I kind of enjoyed my last walk to the car with my new pair of Marlins. The manager noticed my O2 bottle and had someone go get an electric cart for me. I got to ride as the manager chased along carrying my rifles. HEHEHE
A pleasant trip was had by all. Actually, he was pretty nice and we had a little good conversation along the way.
The "carry out the gun" is company policy and you would also have that policy if it was your store. Can you imagine how much it would cost you if you sold a firearm to some nut who started popping off people on the way out. Your liability would be unlimited.
Dicks walked me out with a purchase there too. No walk out at my LGS. All employees there have a loaded Firearm on their hip and they know how to use them. Get funny there in your 15 steps to the door and you probably will not be breathing very long. Different story in a big box store with hundreds of customers wandering around. If it bothers you, go to your LGS and cough up the extra bucks. Otherwise, be glad someone is carrying your gun to your car for you. Nice Service. Now, if I could only get them to carry all the other crap I buy there at the same time..........
