I had one at work that is a grad student want some .22LR and some 10gauge shells. Ok I had to ask twice if he said 10 freakin gauge. He is from down south and doesn't have much up here, but down there he has an arsenal. I offered him a revolver but he refused for now, but he got .22LR and an MRE if he heads back home.
Another wants to borrow a handgun. I must have suggested he buy one so many times, sent links to good deals etc. I wish that as a family they took one less trip and spent the $400-500 on a gun. Long time friend so I have a hard time.
