stopped by gander mountain yesterday and learned a few things

1) Adjustable gas blocks are designed to make the gun quieter

2) Twist rates determine accuracy. A 1 in 9 AR can only be accurate to 100-150 yards


I learned a lot

I thought you was trying to be serious for a second. I thought someone was going to have to drive over there and punch you in the neck.

Maybe you can adjust the FPS with an Adjustable Stock.

when the gun counter guy said that to another customer i looked at him with a bewildered look. After that he let me know that had a used CDL stainless for 1200...

Apparently berrata 391s can't work in cold weather...better let the duck hunters know that

also the gun counter guy has a cmmg sbr so he knows what he is talking about

He should sell me those defective Beretta 391 shotguns for cheap. I mean, since they're no good ...

Technically, isn't he at least somewhat correct about the twist rate, giving him the benefit of the doubt that he still would acknowledge concerns over heat, windage, scope and mounting options, barrel length and condition, barrel accessories, bullet weight, flinching, and Parkinson's disease?

Things I've learned from Gander Mountain:

If you wear a Gander Mountain shirt, you automatically are graced with the overwhelming knowledge of how to sound stupid every time you open your mouth.

You also know more than anyone and will tell the customer what you want them to hear instead of what is factual and may not lead to a sale.

The prices are higher than anyone else and getting any help takes an act of congress.

All of which ensure I don't step foot in Gander Mountain.

what scares me is

A) someone thought they were qualified for that job

B) People buy based of there information which is WIDELY wrong

C) people overpay at Gander

At least the stupidity at academy is priced right.
