What is your take:
I was in a local store today with intention of letting my daughter handle a small framed revolver and a small automatic trying to get some idea of which fit her better. She has put in her request for her graduation present and I need to narrow the choices down. I requested to see a small framed Smith & Wesson - the sales dude handed it to me and when I gave it to my daughter to see how it fit her hand the he said how old is she and snatched it from her hand. He went on then to berate me in an aggressive tone of voice saying I was breaking the law by letting her touch a pistol since she was under 21. When I tried to tell him I believed he was mistaken and new for a fact it wasn't illegal for her to touch a gun he became more aggressive and belligerent.
Having my daughter with me I simply left without letting him know where I thought he should put the pistol.
Any insight on this - I certainly have never had this happen before and she has fondled a lot of firearms in various stores.
I would also be interested in any recommendations on which small hand gun you prefer as well.
