So I'm looking at possible pistols for my wife at Academy. The guy behind the counter is showing me a couple of 380's then I tell him she has a Ruger LCP right now and doesn't like it, and the two he is showing me are real similar in feel, so I start looking at the revolvers and telling him how she really wants a S & W Ladysmith but I am hesitant because they are kinda pricy, so he is showing me the airweight, Nice gun but it was almost $700 too, he says yeah, thats because it has a laser, I say ok cool, thats the one thing she does like about the LCP, is that it has a laser, he says yeah, but that one has a switch, this one you just have to grip it, I say no there's not a switch, you just grip it and the laser comes on, he says, no sir you must be mistaken, they didn't make one for the LCP without on off switch, I start laughing and tell him I've owned it for 3 plus years, I know what it has, he says well then you have a one of a kind because they dont exist, I walked away laughing. (but I will admit when I got to the truck, I pulled that sucker out and looked, there is no on/of switch). "Know it all" people are stupid.

I don't have an Academy nearby. Went to one in Round Rock a few weeks back. Heard the counter guy telling some blabber BS to a guy looking at pistols. It was so entertaining I stood around for 30 minutes and listened to him bestow his wisdom.

I walk briskly past them on the way to the fishing section. It is always amazing to hear the kind of used car salesman type crap they spew on the way by. Local mom and pop gun shops are where you get good service.

I think one could do a skit and put all these types of stories together for SNL. A new character in the making: Sporting Good Store Gun Counter Guy.

Sporting Good Store Gun Counter Guy wears a collared knit polo-style short sleeve shirt, tacticool britches, and 'combat' boots. He looks over the counter suspiciously at every customer with a hand hovering just over his 'concealed' Desert Eagle. Sporting Good Store Gun Counter Guy speaks with a condescending tone and arrogant brashness that would make General Custer blush. grin

Sporting Good Store Gun Counter Guy tried to sell me a laser range finder/monocular because binoculars are essentially two rifle scopes hinged together. That is why sometimes you can have double vision when using binos. But, you do have to be careful as the laser can scare a deer off.

Why didn't you open carry it in and "edumacate" him? Then offer to sell it to him for 1k, since it is rare and all roflmao

Very disappointed to hear this. Listening to them talk, I thought Academy only hired ex-Navy Seals to man their gun counters. Figured those guys would know better... whistle

They probably make $9/hr. How much wisdom do you expect?

Academy, Cabela's, Gander Mountain, small local shops, gun range shops, area gun shows, and even on THF, the advice can be from excellent to evil....
