Not sure where this belongs so I put it here. I was at Kinseys outdoors Saturday morning with my daughter. We were browsing when and employee asked a gentleman about 6ft away if he could help him. The gentleman said "yes I need a holster for this". As he whips out what appears to be a ladysmith or similar. And twirls it. He continued walking with it in his hand twisting, twirling and messing with it. I watched the barrel spin from my feet to my head as he walked by. I immediately took my daughter and walked out. In hind site I wish I would have addressed it. While hunting I wouldn't hesitate to let someone know to watch there barrel. Even good friends. I am very good friends with a guy whom has never been invited back hunting do to barrel issues. So what would you have done. What should I have done. Store employee should have controlled it immediately in my opinion.

I think I would have addressed it right then and there. I know if several gun shops that have signs explaining that if you are going to sell a firearm, get it serviced, etc it needs to be unloaded and cased...ie no unholstering in the store unless there's a robbery going down. It's sad that signs like those need posted.

"Sir, do you mind not pointing that weapon at myself or anyone else?"

That being said, I've seen countless gun counter employees inadvertently point weapons at themselves and others. I just don't get that. Glad I was raised, and raised, differently.
