About 10 years ago, I walked into a Cabelas that was marked as 7mm mauser on the tag, the markings on the rifle said 7.92x57. Guessing when it was entered into the computer, someone thought it was 7x57. I didn't care at the time, it was a lightly sporterized Erfurt K98 in decent condition, and going out the door at a 100 bucks. Its just interesting to watch several salesmen look at it, not once noticing the wrong markings on the tag, all the while knowing better then them.
And if it was "lost"...........oops.
Exactly, you don't get to keep your ltc it gets confiscated.
And I repeat......."And if it was "lost"...........oops."
Yeah, LE never heard that one before.
Good catch! How big was the tag on the Cabela's? Did it obscure the sign?
No, not that I recall. Just your regular sale tag on the rifle. I have had that happen before at a gun show, mis lableing of a mil surp rifle. But I didn't think it would happen at Cabelas! Live and learn I guess.
I live in Texas and bought my last gun at Academy. No fuss about pre-checks or other garbage. Used the E-4473. They do tell you about gun safety via a packet they give you. Whole thing took about fifteen minutes.
I just support my local "Mom & Pop" guns stores. May not save any money but being friendly with them gets me a slight better deal if they get unusual used piece....
