Things you Hear in the Gun Store: Weekend Dump Edition

“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.”

“Yeah, its awesome you can shoot it in 5.56 uppers.”

That is how you frag your AR…

“I don’t understand this question.” *Referring to a 4473

“Oh, no problem. It’s asking the city and state you were born in.”

“I don’t know. I was born on an airbase.”

“Where was the airbase?”

*City, State


And the final one from, this from a gun store owner.

“This 75 grain T.A.P. from Hornady is good stuff, it’ll really show you what a rifle can do.”

“Perfect, I only have 1:7 (rifling twist) 5.56mm guns.”

“No, you’ll want 55 grain then. But this is still really good stuff.”

“Actual” footage of the owner *dramatized
