...and much more!
I ran across this store quite by accident, and I have to say, they're fantastic. The staff is quite knowledgeable, and quick to answer any questions that you might have. They are located a little off the beaten path, but it's well worth the visit. Ammo availability is excellent, and they have a great selection of parts for those looking to build their own rifle. Highly recommended!
I went in to try and solve a firing issue about an hour before close. They went out of their way to fix the problem, free of charge, so I could go back out and shoot with my son the following morning. For that, I always chose to come here before looking anywhere else.
The owner is very friendly and helpful. Nice guy and the pricing was sometimes 10.00 less a pound for powder compared to other stores. Some bullets a couple dollars a box less too.
They too are having a hard time getting product right now
They also have lunch at 1pm to 2pm and close the store.
They did not have the powder I was looking for so the owner put me on a list and he will call me when it is in. Nobody else is doing that as far as I know as most if first come first serve and when you work that doesn't go well usually.
The only negative is they are closed 1pm to 2pm for lunch and I just happen to show in those hours and had to wait a bit.
Customer service, prices, selection, services, clean range
I started going into Independence since I moved from Oregon. This is an awesome, clean shop with great customer service and selection. Love the shooting range & the selection of rental firearms. Definitely fun shooting the 50cal there!
I had heard of this FFL, but for some reason had never been there. It is currently home based. There was a steady stream of customers that came in while I was there. Steve was helpful with every one of them. He answered all the questions everyone had, including mine. Glad to be able to do a transfer here. This FFL handles class 3 items as well. I will definitely be back and recommend others.
I took my Utah class with PDX arsenal CC. The class covers both Oregon and Utah during the same class and you can decide if you want one or both as options. Bryan Mumford is extremely well versed and does a great job teaching the class. His other trainers are equally well versed. I was so impressed with the concealed carry class that Bryan teaches that I have purchased the class for 4 other people in my family and recommended it to many more. They also offer training classes and live fire range training. This would be my first and only recommendation for someone wanting to get their concealed carry license for Oregon and or Utah.
I've seen people asking about where to get guns engraved, so I did my own research locally and found Portland laser engraving. I needed to get one nfa item engraved. I called and firearms are by appointment and while you wait. They were versed on ATF required specs, took the information I needed engraved and did it exactly like I asked while I waited. I would recommend them without hesitation. They offer lots of other, non gun, engraving options too.
Placed an online order for firearm pick up and it was fulfilled in about an hour. I was greeted nicely upon arrival and was able to get paperwork started quickly. Due to state check backed up- I had to return next day, but I appreciate the gentleman calling me before store opening to advise all was good.
I would suggestion if able to put the information that is emailed about the background checks/process- to put that in a FAQ section
