    This is Too Stupid to be Believed.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Just got a call from the shopping center owner where my new shop is going. One of the other tenants (female, beauty shop owner) apparently once knew somebody who was at a TG&Y Dept Store where some deranged dipstick took some hostages. This had to have been twenty years ago, because its been that long since there's been a TG&Y around here and because at the time, TG&Y sold guns and ammunition. Anyway, the story goes that some guy went into the store with his wife and they got into an argument. He goes to the sporting goods sections and asks the sales clerk about a rifle. While he is handling the rifle, he asks if he can see how the shells go in - so the clerk hands him some ammunition. And one of the people taken hostage was a friend of this beauty shop owner.

    So now the beauty shop owner is absolutely terrified that we'll be selling ammunition. She's OK with the guns - but not ammunition. The landlord actually asked me if I absolutely HAD to sell ammunition.....

    Man, I'm about ready to just say copulate it. With some notable exceptions, if women didn't have that little thing they sit on they'd have all been killed for bounty long ago.

    What a load of crap It would be nice to know if there has ever been any beauty shop killings to throw back at her.


    You know what they say. If it has ***s or wheels you will have problems with it.


    The bounty thing is pretty funny.

    So is the landlord backing off or still being a jerk?

    WTF?

    Okay, I can see where she might be apprehensive about a gun shop because of having been a hostage. But for crying out loud that was 20 years ago!!!

    I mean I've had guns held at my head and I'm not running around screaming - no guns, no guns, no guns!!!

    I do feel for you AntiqueDr - this is absolutely ridiculous!

    Yeah, back when I was in high school I saw one of the auto shop guys light off a bunch of lockers using a Zippo and a can of hair spray. Now I'm scared of tobacconists and hair care products.

    In fact, I'm so scared that I cant get out of my house. Agoraphobia rules my very existance. After watching Psycho I cant bear to go near the bathroom.

    So here I sit, rocking back forth in my adult diaper, moribund in my own waste, simply waiting to die. What a miserable way to live.

    Damn, I'm pissed.

    AD, the best thing you might try and do is educate her. One day sooner or later, you will have a confrontation with her. I guarantee you that right now most of her cliental already know about you and your future shop (gossip). Remember that she and her clients are voters and if you win her over, you'll also be winning over her customers.

    Talk to her about pepper spray that you carry and even give her some, maybe before long you'll have a few ladies with bad perms buying pepper spray from you. Cause once they are in your shop and meet you, maybe their fear will subside. Heck, they might even feel safer, sorta like living next to an officer.
    Good luck !!!!


    Oh yeah, The bounty thing was just too funny!!!!!

    After consulting the other tenants of the complex, the landlady has a 5-to-1 vote in FAVOR of the gun shop, with all its evil ammunition. The beauty shop lady was told to get a grip, or go pack sand.

    All systems go!

    It is gratifying to see that you will be located where logic is still practiced. Do any of the other outlets in the mall sell anything REALLY dangerous, such as alcohol or cigarettes? Do any of the others make a business of reducing their clients to the lowest common denominator, as do most beauty shop operators? Beauty shops don't sell beauty: they mere sell change. If a woman comes out of those places looking like she did when she went in, she got nothing except gossip for her money. Therefore, beauty shops alter the victim's crowning glory, usually for the worse. Keep America beautiful. Ban beauty shops! Keep America safe. Carry guns!

    Doc-
    Glad to here the smoke is clearing your way. Seems like
    that anything worth having takes a certain amount of
    bullsh*t you have to wade through. She's probably worried
    about HER customers ability to get a gun, after a bad
    Hair-do. Just step back, take a deep breath and smile
    at the ignorance and stupidity.

    You could have a display of those EAA polymer pistols in all the colors of the rainbow and advertise designer ladies guns. You could mach their purse, car, eyes or what ever. Cary some of the conceal carry purses…change your name to THE GUN BOTQUE………….NAAAA!!! If I wanted my wife to hang out in my garage, I’d heat it and put Berber carpeting in.
    Keep your head up and good luck!

    Now hold on there Rich in Lincoln. I'm a female and for one I'd have to have a designer gun (shudder). Give me a hard hitting rifle and I'm happy.

    As for the garage - that belongs to me. Mom has the house and I've got the garage (and all the tools) and the yard. Yippee!!!!!!!

    Oops!
    I’m sorry for the sexist comment TallTLynn. I just got a rash of s**t from my wife for that post also (man…I got no place to hide and just be a pig!). All kidding aside, I do believe that women are an untapped resource in gun sales! My wife and my sister in law are both hunters and I just gave my wife a custom rifle last night that I built for her (she’s only 4’11”). A lot of people think that the only women that like guns and hunting are okay, brutish, tomboys. That couldn’t be farther from the truth with my wife and her sister! They were both National champions in Synchronize swimming and are quite lady like, until they go into the field were their attitude is “ if their flying their dieing” and wack’em and stack’em”!

    Happy hunting!

    Hang in there Doc.

    Rich does that mean I have to take out the wall-to-wall in my garage?
