    I was looking around at some different cars yesterday and decided to go to Carmax to see what they had to offer.

    So I get into the doors and before I could say anything one of the salesmen pops out and starts with the whole " Is that a GUN?!:what:"

    I replied with "Yes, it is....why?"

    "Ohh you cant have that in here!!!!!!"

    So I left and was not very happy with him, but as I was leaving I heard him say "If you left it at home the fear would be gone!"

    I don't know.....my question is...Has anyone had a problem at Carmax?

    I have ODd every time I've been at CarMax without incident.

    I think that it might have been beneficial to ask to speak to the manager at that point. The salesman may have been expressing a personal view not consistent with policy.

    Ignorance masquerading as fear is a terrible thing.

    The manager was standing behind him not saying a word..... I really just left because I didnt like being in a business where they do not care about my rights.

    Which Carmax was this?

    When I am out and about I will make it a point to stop in there. Thinking about a newer truck anyway.

    Yeah!, I'm sorry I get W broad and Midlothian confused sometimes..it was the bigger one at Wbroad... and I just called them and that in fact was NOT the manager behind him. I spoke with a manager and they said it really depends on if the salesman is comfortable.

    I guess the salesman doesn't really care if he has food on his plate or not!

    So the manager is not managing very well is he/she?

    There's a new Carmax opening in Woodbridge (by Smokey Bones on the Parkway). I guess I'll have to go kick some tires.

    If you feel like taking a drive, check out Basic Auto Sales on rt. 1 in ashland. It's a few miles north of Greentop (yet another reason to head that way). I OC'd on all three of my visits there, the finance guy and I sat and talked guns for a while, and I wound up buying an 02 f-350. They usually have many trucks to choose from.
