Nah, you should stop in and point out that they are poorly reviewed; then, ask if they have anything discounted deeply enough to convince you otherwise to see how much they care.


OT - Do the pawn shops in CA sell firearms? is it legal? is it common?

yes i have bought a gun there in the past and have friends that have made some buys there but i bought from a guy that was working there then when i picked up my gun i met the owner she was short with me then but i paid no mind because i was anxious to get to the range which happens to be just down the road.this was the last straw for me i work hard for my money and will pay a little extra if i have to for good customer service.

I have walked out on a few gun shops when I get the hint of disrespect, misinformation, and plain ol' ignorance. A new gun store opened up near by, so I decided to stop in. I was actually looking to buy a .380 caliber for conceal carry, they had a Taurus PT 738 for $240.00.

I was digging into my pockets for the money when I asked about TulAmmo of my .45 JHP. The owner immediately slammed TulAmmo by saying he don't deal in junk ammo. I told him my 4595TS shot TulAmmo flawlessly, and if he stocked it I would buy from him. He foamed all over him self to the point that I could not, in good conscience to myself, buy the Taurus. I walked out, and have not been back since.

To this very day, every time I go by that shop, I do not see many vehicles parked out front.

i do not understand the mindset of the owner to run a business this way.
