    Has anyone ever dealt with these folks on firearm purchases? I'm not getting the warm fuzzies on this one.

    I,ve been in the store one time. Was just looking to see what they had for used revolvers. Told the clerk that I was looking fore something along the lines of a Chiefs Special. Tried to do the hard sale on a Sig 226. Did everything but call me stupid for not buying the Sig. Will never go back and their prices are a bit high.

    I had the same experience via email....was looking for a rifle in .30-06 - he kept coming back at me trying to hard sell me on a 300 win mag and finally told me he was 16 weeks out on the -06. 16 weeks for a production rifle!!!!!! He must not be very high on the distributors A-List.

    Brother took in an AR with "light Primer Strike" . Their "Smith" missed the hammer spring in back wards.:huh:

    Not much faith in that one...:paranoid:

    So the guy told me the rifle in my desired caliber was 16 weeks out. I went to Rapid Fire Arms in Sandy yesterday and they can have it in the shop in 3-4 business days. What the heck?

    I was hoping to find these guys under the "poll" section like the other shops. But I'll post my opinion anyway.

    After staying a night at the casino across the street I popped in as I saw them on the Glock Blue Label list. First responder pricing is usually around $395 with standard sights and $459 for night sights. Their LE price was $500 and $569?? I was in the store less than a minute and could tell I'll never be back. Luckily The Trading Post in Bellingham is also a Blue Label dealer and was able to do one at the standard price (plus shipping).

    Their "Gunsmith" couldn't tell that an AR hammer spring was in backwards.:paranoid:

    That's the name of a gun store? Dood, what are people thinking.. might as well name it Unicorns and Such!. neither has anything to do with guns.
