    At the gun store. A young East Indian couple was at a gun store buying their first gun it seems. It was apparent they knew little about firearms. So, they bought a Walther P22 with crappy Chinese-made laser. Price? $449 plus tax. Ouch. I wanted to pull them aside and say, get the Ruger 22/45 Mark III for $294 instead (which is still too much).

    They will eventually have buyers remorse on that one.

    Oh well, at least they got a gun. There have been a few raping bad deals I have passed on that I now wish I had bought. The Walther is a good little 22.

    I was kinda thinking the same thing if you're questioning the term being used for this example.


    I'm not particularly fond of that term as a description for anything other than it's 'suppose to be'. It's not very pretty and it can hit close to home for users and guests.

    I would politely request to everyone that this term not be used to describe some of the more general things we discuss in regards to being taken advantage of. It's one thing to severely overpay or get ripped off buying guns, toys and things we use. It's another to actually have a person force themselves on someone and take physical advantage of.

    :2cents:

    The mods are free to edit my title. Just an expression for me. No offense meant.

    I figured that would be your reply. Oh well, so much for decency.

    Don't sweat it. I shouldn't have said anything.
