    I was completely unaware of this.











    Glad I had my situational awareness ears on at the gunshop yesterday or I may have missed the veritable font of knowledge advising this woman about all of the potential ins and outs of carrying for self defense.

    Among the gems he shared with said woman were:

    You cannot carry reloads, it is a felony

    It is safe to just toss a jframe into your purse without holster if it is hammerless

    A two hour class will make you a certified killing mosheen

    You never need to practice shooting beyond 7 yards

    The pink grips on that jframe are dangerous, a criminal will think it's a toy and just take it from you

    Don't buy one with a hammer, if you shoot someone in single action they will arrest you under the "Hair Trigger" statute

    I picked up my new dies, paid on my layaways and got the hell out of there, who knows what else I may have learned if I stuck around.

    Before we begin to question the possibility of intelligent life 'out there', let’s determine whether or not any exists here, first, then move on. :)

    At first i thought this was a serious thread, then by the other "knowledge" that was being spread, I was soon :rofl:
    And I have no doubt it sounded just like this coming out of the mouth of the wise one there.

    Why is it that every person involved with selling guns, thinks they are a walking penal code book?

    I wouldve corrected him for gross statements like that. I wouldve felt like a jerk but i cant stand gunshop people who dont know anything.

    I remember back in the day I asked about a G34 in one gunshop and was told I better buy it now because Obama voted to have them banned!

    And at Gander mt:

    Yeah...you're not going to be able to buy ammo much longer because Obama is going to ban it.

    ...both of them saying it as if it were fact. I informed both of them that Obama voted for gun restrictions that came up while in the senate, but there was nothing that indicates what they're saying was true.

    Illegal? No, at least not in my state. A bad idea? Yes.

    I wouldn't try it. reloads are for practice. carry factory ammo for self defense.

    It is safe to just toss a jframe into your purse without holster if it is hammerless

    some states require a holster.

    Don't buy one with a hammer, if you shoot someone in single action they will arrest you under the "Hair Trigger" statute

    if you shoot someone, you may be detained/arrested while they investigate. whether or not you're charged will depend on the amount of force used, and whether or not it was justified.

    You should have asked what they would give you in trade for the Luger Hitler used to kill himself.

    I think he found a new "facepalm" pic and is proud of it. I have seen it in most of the threads I have looked at today.

    I would agree with this if he said it's felony stupid. I reloaded 9mm when I was shooting IPSC. I don't remember any squibs or duds in any of the ones I reloaded for my PT99AF. So my loading rate was 100% to the best of my memory, but I'm still not trusting reloads if the balloon goes up.
