    Spot on. The FFL holder has the LEGAL right to deny a sale for any reason period. No explanation required from the legal aspect. From the business side it does have ramification. Bartenders are in a very similar situation. If they overserve...

    I purchased an old lyman tool that cuts the fins into a foster slug. I'm thinking about modifying it so it swagged instead of cutting.

    Just a follow-up on this for those that are interested. Life isn't 100% black and white. If you believe it's a good idea to sell to people that appear to be scripted, unstable or unsafe I really don't know what to tell you other than you will...

    Lyman #45 was my first and like you the Speer #8 was my second purchased in late 71 or early 72. I've kept every manual I have ever owned with the exception the the two P.O. Ackley books. In the past Lee has had some beyond warm loads.

    Nope sounding scripted and coming back an hour later are two red flags. Just a guess but if she had completed the purchase on the first visit chances are good there would have been zero issues. We have cameras on the parking lot and a monitor to...

    Purchasing as a gift is 100% legal providing you are using your own money and the gift recipient is not a prohibited person. Again not taking Cabela's side but any doubt the sales person has on a firearm sale is enough to LEGALLY stop the sale. ...

    You would think she would also know the cooperate policy on suspected straw purchases. Interest in how the story stands up after cwtebay runs this by the manager.

    So since Speer made the #8 we should blindly follow it?????????? So you're a fool if you follow it and a fool if you don't? Interesting perspective.

    It depends what gun I am shooting. My Ruger LCP 380 is shot at 21 feet to 50 feet. My XP-100's are shot out to 500 yards. My bullseye guns are preferred at 50 yards but if 25 yard is all that is available that is what they are shot at.
