It is much worse with any of the following;

-the loudmouth is with a group of other leeches,
-if the store is pretty busy with all the workers tied up or only one clerk is behind the counter,
-or if the store is having any type of "limited stock" sale or anything similar where the time this douche is wasting, could cause you to miss out.
Going into a gun shop and have all the employees so busy chatting up someone that I can't get anyone's attention to look at a gun. So I leave, never to return. Phuque 'em.

Or how about when you go into a gun shop, and every employee on the floor is chatting up some woman who's shopping for her first gun? That pizzes me off beyond belief. Especially when you get someone's attention, but they still keep trying to drift back to the woman. Hello.... act like you've seen one naked before, son. Geez... she ain't even gotta be good looking either, just "passable" and they treat her like she's the queen of Sheba. I'd say throw her off on the oldest and most experienced gun guru in the shop, don't confuse her by giving her too much input by 8 people ranging from 21 to 90, all of whom want to be the "manliest man" and all of whom also act like they've never dipped a wick a day in their lives.

I've broken up such attempted gang bangs by pointing out the ring on the woman's finger and asking, "why don't you come back with your husband so he can help control these horndogs?" For some reason everyone turns a bright shade of red...

I know I wish I could get some of "pappys" guns. Even my great, great pappy's but I'm just a grandson. The guns I own are mine and started out new.
My peeve is those that don't do enough on maintaining the guns and being safe with all guns. Seen a fool at a range not acting "safe" once ... And getting crooks who think your gun is good enough to be grabbed in a robbery, an you 9 out 10 never see that gun again. Had a friend who was robbed. Lost most of his guns that were child locked an hidden. Never seen them again more than 8 years ago.

The local retired machinist, turned amateur gun smith, who has no manners at the range. He has a nasty habit of walking down range anytime he decides he wants to. Doesn't matter if others are still firing.

The Sheriff broke him of his worse habit of shooting whenever he wanted by arresting him five years ago. He was shooting when the kids in hunters ed were at the range for their range day. The instructor and a buddy were down range with the kids setting targets, and he started blazing away.

Someone working at the Range needs to put that Mo-Ron in his place....sometimes I think it's better when you and your spouse or a few friends go out like we were getting away from other folks, or just away from civilians...It really does make a difference..

I'm not so sure about "gat." That's what we called them back in the day. I don't use it often, but sometimes, for emphasis, I still use it.

Or a single round from a Glock into the gas tank of a fleeing vehicle causing an immediate fiery explosion that blows it 15 feet into the air and flips it upside down into a flaming pile of wreckage.
