    I went out today and did some price shopping on used glocks. I have never been into the many pawn shops that dot my city. I went in asked to look at the guns. I did the standard checks to see if they where not loaded. Then I did a check on all the safeties and dry fired them a few times. I've never owned a gun before but she remarked I knew a lot about guns. I said I read a lot. (I get great info here on glocktalk).

    I wrote down the gun prices and she asked why I wanted to write them down. I said I was price shopping before spending the money. She gave me a weird look and asked which store I was pricing them for! She thought I was pricing guns for a rival pawn shop! It was funny.

    I will never go in there again. There is a really good gun store where the guys know what they are talking about and don't stare at me like a criminal when I enter!

    Guess I don't understand. She asked a question and MISUNDERSTOOD your answer. (you THINK she THOUGHT you worked for another shop) So now you are upset???? Many stores do NOT allow price checking for other businesses. (they actually post it on door if you care to look) We are talking grocery stores/hardware.

    All pawn shops stare at you like you're a criminal. That's because they mostly deal with criminals every day. Unless they know you personally, chances are you're either a criminal or a lookie-loo. Either is unwanted to them.

    Think about your average pawn shop's general clientele, and her mindset might make more sense to you. In other news, sometimes sewers are full of poop.

    First time seeing that one?

    It still cracks me up, and I am way past the first time seeing it.

    That is true. Most pawnshops deal with thieves each and every day. They are supposed to loo at you funny. :wow:
