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???
Seriously? They hire people like that? A kid who still can't buy a pistol, and a clueless British guy??!!

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.
Nahhh. My negative experiences with them was over 15 years ago. AND, at that time there wasn't even anyone like the above 2 mentioned there, that I remember....

After Denver passes away, they have gone way downhill. If you know exactly what you are looking for, your fine.

I like Pete's. I collect old WW2 rifles and was looking for a Carcano. They had one and I think it was the guys mom but she gave me a great deal and made it feel like I was visiting my Aunt! Good store and good people.
