A Muse.......or two.

Why is it that people who are obviously carrying on their right side hold their grocery or Christmas bags in their right hand?

Why do people place ads for used guns and accessories asking more than one could buy them new? Example: An Armslist ad for a used Kimber .22 conversion kit for $350.00. ?

A) Because they are right handed.
B) Cause there is a sucker born every minute.

A--I use both of my hands to carry my groceries up the lawn {40 yds} to my patio to save on the amount of trips. Away from here I try to keep my right hand free, but sometimes it can't be avoided.

B--I'm an Armslist addicted member. Nothing I see on there surprises me any longer. The market for a gun or anything is what someone is willing to pay for that product. Could you buy a gun cheaper ? Maybe, but, if the gun is new and I'm saving the $$$ on the tax and ffl fees that I won't be paying I usually take a good look at it and weigh the options.

Sorry but this made me think of a movie scene:

Mrs. Iron and I have an understanding. When we go out and are seated at a table, my right side faces the crowd, and her left side does the same. I'm left handed, and she's right. We can fight off attackers with our weak hands, while we can draw with our strong hands. Easy peasy.

By the same token, if we're walking along, we can hold hands--her left in my right. Free hands are free to draw.

So a more relevant question, Wingnut, is why would a right handed person even consider marrying another right handed person? It's crazy to enter into a homo-handed relationship when there are plenty of hetero options available?

Enjoy the rest of the long weekend, buddy, whether your Christmas shopping right handed, left handed, going to dinner, or just a long walk on the beach.

I've wondered about the first question. I carry a messenger bag every day. It used to be slung over my left shoulder and under my right arm. It's now reversed so my drawing hand is free.

Sorry I’m back late. There’s no right or wrong answer here, just some things I wonder about. I’m told that my brain is full of useless information. A lot.
Talk about a homo-handed relationship, I’m left handed and can do most everything equally well with either hand, hammering, power saws, painting, and while I shoot a rifle left handed I shoot a pistol with my right hand. Go figure.

As for gun pricing, I know a few guys who are looking for "clean" guns and gun parts.

They see something they need/want, find the owner, pay cash and walk off into the night.

Paranoia or prepping? I don't really know.

Answer One: My wife has me so loaded down that I'm using both arms and clutching a plastic bag in my teeth.
Answer Two: My wife has me so under her thumb, I have to buy online (at any cost) to keep her from knowing.
HA!
