" Observing the cash wrap area and making a $1 purchase.
" Interacting with a Hunting Department associate to determine if he/she complies with firearm regulations .
" Filling out an online evaluation form, which contains Yes/No questions. There are no detailed narratives.

This just looks like some customer satisfaction survey? Do I get a prize for taking part?

^^ Not really.

This is a job assignment for a paid professional shopper.

It does look like a survey, or one of those "mystery shopper" programs, but why would they have their mystery shopper checking on firearms regulations? For that matter, how could they be sure that the MS would have a clue about firearms law?

From whence came this mysterious email?
I'm a lawyer, but I'm not your lawyer. If you need some honest-to-goodness legal advice, go buy some.

Or similar.

It's an interesting way to get your car serviced and make a few bucks now and then, or get a free meal and $15.00, or similar.

Not related to Law or Civil Rights. Not really related to guns. Nothing to do but....
