Hmmm, I was in there earlier today (around 12:30PM or 1PM) and they didn't have ANY 5.11 stuff up. They had the racks for it, but nothing out for sale. We asked and he said it hadn't arrived yet.

Also, I wouldn't say there was a lot of LMT or GG&G stuff. He had some stuff out, but not what I would consider "a lot."

They do have a ton of Blackhawk and Spectre gear up already. The place is pretty big, and they have plans for a class room in the back. The idea being product reps would come in and demonstrate their gear.

I think once they are up and running at full speed, it will be a great shop. Plus, it is just a few doors down from Tactical Tailor, so you can get an uber-gear fix in almost one stop shopping! Korean lady's surplus isn't too much futher down either.

Today's tally?
Tactical Tailor - $210 (they are having a 40% sale on quite a bit of gear right now!)
Quantico Arms - $28 (quick clot and a compression dressing)
Korean Lady - zip, but my friend did score some HK M16 mags and some Wiley-X glasses.

I'd say give them a week or so to get more stuff in. The 25% sale does run through the end of the month.
Link Posted: 12/16/2005 3:42:17 PM EDT
I would echo what you said.

but who is this Korean lady?

a forgot TT as down the road.......I don't venture into that part of town very often.......this was the 1st time in 4-5 years prolly.

Well I definately know you will be giving TT some competition as well as LEEDS in Tacoma.

A nice big shop and a good location. Thanks for the opening sale prices. I picked up an LMT BUIS and a couple charging handles at a great price. I'm sure to make it down there again.

Good luck with the opening and next couple weeks, Im sure you will do great.

Those are great hours. I hope you can maintain them, especially on Sunday.



Inventory is arriving daily. Surefire will arrive next week, as will 5.11. Not sure when EoTechs will arrive.



No kidding! While we were there (20 minutes or so) FedEx showed up with a couple of boxes. I will say that the selection of some of the stuff already up was very impressive. TONS of selection of Blackhawk, Spectre (formerly CQB Solutions) and Camelbak.



We are a Glock, Springfield Armory and HK LE distributor. As noted earlier in this thread, we don't yet have a FFL for this location.



Being an LE dealer, does that mean you will still be able to offer good prices to civvies? Or does that just mean you can offer exceptional deals to LE? Also, when you get the FFL, will you be accepting transfers of firearms? As in, someone buys something off the internet, etc. and then needs an FFL to receive it.


If you haven't tried the Robertson Farms beef jerky, you should!


RATS! I forgot to ask for a sample or buy some. I guess I'll have to go back. BUT, you guys are in Oberto country (local jerky company.) But a good beef jerky is always appreciated.

Link Posted: 12/17/2005 3:09:00 PM EDT
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 3:26:02 PM EDT
I think I will stop by tomorrow to check out the beef jerky. I also did not know Oberto was based in Kent. I knew they had an outlet in Albany, OR, where you could get jerky at wonderful prices ... but didn't know they were based up here.

I will also check out other toys while I'm in there.



I have a question about the LE/Mil thing ... does that mean you give great prices to LE/Mil purchasing for personal use, or only for unit/organizational purchases?

I guess I'll have to go by another day, then.

I went to Quantico Arms today, and MAN you guys really need to take advantage of the discount, Doyle was great to work with. If you ever wanted a pelican case...

Are you guys just trying to make me drive the 110 miles to get there?! On the bright side it should only take 2 hours if there isn't any traffic.

Well, the comment about it looking sparse wasn't supposed to be a bad one ... just an observation that you had a lot of room that looked like you were still gonna fill.

Went by today...Guy said he recieved 50+ boxes and were unpacking as I looked around. He yet again insisted that he won't be selling any NVG Eotechs to civies (for those of you looking to buy them). He's still looking for some help in the shop (somebody that knows something about the gear they sell).

Can't wait until they have the place completely stocked. I'm curious how they are going to fill it.
