    "You have a Benelli"

    "I have a what?"

    "That box over there?"

    "Oh, what's it for? Some _______ came in that as a Christmas present from my brother."

    I understand the precautions that some people have about letting strangers into their home, but sometimes you have to sell something big and there is no way around it. In college, I sold some stuff on craigslist and there weren't any problems. Keep your head on a swivel.

    Bought a new leather sofa to put in my bedroom. When it was delivered, three guys brought it up the stairs and into my bedroom. I had completely forgotten that I keep three rifles on my bedroom gun rack above the bed...an AR-15, a shotgun, and a .22 rifle. These guys had been eyeing the house as they moved through it and I could immediately see that their three sets of eyes all found my artillery at the same time. One asked, "Are you a hunter?" I replied, "No." "Then what are those guns for?" What out missing a beat, I blurted out, "Those are my anti-theft devices." Unless I buy more furniture, I don't believe I will have to worry about seeing those guys show up uninvited.

    I wouldn't worry about it. The fact that he's a teacher, should give you some peace of mind. Also that the little girl knew what a Benelli was is a good sign to me (he's teaching his kids right) I probably would have tried to put together a trip to shoot some clays, I'm always looking for someone to shoot/hunt with.

    Hey, you learned a lesson via a little girl and her teacher daddy. Next time you'll know to be more cautious, but I'm 99 & 44/100th sure you got away clean on this one. Sleep well...

    ret has it spot on. They even named the family pooch Benelli.......gotta love it.


    Yes, be a little more careful in your forethought as to who comes over to your home, but a middle-skool teacher with two young'uns in tow isn't a red-flag IMO.

    I agree with this as well.

    I find it ironic that you're worried about this one person who paid you full in cash but you have no hesitations about sharing the same info with thousands of other strangers on this forum.

    Pretty much anyone can find out for example that I am an instructor for the MN carry permit. After all I advertise to drum up busniess. That said it pretty much means I own and probably carry guns. It goes with the territory and I don't spend a lot of time worrying about it. It's never been an issue.

    Not to mention a dog named Benelli. How cool is that?
