That reminds me, I was parked outside of a ____Tactical store a few weeks ago. I saw someone walk past my car who was open carrying a HiPoint in a nylon holster. I almost died laughing. I know open carry is legal in this state but if that's what he wants to carry then he should consider concealed.

Try teaching CCW classes, you would be amazed at what people bring in intending to use as a carry gun.

I do teach Ccdw classes and it is amazing. The usual characters are the guy with the pos antique c&r gun such as the 7.62 nagant cz52 etc. Then you have the lady who has never shot before and is scared of the gun. I had to stop one as her keltec would jump so much it ended up sweeping her head. Then the best is the blowhole who there is always at least one of in the class who talks a big game about his skills with a gun and must be the worst endowed in the class as he brings out the biggest cannon he can find to qualify with and usually shoots a pattern on his target.

On the knob creek I did notice the 500 last time I was there as well I believe he had extra ammo on the holster. You forgot you have to blouse your pants to really for in with the security fokes

Another good one is the little old lady that shows up with a S&W Airweight and a box of +p ammo that the gun shop sold her.  Most of the time they don't even have the hand strength to fire it DA, and when you show them how to fire it SA it kicks the crap out of them.  I live in a rural area so I also get a lot of farmers with single action .22s or rusty old .38s.  Not to mention the previously mentioned High-Points, Lorcens, ect.  I have yet to see a High-point make it through a entire mag without a malfunction.  I always have  Buckmark and a couple of 9mm Glocks on hand as loaners so they can at least get through the class.

 

I've seen some really cool stuff too though.  A elderly gentlemen, who has been a family friend for many years, brought in a 1911 his dad brought back from WWI.  It was manufactured in 1913 and to my untrained eye probably had about 75% of its original finish.  Of course it wasn't his carry gun, he brought it as a show and tell piece because he knew I would appreciate it.  We ran a couple of mags through it and it still shot great.  Another guy brought in a old S&W Triple Lock that, except for a little holster wear, looked brand new.  The action was like butter, they don't make them like that anymore.

From behind the counter.

 

Got a call phone a man trying to find his way to the shop. After the third go at "take the X exit, turn south and turn right at the next lights we are right on the corner. Big Red Building etc etc"

 

Finally he asked, "exactly where are you?."

 

Reply, "behind the counter on the phone!!"

 

He missed that completely.

 

He did actually get here.

I get a lot of hi points in my classes too.  I have yet to have one make it the 50 round course without crappy on itself.  Most of them get the point by the end of the day that they should get something else if they are serious about defending themselves.

The guy that set beside me in my carry class was a true "gangsta" he assured me. Was talking about how many caps he popped every night and how he needed to get a permit in case he got heat from the fuzz. He lived in the backwoods of TN and he assured me that there was tons of "banging" going on in his 1 red light town. He rented a 22 to test with because he was afraid they would link his gun back to some "G shit" he had done. He had it turned sideways when he shot and everything I had no doubt this guy was "solja" like he claimed. He shot the first 10 rounds and said that he was shooting so fast that the bullets were hitting each other in the barrel. Our instructor took the gun away and issued him a refund along with a business card for another instructor. I still get a good laugh out of it.

Just a question for the mods. Why is this not pinned? Just curious.
We are now in a target rich environment.
What do you mean by that?
We're surrounded.

I called my shots but no one answered. :)

At a local pawn shop the other day, I was looking at the pistols in the case along with some other guys. One gentleman was looking at a G22 or G23 (can't remember which) and noticed the hole in the frame behind the magwell.

  "There ain't anything that goes here?" he asks the clerk.

  "Nope. Well they make a plug, but I wouldn't advise using it."

  "Why not?" I ask, since I have a Zev Magwell on my Glock.

  "When the gun fires some of the air actually goes out that hole. If you put the plug in it, it can cause the gun to jam up. You can put one in there, but it can cause you some serious issues."

 

I didn't even try to enlighten the poor fool.

I was telling a buddy about the guns that showed up at a practice day, and mentioned that I shot a Glock 26 or 27 (little carry gun in .40) Didn't remember the model #. He says, "yep, that's the one that can go through the airport metal detector cause the barrel is made out of porcelain." No, wait. I'm pretty sure he's not an expert...

First of all what is debreese? secondly really? I'm gonna start a youtube show about proper surgery methods. Everyone is an expert.


Up until he shot me accidentally, it was very informative, very well laid out, he said of the class. I learned a lot. Then again, I was accidentally shot.
