Gun show

Recommended Posts

Went to a gun show today near where I live. And as we have all seen or done, people carrying guns for sale. Which I support, but this guy had a lever gun slung over his shoulder with his finger on the trigger the whole time. I'm sure they checked at the door that it was unloaded but it was unnerving to see. Anyone else ever run into this? It goes without saying I kept my eyes on him the whole time.

Probably a case of stupid instead of malicious intent. Some people never got properly trained. I would have got chewed out by my Dad and Papaw.

I have seen guys like this waving around loaded guns. Best to just avoid them and hope any accidents injure them not someone else.

Yeah I think you're right. And I too would have gotten my ears boxed for that. At least some people still train the young the right way. While I was there I heard a father instructing his son about this very thing. Too bad the guy with his finger on the trigger didn't hear him.
