Go fcuk yourself, loser! Public employees "on duty", doing personal shopping, is corruption. A business owner picking which 70-80 hours of a 168 hour week he chooses to work, is his business. If his customers don't like it, they can take their business elsewhere. Just like if a cop doesn't like Team Mobile's store policy, he can take his business elsewhere. What he can't do, is expect special treatment when not in the official execution of his duties.

But thanks for the guerilla marketing opportunity. Please check out the results of over 300 hours work spread over the last 6-8 weeks. I've finally gotten all 600 images (many of them new) correlated to 1200 individual SKUs. Still need to edit some text, but the store is good to go except for L1A1 parts kits, which I need to revisit. With some renderings taking up to 15 seconds between edits, and me being so brilliant (and having three monitors), I can edit items, print shipping labels, post on FAL files & facebook, and stream political commentary and books on tape, all at the same time. It's just once of the many facets of my awesomeness.

And if you like the WP/Woo platform, I've got a great developer for you - very reasonable prices (I think he underbid his side of the project by a lot!), and I have an awesome pro-gun/vet host in Texas with multiple servers for Windows or Linux. Not quite as inexpensive as hosting with the developer's company, but he's been awesome for years and loyalty is a two-way street. Been trying to get Jen to move the FalFiles server from Hillary's bathroom to Cognecy.

T. Mark told me to **** myself. Must have really got under your skin. Truth hurts.

Let me get this straight--you can pick and choose when to actually work on your customers projects or talk about your awesomeness on the internet, but if a cop chooses to use his lunch break to upgrade his phone he is "corrupt"? Wouldn't that also make you a corrupt gunsmith--one whose ego is so great, he can't stop his online addiction and rant about losing .89 to Midway USA for failure to follow basic instructions and opt out? Public servant or private gunsmith--both "for profit enterprises. Regaling the internet with your greatness while charging a customer for gunsmith work is theft. Your hypocrisy knows no bounds. T. Mark Graham, the self admitted corrupt gunsmith.

Yes, it does. And the "truth" is that cops not in the official execution of their duties, are just like the rest of their fellow citizens. And if an establishment is "no guns", they can either abide by the policy, take their business elsewhere, or be guilty of criminal trespass.

Yes.

Is he on-duty or not on duty? The article claimed he was on duty.

If he was off-duty, he can do anything any of his fellow citizens can do. And subject to the same restrictions. If he was "on duty" then he shouldn't be doing personal shopping. He should be doing the detective stuff his fellow citizens are paying him to do.

You are dumber than a box of rocks (that's been apparent for some time, but this is just another glaring example). No, that's not fair. You are either terminally stupid, or just lying (you are a professionally-trained liar after all, aren't you?).

I do not charge my customers to not work on their guns. Heck, without prior agreement, I do not charge my customers unless the outcome is successful.

But this "detective" is charging the citizens of his jurisdiction to pay him to shop for a personal cell phone. And I bet dollars to doughnuts, that this kind of bullshit is "normal" which suggests institutional corruption.

Or he's off-duty, and subject to the same rules that apply to everyone else.

Pick one. You can't have both. As much as your perception of being a special kind of snowflake may lead you to believe otherwise. Really, the detective's (and your) whining like a little bitch that you don't have special privileges, seems more the central issue here than a retailer making a stupid store policy and uniformly enforcing it - regardless of race, creed, color, sexual preference, or who signs their paycheck.

And yeah, I'm still screwing around on the computer. 14 hours today. Because I value my customers and decided that spending 4 hours a day processing orders manually, was inefficient. Spending 300 hours once, mostly "overtime" (for which I don't get paid), will reduce my admin time for years and allow me to process guns even faster.

I guess that's why I'd been in business for almost 30 years and still have to turn down 70% of requests for work. I'm just awesome that way.

Ummm no.

Marks a D-bag, but he's right on this one.
If he wants to work from 8-5 or from 5 to 3, or 10-2 and midnight to 4....
Same outcome

I liked writing reports from ~2100 to 0200. I was paid per task, so when and how much was all on me.

Umm...what?

He owns his own business. He charges for the work he does and people know the price for the work before they agree to the project. I assume his customers expect the work to be done the right way, at the promised time, for the promised price. Anything else is moot.

I fail to see the hypocrisy.

There is none - mp is just a disingenuous, spoiled child; who doesn't like anyone questioning a cop's behavior. Since he cannot provide a counterpoint using logic or reason, he resorts to the leftist tactic of attacking the one making the observation. He knows the attack is a lie, completely without merit. Sometimes he needs to be bitch-slapped by someone who sees right through his bullshit. It's really quite pathetic.

No - cops fckuing off while supposedly "on duty" give their departments a bad name. Actually, they give ALL cops a bad name. Because most people don't differentiate between jurisdictions.

Heck, a local town's cops were so corrupt the County Sheriff (Arpio, you may have heard of him) revoked their charter! And my friend who was an SO in MS, knew exactly what I what I was talking about when I mentioned the institutional corruption of Scottsdale PD ("No Nigger Zones"). He knew about it 2000 miles away! A friend of mine eventually sued them and won.

I'm an ignorant F--k?

It's "You're", you ignorant fcuk.

Really - it's not that hard.

your = belongs to you
you're = contraction of "you are"
yore = of a time long ago, old legends

And "foul-mouthed" should be hyphenated as a compound adjective, but I'd put that at Jr. High English and not mock most stupid Americans for screwing it up.

Aside Mark's irrational rants and 8th grade punk name calling, I do agree with him 100% that any establishment should have the right to refuse service to LEO, First Responders or Military. We will go elsewhere, there are no shortage of establishments who respect and support those who sacrifice to serve their community. No biggie.

When you are supposed to be a grown man, and you are less educated than an 8 or 9 year old 4th grader, anything you have to say will be considered in that light.

You have proven yourself to be an uneducated, illiterate, moron. So really, who gives a fcuk what you say?

My point is:
Um, not talking physical. Talking personality and demeanor. Latching onto and harping the way he has done about grammatical errors or oversight on a forum, in an era when most of us do not emphasize accuracy 100% of the time, is petty and ugly, small minded and an indicator of an angry personality.

Yeah and you use a bold font. I’m ugly on the inside just like the outside was what some kid told me. You really need to not worry about this shit so much. I have 6 nice bolt carrier groups and 4 kits worth of full rifels laying in a pile. I don’t like the kits.

I use a bold font because I cannot see all that well anymore. When I reread something I dont like to struggle with it.
