Not only is a great deal of this “How to Buy A Gun” video in slow-motion, it takes an Internet age for the NRA to get to the meat of the matter. “For me, buying a gun is months and months of research,” Hunter Jon “No Relation” Hickok reveals. I’m not sure he’s typical in that regard, but I’m certainly down with his assertion that “test driving” a gun is ideal. You know: try-before-you-buy. As some 3k people will do at the Texas Firearms Festival.
Where was I? Oh right. How you buy a gun? How much pre-purchase research is required, where do you do it, how much influence does your local gun store have on your decision, and do you test fire a gun before buying it? And just for fun, tell us about any examples of buyer’s remorse.
