Here goes. Look in a local ad and they have HK USP40 for $459.99. Police trade 3 mags and night sights. The pic shows a gun with the safety lever on it. I call and ask if they had any set up for a lefty per chance. Guy says they have 6 and all were the same. Oh well. I find time to drive a half hour there anyway. The one in the case is a compact and is LEM. Huh I'm standing there and there is one salesperson and one customer looking at various guns. I wait my turn and ask the guy if in fact all the guns on question were the same. (full size lever turned into compact LEM) He goes back and comes back and says they have 12 and were all the same with one in hand that was 5 years newer production date. I ask if I could look at all the date codes at least and pic from the newer ones thinking the sights were newer. He says why not. Brings them out and we go through them. They all came in a cardboard box and all I was doing with the salesperson is open the box lift the gun up vertically and check the code. I had to teach him the codes btw but we were just chatting it up. He didn't care noe the other customer. Good guys btw. All of a sudden a guy comes out of the back loudly staing I can't check every single gun out and get fingerprints on them. Used police trades remember. I told him I'm getting one and was just getting the one I want. He says his customers don't want finger prints on their guns. Now the other customer stated he wasn't buying a gun today and fondled two higher dollar new guns. No problem there. I just said you lost a sale and walked out. I really wanted it due to price but that ticked me off. The rest of the big store had maybe 3 other people in it. Do you think I was asking or expecting too much? I did ask the salesperson before if it was ok and he said he didn't care. Other people have done it. Rant over. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
