    I must be crazy. I started a part time job this week working behind the gun counter in a RK store. It must be like an addict working in a drug factory.
    I hope nobody buys one and commits a crime with it, my fingerprints are already on every gun in the store.
    Lots of Rugers to fondle.

    The main things I used to watch for were straw buys and felons asking how long before they could get a gun again.;)

    Biggest thing I got from working retail was you gotta be able to read people. After that it's just tolerating the stories and geniuses (on both sides of the counter). Remember, it's ok to say you don;t the answer to a question but it's never ok to just forget about the question. Always find out the answer for the next time it gets asked.

    Io did not purchase the gp100 pistol , the dealer had this on consignment for
    430.00 for it. My big interest was the 5 inch heavy barrel.

    22 shooter. Thanks guys.

    I have NEVER met so many gun experts as I have during this past week on my new job! I think there would be less paperwork for selling my kidneys than a gun in Illinois.

    ^Rural King. A straw buy (in simple terms) is buying a gun for someone (with thier money most if the time) who is prohibited from owning one.

    One of my jobs in the LGS I work in is to wipe down all firearms daily! Sounds to me like you aren't doing your job!

    paulruger, I did ask about that when I started and the only thing we do with a guns are, display, show, sell, and put away. also close bolts on AR's after showing. So, while I am doing my job requirements, I am still a little nervous about prints.

    I think my employer and I have a huge difference in the definition of "part-time". I never thought I would get tired of looking in the gun cases.

    Well that might be a good thing. You just might not feel the desire to buy more guns when you can fondle so many every day. The job might help you get and keep more money.

    See if you can get your boss to open up a range and you work there.

    ^^^ Ha, if he had to work at the range he would have to watch other people shoot, but wouldn't get to shoot for himself because he would be working! That would be real torture...

    The other downfall to working a range is hearing the bangs all day would be to much for me. Like working in a casino and hearing the ding- ding- ding all day long. Nope I would gladly work the counter.
