I knew who owned the gun and I HAD to pick it up. It belonged to one of the big dogs and he was breaking everything that came out of the house. If I could just hold it.....

As I raised the gun to my shoulder, a big hand reached up and removed it from my grasp. I turned and looked into two very cold eyes. "If I wanted to look at YOUR gun, I would ask," he said, then walked away.

It was embarrassing but I NEVER made that mistake again.

It's sort of like sitting on "the other guy's" motorcycle--it just ain't done, but I know what you mean about the temptation. I like to walk around at a meet and look at all the fancy iron and classy wood on display. It's hard to resist, but I only look, but don't touch, unless the owner is around and consent is given in advance. Shoot well!

I'm not a big gun, but I'd be pissed too if someone took hold of my trap gun(s). Ask stated, ask first.

What's worse is some neophyte banding his 870 barrel into my Perazzi rib while it sits in the gun rack.

I've had one person take my gun out and shoot it when he was called to his squad!!! Guy just wasn't paying attention.

Chango,,,,paint your stock pink and I bet they won't pick it up....:D :D

Sometimes the temptation is there,,,,but I have never had someone tell me no if I asked to handle their gun,,,,many of them will even let you shoot if you want if you show respect to them and their gun.

The wonderful part of being left handed. Someone asks if they can pick up my gun I say "Sure, but it's not going to fit you at all". And, if they were to pick it up by mistake, they would know as soon as they put it to their shoulder that they have the wrong gun (unless they're left handed of course). Josh

While standing at the line one sunny afternoon I noticed a few scratches and dings that were new to me on my gun. After the 3rd station I realized the Model 12 in my hands was not mine, but belonged to somebody else! Mine was still in the rack. At the end of the round I told the owner what happened and we both had a good laugh.

Mr. 12, that happened regularly at our club years ago when most shooters shot Model 12's, 870 Wingmasters and Browning Lightnings. Not so today with the wide range firearms now present on the line. Just chalk it up as a personal dummy one and move on!!
