Re: New job in hunting sales
This spring I had money in hand, with my little heart set on a .338 RUM, as I went to the Bass Pro Outdoor World in Pontiac, MI (Detroit).
I saw none on the shelf, so I asked the older (60's) gun counter employee (not the one with spiked up hair and a eyebrow ring if they could order me a .338 RUM in a Model 700 LSS. The guy looked at me and said "you don't need one, a 30-30 will kill anything you want, besides do you know how much they kick?"
I personally know how much the 30-30 will kill and have respect for it, but when a customer asks you a specific question, do your best to answer it, and don't give your "expert opinion" unless asked.
That is why I don't shop at Bass Pro anymore. Actually never did before, but had a gift card to burn up.
just my 2 cents.
