A few moths ago I was driving by a rather upscale gun shop, and when I looked in the parking lot there was a fellow on the pavement with a store employee sitting on top. At first I thought it was a class on how to do restraints, but then I noticed there were no students. Turns out a customer had asked to see a handgun, the clerk handed it over, and the fellow headed out the door. The clerk was holding the customer until the local cops could get there.
Now, when a customer asks to see a sidearm, the clerk locks the slide open and drops the magazine and hangs onto it before handing over the weapon.
I'm so glad I do not work in retail any more...

Wow... can't wait. I used to work in loss prevention so hopefully that will give me some sort of edge?

I know that if that mag drops out, that they are either just checking that mag release or they are up to no good. I have gotten good at hearing or seeing that finger hit the release. But if I take that same mag out of said gun before handing it over to the person they slap a fully loaded mag in and they have a hot pistol ready for action.
take my advice as you want, but this works for me

If you are looking for discounts on guns and ammo look at getting a job in the hunting department at sportsmans warehouse. After 90 days of employment you get six pro forms per year. Most companies do a really nice pro form some don't. You buy factory direct from the manufacturer at a steep discount. You can pro form one gun per company per year with a max of six pro forms. I bought 3 guns this way all below distributer cost. Ammo discount is decent, 10% off retail. I think there is a store in Phoenix if I remember correctly. Its no mom and pop, but you get to handle a lot of different guns and there are usually some knowledgeable people behind the counter.
To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.
