:rant: i've read about various gun store owners being cantankerous, gruff, standoffish, and downright rude. here's a new one.
one of my local shops(www.guns4u.net) now has a new set of rules, effective 7-30-06.
if you haven't bought a certain number of guns, have a discount card already, or are there with a "member" it will cost you $50.00 per 1/2 hour to look at or talk guns.
of course $50.00 of that is refundable if you buy a gun within 5 days. what a crock of ....
needless to say he just lost 4 customers. me, the wife, my neighbor, and his son.
i keep hearing margins on new guns are low, but i hope no other dealers jump on this bandwagon. and people wonder why the gun crowd is generally looked down on by most, not all, people. how many other businesses charge just to browse? none i know of. rant off:rant:
