Now I've seen pretty much everything....

So we're over in Big Rapids today and stopped at Wendy's for a chicken sammich...and this guy and his wife get up to leave, and low and behold, he's wearing a shotgun in a half-assed kydex holster on his belt. It's one of those pistol-gripped 870s with a two-round magazine tube and a fold-down handle where the forearm should be. Barrel is just a tad longer than the magazine cap. (I think we had a guy on the board that had a couple of them)....the thing is chromed.. The first thought that came to mind was...Holy Crap! what would be the effect of that thing being used in a crowded restaurant? Don't have a huge problem with folks toting around what they want to tote around, but this one struck me as somewhat strange...and my second thought was...I wonder if he has a tax stamp for that thing?

Should have asked him what choke he used, or would that have come under “long forcing cone” ?
My exact thought upon encountering a guy carrying a gold Desert Eagle (not sure if it was a .44 or a .50) at a local, very crowded, mexican joint. The hammer was down, which I guess would give me a bit of time to make the decision to either try to get out of the way or to put rounds into the moron, but still...
Yeah, but if he'd have looked like Rhi-Rhi, I'd've let him do whatever he wanted to.
I don't know, man...he'd still be a dude. He'd be HAWT...but he'd be a dude.

I'd rather have my sister work in a whorehouse than own another Taurus!
Meh....I'm okay with it.

Hey, I don't judge...just remember if you're spooning, the back spoon is always safest...:yikes::nono:
Ummmmm, yeah.....I was 3 when that one came out.
Local dirt bag....which is why I doubt there is a tax stamp connected with that firearm....or knowledge that a tax stamp is required...
No gunbuster signs at our Wendys...you're painting with a broad brush and consequently putting out erroneous information...
AND...Wendys is a franchise...different owners run their businesses the way THEY want to run them...
"NO CONCEALED WEAPONS"
It made me chuckle, if an off duty Police Officer walks in, do they tell him, no concealed firearms ?
This is at a used auto parts yard, not a you pull it, very snooty and over priced on everything, not a place I would do business with anyway....
Well, rules are rules...
And as everyone is fond of noting, concealed carry is just that, if you carry concealed, it is not likely many will know you carry.
Are you saying even off duty cops are above the law?
I agree that concealed means hidden from sight, and, for most people that means that the firearm doesn't exist...I was referring to the attitude of officers I have met that felt the carrying of guns should be left 'to professionals', and to other folks who think that way. If I can't have one, neither can they. If they can have one, so can I. Those types often refer to the old line "rules are rules" in order to justify their actions and deny those of others...I'm using the same line to beat them over the head.
Never did like prisons and detention centers much either.
