Sit! Sit!

Good boy.

Shit, man.

You crazy son of a bitch.

Harold, come on.


Holy shit, man.

Holy shit.

This fucking thing

took its head off!

Oh, Jesus.

Hold on, boy.

Hold on.

Hold on.

Hold on, Red.

- Dean, Ave Ludlow.

Got a question for you.

Hey there, Ave.


Do you ever carry

Browning Auto-5?

Don't stock the auto-5.

Never have.

You might want to try

Just Guns down on 95.

Just Guns.

All right, then.

How's that mangy cur

of yours holding up?

( chuckles )

He got himself

into a skunk last night.

Got any deals

on tomato juice?

I'll call Emma,

Tell her to set a case

aside for you.

Charge you wholesale

for it, okay?

Our noses

thank you both.

( shop bell rings )

( country music playing )

Can I help you?

I'd like to know if you

sold a Browning Auto-5

to a boy about 17, 18

years old maybe recently.

about yea high.

Thin, short blond hair,


You police?





Then why are you asking?

Let's just say

it's a private matter.

It's a private matter?

Sorry, we can't be dealing

in private matters here, friend.

The boy I'm looking for...

he used the Browning

against my dog.

He had no reason to.

I'm sorry to hear

that, mister.

But like I said.

Your dog...

He dead?

The boy shot him

in the head.

Check the ledger, Jimmy.

- Yeah, but--

- Check it.

Suppose he goes and shoots the kid.
