Default Prickly gun shop salesmen

I went into the store told them I'm a first time rifle owner and needed a kit to clean my gun. When I asked if he could show me how to clean it he just made a face and said there are instructions on the kit! Hah! Nothin on the kit helped me. Lol I muddled threw it and cleaned it. What is with these guys ?? They can't help a fellow gun owner or what!?! I just simply forgotten how to take the bolt out... I am very carful with my firearm and never have it loaded. Sheesh!! Why are they so prickly!?

Was it a mom & pop or a big chain?

You might check Youtube for disassembly vids, if you had much trouble. It has helped me out.

It was the store with the shooting range dont think it is a big chain. Looked like mom and pop but I could be wrong.

I know that to be true! I worked a camera store and I sold the most out of all the salesmen because I was good resource on cameras and what they could do and such. Hard to find these days!

I feel for you, Little John. As a person who needs some guidance when it comes to my guns, I know how frustrating it can be. Orangello is right, I've gotten through some 'experiences' with some great sights on the web. I have also found people here on this forum to be wonderful resources not only of information themselves, but they sure can point you in the right direction to find the information you need on the web.

Good luck to you.

Most of the shops seem to be double top secret clubs, and you're an outsider.

LittleJohn,I work part-time at a friends gun shop so I know first hand about dealing with people that are unfamiliar with firearms.

There's no excuse for the person giving you that kind of response,but who knows if he had a bad time with several previous customers before you arrived.He might have just reacted in a negative way from dealing with a total jackass before you.
I have done the same thing after having a customer that knew nothing about the gun they were interested in buying call me a liar to my face,and telling me,that I didn't know a damn thing about guns.

Don't let the persons negativity towards you ruin your gun shop dealings,sometimes people don't say or do the right things because others have already pissed them off.
