There was a nice story the other day (okay, it was YESTERDAY-
I don’t remember which blog, sorry! Geez I’m old!) in the blogosphere regarding the set of questions from the TV interview show wherein it’s asked, “If there is a Heaven, what would you like St. Peter to say upon your arrival at the Pearly Gates?”
And the gunnie’s answer is “Open and show clear.”
Funny and cute.
Made me think of guns shops and gun shows.
I believe in the Four Rules, as recounted in this blog more than once. Ten years ago (that long, really?) when I was working part time in the gun store, I was shocked (and continue to be shocked) at the poor gun handling between salesperson and customer.
And, this doesn’t get any better at gun shows.
For all the rants in the blogosphere regarding safety, poor gun handling, accidents, ‘keep your booger hook off the bang switch’, The Four Rules, I’m continually amazed at alleged gun-educated folk in shows and stores NOT showing open and clear AND crossing people! AND putting their fingers on triggers! AND not pointing in a safe direction!
Lets not encourage unsafe behavior through laziness in the shop or the show. This is how accidents, bad press, injury and death happen.
