Suggesting customer didn't pay for an item when they did and showed receipt
I was in yesterday bought a powder trickler and a utility knife pouch paid the guy $6.00 cash. I don't remember if he gave me a receipt or not he gave me change. And I was on my way. On my way home I called Tom the owner back concerning a pistol I might be interested. We talked he gave me a price I said I will return next day and decide. Tom said oh you didn't paid for the powder trickler, I answer what do you mean I paid him and he gave me change. Check with him.
Today I came back in a long drive but I made it. My boy saw 2 action figure marked $10 I offer less. The good will sticker on it says $5.00 inlet it go I said you want me to pay for this and ammo all at once or pay now he reply you can pay altogether. I have patron this shop 28 years folks. Today I paid for ammo $90 toys $20 and $mis. $5 with cards. Only my way back to discuss pistol he grab my boys paid toy and started to ring it up I said it's paid for. My employee didn't ring you up for it. I showed him the receipts it's not itemized but the math was right $115 total. It's insulting for him to mentioned it yesterday about one transaction and today the same act. This is after I dropped over $1K + last summer. Either employee is incompetent or lost cash here and there turn this owner suspicious. Either way that's his management he have cameras and ways to monitor employees smart guy. I feel he owe me an apology a sincere apology as I have trusted and patron him and send many customers his way for years. I am very disappointed ☹ in his actions today. My son was upset that he suggested we did not pay for certain items! Stealing of sort!
"Explain why you're giving this rating. Reviews which are not constructive may be removed without notice"
My explanation is honest and true of yesterday experience owner (Tom) task is to check camera review his cash register tap from Thursday and see a $6.00 sales of a powder trickerler and a leatherman pouch. Items in question before suggesting customer did not pay. Any or worst case scenario employee did not ring up forget end of day till you should be extra $6.00. or perhaps no itemized receipts because of what ever business conduct. I will report to the state and see how they handle this business. When I managed 2 tobacco shops that's how I find mistakes or employee's theft!
Good place to have a chuckle if you need to burn time in the area.
They have a nice roto-tiller in the other room.
Over-priced, employees don't have a clue about what they are trying to sell you..and could care less.
I've stopped in there several times over the years, (mainly out of curiosity) but have never walked out with anything. Usually over-priced junk in the case. OK...it's not supposed to be a 5 star gun shop, but this place excels on the sleez-o-meter.
I went in there a few days ago because of the reader board that they have had sitting outsidefor days...
" Today only, 25% off all guns " I felt like a laugh.
As I anticipated, same garbage in the display case. Then the employee there tried to sell me a 3 gen S&W magazine calling it an M&P mag. I can't imagine why anyone would feel comfortable doing a transfer there, high service fee not withstanding.
I do get a benefit out of stopping in that place though...I've always noticed when my bottle of hand sanitizer is getting low ,
when I climb back into my truck to leave..
I live close and used to frequent them quite a bit. I've still been popping in here and there for the past year or two looking for deals like I always do, but their selection of guns and knives has diminished, and their prices are generally above what it cost new at local gunshops or online, or even higher than msrp. Not to mention that they jacked up their previously good transfer prices after transfers became mandatory. Oh, and they routinely sell knock off products like chinese Microtech rip-offs and advertise them as the real thing, and definitely rip some people off. I know, "buyer beware", but its actually illegal and in my opinion unethical. Shame because they used to be a great place
I reviewed 99 Pawn some time ago, with a fairly positive review. I just wanted to update this store based on an encounter I had with them last week. I am NOT giving them any of my business again, here is why (as I posted in another thread).
Their rate for a single gun transfer is now $70!!!
I was pissed Mostly at them, but also at myself for not checking ahead of time. I went ahead with it because I just wanted to get it done and get on with other things I needed to do. But I will tell you this, that POS rip off slimeball will never, ever get another penny of my money, ever again. I hope you all avoid them too. Treating gun owners like that is out of line and they should be shamed out of this practice. FAIR WARNING: DO NOT USE 99 PAWN ON MCLOUGHLIN!!
See more details of my review in the 'discussion' tab for this vendor.
***UPDATE 4/5/19: I'm updating my review. I sold a rifle and the buyer, who was paying the transfer, really wanted to use 99 Pawn, so I agreed to meet him there. I just wanted to note that they have reduced their fee for a private transfer to $40, which includes the BGC. I can still get better deals elsewhere, but it's good to see they brought it down by $30 over what it was a few years ago. Guy that helped us was very friendly. Just a heads-up that things have changed a bit.
I've done quite a few transfers here with good results. The cost of $15 + $10 for the background check is very competitive. Their price on their used guns is average or above average, so I've never bought from them.
