    About the only thing I would add is to be sure the employees and others around you know that you are going to do it.

    Drawing a weapon suddenly and w/o prior notice is a good way to get shot, in this neck of the woods.

    I bought a Crimson Trace laser grip for my G19 at the local gun shop I do most of my gun business with. Before I even paid for it the shop owner asked me if I had my G19 on me, I said yes. He said I'll put it on for you. I told him it was loaded. He said to unload it and he will fix me up. So I safely cleared it and handed it to him. He put on the laser, handed it back to me, and I reloaded/holsterd it...

    The thing I hate the most is someone pointing a gun at me in a gun shop/show. I know its unloaded but it still aggravates the heck out of me...

    4. The clerk and I are discussing something about the pistol.
    5. I ask if he wants to see it.
    6. He says OK.
    7. I produce the pistol, and keep it pointed at the floor.
    8. I show him the serial number, finish, laser, proof mark, whatever.
    9. I put the pistol back where I had been keeping it,(pocket,pouch, whatever).

    ? Is there something wrong here? This is after all, a place that buys and sells handguns.
    Assuming all was as you say, I tend to agree. Granted, any time I've ever brought a gun into a gun store to show, sell, repair, etc. I always put it in its original box, unloaded. I figure that will make the workers at the gun store feel more comfortable. However, I could imagine a situation where maybe an unexpected conversation came about concerning my carry weapon of the day. As long as the clerk wanted to see it and understood I was carrying it loaded, I wouldn't have a problem pulling it out. I would definitely remove the magazine and check the chamber before handing it to him, though.
