When going to a gun store there’s one thing that you need to know. It’s actually something that you need to know when going into any kind of store. It’s especially important for a gun store. You need to know that they are in business to make money, so you need to take the advice that they give you with a grain of salt.
Some gun shops are about making money
Before we begin, let me just say that I realize not all gun stores owners are just in it to make money. We are obviously not like that, but some stores put money before safe gun sale practices.
What we mean by that is they put making money before selling the most suitable gun to the customer. An example of that would be when the gun store owner is trying to sell a high powered rifle, even though the customer is new to guns, without much experience. That is NOT a good idea, and it’s done because high powered rifles are more expensive, have higher markups and can earn more money to the store owner.
Doing something like this is like recommending a newbie driver to drive a McLaren. Do not let yourself become convinced you need a rifle, when in reality a gun is probably more than you’ll be able to handle at first. That’s it for now. Until next time, all the best and stay safe.
