It is very frustrating to witness this when its clear that the customer is new to guns and needs some constructive direction. Several time I have had to bit my tongue, when I knew what the customer was looking for to make a decision, and the counter person just did not give it to him. I too feel like if I ever needed a job I could be top salesman in a month at several stores I been too and watched how they deal with their customers.
The only place I've actually felt like someone wanted to sell me a gun was at TDS guns. Everywhere else is like what you've described.
