    So I was in a gun shop buying a Glock 27 today in Lebanon, TN, and this man walks in while OCing. Goes to the man behind the counter and asked him how you eject the magazine from the firearm. He had a glock as well. The man shows him. The gentleman also asked if he has to have the magazine seperate from the pistol while OCing. The man behind the counter instructs him onit. So he leaves. I wanted to make sure I heard correctly. I asked the man behind the counter did that man ask how to eject the magazine from his glock. He said yes. I said and he was OCing? He says scary ain't it. I couldn't believe my eyes. People, please learn basic fire arm handling and operation before carrying a firearm.

    Yep, people do some crazy things when it comes to firearms...
    Freedom has a taste to those who fight and almost die, that the protected will never know.

    Something fishy about this post.

    1) A person from NC buying a handgun in TN? You traveled all the way from the
    EAst coast to Middle Tennessee to purchase a gun? Hmmm

    2) A Handgun CarryPermit (HCP) is require in TN (TN residents) to carry a loaded handgun (OC or CC). An eight hour handgun safety course is required to be takenbefore we can apply for the HCP. You'll be taught how to drop the mag from a simi auto if you don't already know how, in the course. We have to relaod our wepons 8 times during the range portion of the course.

    We would also be told waht the laws were concerning how to carry.

    If the guy asking how to drop the mag on his Glock was a TN resident, a)he probably didnt have a HCP, orb) he's been carrying revolvers for years and this is his first semi-auto or c) this story is just made up. (low post counts raise suspicion)

    wow, you all acting pretty serious. First of all I actually am a resident of Florida. I am stationed in NC in the Marines. My wife is a TN resident and from TN. I have been in Nashville for 5 months, my daugther was born here, just underwent her 5th open heart surgery. So that is what brings me to the area. My wife purchased the gun, her being the TN resident. I am an NRA Pistol Instructor, also since being here so long I became a TN CHP Instructor, although I have not instructed any seeing I need to be affiliated with a school. And as for the guy that didn't know how to eject the mag, I don't knowwhat his story was. I saw he OCing, and I saw him ask the questions, was just making an observation. AlsoI usually look at the amount of post people have made to see if their seasoned on here. I have been on here since like July of 08, have been ocing since November of 08. I just watch and read alot, don't speak alot. Hope this clears things up for yeahs.

    Wrong. You cannot buy and handgun outside your state of residence. You can buy a long gun, at least in Tennessee, without being a resident.

    Actually you may buy a handgunoutside of your State of residence. You may not take possesion immediately, it has to be sent to a FFL dealer in your State of residence.

    Scary. Maybe thats why they make glocks with no safety - for those without the mechanical ability to push a mag release button without a training class.

    low post counts has little to do with a HCP or experience with different models of handguns
