Big store (Sportsmans, Cabelas etc) or Mom and Pop type? What's good and bad about your experiences? I think my gun dealer is an exception to the rule, the guy will order anything you want for $10 over wholesale plus shipping. No BS, just here's the wholesale catalog, you look it up and tell me what you want. He also has more guns in stock (4K!) than the Sportsmans Warehouse and any other dealer in town combined. The down side is that he's technically a pawn shop, the place is only about 15'X25' in the main store, and you have to wait at least 20 min to get helped, not to mention you may be there when some scrotonian with a stolen circular saw wants to come in and haggle for his meth fix money. Definitely no window shopping, I do that @ Sportsmans and decide and then go get it from Jimmy. The biggest difference I think is that he actually took a pistol back from me, actually encouraged me to test 200 rounds through it and return it if I wasn't happy. Turned around and exchanged it for full purchase price and even gave me $10 off the new replacement pistol (which had gone up) "'cause it's not your fault the price went up". Anyway, I was just thinking about this because I've heard so many horrror stories about pistols that did not work right or make the buyer unhappy and they had to take a beating on a "buy back".
