This reflects my experience with Mick also. He's one of the good guys, not many left. If he's chatting it up with some "good ole boys" all you have to say is "hey Mick" can I look at this gun or what ever, or you can always join in on the conversation, or just listen ya might learn something. I've never found him to be rude or indifferent. His prices are fair, but don't expect to get what you payed on a trade-in, that's how he stays in business. His hours are 11am to 6pm Tues.- Sat. and sometimes he does close early depending on how busy it is, personally I call first.....I just had a Beretta slide and barrel hot dipped blued through Mick, and they are beautiful, very reasonable and quick turn around. As far as I'm concerned he's the only gun shop in town !!This is a great idea, one of the advantages of a local site. Wanted my first post with you guys to be a positive one, and I've got nothing but great things to say about Mick over at MLC. I've made several purchases/trades from him, and Mick has never been anything but polite and approachable. In reference to his group of "good ol' boys" that a previous poster made mention of, I too have been in when Mick was chatting up a friend, but generally his "good 'ol boys" are very approachable as well, and I've had many great conversations in his shop just jumping in. Hats off, Mick, thanks for all your help.
Of course, what do you know FNG, you think Doug is a great guyJust purchased a A2 style stock/buffer/spring/tube assembly from Mick. Good guy to deal with, and reminds me of your stereotypical gunsmith... has the look in his eye that he has forgotten more about firearms than any of us will ever learn.
Like the store (lots of reloading supplies also), and like the company. Good stuff.
