Highpower, that SUX! I have a local shop I visit once a week, and probably buy a half dozen guns a year from. The owner has a copy of my 03 on file, and usually offers me a discount on a gun purchase, since all he had to do is list in in his bound book as a transfer- no 4473, State Police check, etc. Hell, they called me to ask if I knew how to decipher date codes on a Remington barrel! You wonder how the jerks like the one you ran up on stay in business!

Maybe he was just having a bad day that day or something, but it really hit me like a brick wall because it just came out of the blue. I started off buying from them when his father ran the business and "dad" was as cut throat as you can get. But the son saw me in there often and soon started to make a bee-line toward me whenever I walked in the door, and shooed his dad away.

Over the years we established a great relationship and the son would give me a considerable discount on everything I bought, because of the volume of business I gave them. He took over the shop when his dad passed away.

On that one day however I made the mistake of asking him if he would keep my FFL on file in order to forgo the usual paperwork and NICS call on any future C&R purchases from them. I was more than willing to pay them their usual prices and just wanted to cut the extra red tape in order to save time, and just make the process easier. But I think he took it as I was trying to get the guns at cost from him, and that of course would have been the ultimate insult.

But the manor in which he spoke to me after that insured that he lost me as a customer for life. I then moved on to another local dealer and got pretty much the same response. I don't know if it is a local issue or just the fact that many 01 FFL's don't have a clue regarding what a C&R is all about. An 03 FFL in their eyes purchasing a C&R weapon are no different than an everyday retail customer and will be treated as such - no exceptions. And while they are perfectly within the regulations to do so, they certainly don't need to be such a **** about it.

I was trying to find a Tokarev TT33 on SOG's website the other day. I was unable to browse the catalog, but i did find that it could be searched by typing in something like tokarev or cz-52. Century's site has a hard to see link for their catalog, no prices listed. I don't think SOG had prices when i did see the Tokarev, lemme check.

edit* I was wrong, SOG does show a price: http://www.southernohiogun.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=tokarev

Search block, top right corner.

Been there many times in the past when I had an FFL.
They are in Lebanon, Oh on Rt.73 w.
Lots to pick from and good prices.
They seem to lean towards the import stuff.
