    Well, he won't need the "protection" where he is going - won't need the money either.

    Good call by the business owner. I like his quote about not having justification to draw and fire. That's a man who knows his stuff.

    I disagree, I would think he hopes that there WILL be protection when he meets Mr. Ben Dover...

    If he waits until somebody pulls a gun before he draws he will regret that decision one day,he may not be justified to shoot,but there was a potential threat.

    I presume that these guns worth several thousand bucks were open for anyone to handle? Odd. Every gun store I've ever been to you have to request to see any firearm, meaning he would have had to hand them over before inquiring about their age.

    Huh?

    I've very seldom been to a gunstore, other than WalMart (which isn't really a gun store - just a place that sells guns), where I couldn't pick up and handle rifles and shotguns, including AR's, with out having to have them handed to me. Handguns are usually in a locked display case. Cabelas has new guns behind the counter, but lots of used ones on racks available to handle.

    Black rifles are on the racks just like hunting rifles. These weren't handguns near as I can tell from reading the article.
