When you keep every single little thing that comes with a pistol, including the plastic box, the paperwork, the casings in the envelope, the lock, etc.

Also, you debate whether or not to buy an old CETME for around 15 years solely because you happened to score 10 magazines for the thing for about $0.35/piece just before the Clinton Ban.

I walked into the LGS/sporting goods place and they were BUSY with fishermen/tourists.

The gun counter guy looks at me coming in the door and says,

"Country, good thing, can you help that guy at the guncounter with his rifle?"

The guy at the counter wasn't a real "gunny" type and had de-cocked a Mauser type bolt while it was out of his gun and thought that he had broken it. Brought it in to see if it could be "fixed".

30 seconds later he was a very happy camper and thanking everyone in sight. I got a free ice-cold Coke from the staff fridge and everyone was happy:supergrin:
