    Smaller, independent gun dealers usually have an experienced staff. The chain stores like Cabela's, Sportsmen's Warehouse, etc.. are going to tend to have less experienced people--many of them younger people who only have limited knowledge on ballistics, older model weapons, and such. In addition, salespeople are salespeople---they'll mislead a potential buyer just to convince the customer to buy something that may not be adequate or appropriate

    They just want you to buy something and leave.

    Depends on the store - small Mom and Pop shops may have a greater expertise than the guy from Garden Supplies who is filling in at the gun counter at Walmart.

    Sales people only know sales, looking for advice or information, you talk to the gunsmith.

    For the same reason car dealers do the same thing - to make a sale.

    Because the workers aren’t smart.

    Do they? How many gun stores have you been to? What makes you think you know more about guns than the people operating gun stores?

    You never mentioned what wrong information they are giving out.

      Robin, just give us a page or even a paragraph. If you`re meaning like Cabelas or Academy then that would be an obvious answer.
