I guess if I pick the wrong fat guy out of a line up it's over.

You should not be driving 90 minutes anyways unless you are saving atleast 2x your fuel cost.

You guys really need a northend shop
Link Posted: 4/29/2011 6:45:21 AM EDT

Really? You guys run one of the best shops I've seen. I'm sure that doesn't happen by accident. Every time I'm in your shop I see a bunch of guys working like their asses are on fire. Same thing at the gun shows.

I was gonna complain that the cases of .45 I bought from you at the show were too heavy. Then I remembered you lent me a hand truck to wheel it out to the car.

This sort of exercise is how they will continue to do that and be better at it.

Kudos to you for opening yourselves up to the scrutiny of your customers this way.

+1 for the north end shop

Im down for whatever

I just like the store. Good prices, nice people and sometimes its fun to watch that one guy run around confusing people. I like supporting local business, and in the sub five mile from my house department they win. If I lived in elsewhere I might frequent a different shop like Mary's or something. I used to call and ask for prices on stuff alot, but theyve ben crazy busy so sometimes I'll just go down and ask or look around.

Heres another real swell idea. Maybe you could go down there and introduce yourself with a "Hey I'm Carl, I'm Eswift on arfcom" then some goofy looking schmuck would say "oh yeah, I'm unicorn, I've won the most masculine handle of the year award three years in a row on arfcom."

Then you could go home, and later email unicorn or whomever you met and say "Hey I'm Carl, we met last week, I was the doof with interpersonal issues. Say I'm super interested in getting xxx, do you guys carry that? If you dont how much would it be to order?

It's an interesting concept to consider, but I have not yet found someone at any retail outlet who does not respond well to politeness and casual niceness. Sometimes theyre even willing to go the extra inch or two to help you out, even if its outside of their job desciptions.

I realise arfcom has changed but WTF was that? Logic and politeness in one post
