been in their store once..... lots of nice toys.

The people in the store seemed friendly enough, but the prices were HIGH..........

I've heard good about them, but never been there myself.
As for feeling shunned, that's why I never went to more of the shoots at Rio, I'd go to talk to people and get the who the f*** are you look.
Heck, I can get that from work.

Their store is a joke. Tons of space. Not much inventory. All high speed stuff. Most can be bought online for Half the price. - LITERALLY HALF!!

I only go in there cuz my barber shop is next door to it.

I don't know how they crack the rent nut, but it can't be from retail sales. Shucks! Pistol parlour in mesa has a better firearms selection.

It was probally Ron(Owner) and Amanda(Sales person/instructor/everything), they are good folks you just have to catch them when they are not busy. Stop by the shop sometime I'm sure they'll be more up to chatting.

Well lets see, I bought a Rem LTR, Rem 870 Max, Aimpoint, Glock 21, and probably some other stuff. All brand new and reasonably priced. If I could have ordered from the "internet" at literally half price I would have.

Ron and Amanda have always been super cool to me each time I have talked to them.

I never had any problems with them. Ron is very friendly and always up for talking at the store (if no other customers are there). If you want to see any of his Class III weapons, all you have to do is ask and they will (with a smile on their face) get one and let you hold it and ask questions. Not like the 'nose-up-in-the-air' never crack a friendly smile big gun store north of most of us.

Also very LOW pressure to buy anything! It seems they are happy to introduce folks new to firearms what they have and what to expect.

As for pricing, can you list somne of the stuff that is double the internet price? I'm not an expert by any means, but I have visited their store and web site and their prices look accurate to me. You have to remember that they have a store front and inventory to pay for and do not work out of their garage or den.

I will go back.
