Welcome To The Show

Yesterday a young man came into the pawn shop I work at and wanted to trade a Benelli Nova shot gun for a pistol. He first looked at the Beretta 92. He looked it over, pulled the magazine out, locked the slide back, dropped the slide release and then the show started. He thrust his arms out to full extension, drew his left leg back as if expecting some huge recoil, hunched his shoulders up and squinted down the barrel all with his finger on the trigger. What a sight!  He then asked to see a Smith and Wesson M&P.  Same drill, pull, drop, thrust, draw, hunch, squint and..boogerhook on the bang switch. It was all I could do to keep a straight face! I did ask him twice to keep his finger off the trigger. In the end he sold us the shotgun took the cash and started shopping, not for a gun but silver and electronics. He ended up walking out with a silver eagle and a little less cash for the planned gun purchase in his future. I hope he get it from us. I could use the entertainment.

What a dope!
You shoulda butt-stroked him with his own shotgun.
That woulda been funny.

He has been the "best" one to come in so far! I've only had one moron sweep me with the muzzle and I put a stop to that right quick. Told him that was the only "free" one he got.
