Triumph, you work at a pawn shop? Awesome!
Steel City Pawn closed down a few years back, but for a while it was the ONLY business that was open in an old mill section of Pittsburgh. I had the worst job ever delivering food for no tips to what looked like abandoned houses, so I made the trip worthwhile by stopping in at the pawn shop each trip (that would have made me employee of the month with what other people were doing, as though anyone was keeping track).
Apparently, when a neighborhood falls apart there is suddenly a huge trade in expensive guitars, knives, and weird guns.
I remember that Steel City Pawn had a semi-automatic "starter pistol" that held six .22 rounds and was about the size of a Zippo lighter. I think the barrel was plugged at some point, but then someone drilled it out - smooth bore, no rifling. That would be a hand-held bullet-setting-off device; I wouldn't have trusted myself not to shoot off part of the hand holding it, and I can't believe they were actually legally allowed to sell these.
So, yeah, jacked AJ's post, sorry. It's okay, he's probably off on a ped chasing some kids while waving a toy light-saber.
