I say that I'm disappointed with a LGS but in truth I'm more saddened by the treatment I've received that only two times I've stopped at the gun store. The owner (or I assume he's the owner) has waited on me twice. The first about 3 months ago and he was extremely reluctant (I think I wrote about it in another thread) to take the time to show me handguns.
I was 'in the mood' and most likely would have walked out with a new weapon if he'd been anywhere near interested in showing me anything. He appeared very busy and even though I was the only one in the store he seemed distracted. I lost the vibe and thanked him and left after I looked at a couple guns.
Yesterday I happened to stop in because I needed to pick up some HP's in 9mm. He was very quick to offer assistance this time and I told him what I was looking for. He took me to the only hp in 9mm that he had in stock which was Federal Guard Dog Home Defense. I'd never seen these before and asked him about them.
He explained the premise of them being polymer filled JHP which would aid in expansion and load reliably. Seemed ok to me....but I asked if he had anything else as I'd never heard of these. He looked around and had nothing else in a hollow point. Here's where I lost faith in anything he said....and correct my thinking if he was telling the truth, but he went on to tell me how a lot of people wear light body armor and that these penetrate those. "Wow, really"? I asked, and then he went on to tell me how the cops hate this round.
BS detector went off. I thanked him and said I'd do some research. The research that I have done makes it look like a neat little round but not my first choice of carry round.
I'm thinking I'll steer totally clear of this shop unless somebody can direct me to something that says he's not full of it.
