Me: "I want to buy a new carbine on the market made by JR Carbines."
Emplyees: "What do you want me to do about it."
Me: "Ok..." Looks around and Ted, the owner, isn't in.
Not the first time I've had this kind of conversation. Left out of the conversation because of the abrupt end: "... and I'm willing to put a deposit down on it, and I'm gonna need gunsmith services on it, and on services to fit a new threaded barrel in my 1911, and I'm gonna need advice on which of these fine suppressors you have in this display case that will fit on both and work the best." So that's a $700 gun, a $700 suppressor, and work for the gunsmith over there munching on a whopper and bs'ing with another employee, both of whom also too distracted to help me right then.
Why don't gunstores like to sell people stuff and provide a service that they essentially have a monopoly on? Oh, right, that 'monopoly' word. Well, this isn't the only gunstore in Maryland that can sell me a suppressor. I know they'd rather sell me an item they have in stock right then, but still. Money is money. I thought everyone liked money. That's why they call it "money."
