It is interesting, reviews can be at opposite polarities. One lazy employee or manager can jade a review. Many lazy employees or mangers that don't care, and the reviews are indelible.

I still gave them 3-stars, as they are no worse than Fred Meyer, Bimart, or Cabela's.

Pros

  • + location relative to my home.
Cons
  • - Customer service, selection, price.
When I have to interrupt the gun counter guys to get help, and when I cannot see their ammo selection that is too far out of sight of the customer, when they are so over priced, when they hide the price tags on any gun I'm interested in, or when I try to special order a gun only to get a reply 6-weeks later that they've dropped the ball, then I have zero allegiance to such a place. When I'm in the neighborhood, I still stop in, but seldom find the things I need. I provide my own customer service.

Fee for a private sale/transfer is $45 (includes BGC). You can get the same thing for $20-$25 at other FFL's. They also do extra forms that no other FFL I've used has with their transfers, which takes additional time to complete the sale/transfer. They were nice enough, but the extra cost and extra forms/time just make it not worth it for me to use them for a private sale/transfer.
Did a private sale transfer there this week at the request of my buyer. Cost for the transfer/BGC is $45 (buyer paid).

I had heard they have additional paperwork that other FFL's don't, and that is true. In addition to the 4473, they have their own in-house forms they filled out, which took more time than transfers I've done at other FFL's. They were friendly, but seemed to struggle getting the forms filled out (referring back to the instructions several times). Thankfully they weren't busy at the time, if they had been, it would have taken even longer.

Overall, while they were friendly, I wouldn't use them again. I see no reason to pay more than $20-$25 since I can get that at several other FFL's, and I can do it without the extra time-consuming paperwork.
