That shop had a KG99 Threaded barrel with a Front Foregrip on it. I informed the clerk of the legal issues of selling that . After about 10 minutes he finally believed me. He said "our gunsmith put the foregrip on it , we didn't know it was illegal" . For a shop that had Class III weapons I find that hard to belive.

Ignorance of the law isn't a defense.

Edelman's had a store right down on the Boulevard in Philadelphia years ago.

It was the first gun store I ever walked into. They had to be the most ignorant bunch of assholes ever!

Almost gave up buying a gun altogether.

I hated Edleman's! I consider myself a clean cut, middle class guy and would often shop there in a suit and tie. I was treated so rudely so often I would go there just to look as they had a great selection. I would then buy somewhere else. It's been over a decade and seeing their name still makes me angry. I flat out hated the F-ing store. God what a lousy place to shop! I celebrated the day they closed down. If urinating in public wasn't a crime, I'd have wee wee'd on their store the day it closed. Good Riddence to a worthless piece of sh-t place!

Gary

Bob...you do know that Danny at Tanners came from there right?


I don't think Edelmans owns Kimber although I do know that there was a business connection of some sort.

It's true... Leslie E. owns 'em.

I had been told this several years ago by someone who was in the firearms business and I also read an article in one of the gun magazines.


April 5, 2003 – At the 2003 SHOT Show, Kimber® Owner and President Leslie Edelman (right) presented the first $50,000 check installment to the U.S.A. Shooting Team.

Good that he escaped the evil clutchs of the waste of space Leslie Edleman's Inc. May they rot in gunstore hell...! To my dying day I will hate that F-ing store! Sadly the store didn't burn down the day after their insurance lapsed!

I guess it must be a case of "on any given day" I used to love to browse Edleman's, both the Roosevelt Boulevard Store and the store in Montgomeryville. I purchased two guns from them. One was a Colt SP1 which I bought for under 500.00 and the other was a POS Taurus S&W knockoff. I never encountered any problems with them. They were no better or no worse than most of the guns stores I have used. I for one am always sorry to see any gun store go out of business because we need the viability and the competition in the market.
