    Just when you think they're all gone...

    Leaving the 'Dollar' store on Sanderio Rd yesterday. Woman: "Is that a real gun?" (1911 .45acp) Me: "Of course." She stands there... staring... open mouthed. Where do people carry non-real handguns in Arizona? Why do they ask?

    Helldorado ~ Tombstone, Arizona

    Just an observation: Bunches of guns... hundreds... loaded... openly carried without permits by both sexes who've been drinking to some extent or other. Cowboys, bikers, tourists... NOBODY IS SHOT! Nobody ever is. Nobody runs screaming into the streets at the sight of a 'gun'. Children...

    Watch the 'bystanders'
