I only needed their clerk to try his best to push a product on me that would obliterate a 2k antique firearm, and possibly be of great physical harm to my person, to be convinced not to return there...

PS:
Not to mention calling ahead to verify the right product was available and being made feel guilty for not purchasing the wrong product.

I'm still trying to figure out who's the worst. Keiths, The Gun Room or Beavercreek Armory...They ALL suck fat ones, just sayn...
I have always had fun on my trips to the gun room. The last time I was in there I was looking for an affordable optic for a relatives hunting rifle, and after the snarky clown behind the counter showed me the garbage amazon tier scopes he had in stock, I said something along the lines of "do you have anything that isnt chinese trash or do I have to go to Cabelas to get the entry level Vortex or Burris that I was looking to buy?" (yes I know those scopes are also made in china, but they are also miles better than the bubblegum the gun room was selling that day)... he mumbled something about how china sucks and then pretended like I didnt exist.

Correct. Besides, just look at other gun shops and there is proof to back up your statement. For example, Gator's in Kelso. They do it right. As you say, really ain't that tough. Ain't that tough to be respectful, polite, informative, courteous... what used to be typical American business attributes.
Oregon Rifle Works fits that description. I have always been greeted when I enter the store and the staff has always been helpful and courteous. That is a testament of a good business owner.

Thanks for identifying another great company. Now I'm definitely going to check them out. More and more I'm steering my business to companies with superior customer service, and consequently steering away from the bad ones. Getting pickier about who gets my money. Just like choosing not to buy products made in China, it is increasingly important to "reward" businesses that go the extra mile for quality customer service.

Agree, so many good gun shops listed in this thread there is almost no reason that I can see to put up with bending over and saying, "yes sir, may I have another" just to get to the most basic level of respect one would expect as a customer.

Recently dealt with adaptive firing solutions in oregon city for a purchase from a member here and great service, Fe. Had to wait due to other customers which is expected but didn't have to waft hundred dollar bills under his nose to get his attention, which apparently is what you have to do at crap Kieth's gun shop.

Steve @ Adaptive is who I go to no matter what..
Keith's can be plucked up & Relocated to SoCal so it can fall off into the Pacific Ocean someday..
Kurt's on 99E is always busy & fair for Black Gun heaven. :)

Me, I miss THE [old] GUN BROKER on 82nd Dr from the 90s.....:(:(

And then there is THE WAR FRONT @ THE BOMBER Restaurant on 99E.:):):)
More than having some Kool Kid Guns they have Museum Quality Stuff highlighting WWII w/ attention to German & "Murican everything. :);)

That's good to know about gun shop at the bomber restaurant. Didn't know it was there. I just assumed all that area was dead but haven't driven by there for a while.
