Stupidity at Wal-Mart
#1
So my local Wallyworld got a shipment of 150 rd 62gr 556 for $65 @ box. I was hemming about getting some when some moron helped me with the decision: he was kneeling in front of the ammo case moaning that the 62gr rounds were armor piercing and illegal, Wal-Mart should be ashamed in selling it. So, I bought a box, commenting that I'd buy 3 boxes outright (Wal-Mart limit) if I had the extra cash. The manager let him know it's not illegal AND it's a big seller for Wal-Mart.

The stupid: they are around us......

Should have explained to him the difference between armor piercing and penetrator rounds.

Only pistol AP rounds are illegal. Rifle AP is fully legal.

Better a customer than an employee.

Once overheard a gun counter guy say "I don't know how we have these for sale because pistol grips on shotguns are illegal."

He was just not a gun person and probably repeating what he heard or saw. I've seen that level of ignorance at all levels and walks of life.
I can guarantee both you and I have made statements that somebody thought the same thing about.
Be careful the fall off that pedestal and be a hard one.

It's like when someone who doesn't know about cars make an asinine comment about mechanical repairs. Shrug

Not everyone knows everything, and a lot of people know wrong things. Shrug

Maybe the customer worked at a body shop and was afeared that spaceman was going to use the bullets to put in his own speed holes instead of paying him to do it?

The problem is, that when a group of people know wrong things (aka lib/progressive gun grabbers), they take comfort in their group-stupidity, then try to shove their P.O.V. on others.

Generally I agree, I make mistakes all the time - its almost like a hobby Whack But in this case, I didnt pass judgment on him, this guy removed all doubt. You just walk away....
