I was at my local gun shop yesterday. There was a line of three gentlemen ahead of me and another guy walking around the store. He never brought anything to the counter and seemed to be “hanging out.”
The reason he made me nervous is a friend was buying 10 round Ruger mags and I said I didn’t need any since I had 20s. His ears perked up like he was taking note of what I said, so I quickly added “pre-ban, of course.”
I will be more careful what I say around strangers from now on.
Most likely a loner that is collecting a couple hundred or even several thousand license plate numbers hoping for a payday, or IRS exemptions, maybe a citizenship.
Just gathering info until the time that info is worth gold.
