Met that guy today. You all know that guy.

Had to pick up some more ammo at Walmart before going to the range.
It's walmart so it's busy. THAT GUY sees the targets and ammo in my bag and figured he'd tell me about all his vast knowledge on guns.
I'm stuck with this guy and trying to be nice. He asked where I was shooting and what I was shooting. Tried to be nice and just mentioned the Kimber, it being new and still breaking it in, and that got him going.
He explained about all the problems with Kimbers and how he needed something more dependable with more capacity that a 1911 particularly a Kimber.
I asked him what guns he owns. He has one Glock 17. I asked what gen and he said "9mm of course".
Why do I always get in conversations with these guys?
I told him 9mm is a great gen.

Ha! I just didn't want to engage this guy anymore than necessary.
This guy talked not stop for 15 minutes. He knew just enough to look stupid to a gun guy and impress an ain't never ever.

Can't get away from these guys fast enough.

What I always hate is going to the LGS and you know more than the salespeople.

One of the reasons that I buy my ammo and guns online. Our range is staffed by ex-military or retired cops so I trust them more than the staff at Wally World any day of the week. Our lgs here in town is named Denny Dennis and has been open for over 50 years and some of the salesman were there from the start so if I have question when I'm there I can be rest assured that it's the correct answer.

Just to make it clear, this guy was NOT a local. Out of state dude. More than likely from a non gun friendly state. (No accent and we got accents...Ha)

Except for Walmart, and rarely there, people here know guns.
