Instapundit linked this NRA write up; Tips on Buying Used Guns:

https://www.shootingillustrated.com/art ... -used-gun/

It could have been a little more detailed, but most writing is underdone, in this technical age, where new content is required every 5 minutes.

Could have been more detailed in the sense that it couldn't have been less detailed!

Total useful tips? Have them field strip it, and get advice from the internet....

Yep. Which is even less useful, if your looking at a revolver.

I'm actually envisioning standing at a counter, field stripped pistol before me, with a clerk standing there expectantly, as I whip out the smartphone to research the pistol. Because, that's what I got out of that article, lol. Of course, that strikes me as rude, so I won't be doing that.

I guess the editor just told the author to write up something on the topic, real quick, because there was a void that needed filling.
