Crazy Gun Nuts – There is Always One in the Crowd

You have probably seen it too, you are out at the range, your local gun shop, work etc. when you hear the wildest stories involving firearms. Most of the time I have to refrain myself from telling Mr. storyteller that he is flat out wrong. The stories go beyond being amusing and the most disgusting part is some people new to firearms may actually believe the stories.

I was at my local range yesterday and I was looking at the “for sale” board. Another member came up and asked if there was anything good and I said yes, there was a LNIB Ruger LCP for $200. He then proceeded to tell me how the LCP was junk and how it was extremely inaccurate. That is funny since I have owned two and I can easily hit center of mass at 50 feet with the LCP. This particular guy was a revolver fan so I guess he needed to down play semi-autos. After telling me how bad the LCP was he then proceeded to show me his gun collection – in his trunk. It was strange since he had a variety of firearms just laying in his trunk – no cases or protection of any kind. He even mentioned that the AR in his trunk could shoot 1/4 moa. I think if I had an AR that shot that well I would at least invest in a soft case. Needless to say, I took everything he told me with a grain of salt.

I tell this story to remind people that you should take everything you hear about firearms with a grain of salt. Do your research but do not fall into the trap of believing the first person you talk with. I try to make all my reviews on Youtube as subjective as possible. I have to pay for everything I buy and review so you do not have to worry about me being influenced.

This week I have a couple used shotguns for sale. I have a Browning BPS 12 gauge in camo that has a nice sling and fiber optic sights for $325. I also have a Mossberg 500a self defense type shotgun for $250. If you are looking for a handgun, I have a S&W M&P compact, TALO edition, in 9mm for $510 out the door. I just got in a Ruger LCR .38 special also. It is brand new and it is selling for $450 out the door.

Make sure you vote this week, our gun rights will be greatly influenced by this election. Be safe and be ready and thanks for reading the blog.
