    There was a bit of confusion at the Ace Hardware in my home town this morning.


    When I had finished my shopping and was ready to pay for my purchases of gun power and bullets, the cashier said to me, "Strip down...facing me."


    Making a mental note to complain to our local newspaper about the gun registry people running amok, I did just as she had instructed.


    When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I found out that she was really telling me how to run my credit card through the reader!


    I have been asked to shop elsewhere in the future.

    They need to make their instructions to we senior folk a little clearer!

    My local ACE USED to sell ammo...

    Maybe ten years ago they had dozens of dusty ammo boxes filling shelves. I asked and the owner said "make me an offer."

    I think I paid $1 for 'small' boxes (22, pistol, etc.) and $3 for 'big' boxes (rifle). I bought it all.

    Filled the trunk of my car getting it home - and some of the back seat.

    Still get greif from friends because I have ammo in calibers that I don't have a firearm for...
