So I thought we need a thread about dumb stuff we have heard at the gun counter. I will start with a experience today.
Customer: I am looking for a gun for concealed carry
Clerk: Well here is a Ruger LCP
Customer: Well what caliber is it?
Clerk: Its a .380, you will never need more then a .380 for personal defense.
Clerk: Ya, its the same size bullet as a 9mm, 38 special, and 357, so there is really no difference between them. And besides, anytime you would need more then this LCP you should have a rifle.
Customer: huh. (looks closer at LCP)
Clerk: Ya, for example, if anyone tries to do a drive by on my house I will just pull out my AR-15 and shoot the gas tank, and then blow the car up.
Clerk: Ya I have memorized where the gas tanks are on all the common cars, just in case.
Customer: Well cool.
At this point I just facepalmed and walked away.
