Overheard at Booth 3: One Day at the Pawn Shop

I remember it was back in '92 or '93, this guy walks in a buys a Smith & Wesson .38 and two bullets.
Which was a bit weird, and he was kinda looking a little shady, but what the hell, you know.

Then when he leaves, about five minutes later, we hear this BANG! behind the shop, so we run out there and the guy's shot himself, right in the head, blood everywhere, and it wasn't like the movies at all where a guy kills himself and he's just slumped, no, this guy was still moving, like his arms were moving like he was grasping for something, like they were trying to separate themselves from his body and get out of there.  I'll never forget how his hand grabbed a handful of rocks and dirt and just held them real tight until finally letting go.

Never could understand why he bought TWO bullets though.

Maybe in case he missed with the first?  I dunno.
