Antonio's thread about the AD got me to thinking and contemplating about a consternation of mine.
When you're at a LGS requesting to look at a gun, does the clerk behind the counter clear the gun and lock the slide/bolt/action back or open the cylinder prior to handing it to you in a safe way or placing it on the counter in front of you?
Assuming the gun is without gun lock as some of the bigger stores have on their firearms.
It pisses the Hell out of me when a gun store clerk reaches into the counter or off the rack, retrieves the requested firearm and hands it to me muzzle first or without clearing the firearm in any way, shape, or form.
That's how folks get hurt or killed by accident!
So, whether cleared by the clerk or not, I first remove the magazine or open the cylinder and follow the proper clearing procedure for said firearm. Look at it as requested and, prior to handing it back butt first, I clear the gun again, lock the slide/bolt/action/cylinder and return it to the clerk. My clearing of the weapon upon receiving it or handing it back is for overall safety as well as everyone involved to have peace of mind that the weapon is clear and safe.
I've been in a gun store (working) when a gun (customer's) went off and it weren't pleasant.
Unfortunately, my LGS doesn't practice safe handling skills, though I've tried to teach them. Over........and over.........and over........
What are you all used too?
