I would say around 50 years old hes been there as long as I can remember. I agree and I know this store and area and guns of any kind are rarely bought and sold. They dont even have pellet guns on display you have to order them so i imagine training in that area is nil.

As i was saying to Zoo he has been around forever and is a full time worker but they dont deal in this kind of product it had to be ordered by the stores online catalog. I agree with you fully on what and where he should have tested it and trust me by his reaction he will not be doing that again just too bad it was the hard way lesson and being the holidays I can forgive knowing that is was an accident that wont be repeated.
Edit: He even said "I should have done this in the backroom"
