Gun shop etiquette is pretty straightforward, but some people can’t seem to get it. We all know one of “those guys.” The people who bring in rifles without a case, muzzle sweeps half the store while “inspecting” a firearm, or is generally a danger to employees or other customers.
Don’t be that guy.
Remember, just because you are at a gun store doesn’t mean you should forget about basic firearm safety. Each shop has its own rules of etiquette, which you should have already seen posted long before you reach the counter. While stores vary in terms of leniency, don’t be surprised if the store owner gives you a good tongue-lashing and escorts you off the premises if you break any of there rules.
It happens more often then you’d think. In this video, Top Guns gives a rundown on their experiences from the other side of the counter.
