There are no studies to show that plexiglass is effective at reducing virus spread. In fact, it was never CDC recommendation.
Not only that, but the sanitizing business is based on that flu-oriented thinking that we were fed early on. Time alone will suffice. A day later there won't be enough live COVID-19 virus in the place to matter.

(although not likely back to the covid retard period where certain gun shops werent even allowing people in the shop without appointments etc).

When it comes to FS, appointments are much better than waiting an hour for your number to get called.

It really is amazing how much business that place does.

You do realize that in order to purchase a firearm or ammunition at ANY gun shop you have to present your FID/LTC which has your contact information?

Also if you pay with a debit or credit card they have all your data. Also most people don't shut off the tracking in their phone so they have that.

Bonus points if you can do it while having less than 5 bellies rub against you.

A virus is not a living organism. It's just a small structure that needs a HOST organism to attach itself to. Without a host, the virus just dies. I'm happy to see the public improve their sanitization technique, but it's just overboard and not evidence-based. Like f***face Fauci said: "it may make you feel more comfortable, but the mask really does nothing".

I think its stupid but, lets put it this way. It's the biggest shop by volume in MA with a business model focused around a stereotypical MA townie/LCD/boring gun buyer. Obvious outcome is obvious. Their average customers are likely far more sheepy and kareney than the "NES mean" as well as the profile of the shop etc. After a point "risk management" stuff comes into play, there is this perception (or reality?) that larger operations are going to face greater risks than smaller ones etc. I mean lets be honest- Say I own a small gun shop somewhere with a small but loyal customer base and I have a "f*** covidiocy" policy.... who do you think is going to get shut down first? Me or DTE? DTE is going to get clapped first because some libtard LTC holder (probably many of which every day walk through the doors at DTE) might shop there and go full karen and then rat/complain on them like a dirty snake. Meanwhile at my theoretical shop, one libtard a year might walk through the door. My risk is a lot lower than his, up front.

It's no different than during the gun shop lockdown where typical MA retail places like this were shut down but if "you knew a guy" you were still easily getting your transfers done
wether the state liked it or not. Places like DTE are not going to take that risk. It's just not in the cards.

I would be more shocked if bigs didn't do stuff like this, honestly thats how stereotypical this sort of risk management stuff has become. Look at the sig pro shop for
instance, at one point they had a goddam thermometer thing at the door and if your temp was too hot they barred you from entry. [rofl]

The bigger a thing gets the more business-ey and business-corporate-like-lard that goes on the pile and more irrational and touchy people are going to get about edge liability/risk management etc.

It's not just gun shops either- point of contrast, Remember during covidiocy early on when restauraunts were finally allowed to allow sit down dining again in some areas? While these
small and medium restauraunts were doing eat-in dining, big corpo types like McDoudenals and so on still had all their seating cordoned off or blocked and were doing take out
only. Someone obviously made a risk management calculation based on perceived or maybe wholly imagined risks to reach that kind of stupid outcome. This sort of thing
really isnt any different. If consumers dont like it they need to stay away from whatever the sector equivalent of Grizzlebees is... not exactly rocket science.

Some rando NES guy: "BUT MIKE!!! PEOPLE LOOOOVE GRIZZLEBEES!!!! WHY U HATE SO MUCH?"

Me: Not hating, just discussing reality. And for the Grizzlebees fan, im glad they like it. However, they just need to accept whatever BS comes with the
territory. Because Grizzlebees sure as hell ain't changing.

Disappointed. Read thru this whole post and not one “nipplehead” reference. [laugh]

Ar four seasons, someone was exposed. Not tested positive, not even having the slightest symptoms. Aand, there's a vaccine out. Yup, shut the whole place down. 👏

One of the employees there is close friend of mine. He had symptoms took the test and failed. He is isolating now. Looks like 4 or 5 people are positive. Offering to get his groceries and do a ding-dong ditch.

It's either a pandemic, or it isn't. If it IS, most of us can expect to GET it at some point.

The vaccines are quackery - they neither work nor are especially safe, thus violating the two long-established criteria for legit medicines versus medicine-show snake-oil preparations: safety and efficacy.

If it ISN'T a pandemic, then this entire exercise has been a fraud, and someone needs to be in front of the Hague. I nominate Tony Fauci.

The horror is when a love one,or a friend comes down with this and your worried if they are going to make it.
They need to attend to their health, ESPECIALLY immune health, which means SHUTTING OFF THE f***ING TEEVEENOOZ. READ SOME GODDAMNED RESEARCH PAPERS instead of relying on what you're being spoon-fed. We had a sick friend of the family - FULLY VACCINATED - who didn't, and that's why.

YOU'RE BEING LIED TO, TO FURTHER AN AGENDA. GET THAT THROUGH YOUR HUMAN SKULLS.

I never understood the hate myself. I’ve bought a few items from Carl. I got not complaints maybe cause I knew what I was looking for.
I have bought several and the guy was solid .
Even set aside a hot ticket item that was the last he had.
Told me if I could get there by 4:00 it would be in the back room with my name on it.
What else could you ask from the guy ?

Seriously? Three kids died of covid at ONE daycare center? Hmmmm....I'm sure THAT made the news, any links?
Look up the Project Veritas videos where they had the head of a nursing department at a major hospital wear a hidden cam and the administrator admitted on camera they had been told not to report and adverse vaccine reactions.
This shit is real and makes some third world shit holes look appealing.

Damn straight. Bought 2 nearly as you described. Wasn’t even bent over doing it when they were both crazy to find.
No problem with other purchases as well.
