I was at a counter getting box of shotgun shells once, and 2 younger kids were trying to buy AMMO, and the one was cocky & came across as a problem child. He was about 17. They wouldn't sell to him because he was underage.... and he kept saying to them.... "what do you think I'm going to do, go shoot people with them ? ".
the next day, I saw the same kid on the evening news..... he had gone into a school and started shooting people. He killed the Principal, seriously wounded a couple of teachers and students, and wounded others as well (although not seriously).
I did contact a Sheriff's detective I knew and let him know where I had seen him the day before and what he had said.
He's been "free" for awhile now...... because he was convicted as a juvenile. So, they kept him for 4 yrs in a juvenile facility and then let him go.
What a hoot!!! Hopefully the mods traced it back to its source, and got this guy the help he so obviously needs!

That was a great display of ignorance from their part. I hope they mature and learn soon, before they hurt themselves or someone else.
Yes, definitely Gecko45 was there inconspicuously.

I am a youth pastor and obviously pro-gun. Well Guns and video games very often come up in discussions with the young males I work with. I have one idiot student who constantly uses the name "DEGAL" to refer to the desert eagle. Apparently this is the name for it one of these TACTICOOL video games has given it. Even as I correct him every time and tell him how uninformed and stupid he looks for calling it that he continues.
I do have a friend whose father passed down a D.E. 44 Magnum, I see no purpose for this large (Frame wise) of a gun. We, jokingly, wore the Leg drop holster it came with for 10 minutes each around the house. WAY TOO impractical for anything I can think of.
