I used to see them on the board here and at the Richmond shows, but no longer...

Are they just focused on their retail stores now...?

I bought a gun from them at the last gun show in hampton, VA and they said they didn't like the richmond show anymore. I dunno anything else

Maybe busy running all the new stores? I think they have 5 of them now...

I see them at the Chantilly show.

Maybe they didn't feel like putting up with ATF strongarming tactics at the Richmond show.

What is wrong with the Richmond Show? I have not been down there for over a year!
Link Posted: 3/31/2006 9:38:00 AM EDT
I talked to them a few weeks ago after the last Richmond Showplace show. I was told they are going to concentrate on the store fronts and were pretty much only going to major gun shows like Chantilly, Hampton Roads and possibly Fredericksburg and other shows where there is a major military/naval installation. They are going National and may be doing other shows in States where they have a store front like the big show in Louisville, KY.
Guess they've been pretty busy with thier greatly expanding business so they don't have much time to hang out here anymore.

We help build them up and then they leave us?

I never did see all that ammo that was supposed to be part of the grand opening specials...

don't get me started. HUUUUUUGE dissapointment. Not only on the ammo. But that's a BIG part of it.

Well glad to see you all are building up. Glad to see some hometown folks go big time. As for the ammo deal that is completely unsat on the distributors end. Let us know who it was so we can boycott them.

How does the ARF login work? I looked at the QA website and didn't see anything.

Hey, your website still only lists you as being open five days a week. I'm gonna be up at Quantico doing work at the historical center on Thursday (researching 3/5s landing on Wolmi-Do. You wouldn't believe how little has been written on Inchon) and might try to swing by if you guys are now open later than 1600 (I don't think they kick me out until 1630. Gotta call tomorrow).

Great, I guess I can spend more money with the beef jerky guy .

Remember when you went to the gun show to buy guns.

I was just at their store today. Counter guys were nice folks. While I was waiting they gave two young Marines a no BS talk about different civilian AR-15 makers, even if they were promoting midlengths. Nice to hear a sales pitch that wasn't about trying to sell the most expensive thing you had on the rack to guys who didn't know who RRA and DPMS are.

They then gave me a nice chat about knives, and I ended up getting a CRKT folder.

qa definitely has some good folks. wonder if they and va arms trade 'em back and forth like baseball players?
