I had been in the establishment several times growing up... My father bought his reloading supplies from them for years while I was younger with me in tow on a short leash. I turned 18 (1998)and went in there for a shotgun(simple reliable 870 12ga) and the "salesman" tried to point me to a multitude of other shotguns that in my opinion were overpriced and not practical for my purposes (future hunting and home defense) think over under in $1000 price range back then. After remaining very insistent I was finally handed what I wanted. Filled out my paperwork and paid and out the door I went.
Several years later went to purchase a handgun (roughly 2002) and received the treatment in my above post...Now I go to GT Distributors and have always had top notch service so I decide to continue using them. Just as my father was on a first name basis at McBrides I am on a first name basis with most of the gun counter guys at GT.
to you Zombie but as I said I may have to stop back in there and see... But with a baby on the way and a nearly nonexistent budget for firearms it may be rough in the next few years.
Chl class for me and wife=$225. Chl application fees =$280. Chl gear for 2=more $ the previous. Moving from sheep to sheepdog = priceless
