This guy makes some very good points, in fact this is one of the best videos concerning gun shops and salespeople I’ve ever seen.
Around here, it’s the Fan Boy in the shops and they’re all about Glocks. I’m sorry, but I won’t own a fucking Glock – they’re not the style I’m used to, the grip angle is all wrong for me, and they’re butt ugly. Yet it seems like every gunshop I go into, the salesmen/women are all wearing Glock shirts and hats and they always try to steer the conversation back to Glocks. At that point, I walk out.
Hey, I’ve been shooting all my life, I’ve tried several different types of firearms and when I go to buy a gun, I do my research first. My mind is pretty much made up what I want before I ever step foot in a shop – the last thing I want or need is some fucking kid telling me what I need to buy. Go ahead and make your suggestion – I’ll listen to it and take it into consideration – but don’t try to convince me to buy something I’m not comfortable with.
One quick thing about my commentary – I really really really don’t want to hear about how great Glocks are. Comment on the content of the video if you want, but to be honest with you, I’m tired about hearing about Glocks. If you like them and shoot well with them, that’s fine. I don’t like them.
