I really like the Baron's Den for the most part. They are always helpful. Steve Huey works there and he'll take great care of you if you ask for him. You can rent guns from the rental wall, and if you're looking at used guns, you can take them out and shoot them BEFORE you buy. The range is nice on rainy days.
WoW, I am surprised at reading a couple of these posts.
Prices are decent considering what you are getting. Service is great with "the den" I have never gotten bad advice or CS with the guys there. I know taht prices can be lowered, but overhead can't. I don't work there. I do shop there alot.
never really paid much attention to thier prices, but I have browsed a few times, and the staff is very friendly and helpful, and the selection is pretty decent. Plus, you may get to see someone rent the FA "tommy gun". Always a hoot to see the HUGE smile on people who shoot it.
My sister wanted a .38 so I took her to the barons den this afternoon. She paid a little more that she had to, but I was confident that reguardless of which sales man we got, they would be patient enough to work with my sister.
She left very happy with her choice.
I have purchased two pink Sig Mosquitos since my last post. My wife wanted one while we were there. One of my older daughters saw it when we got home and I got to go back the next day and buy the other one.
I think the sign said that it is $40 to shoot two 25 round clips from the Tommy Gun and $10 for each additional clip. Sure looks like fun. I keep hoping someone will be shooting it while I am there so I can watch.
Some of their prices can be high but some are very fair too. E.g. I paid $1039 for my FN Five-seveN. Rental fee was refunded and I got a free range pass which costs $10 normally.
Knowlegable staff and if you get to know Raye, Steve and Bear they can even be very friendly. Always helps if you spend a couple thousand dollars occassionally too!
Cheapest price fir PS90 mags anywhere and they are in stock!
The Baron's Den is my idea of what a nice gun store is. Comfy, big, lots of cool collectible stuff. The owner Walt is smart and cadgy, smokes cigars and invites you to sit and have coffee with him. I know one of the counter guys, took my CHL class there from Ray. I find the counter guys to be better than average. Shot 4 mags thru the paratrooper Tommy, it was fun.
I like the Barons Den. The prices seem a tad high but as a previous poster noted: how knows what the overhead is? My wife is an insurance broker so I tend to think in those terms sometimes. How much would the insurance be on a gun store in general then add to that they have a shooting range attached. I'm guessing they get stuck with a ton of liability insurance over that. Anyway, I like the folks there and the selection.
I love this place! Bought my eotech there a couple months ago and and he let my girflriend and I shoot the tommy gun at half price. Very nice customer service and all of their optics seemed quite reasonably priced. (acog, eotech, etc.) I would definitely recommend this place to everybody!
My favorite store in Eugene. I HAVE actually seen some prices lower than other stores in town, not often, but I have seen it. I have also made offers on every gun I've bought from them and they came down $50 on two guns, and $75 on a third, so while their asking price may be high they are not un-reasonable to deal with. Even if they are a little higher in price I'd deal with them to NOT have to deal with the attitude some of the other local store have.
