I was in business with somebody and had a falling out. I wouldn't say anything bad about the other party regardless of what they say about me. I don't think it does any good to my reputation to try and tear down somebody else's. Much the opposite in fact. My former partner is now going out of business, there quality had dropped and the landowner is letting the lease run out (the rent was paid as a percentage of the gross income- and for some reason their sales had dropped.)

The LGS i work at is owned by 2 of the friendliest old farts you will ever meet. They never met a stranger...We have a small coffee bar / snack shop between the shop and the range, If they get you back there you could waste a whole day, and forget what you came in for.....LOL. Its hard to judge sometimes. Some people come in looking for advice, and others know what they want, or are just looking around, and dont want to be bothered. I usually greet everybody that comes in, introduce myself, and tell them if there is anything they want to see, or have ant questions to just yell for me. Im usually cleaning the rental guns, or working the register, or who knows what....... I would say 70% of the people that come in are regulars that already know me.

Maybe gun people just aren't good salesmen.

it's not just guns stores, but i have run across them in just about every type of business. some people just don't have good people skills and are not suited for selling to other people. some people just have poor manners as well.
