    I went to a gun shop in Minnetonka, MN. yesterday. As I was going in, I noticed a limo with a driver waiting patiently in the lot. I went in and heard a voice that is familiar to all of us. Out of respect for him I won't say who he was. I know that may sound like I am teasing you all but I don't feel right about outing him. He was on a first name basis with the crew. He had a big stack of gun books to purchase. I kept my distance and left him alone. I will say that I was floored when I saw who this man was. That is all I will say, other than he has my deepest respect for the body of work that he has done in his career. later

    Don't suppose it was John Browning or Sam Colt?? Or maybe the guy who played Moses.

    Let me guess it was Tom Seleck - If your in TN sometime there is a nice gun shop in the smith county area owned and run by Aaron Tippen he's very pro 2nd Ammendment and loves to shoot. I have learned to never be surprised about who I see in a shop now

    I run into Patrick Swasey, if that's the right spelling, frequently in a grocery store in Meridian, Mississippi.

    Was Moses in Minnesota?

    I'm confused as to why you are hiding his identity.

    Maybe it was Jane Fonda, and he was saying "he" to throw us off.

    The secret is out on Rosie

    No question about it. Rosie O'Donnell must be looking for a little home security.
    :D

    I got to wondering who would want to be in Minnetoka to begin with. Then it hit me! The person was not wanting to stand out. It was Osama!

    This was in a gun shop, right? No question, it had to be Sara "Give-me-your-guns" Brady, looking to build up her arsenal. :D

    movie stars and such are just people. I'm pretty sure they don't crap in tidy zip lock bags and they put their pants on one leg at a time. If he wanted to conceal his ID he'd ditched the limo, put on some glasses and a ball cap and went for it. It sounds like the drama WAS a statement.

    Who travels in limos anyway. The Governor has purchased weapons in my shop as well as the Lt. Governor. They were driving a Jeep Wagoneer and were accompanied by two state troopers in a Crown Victoria. I will stop short of saying what they took possession of.
    When Patrick goes to the grocery store he travels in a mid 90s four wheel drive Blazer and plays with kids.
    That dude in the limo must be someone important.
