    All machine guns are illegal unless you're LE or military :ugh:

    And when I told him you need to check out the ATF's webpage he was like, "The ATF just held a meeting for use last week"

    Yesterday a gun store counter jockey told me that she didn't like the Taurus 24/7 because, "It's basically just all polymer. Nothin' but polymer."

    Not tlike the XD I was holding in my hand...

    They are legal here though...

    He's also the one that told me you can't own a handgun if you're under 21, when in LA you can have it when you're 18.

    Also told me you had to have a concealed carry permit to open carry. Also incorrect...

    A friend was wanting a handgun and was going to purchase a Ruger. I went to the gun store to check them out and wanted to see a DA/SA one. The woman who tried to help me was like, "What is that?"

    I said, "The first shot is double-action and all following are single action"

    And she said, "What does that mean?"

    and I said, "You pull the trigger the first shot and it pulls the hammer back and then fires. Then the following shots it stays locked back and when you pull the trigger it just releases the hammer to fire"

    So she takes the gun. Pulls the trigger a couple times with it doing double-action, and then goes, "See, this one isn't DA/SA then because the hammer doesn't go back after it fires"

    :ugh:

    Just shows that all Police officers aren't 100% knowledgable on all laws. No one can, that's why they print books of laws for them to referance. Heck, my dad had been in law enforcement for 20 years and he had no idea that silencers were legal.

    Seriously, is he a friend of yours or something?

    Then he shouldn't get 'too' upset when you correct him and point out his mistake.
