Good place for FFL transfers too! I used another place in town for a couple years and just purchased with Mick and it was easier and less $$$. He also has great prices on custom order scopes and such if you want a good buy on something and don't want to mess with the internet.
I think there are often people just hanging out and tire kicking in the shop whick makes it tough for him help everyone at one time and could have resulted in concerns mentioned.
FYI: Your credit card statement may catch the attention of your spouse if that is a concern when she reads the "exotic" line item.
