I went onto a shop for a barrel upgrade, while it was happening the sales guy started talking about blasters in general… he started bagging out all the brands… JM, SKD, Well, all of 'em… said they were all rubbish.
Then he started hanging it on my blaster. His words… “You can’t polish a turd”.
When I asked him if any of the current gel pistols were any good, he said they were all crap and not worth buying. That got a weird look from his coworker behind the counter.
I said “I was thinking of pulling the pin on a Beretta 90Two, but on your recommendation I won’t bother now” got my blaster back and walked out. They blew a sale right there.
