Totally agree with this. Policy should be to not disclose what has been pulled. LCS owners have a business to run and can probably not afford to have dead product sitting on the shelf because no one wants "hitless" packs.

TRUE.

The more i think of it, asking the owner about "hits" is kinda like pack searching. If anyone is against pack searching, you should be against any form of unfair advantage.

Keep every thing fair. Just bust packs. no feeling, no questions,just pick and bust.

I think the lcs owners should not be asked this question. It puts the owner in a tough spot, because lying is obviously not a good thing, but neither is potentially losing money. It is a business after all. As a customer, I do not ask that question, but then again, I almost never buy single packs either.

Thanks for a lot of the info! Seems some people agree and disagree but in the end it is really a gray area.

Best bet is to establish a relationship get a feel for how the owner works and what not.

I would feel awkward asking about packs and what not just because it puts him in a weird situation.
