Why are older "gun people" such absolute turds?

I'm 25 (look even younger) and I HATE having to interact with gun store workers. I have yet to talk to a single one who didn't talk to me like I was a fucking child who doesn't know a single thing about guns. I shit you not, one time I asked the guy to grab me a box of .40 from behind the counter and he told me I was "probably looking for nine."

There's a pretty fair amount of (older) gun enthusiasts at my work and it's the same shit.

What gives, oldfags?

Probably. 18-22 year olds have that "I'm an adult now, don't treat me like a kid! Oh, by the way I'm right about everything and everyone else is a moron," attitude, even though all of them act like little fucking children.

I was the same when I was that age, most everybody is. Nobody realizes just how childish and stupid they were until a decade later....if they ever do at all.

If you look like you know what you're doing people generally don't question it. Every time I go into the store I don't ask questions because I've already done my research at home. Make sure you know what you're going to say before opening your mouth. Speak with confidence in a loud clear tone. This method of gun shopping will work in 99% of cases, unless you're some shifty NEET looking fuck.

Sometimes I dress like a stereotypical slav from the 90s, and i get odd treatment at first.

But once they realize that im actually wanting to buy something, have a permit, and know a couple minor details about what i intend to buy, they ease up. Sometimes they presist with odd treatment until the background check goes through tho.

"Once the EHF BEE EYE says you've been a good boy!"

Then its all "here you go sir, and we have some ammo over there if youd like any".

Bit of a vicious cycle, that. It's taken hold here in NY. Crotchety old men scaring off potential newbies under the impression that new blood will 'ruin' the community, up until the point that all the old farts start to die off, leaving nobody left to defend their precious country club.

this is a pretty good possibility. when i was 16-17, going out with my mates smoking weed and drinking grog, my friends would always get pulled over by the cops, while they would smile at me and never feel the need to check me. why? because my friends wore graphic t-shirts with death metal logos on them and drove toyota corrola somethings with bodykits and rims more expensive then any other part on the car. Me? i drove my old mans car, a subaru outback and wore collared polo`s, khaki pants, and a jacket that looked like something your grandad would wear ( and it was, actually ). as long as my eyes werent TOO red and i didnt stagger drunkenly too much, i was never bothered. i also noticed that cars would always let me through, while my friends, no one ever gave them spaces in traffic.
What do you wear op?

ANYWAYS, dont you feel like todays kids are retards, op? the 12-16 demographic? well, thats what your parents felt like at your age, and thats what those kids will feel like in 15 more years. nothings changed, man. I only just switched from xp to win 7 a while ago, and i cant understand why people seem to be so fine with so obviously locking themselves into companies monopolies. 10 years from now, im sure those kids will be thinking "what do you mean your not sharing your oculus rifts collected data about what advertisments you looked at with advertisers, dont you only want to see what your interested in?", and ill be that grumpy old man sitting there wondering how it was ever acceptable at all

Wow this thread is full of fucking retarded pieces of shit that never leave the house. And suck everyone off.

OP i know exactly what you are talking about. I too dress absolutely normal (zero tattoos, zero piercings) i wear Levi jeans, some CATERPILLAR work boots, and plain white or black t shirt. I carry myself very professionally, no slouching, no mean mugging, just a normal keep to myself type of guy. And i get this SEEMINGLY only at gunstores, where I'm talked to like im some retarded hick. They ask me if I need anything in the rudest way possible, follow me around the store, and when i ask to see things behind the counter they act like its a HUGE fucking feat to just hand me a damn object. This has happened to me in NEW gunstores i never been in and at gunstores ive been visiting for a while. The ones i visit very often have calmed down a bit, they know i always come in to buy stuff so they aren't as rude as they used to be, but it is still there. There is some kind of "dick waving" thing that happens to gun owners and gun store clerks its weird. But its too much of a correlation between guns and pricks to be a coincidence.

A lot of you are telling OP to not dress like a slob, but I feel like I have the opposite problem. I live in Hickville, Missouri, and I feel like I get treated weird because I actually dress nice and talk like a normal person. I always feel weird going into my LGS because I'm typically the only one not wearing camo and muddy boots, and wearing a trucker cap. That's not to say I dress like some kind of fag from /fa/, but I've got a good job, and like to dress the part.

The guys behind the counter treat me like I'm some kind of retarded urbanite who's lost, or that I don't know what I'm talking about, even though I grew up in the country, hunting and target shooting. I can probably shoot as well, or better, than any of them. It's a real pain in the ass. Rednecks don't have a monopoly on firearm related knowledge. Just because I wear nice clothes and don't drive an F-150 doesn't mean I'm a clueless fucking liberal.

Here's what really happened
>work at gun store
>talking to coworker
>some NEET fuck walks up
>oh shit
>face is unshaven, my hair long and unkempt and he's wearing a graphical t-shirt and jeans that don't fit with skater shoes
>shuffles up to the counter
>pretend not to notice him and keep talking, hope he goes away
>"e-e-excuse m-me"
>try to ignore him
>"E-E-EXCUSE ME!"
>tell him to hold on
>pass a look to my coworker, we might have to kill this guy if he tries pulling anything, looks like he might be a fucking druggie
>he says in a shaky voice that he wants to see an m&p shield
>tell him I need to see some ID first
>take a look and hand it back
>clear the gun and hand it to him
>he starts fingerfucking the gun with greasy hands as he licks his lips staring blankly at the gun
>asks if he can dry fire it
>coworker says no because the fucker is creepy as shit
>he asks for another gun
>ask him if he wants to buy it (it's obvious this poor ass NEET isn't interested in buying shit)
>he shakily says "h-have a n-n-nice d-day..." in a mumbled voice
>the fucking freak shuffles out of the door scratching his ass

Old people are just cunts in general.

The car community is far, FAR worse when it comes to condescending curmudgeons.
