Things You Hear in the Gun Store!

“Can I see that Hi-Point?” “Certainly.” The gun is cleared and placed on the counter. “Man, I know it isn’t an expensive pistol but the military using them in Iraq says a lot about their quality.” The man behind the counter, my friend. “Where is your 300 Blackout ammo?” “Over here, sir. It’s a really great round, I like it.” …
