Good Instincts pay off
I was at the Dallas Market Hall gun show this morning intending to sell a Glock 26. Not a minute after I enter the show, a guy comes up to me asking about the Glock and price. I told him my price and he countered with an offer about $25 less than my asking price. Since I'd just gotten there, I thought I'd check out other potential buyers. I stopped to show the Glock to my buddy and the guy comes up to me again wanting to buy it and waving a stack of bills. I asked if he had a CHL or was willing for me to write down his name and driver's license. He backed away and said he would buy something else. So, I continued into the show.
As I was leaving, I see 10 - 11 Dallas Police squad cars in the parking lot together. Being curious, I look over to see what was happening and peeked in the back seat of one of the squad cars and there is the guy in the back handcuffed.
Glad I didn't sell to him.
Trust your first impressions!!!!

I've learned to listen to those "gut feelings" I get occasionally.
It has saved my bacon more than once.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

Amen to those instincts (gut feelings), they do work wonders.
I would be curious just to know what he did though.

Good judgement comes from experience...and a lot of that comes from bad judgement. It took me a while to appreciate the little voice in the back of my head.
Know Guns, Know Safety, Know Peace.
No Guns, No Safety, No Peace.
Guns are like sex and air...its no big deal until YOU can't get any.

Glad you listened to your inner voice?
I always try to do what those 'voices' tell me to do...

Well done listening to you gut feeling! Always listen to the little man who lives in your head! He knows a lot more than you think he does. Often he knows more than you do.

From all of the decent, hardworking, law-abiding, honest, freedom loving, citizens of the United States of America: THANK YOU! You resisted the waving cash in the face tactic and thwarted the bad intentions of someone who probably should not possesing firearms. You demostrated logic in not selling a gun to just anyone that has the money. Sure you would not be responsible for anything that happened but you would feel guilt. Again THANKS for using good judgement.

I'll bet someone with a FFL got a complaint and that person called LE telling them someone tried to buy a hand gun w/o a permit.

Now if I could get my "Instincts" to work on the stock market, I could probably retire.

In Tx you don't need a "PERMIT"to buy a gun,we can buy as many and as often as we like,unlike oppressive states,I'm betting an off duty cop saw the guy and knew he was a convicted felon,then watched him as he tried to buy or purchased a gun,right there he has PC to arrest for felon in posession

Not to hijack the thread but when you are buying or selling at a gun show do you go on looks or just a gut feeling? I was at a show this weekend and saw several "Dillon Cleebold wanna-be's" as well as a few gang banger types and thought to myself "I would never buy or sell from/to that guy!"
Either you are a weapon and your gun is a tool or your gun is a weapon and you are the tool.

I use to pay attention to what the little guy inside in my head tells me. And it is totally fine to listen to him, but if you start to answer too then you are in big trouble
Glad it worked out!
