder) and I went to one of our local pawn shops that he has bought a lot of 1911's from. We went in and looked around, busy day for them and under staffed, we had to wait. While waiting we see a beautiful stainless STI in the case. Neither of us had ever seen one before. When Hal, our pawn store minion gets to us we ask to see it, he pulls it out (keep in mind, we have been there many times) and right away points at us THREE TIMES!!
The first was pulling it out of the case, handed it to me, didn't clear it, nothing. I pulled the magazine, said "let me clear it so we all feel comfortable, racked it and checked it for rounds, (since he didn't). I then handed it to Al and then he handed it back to Hal so he could tell us about it, that's when he did what he did, twice more. THEN after he put that back, he also pointed the business end of a rifle Al was looking at at him!.
SO, today Al is going back to talk to the manager of the pawn store, let him know politely that we won't shop there again (and spend major money) until he teaches his minions gun safety, or has someone else do it. The STI was $600 out the door, it might still be a buy for Al, he's not sure yet. Sure was purdy
(not sure if this should go to another forum, if it should, feel free to move it.)
