I went to Bass Pro today to take a buddy shooting. Brought my 229, M4, and Rem870. They make you install trigger locks on all the guns you bring in, so I let them lock up the M4 and 870. He asked to lock my pistol, told him it was my CCW and I wasn't going to let him lock it. He OKed it, and we went to the range area. They said no shotguns or rifles unless you go to the "tube" which was only one lane and in use all day. We decided just to shoot pistol.
When we left, we forgot to have the M4 and 870 unlocked. Got home, and my buddy called and reminded me. I really didn't want to drive all the way to bass pro and back just to get them unlocked...it's not a short drive and my truck eats gas like it's cool. I feel a little bad about shorting bass pro 2 trigger locks, but whatever.
First off, the M4. Ball point pen to press in the pin and swing the trigger guard open. 2 seconds, and the lock was off. Why even bother putting a trigger lock on a gun that has a swing away trigger guard?
With the 870, I took a drill bit to the lock and it was off in under 30 seconds. I would have picked the lock instead, but I was feeling lazy. I'll return the in tact one to bass pro next time I'm there.
