My question is why isn't the owner keeping tabs on his help himself? If someone has to go to the owner with a problem, he should take that as a REALLY bad sign. There is another gun shop I go to around here. Their help can be, uhhh, eccentric. Some days really friendly, some days super grouchy and not wanting to talk. l chalk a certain amount of this up to "That's the way gun shop guys are."

That's a good part of why I go to Lee's. Never a problem. BTW, he's changing his name to Gunrunners 101.

I was recently denied at Riley's myself. Drove up to the Department of Safety in Concord to find out why. Turns out I had an unpaid traffic ticket in Mass. from 1989. Why that never came up before I'll never no. Cleared up the ticket, faxed paper work to Concord, had my gun 2 days later.

I had no idea that anyone could be denied for traffic tickets, that's crazy. Glad it worked out for you.

Yeah, that's interesting. I have imagined that Mass was to screwed up to communicate with any other states effectively. Although, I suppose that's true if you got the ticket in '89, and it's just showing up now.....

Funny thing is, the judge didn't even make me pay the fine, they pulled my record from Mss. (clean) and the judge swore me in and asked one question, "do I have any charges pending in another state?" (no) They gave me a piece of paper saying the arrest warant was dropped, and sent me on my way.

I did have a pocket full of cash, in case they decided to arrest me. After all they did have an outstanding arrest warrant.

It wasn't the traffic ticket that caused the issue, it was the arrest warrant from an unpaid ticket that caused the issue.

Default A Riley's Customer for Forty Three Years

I started doing business with Riley's in 1969 when I left the Navy and moved back home to Manchester. Richard and/or Doris Riley were always behind the counters. I can't begin to to count the numbers of firearms I, my wife, my relatives, and friends have bought there as well as reloading supplies, components, and ammo. None of us has ever had a problem there. I have known Ralph for decades and shot competetive pistol with
him at Wilson Hill Pistol Club. In fairness I should say that Riley's is a client of the service company I own and because of my relocation out of the area some years ago, my shopping opportunities have diminished signifigantly in recent years and have no knowledge of their current staff.

However, I suspect that the curt service my be a result of the wave after wave of customers being pushed and pulled into the store from the our great American Gun Salesman of the Year who occasionally stops in DC between vacations. I am sure that a quiet conversation with Ralph or a short note to him would be an effective way to refocus the the staff regarding how good manners breeds repeat clients.

The last time I was in, a kid no more then 19 came over to help. He had no clue what I was talking about. There is also a British gentleman that came over to help. He told me he had no idea as he was a pistol guy. I asked how long he had been in the states. 5 years. I asked when he became naturalized and bought a handgun, he said 3 years ago. Were you in the service, No. Now I ask you. What is an individual that has only 3 years total experience w/ firearms going to do w/ a shooter of over 35 years and a collector. Is he going to advise them???
