Had an encounter with the mall ninjas at a local gunshop
I had to share. I saw a group of guys (late 20's) walk into one of my local gun shops this weekend. It all started when they shouted in the middle of the crowded shop "Are you a class III dealer?".
I wanted to see where this was going so I listened. Next they asked one of the employees if they had any desert eagles in stock. The employee took them to the case and started pulling out a couple, first he pulled out a baby eagle and the group started laughing at the top of their lungs about how small it was. When he pulled out the full-size .50 they were all in awe (although I did hear one guy say his arm hurt from trying to hold the DE up). Then came the point where they wanted to swing it wildly around the room sweeping other customers and the store employee like they were reenacting their mall ninja practice tactics.
The next question out of the guys was do you carry the .338 Lapua. The employee replied that they didn't. Obviously the guys were dissapointed and thought that this gun shop wasn't tacticool enough for them. During their disappointment, their ring leader gets a call from his mommy as he scrambles to make up an excuse for where he's at. While the rest of the group says "Come on, let's go see if they have any body armor or silencers." They walked out with nothing.
I am in no way saying that people don't have interests in these guns, but the way the whole conversation went and their interests just brought me flashbacks of the mall ninja saga.
Anyone else had a similar experience?
