I have been searching for a FFL dealer to handle a transfer for me in central Louisiana for the past few days. For a V-47U from Atlantic Firearms, actually.
Anyway, I've called a couple of gunshops in the area and I can just hear in their voices the distain when I mention that it is an AK style rifle I'm looking to get. "What do you want a gun like that for?" is what one gunstore clerk actually asked me. Arrogant ASSES! he
So, anyone know any reputable dealers in Louisiana?

Thanks.

Sure, I could just let it roll off my back and get the rifle through someone like that, but I would rather pay an extra 10-20 buck and drive an extra hour to get it through a dealer who's view of firearm collecting isn't so limited or snobbish.

I have no suggestions as to who to go to- but I'd just like to say: GOOD ON YOU!

I can't understand why anyone would judge the ownership of any particular make or class of firearm.... LET ALONE WHEN THE PERSON JUDGING THE FIREARM IN QUESTION IS "IN THE FIREARM BUSINESS/CULTURE".

Hope you get your AK quick and are busy burning powder soon!

What about that store out across from Pergenne's (sp) Resturant. They rent full auto. I think it's
a great shop; been there twice, but can't remember name. North of Layafette on 49 (road to Alexanderia).

Enter your state and zip code then it will give you a list of the FFL holders in your area that will order stuff for you.

Do you mean Prejean's? Great Cajun restaurant!
Sometimes I feel sorry for the rest of the country and the cuisine ya'll must endure. Sometimes...http://www.prejeans.com/site.php
Anyway, is the store you're thinking of "Barney's Firearms"? A great facility, geared towards LEO with lots of cool toys and a very nice pistol and rifle range. I know the place, unfortunately, my experience... if it cost less than a grand, they weren't interested.

I don't think I'm being too picky...I would just like to do business with someone who is just happy to have my business, and not judgmental.

Thanks, I'll give them a call tomorrow.

Your welcome.

I will call them to make sure they resent their FFL. I need a few receivers.
If you like AR15s, they seel all kinds of them.

t_smith; you are correct about the cuisine in your area. It was Prejean's that I was thinking about.
Usually I plan my trips to Houston so I can stay in Beaux Bridge and eat at Mulate's.
