Regarding Guns

Funny story, regarding California's gun laws......

After breaking up with a psycho loser about 10 years ago, I decided I needed a gun. Now I had shot many guns, but knew nothing of the laws, safety requirements, etc....

I marched myself down to my local gun shop, and found two old geezers behind the counter.

"I need a gun"

At which point I learned you couldn't just buy a gun, you had to take a safety test. I said "Ok, let me read the handbook"

"Are you sure you don't want a few days to read it before the test?"

"No, hand it over"

So I read the book, took the test, and geezer one said....

"Little lady, (at which point I thought great, I failed miserably and embarrassed myself in front of these two old men)...you are the first woman in the history of Flag Gun Shop to pass that test 100%"

I threw my arms up in the air and said "Woo hoo! Give me a gun!"

And then I learned about the 10 day wait, blah blah blah....

Life got in the way, and I never did buy that gun. But for a minute there, I felt like Annie Oakley!
