Where do they find these people???
So, my wife and I were in gun heaven (A sporting goods store with over 400 firearms to choose from) today looking for a good revolver for her first concealed carry pistol. She was looking at a Rossi .357 but she thought it was a little heavy. The guy behind the counter directed her to the LCR in .357 and she really liked the way it felt as opposed to the Rossi (Yes!!!). The guy (A CWP holder and instructor I believe) began to give her a little self defense advice and then talked with her about learning to shoot in the dark and gave her some tips on how to train a little for it. That was cool, I thought it was wisdom to know how to shoot in the dark; a little random but cool. However, the conversation quickly goes down hill from there when he tells her that the .357 will put someone down on the first shot every time even if she hits them in the top of the shoulder (While I have no interest in caliber wars on this thread - C'mon, really??? Every time???). He proceeds to tell her that if she shoots someone more than twenty feet away it's illegal no matter what. His solution? Drag the guy onto your front porch, turn him over and shoot him again. WTH???
Now, being the good Christian man I am I declined to tell him how asinine that entire line of instruction was and took my wife out of there. Once we were in the car I gave her a lengthy debriefing and decided not to ever come into contact with that man again. Where do they find these people? and how do they become instructors? :aargh4:
