    Looking for a class 3 dealer in Eugene. If you are, or know one please let me know. Would like it if you had a few items in stock, or at least a lot of knowledge on products. Primarily looking for a 22 can and help with the paperwork at the moment. Thanks.

    Not much "stock" but LOTS of info, knowledge, toys and help; Halomfg.com Mike is a class act all around and takes great pride in his work!!

    Oh and to add- I know he's been planning to do a run of 22 cans, maybe I'll drop him a line and see how that's coming along.

    S-M is VERY difficult to deal with on suppressors. They only have a couple in stock, and told ME, they are the BEST and everything else is GARBAGE (including some notables like SWR, AAC, Silencer Co. etc). They basically refused to order anything else because the overpriced cans they did have where the "end all, do all". On top of that they told me they have a handling charge ($89 IIRC) to do the paper work.

    Not to hijack the thread, but has anyone had a good experience with SM? I only went once and got the feeling I was unwelcome...talked down to, etc. I'm a 45-year-old clean-cut professional with money, so its not like I was a derelict casing the place. Just got the old gun shop vibe of, "We're better than you because we work in a gun shop. You're an idiot." Anyway, just curious. I only spent about a minute in there, so don't want to judge them unfairly. When I went to Mazama, those guys had great customer service.

    I have done transactions with them and have been happy with those transactions you just have to know HOW the staff of that shop behaves. I can understand WHY they would be reluctant to order a suppressor when they have them sitting on their shelves (costing them revenue), I just don't feel like THAT is MY problem, so I deal elsewhere on suppressors.

    Thanks for all the input. I'd agree on the SM subject. Only been there a couple times and was not impressed with the service, so I've never purchased anything there. I don't plan on going back, so suggestions on other places would be great. Thanks.

    If you haven't gone there yet check out "Baker's Shoes" they have a relatively small selection but I've got some pretty good deals there. If I know what I want, I order guns from Davidson's and pick the guns up at AAA Buyers on 99.

    i agree completely on the sm subject. I dislike mazama even more. however... bakers shoes is amazing, there isn't one complaint i can think of. there family owned and run and there some of the most helpful people you can find in a retail position. they just want to see you happy, satisfied and give you a great deal. but if your wanting an awesome class 3 I wold take a trip up to salem and check out blackwater tactical. they have allot in stock and know there stuff.
