News from the gun shop...

I wish I had something interesting to talk about today's work in the gun shop.  It was slow.  TWO (2) background checks both for transfers.  P-r-e-t-t-y  d-a-r-n  s-l-o-w. 

I did have some Brits come by the shop with their American cousins (well, NOW they're Americans) who were taking them to the range.  They were amazed that they could look at, even TOUCH firearms.  Later the host returned with an I.A.C. Model 97 Trench Gun because it wouldn't fire.  It fires, I fired it.  Twice.  We think it is the Remington ammo he was using just wouldn't work in this gun.  Anyone else experienced this?  Also, I tightened up his butt stock as it was waving around like the Rose Bowl Queen's hand in the parade.  I don't think he had noticed. 

So, I have until the 18th to get my silhouette ducks in a row.  Fingers crossed.

I know my original Winchester 97 doesn't like the Winchester brand bulk shells. I haven't tried the Remingtons yet, but Federals work just fine.

I bought a box of Remington 00 buck lately and it was very difficult to get the rounds chambered. They fire though.
