Silencers? Are those actually legal?

Hmm, probably a state-by-state thing...

California is one of the few states that does the "OH NOES! Bad Thing!" with mufflers and full-auto firearms. New York runs with a different, but similar, set of panic rules. Full auto just takes a federal permit/registration, where not outright prohibited.

Of course, the actual career criminals... don't really care about what the law says. It's more of a checklist of the things they SHOULD possess, really.

The only shopping I did that day was go to several liquor stores and get as many bottles of Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout as possible. Got over a case this year, and it tastes damn good.

I was actually really surprised that Black Friday was so quiet this year here, but a lot of the stores did everything online so there wasn't that much traffic in the actual stores.

I had the Friday off, the Wednesday before might be just be the first day I've been in where we had no sales -- a few browsers, but nobody buying. I know the store has had such days, but if I've been there for one it was years ago.

That weekend also saw the departure of the previous "new guy" -- nothing dramatic, but he wasn't engaging with customers and generally seemed unenthusiastic... the boss said he "wasn't bookstore material". He has immediately been replaced with a new "new guy", who's older and seems much more into the whole bookstore thing.
