Excellent employee at Rural King today!

Postby Brian D. » Sun Apr 15, 2018 10:05 am

Won't say who, or which RK, to protect the identity of the innocent, as the "Dragnet" adage goes.

Was shopping for a left-handed holster that would fit my Ruger LCR 2" .38 special. As it happens, they had one marked for the Ruger SP-101, as well as 2" J frame S&W. 'Hmm, wonder if that will work for the LCR too, the holster is a leather/laminate IWB with retention screw for adjustment?'

Store had an LCR just like mine in the case. I called the clerk over, for once no other customers were nearby. Long story short, he violated the store's policy of not removing a trigger lock, so I could use the gun for test fitting. Told me he didn't agree with the rule, and his good common sense reasons why. (We can discuss that in this thread.)

The holster worked just fine by the way, it's mine now.

Hats off to my new young pal!

Well, Rural King can't fire ME for violating an employee policy. But I do understand what you're saying.

I've always thought that "Sorry, we can't remove the trigger lock so you can get a proper feel for the gun's handling, and controls, especially the trigger" must cause them to lose sales. My friends at the range today agreed; one of them said it led to he and his wife going elsewhere, even though RK had a better price.

When I worked the gun counter at Dunham’s I tried to use common sense and remove a trigger lock if I felt I was losing a sale. Cameras got me and was told I’d be let go the next time I was caught doing that. I only worked there 3 months because their policies and high prices for guns embarrassed me.

Dunhams lost a sale to me exactly because of that policy.
I haven't been back.
A wayfarer should not walk unarmed,
But have his weapons to hand:
He knows not when he may need a spear,
Or what menace meet on the road.

Your darn right, their prices are high, and the closest Dunham's to me, is in an anti carry mall, of all places.

With those two things going against 'em, it's a wonder they sell anything gun related.
