    I should have known better....

    So here am on vacation with the family in Arizona and Iím asked if I want to drive the women into town. I tried not to answer hoping that would be an answer but they kept on. Not wanting to be a jerk I agreed. We get to town and I immediately break away and head for the cigar shop. Picked up a few stogies and started walking back to the vehicle and looked over to my right.....

    A gun shop. I figure the women folk are at least an hour out so I wander toward the store. I get to the front and there are old firearms parts in a dusty display and I figure this is just the type of place where I might find some hard to find gun that I never see at home.

    I wander through looking at the older rifles just to see what was in there. Then I looked up at the rifles hanging on the wall and there it was. Covered in dust, looking like no one has touched it in a year... a Remington 40X 22lr in excellent shape with Olympic sights. ďUgh...I should have never come in hereĒ. As Iím admiring it from afar one of the guys working the store comes over and says ďcan I show you anything?Ē He sees what Iím looking st then looks back at me and asks again with a little smirk on his face. He then turns back, grabs it and hands it to me. He walked off and return a moment later with a bore light for me to use.

    The price is good and after five more minutes of looking it over the worker comes back and tells me heís sure the owner has some wiggle room on it. I text two friends of mine who appreciate these rifles and neither are helping me to resist. I tell the worker I canít buy it since Iím a long way from home. He asks if my home state has a waiting period so I tell him no. He then proceeds to tell me that they can in fact sell it to me. I check with the airlines hoping they wonít allow me to bring it home, another fail. I text the wife in hopes sheíll suggest that I donít buy it and instead she tells me she would enjoy shooting it.

    I managed to leave the store without it but I donít think Iím gonna sleep tonight. My last hope is that I canít find a locking hard case to take it with me on the plane. I donít want to ship it for fear of it disappearing or getting damaged.


    Ugh....
    There's lots of ________ on here who don't fit your particular stereotype, smearing us with goofball sophistry is what is out of line. It just makes gunowners look like *******s.

    I can ship you a locking hard case. Wait, is that being helpful or not?

    They don't make them anymore like that for whatever you paid. You owe us pics and I'll volunteer a weekend on my range in Brown County if you'd like to come down and show it off. I have a couple of friends with the sporters of that model. Look THOSE prices up.

    Great find and a stellar job of humble bragging!

    Over the years I've had many more regrets about not buying guns than I have regrets about buying guns.

    Oh the dangers of entering a gun store! Sounds like a good vacation. I love Arizona gun stores. South west gun culture + dry, no rust, climate. Seeing how the Remington will hold its value and the wife is OK with the purchase Isay go for it.

    LOL. I saw the thread title and immediately thought "oh my, what did he get himself into THIS TIME".

    My friend, go back tomorrow and buy it.

    The only down side I can see is the hassle of the shipping process..

    Do you remember that chick in High School that liked you but you didn't ask her out and you've been kicking yourself over it every day since?

    You don't want to do that again, do you?
