i bought a gun this summer so i had to hang around the counter for a while... there were two young men near, talking to a salesman about a handgun, one was very interested then decided he wanted it. his buddy was egging him on, convincing him he needed to buy it. the sales guy asked the kid if he had any reason that he thought he might be denied on the form. i've heard the counter guys ask people that before, i suppose they get a feeling about certain customers. this kid, anyway, starts hemming and hawing, and his friend blurts out, well you got cleared on that deal, i mean, that deal isn't on your record anymore, right? LOL!LOl! everyone in the store is now looking at these two and the dude with the, ahem, potential record gets quiet and says, i got to go home and make a call,,, i'll let you guys know later, can you hold that Shield? uhha... yeah, don't worry, i can hold it for you... the two guys walk out and the place blows up in laughter, the two counter guys are both retired cops... one says, it happens all the time... we won't see them back here.... they got to have a million stories.
