Was at my favorite gun store today placing an order.
Grandmother at the counter purchased a Bersa .380. Watched the salesperson assist her with the paperwork and explain how she could transport (but not conceal carry without a permit). He explained to her, after she asked, that a laser wasn't available for this gun. She told him, "that's ok, I intend to practice." Told her he'd be right back with her purchase.
Started to tell her she was making a great purchase, but decided to let her do her thing. I'm sure she'll be very happy.
She'll have some peace of mind tonight.
It's hard not to interject and I am not always sure which would be the best course of action. You so want to say something but fear you are sticking your nose in where it doesn't belong. Good for her and thanks for sharing this experience.

+1. Last time I was at my local range there was a woman in her 50s or so in the middle of telling a story about her deceased husband and the pistols he used to have....she ended up buying a Ruger Sp101 (excellent choice!)

glad to see it... just hope she maintains the weapon with cleaning and all

Practice. I know an older lady who has secretly carried a gun for over 30 years. Guess how many times she has shot it in that time.......
yep, you got it, none. Got a bit cantankerous when I advised maybe she should at least change her loads. Nice lady, and a buck says she would drop a cap in you, no question.
I don't like folks telling me things in shops either. Good call leaving her be.
I know, I know, you are smarter than me..just ask you..
Cool, I also saw an old couple buying a fannypack for a Baby Eagle they were purchasing at the time.Today I was at the range and there was an old couple taking turns shooting.It's good they realize that the cop's are'nt always there.
