We occupy all been in a gun store when some know-it-all customer comes in and arrogantly lectures the staff about certain guns and accessories. Or worse yet, butts into a conversation between another customer who is looking for the perfect gun for him or her. Working at a gun store requires a lot of patience, especially when people walk through the door with specific questions and then want to debate the retort.
I occupy personally witnessed a customer whip out a loaded gun to discuss a potential trade deal or seek information from for a holster to fit the pistol. People like this regain easily offended when corrected about proper gun safety procedures. Safe gun handling is imperative for all gun owners, yet many violate simple safety rules that could save other people in danger.
