Guy came in, dropped off his Glock complaining it was shooting 10" low at 15 yards after some night-sights were installed. Unfortunately I could not reproduce his problem, it seemed to hit the center of the target. ;)

I wish I had a dollar for every excuse, and likewise I'd like to know why I heel one shot out of the magazine every time I shoot for groups.

Yeah, that's every day I am at the range. I try to be blunt about it, but help people out at the same time. It's amazing what a tip or two can do for people when they listen. Generally I can get just about anyone to hit the center of the target as long as they listen. Sometimes they start shooting better than I do, which isn't saying a whole lot, but it's usually pretty exciting for them.

Sort of like the PEBKAC diagnosis in tech support (Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair). Or when supporting field technicians, the more far concise TIAI (Tech Is An Idiot).

EDIT ...and I see that I was slow the punch on PEBKAC, with no option to delete my post. Oh well.

I'll never forget when my sons were about 8, and Santa Dad gave them Red Ryder BB Guns for Christmas. I had set up a nice BB trap in the back yard next to a mound of compost wwe had there. After I helped them to understand sight to target alignment, trigger pull & the shoulder mount, they both started blazing away. Looked like someone went after the target with a no choked 12ga, from 25yards away. My oldest handed me the gun and said it was defective and he could not hit the broad side of a barn with it. I hung a new target and proceeded to form a smiley face around the bullseye with the bullseye as the nose. My son said "see dad you are worse than we are with the gun". I said nothing and proceeded to shoot out the bullseye, shot three clothespins off my wifes clothesline, much to her dismay, shot several pecans off the limb of one of my pecan trees and lastly shot three of the 4 pushpins holding the target to the frame. Both sons were amazed at just how accurate these guns were, as was I. Needless to say many a sparrow, grackle & crow lost their lives to those guns over the next few years. The boys, now men, have stored the guns for their children to learn on. What's amazing is that the store salesman tried to talk me out of the guns as they were "worthless" and a "waste of money" in his opinion.

We refer to people like that as DEU's or DAU's.

I'd have sold him an HK or 1911 as a trade :p

Should have told him it was set for "wound", then take it in the back for a few minutes (do nothing) then bring it back out and say, here, I reset it for "Kill"
