Yes; in their blatant stupidity.
I went through that during the one pistol I bought there. On top of the trigger locks, then after my purchase was complete; the guy asked if I wanted to dry fire the one I bought (which they’d brought down from somewhere else). I told him no; as I’d be doing some work on it anyway. I started to take the gun and leave, but he said I had to wait for a manager. She eventually showed up; to carry the package (gun) and escort me to the front door. When she gave me the package, I asked her why they did that. She said “so you can’t load it, then use it to rob us or shoot someone.” To which I replied “if I wanted to do that; I’d just use the loaded one I’m carrying now. It’s the same one I carry everywhere; including every time I come here.”

The look on her face was worth all their BS! 🤣🤣

Rick, which shop(s) are you referring to?
Crowder Bros. Hardware on SH Drive, and the gun shop on County Line Road.

My top choice is Ol’ Time Gun Shop on Hwy. 52, about a mile east of Little Road on the south side; in Pasco County.
No one can touch Mike’s selection, or prices. He has a wide ammo selection, too.

They got rid of the escort to the door deal here awhile ago, but the trigger locks remain.

Thanks Rick. I usually don’t go up North that way much. Have to take a ride over there. I tend to go to Reload in Tarpon for the range. I’ve bought a Glock from them, competitively priced I thought. Nice staff.

Don't forget to check Buds if you can't find what you want local, have a good night Gunner.
Yes , Thanks I have been looking there on & off for quite a while now . I came close , then My Wife kind of pushed for a low walk in shower . I understood her need , as the full tub was quite hard for her to negotiate . Then as Follows right below :

It was down to the bare studs , all tile removed & all the existing old plumbing replaced with their new style . Multi hand rails , built in soap dishes etc . It took [ 3 ] days to complete & now a 5' x 8' x 34" enclosure is done

The moral of this story : When you Contract 12 K for 18 months of payments , *My proposed [ $ 5-600 . ] handgun 'May' have to be put on the back burner for a few more months now . :unsure: :(:rolleyes:o_O:cry:(n)(n)

* HOWEVER , I have a Hidden Stash for That Purpose ;):love::LOL::cool:(y)(y) 'G'

Mike; if you’re referencing leather holsters, it may work OK.
I carry my Shield plus in a Panther Kydex OWB made for my PC Shield 9, and I also carry it in a Brommeland Max-Con V that’s made to fit my older M&P Compact (double stack).
Since it’s a leather IWB; it fits OK and is held securely enough.

I didn’t think of that at first, because it’s primarily my “when the back’s out bad” gun.


I thought that I put the Brommeland Gunleather link in my previous post; but it seems to have “gone away.”
Molded kydex is the only holster type I carry with anymore. I'm wondering if the 4"PC Shield Plus will fit in my 4" .45 PC Shield. It sounds as though it will be close enough for what it's for.

All sorts of folks recommend the SIG 365 X, with the long grip for us curmudgeons who want all three fingers on something solid. With the price at $700 or so, it doesn't look good compared to the smaller P365 Tac Pac for $500.

I should be carrying the Glock 21 but The Les Baer Commanche Custom Carry 45 will not leave my belt . Gunner you should give some thought to the Les Baer, you only live once and it is smoking fast out of the holster.

I've been using my M&P 9c for years. It has a life time warranty that I haven't had to use.

I agree with brownie though, the new M&P shield with additional capacity looks interesting. My co-worker took it to brownie's last class here in Florida and was drilling holes with it. It's just a hair bigger than the normal shield with greater ammo capacity. It's the best of all worlds.

I have an M&P 9C and never had any problem with it mag holds 12+1, and it's easy to hide. I have had mine for 10 years wear it every time I go to the doctor.
I carried one for several years. When I switched to centerline IWB from strong side carry, printing became an issue. Not insurmountable, but one more easily remedied with a narrower gun.
