“ I dated a girl once who’s dad pulled the shotgun trick on me. He didn’t expect that I actually know a thing or two about guns (thanks to MY dad). I walk in the room to meet mom and dad, he’s sitting there cleaning a shotgun. He stands up, stares me dead in the eye, real intimidating-like. I smile big and shake his hand, then say “Oh! Remington 870! 20 gauge? I was interested in buying one too. Synthetic stock , very nice. Must be the Marine version. May I see?” He stammers… “Uhhh, yeah, s-s-sure.” I cock it, open the chamber, shoulder it, hand it back to him. His mind was visually blown. U MAD DAD?
