There's a pawn shop near me that is also a dealer of several brands of new firearms. I went there a couple of weekends ago to check things out. Decent inventory, good prices, really nice employees.
BUT.... As I was about to leave, there they were. CHL Badges. I guess the guy didn't catch the look of disgust on my face as I was eyeing them. He said something to the effect of, "We can have your name etched on there in a couple of days with your carry permit."
I politely declined and chose not to comment. It's their store. What I really wanted to say was, "Nah. Just rip my arm off and dip the bloody stub in lemon juice!"
It's not my intention to start yet another CHL badge thread. That decomposed horse has been kicked enough. The point is that a gun shop should know better! It seriously makes me want to never go there again because their integrity has now been compromised in my viewpoint.
Maybe it's just me, but a thing like that makes me take a dim view of that shop, regardless of their helpfulness and good prices.
