No, not anything like that. I have yet to enter any of the local shops that didn't act stupid towards me because of my gender.
Just for laughs, I was wondering if any of you who have been to a gun store and/or gun show or work at a gun store have had interesting questions or actions with customers.
My girlfriend runs into the same thing alot. What really sets her off is if the sales guy only speaks to me about the gun. They also almost always start to hand the gun to me and I quickly tell them that they are not dealing with me but her. We did run into one incredibly dense guy at the gun show who just didn't seem to get it. SO she proceeded to make the poor guy feel like an idiot look at every gun in the case then leave. The other one tha sets her off is the that guns too big for you. She admits that it may be too big to carry but not too big to shoot. she likes her .44's and .45's.
As for good service at the gun shows look for Jim Jarret just ask for him at any of the tables most everyone will point you in the right direction. I know he goes to dale city,chantilly,richmond, etc. Kim had good luck with Rabbit Ridge as well.
Store wise in Richmond, try:
DeGoffs great service owners daughter-in-law works there as well so they don't have woman issues either. Askfor Neil(owner),Gray,Charlie or Joe, I think the ladies name is Tammy thats Joe's wife.
Dominion (they sell guns and have an indoor range and defense classes) Ask for Adam or Craig or Eric, all of these guys are professionals and Kim said she never had any issues even when going in there as a single woman before we met.
Greentop only bad thing is they like to automatically assume that this is your first gun so they try to point out .38 revolvers just immediately let them know what you are interested in and they get past that quick.at least they don't push the .22/.25/.32 crap for defense.
Man i think we must hang out in those places too much.
