back in the early 90's, I worked the gun counter at a SportingGoods store here in Shreveport. When someone needed something for their gun, we would have to come get it at the door, check it, and walk it in. This one time a guy brings his freshly bought pawnshop pistol in for a holster. He hands it to me at the door and tells me he just chambered a bullet. Being stupid at the time, without ejecting the magazine, I proceeded to pull the chamber back to eject the bullet. So you can see where this is going. When I ejected the bullet, it loaded a fresh bullet and now it is cocked. When the bullet ejected there was 3 yr old like 20 ft away that went for the bullet. So here I am holding a cocked pistol in one hand trying to keep a child from rushing at me. The store manager flipped out. We would have rifles come in needing scopes that were loaded all the time.
