Thanks Lima. I'm still relatively new to DC.com but I've become a fan of yours and appreciate your insight. Sure would like to have been there.
Be ready. You can't make an appointment for an emergency.
You need to write up some scenarios and get with some script writers. A TV sitcom about a woman who works in a gun shop would be much better than most of the things on TV right now. Not only that, you'd have a never ending source of material because there is no shortage of guys like this one.
I think Lima should write a book. I know that I would definately buy it. Good job Lima. Keep up the good work.
It's not what you go thru in life, but how well you go thru it.
It's odd that so many people consider gender, race, or social status to be more important than the person. Such wrong-headed thinking.
***? I don't get it. Why on earth do you have to disarm to work in this gun shop? You clearly have more training and knowledge than the average person. Is there anyone in this gun shop who does carry all the time, to act as some sort of security in case someone comes in trying to do harm or rob the place? And if there is, what's special about him/her, and why don't you qualify?
This is madness! I would have thought that any and every employee in a gun shop would carry--would be implored to carry--unless he or she was a total nincompoop.
It must be tough living on the east coast... In my area of the country, I have NEVER been inside a dedicated gunshop of any kind, size or shape where the staff were not armed. Some staff members may choose not to be armed, but I would say more than 2/3rds of the staff have a loaded pistol strapped on, either OC or Concealed.
You should come to the midwest... excluding Illinois of course.
No slight to you Illinois residents... Just a very anti-gun state.
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
I just love a limatunes post. Can't get enough of 'em.
And there is only one guy in the shop who has probably had more training than me (and I REALLY haven't had that much training). But this poor guy is pushing 80 and gets winded if he stands for too long. Very sweet old man and I'd rather have him on my side than any other person in that shop, but even he's not allowed to carry.

I just love your stories.

The first rule of gunfighting should be to know when the gunfight starts - being the last one to get the news certainly won't put the odds in your favor.

Put them on DVD's and I'm a buyer. Nice job.
