Hello all. I wanted to start a thread where people can put their experiences with people that have sold you a firearm and gave you bad information regarding that gun or about other firearm related info. Mine happened a few months after i turned 18, graduated high school and found myself a full time job. It was near the end of summer beginning of fall a few years ago and i saw that Dicks had a sale on their marlin 795's, I went in to purchase my first gun, (First and last gun i will purchase from them). I took my uncle with me as he has been into guns for a very long time and knew a lot more than i did. I'm up at the counter and looking at the rifle and checking it out and the sales clerk tries telling me that it has what is known as a "dry slide" that doesn't need to be lubed or oiled because of how it was designed. I immediately question him on this as i had never heard of this and also asked my uncle who was with me and he informed me that to his knowledge all guns need to be oiled or lubed. We tried to convince the guy working that he was wrong but he wouldn't have none of it. I sure hope that no other person that was new to guns followed that guys advice on how to take care of guns. That could to a very costly mistake. So guys/gals what are your stories about inexperienced firearms salesman whether it be a private sale or from a dealer.
