    Well, today was my first day at Outdoor America. Needless to say, it was overwhelming, exciting, and fun all at the same time. :)

    Spent the first hour/ hour+1/2 learning what to do with all the forms and such, what to check on the 4473 and all. Learned (and experienced) a lot of store policy, and had a heckuva lot of fun.

    Ended up selling a Glock G17 + Streamlight M3, a Kimber Custom Target II, a Benelli Legacy 20ga w/ a 24" bbl, a Ruger Blackhawk (I think... I was dismissed to go to lunch in the middle of the sale) and various accessories. Not too bad for a first day, I guess.

    Felt like I clocked in at 9:30, worked 45min, took lunch for a half hour, worked another 10min, and then we closed the store at 5:00. Needless to say, I've never enjoyed a job quite as much as this. :eek:

    Just thought I'd tell someone before I explode from excitement. :D Never thought my first professional gun sale would be a Glock, though. :scrutiny: :uhoh:

    Glad you're having fun. "Work' is a good thing when the time flies, hopefully, you won't get burned out on the Gomers and routine BS. It's a great opportunity to provide good service, share some knowledge, and make people happy. Illegitimi non carborumdum :evil:

    If it's not fun, you're in the wrong job.

    Well done!

    Congrats on the great day at work; but I'm afraid that as time goes on
    you will see the thrills and excitement vanish. :uhoh: Dealing with John
    Q. Public does have its thrills and excitement; but also may have lots
    of challenges. I wish the best for you, with continued success. Enjoy :D

    There will be customers that are conducting their own colonoscopy while in the gunshop, but the average customer should be a pleasant experience.

    I too like dealing with customers and helping them find what they want.
