I would at least expect them to be smarter than to believe that the same humans that are busy bombing the crap out of each other are going to be nice and friendly to outsiders.
Its a good scene and a good episode, but as you say, I'd expect the aliens to not be that freakin' stupid. It'd probably be like "Did that primitive just shoot his puny weapon at our personal super-atomic forcefields? Ha! As if his ridiculous metal projectile could even hope to pierce or bio-regenerative omni silk robes, let alone the forcefield!"
Its actually a bit arrogant to think that aliens attempting contact wouldn't think to protect themselves from anything we might lob at them, especially handguns. Unless they are really stupid aliens...like dumber than pakleds aliens.
