They're huge in the DFW area-always have plenty of tables at all the gun shows, and their prices are very competitive. They've been around a long time, and I've never heard any complaints about them. As ususal, YMMV.

Price setters at the Texas gun shows. Large selection and great prices. They have been big players in this area as I recall for about 20 years. No TLC, just honest goods and low prices.

See them at the Houston shows regularly and they tend to have lots on hand w/ decent pricing. I know they've been around awhile.

I've been to the shop several times. It's located on Mockingbird close to Love Field. Lots of LEO business. I bought my 700 PSS there, so prices are reasonable. Lots of Kimbers in the display cases. I forget the name of the owner but he hangs out and seems nice enough. Accessories galore and well priced. Ammo is kinda pricey though.

Reputable people to do business with. But because they do so much business, and sell there guns at cheapest prices, you might find that they really have a somewhat "Take it or leave it" flakey attitude. I suppose that's OK if you know what you want, and just put the cash down on the table. You'll still get the quick little grin and "thank you" I suppose. My gripe is my being blown off on two seperate occassions when I wanted to see if they would take deposits or at least tell me that I could obtain a Colt LEO rifle from them for when the sunset occurred. The owner would hear nothing of it, and ended the conversation walking away from me like I had bad breath. Others have gladly welcomed my business for that September 14th date. No biggie. The 2 rifle purchases I have arranged for the 14th is his loss.

I bought 12 beta mags from them when they had them for $379. No problems, fast service.

S.O.

He was probably just concerned that you might be a BATF agent/shill looking to get him in trouble. Being an FFL isn't exactly a hazard free business.

I've purchased from them and have been pleased. I do find it funny that their web page takes you to Cheaper Than Dirt though.

Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...
