    never heard anything like this before

    Hi all ,

    I have just spoke to a chap who was going to be charged 10 per hour for a gundealer to advise him on what firearms he needs , is this normal practice.

    I can't believe anyone in their right mind would pay this. More to the point I can't understand why a gundealer would ask anyone to pay either - surely it's just good sales practice?

    Unless of course they know the customer already and he's a timewaster (and they just want to put him off).

    things must be very desperate to charge someone for verbal advice.

    To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

    On the surface this sounds very odd indeed, and is certainly not something I've ever heard about being done elsewhere. How many hours can it possibly take?

    On the other hand, if he's willing to put pen to paper it may help the guy if he has problems getting his Firearms department to give him the necessary slots on his FAC.

    The invoice should come to around 40p then!

    10 per hour for professional advice seems remarkably cheap, we really need to know the context. atb Tim
