Default Gun or hunting " pro" ?

Just when you think you' ve seen and heard it all..... I went down to the local gun shop last Saturday to pick up a couple boxes of ammo and as I go in, I notice in the corner was one young fellow (maybe 30) talking guns & hunting to a bunch of the younger boys (12-20). Maybe half a dozen of these boys. As I look and listen, I hear him going on and on about his new website and that he' s a gun/hunting pro. Well, the owner is a good friend of mine, so I quietly ask about what' s going on. " He just wandered in a couple hours ago and started talking to a bunch of the customers.... claims he' s some hunting pro, so all the kids are asking him all kinds of questions," says Bob. Well, apparently he DOES have a website & considers himself a gun pro, but my question is.... what makes somebody a pro? Now, I' m old enough to be that fellow' s daddy myself, probably done ten times the hunting and shooting as well, so am I a " gun-pro." Okay, I don' t have a website!!! Problem is though, all jokes aside, that this guy was telling these youngsters all about the new 300 mags and that if they had a 300 ultra, that' s the only gun they' d ever need (maybe true, but can you imagine a 13 year old shooting a 300 ultra??). Shouldn' t a " pro" give better advice than that?Anyway, this " pro" apparently has turned up in other shops in the area as well. I guess my question or observation is.... if we have a website are we all gun pros????? Sorry for the long post, but this may be the most asinine thing I' ve ever heard.

Being a " pro " is relative. Back in the caveman days, the guy who could sling his spear at 90fps and hit a small critter would be a pro. If you surround yourself with those who know less about a particular subject, you' ll be the pro in the crowd.

I suppose if he makes money from sponsors or subscribers of his website, that would make him a pro at running a website on guns and hunting though doubtfully a pro on guns and hunting- its all in the semantics. [>:]

In the land of the blind, the man with one eye is king.

Take him to the range, and see how he does off the bench and off hand. It may be an interesting day. Good luck.
