There are so many "How did that happen's" in that video it defies logic.

We all "know" to clear a weapon before bringing it to a shop, dealer, friends house, or handing it off to another person.
Yet it happens all the time that there is a round in the chamber of a "empty" gun...HOW??

There is a video floating around of a gun shop that had a large , like 1 gal sized jar on the counter for collected rounds ejected from already "cleared empty" guns brought into the shop. As I remember it, the large jar was over half filled and it was only mid month...

Once and only once in a lot of years was I chastised for clearing a gun already cleared and handed to me.. At a Pawn Shop.
Him "Sir we do not allow a customer to cycle the actions or dry fire the firearms" "
ME "ah, ok Im not dry firing it, Im checking to make sure it is clear before handling the weapon"
Him "Sir I already did that, customers are not allowed to its just to dangerous"

Me: as I carefully place the gun on the counter and step back.. "That sir is the most insane policy i have ever heard of, it is unsafe, puts you in a libel position Id guess and in any case completely unacceptable to me that you would forbid a customer from practicing safe gun handling procedures .. DO NOT TOUCH that gun until I am safely outside the shop, as far as Im concerned it is a loaded weapon"

I was told some time later that clerk was let go, and what he was saying/doing was NOT managements position but his own..they simply had told clerks not to let customers dry fire, disassemble any guns, or excessively work the actions on any new guns for sale...
