I was driving through Middletown and decided to just pop in at Cubeta's. Wow, what happened, there was nothing there. The shelves were bare. I had heard that there was an ownership change but holy cow I don't see that place staying open for very long looking like that.

Yeah - I thought the same thing.

I was there two weeks ago and decided to stop in, as there was an MVA and traffic on 66. Felt like an episode of the Twilight Zone in there.

Long story... including some very underhanded actions by a certain person who was working there.

To sum up the inventory shortage: they have no credit and thus can't order anything. That's the quick and easy version.


New England Outfitters in Wallingford is their sister store. I really hope Cubetas doesn't bring them down thanks to one (that I know of) jackass.


Cubetas doesn't have a whole lot to offer us anyway. The last EBR I saw there was a Vulcan.

Go to Newington Gun Exchange... they always have what I need. Hell, they even have SA .308 right now.

I stopped in the other day to slobber on the USR that's in there.

I hadn't been there in months.

I was going to ask if I could fondle it but they know damn well I can't afford it.

Please share the details. If people think the owners and employees are decent, I'll go there and spend some money.

I stopped in there about a month ago.

I didn't even realize till I left that the sign now says "New England Stream and Field".

Walked in and the place was basically empty compared to before.

I asked what happened in a very polite manner...and the dickhead behind counter just gave me attitude and nothing else.
I asked if he had some .45 ACP carry ammo...they didn't. His response was "NOPE"??!! That's it!
I wanted to check out a couple recently released (within 6 months) handguns\shotguns...no dice there either. And another "nope"!
Didn't apologize, didn't say they would be getting anything in soon...just "nope"...WTF!

Bottom line...I could deal with the fact that they were out of a few things and maybe going through a rough transition. I might even patronize them a little more because of their fairly good history...but not when you treat customers like crap.

It was never my favorite store, but they had a pretty good selection, not awful prices, and some of the guys were pretty good. One in particular (I think Chris) was really knowledgeable on the older military stuff.

Oh well, I doubt they'll be around much longer if they don't change their tune.

As I understand it, the offending fellow is no longer associated with the business. What they need to do is get their credit squared away and actually order some new inventory.

But, I have to admit... I've never liked them. My favorite person there is actually the woman who works behind the check-out area. Yolanda, I think her name is. Very sweet lady!

Anyway, I'm not going to post any more "details" unless I make some phone calls and verify the stuff first. I'm trying to remember the details from months ago and now it is just plain fuzzy.
