    The wait time for a pistol at SPS Guns in Carrollton is bullsh!t. Larry, the owner, 'claimed' he ordered 5 Kimber pistols back in December; I'm skeptical.. He (Larry) told me I could place a pre-order with his gun shop for my pistol, a Kimber Ultra CDP II. So on April 30th I put down $200.00 as a downpayment. Waited until June 2nd for my gun to arrive at SPS Guns. It never did. So, that same day, I picked up the phone and called around some of the area Kimber dealers [a list generates on Kimber's website for dealers in your zip code]. Sure enough, the first one I call - Bass Pro Shops in Grapevine - had one Kimber Ultra CDP II .45 left in stock. And behold, my new Kimber:

    Apparently my $200.00 downpayment at SPS Guns is non-refundable, and cannot be used as store credit. I think that's wrong, it's bad business, and I wouldn't recommend SPS Guns to anyone. That's my two cents. Happy to have my pistol, but feel conned/mislead/misinformed out of my $200.00.

    Thats why I always use a CC in these types of shady dealers deals. Can't deliver ? just refund the money.

    Odd OP. Undoubtedly you want kudos on the gun but the majority is spent ranting.


    You asked about all this before you made the down payment, right?

    Well, I for one would consider $200 lost on a Kimber a good day. I have 3 of their paperweights and will never own another.

    Firstly, the difference between ranting and informing is one of opinion. Secondly, who are you to tell me what I want? You're nobody. Thirdly, I did ask about 'all this' before the transaction. There's no written policy that was disclosed to me and/or visible in the shop regarding refunds, and verbal agreements are non-binding in the state of Texas as of 2007. You can read about all of this and more on the internet (you're on it now), or through the Better Business Bureau. But pace yourself. Reading takes time and discipline.

    Imo, when one post their new item on the internet, it usually means you want to show it off and get likes/comments on it.

    And on this day, zero fucks were given...
