There are three types of people who deal NFA:
1. The type that do it as a side job or hobby and have a another career where they make the majority of their income.
2. The type that don't need to work because they have enough money to live off of.
3. A combination of 1 and 2.
If an NFA dealer acts like he doesn't need your business, thats because he doesn't. Dealing this stuff usually cannot support yourself entirely.
So..this validates this Cal guy in acting like a prick when someone walks in?
I don't think so. it's pretty simple-
If he does not like dealing with people, then he can-
1. Close his shop.
2. Make it by "Appointment Only".
This sport/hobby, does not need more "High and Mighty" dealers that find it distasteful in dealing with people.
I saw that first hand at a local dealer, Kiesler's. They act like you are bothering them, when you ask them something. Hence why it's been nearly a year since I have been in there.
It this kind of attitude that has driven me away from 99% of dealers and do only FTF transactions.
Granted you can't do that with NFA items, but then again, I'm not interested in NFA stuff.
I can find stuff cheaper, from friendlier people, like ACME Sports in Seymour, Indiana.
