Blast From The Past - Owner Melt Down On Rifle Inquiry
Had some decent deals and selections back in the day.
Lots of better places much closer to where I live.
Owner became unhinged when I asked about Mini-14's.
Not allowed to give negative stars
Warning: Necroreview from the 1980's. Just posting to let folks know their reputation has been earned consistently over the years. I frankly don't know how they have stayed in business.
Was a repeat customer in the late 80's and on a friendly basis. Bought an amazing used Redhawk with an excellent trigger job, a Taurus PT-99 when nobody has semi 9mm's in stock, and my treasured Browning A-Bolt 22. Bought a lot of reloading supplies there as well. Thought it was a decent place, then...
One day I inquired about a Ruger Mini-14. You would have thought the world ended. Dude yelled at me about playing army and running around in the woods shooting indiscriminately until I finally told him he needed medication, left, and never came back.
First and foremost, the counter staff. Horrible. Prices also horrible. I could go on and on...
Deplorable is the best word I can use. I went here once in the 90s and thought it was a joke then, both in terms of high prices and extremely bad service, so never went back. Took my son there on a whim while in the neighborhood and, sure enough, just as bad now as it ever was. It's comical that a handful of people actually give this place good reviews on Yelp, but I have to conclude that those are either fake reviews or written by world-class masochists. The incredibly arrogant, rude, condescending, and pissy attitude of the people working in this store seems based on the presumption that every customer is an ignoramus imposing on their time. I've roamed far and wide in this country over the years, and there is literally no other store in my experience, anywhere, that is remotely close to this bad. Left feeling guilty for exposing my son to such a deplorable horror show.
I was going to say the worst gunshop in Portland, but thought that would be understating it. I don't know what that guy with the purple Mohawk and his "black" girlfriend were smoking to give this place a 5 star thumbs up rating, but he was either on something or is defending this place because he owns the place or works there. Maybe he's the gunshops owner that said he didn't give a damn about the people that walked through the doors. He also told me, he had "so much money that he could care less and his grandson was going to inherit all this one day", as he raised both arms and gestured like he was better than everyone else. That was also in the 90's and I have yet to go back to that hole in the wall. Hopefully that guy's gone by now, but I'm assuming his grandson isn't much better... Just a thunk though... Sorry if the moderators don't think this is a "constructive" review, but it is what it is and is entirely factual..
A hobby shop for crotchety old men. I was looking for a ruger single-six and found several - at 2x market price. They made fun of the previous customer before the guy even got out the door. I will never be back. Can I give less than one star?
Lots of bad attitude....I hadn't even been in the store for 5 min and they went on a rant about polymer guns and tried to make me feel stupid about carrying my XDS 45acp. Sorry guys but you're opinion is YOUR opinion!
Don't bother with this shop....and don't DARE bring your non-all steel guns with you.
If you like paying through the nose for your guns and supplies and enjoy a dismissive attitude , this is the place. Hard sell on the pistols with high tags on them. I've checked out prices elsewhere and even with shipping and transfer fees I can find the same new items cheaper. If you can't find it elsewhere and positively need it now, they're ready to take your money. Do NOT mention plastic (i.e. Glocks, Hi Points, Springfield XD, etc.) You will get an ear full before being ignored.
I Called them for cci 41 primers and was told they had them on the counter. I drove out from Beaverton to find that they had a counter full of CCI 450s. They just blew me off when I called them out . I'll never consider them for anything in the future.
