Today I was in Illinois at a reputable police supply store picking up some uniform pants and decided to peruse the gun counter while I waited. I had purchased my Glock 21C NIB back in 2003 from this same dealer. While looking around (trying to bum a free Glock poster which I did get) a lost-looking fellow wandered to the counter and asked to see a Sig Mosquito. The sales guy got it out for him and the lost-guy asked about it. The salesman informed him it was a .22 Sig. The guy, who obviously knew nothing about firearms, asked if that was good enough for home defense. The clerk told him not really and that maybe he'd like to look at a bigger 229 or something. The guy informed the salesman that he was on a tight $300 budget. He explained that a local LEO friend of his told him to go to this place and find something for home defense. He further explained that his prior firearms had been an off-brand semi-auto and that it "broke" and couldn't be fixed. He couldn't even remember what it was. The salesman is a pretty good dude, so he took him to the end of the counter and showed him a pre-owned Glock 22. It was well-worn but had nightsites (albeit dim) and was in pretty great shape on the inside. I showed the guy how to field strip the gun and basically told him that was a great pistol to have. They dickered but he got out the door with it for $300. Price might have been a tad high but hey, it's a Glock. It won't need replaced, that's for sure. I felt good about guiding a lost sheep to the right pistol. The guy was pretty leery just from a complete lack of experience. I told him that if he never bought another gun in his life, that he would be well served by his new purchase.
