A new convert buys her first gun
In my thread Stages of a new convert she was thinking of buying a gun back in December 2008. Today I met her at a gun store and we bought that Glock 26. They only had one and it had Glock night sights on it. She didn't really want night sites, but since no one in the city had a G26, she sprang the extra bucks and bought it.
No 9mm ammo though. Makes the gun kinda useless, but we will find some somewhere.
As we left the store, she asked me if I wanted to get some coffee at the Starbucks across the parking lot. I agreed. She said, "I will just put this (the gun) in my motorcycle carry bag and we can walk over. It will be safe. No one steals stuff from motorcycles." After having her committed to the local insane asylum, we put the gun in my car, drove over to the Starbucks and discussed a few gun related things.
She was going to go riding with a girlfriend, so I took the gun home with me for safe storage. When she came back, the gun mysteriously disappeared....uh, er, I mean, I wanted to show her a few things. She complained about the night sights at the store so I took her into a dark room and showed her the advantages. Her eyes lit up...well, at least her tone did as she joyously said, "hey, you can see where you are pointing." OK, that was cleared up. I showed her how to field strip, clean, etc.
She is now going to take her CHL class for both Oregon and Utah, and a few gun shooting classes. Not sure, though, how she will take the classes without ammo, but one step at a time.
