Howdy, today I drove over the mountains from eastern washington to the puget sound area. I had some time to kill before I had to meet someone, so I went to West Coast Armory in Issaquah and then Wade's in Bellevue. I had two very different experience's, one good and one bad. West Coast Armory-Walked in the door and was greatly warmly by the guys behind the counter and was told if I had any questions just ask, and to take my time looking around the store. So, after a few minutes browsing I asked to see the new Ruger Scout Rifle, they handed it over and I drooled on it for a bit and was priced really well. The guy answered my all questions about the rifle and I gave it back. As I was leaving the store and the guys again warmly, thanked me for coming in. Wade's Eastside Gun Shop-As I pulled in, the parking lot was packed, so I had to park across the street. I walked in and the gun range counter was very crowded with people and the gun shop was just as full. So, I looked at the accessories and ammo till a spot was opened at the counter, a good fifteen minutes, because I noticed they had a Ruger Scout. I walked up and waited a good five plus minutes until a sale's guy decided to help me. I asked the guy how much their Ruger Scout Rifle was and he gave me the price. To my shock, it was $120.00 more than at West Coast Armory and Wade's is about a twenty minute drive away! I then asked the sale's person if I could look at a Kimber .45 that was sitting in the case below me I noticed. He kind of snorted as if I was bothersome or I was annoying him. He handed the pistol over, I looked it over and asked him if he has fired this particular pistol, he said "Yes". So, I asked "Well, how does it shoot and handle", his reply "If you utilize proper shooting techniques you'll do just fine...." So, he basically slapped me with an insult, like I do not know how to fire a weapon. I couldn't believe his answer and the way he said it, he said it in a way where he was looking away from me and then yawned, like he really didn't care. I was interested in the pistol and was thinking of buying it, after his little insult I handed in back and walked out of the store. I will never go back to Wade's or wait another two years like I did before, today. West Coast Armory will be getting my business from now on, a good bunch of guys there and friendly. I guess I am guy use to good service (most of the time) coming from eastern washington. This is just my opinion and my opinion only.This is what I observed today while visiting the two gun shops.
