The Truth About Guns has a story today that will just curl your hair.
A guy in the Norfolk, VA area wins an auction on Gunbroker.com for a HK USP Compact. He has his local gunshop send the FFL to the dealer in Arizona who then ships it to Virginia.
Couple days go by and I am just sitting here waiting for a phone call to go and pick it up. When I received the call I was talking to the owner of the receiving FFL.
Supposedly the shop that shipped it, packaged it fully loaded.
When they realized this it was too late. Inadvertently the employee that was inspecting it ended up shooting himself in the hand. So now my USP is sitting in evidence and there is going to be an investigation.
So now the guy’s recently purchased pistol is now impounded as evidence because of one fool shipping a loaded handgun and one fool forgetting that all guns are loaded.
Read the whole story at the link above. It also looks like MSNBC has picked up the story from WAVY-TV in Norfolk.
Remember all guns are loaded even if you don’t think they are.
