No I'll intent meant in my post. Wasn't trying to make it seem like you were picking on pawpaw. Only posted that as a kind of "I second that" statement to give more clarity that the Law Enforcement series is not for LEO only anywhere that I have seen.
I'm sorry you had such a bad experience with the shop in question. Sounds more like the owners policy than Savage's.
"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." - Thomas Jefferson, 1776
