    Went to so called "Sportsmans Finest" in Austin. Was not in a tuxedo, but nicely dressed. Was ignored. Approached a clerk to ask a question on an overpriced gun, and was told to"wait your damn turn!!!!!" Never again

    Interesting... I had gone up there with HK_Fiend and they were chatting with us and were happy to show us all their toys, even the NFA weapons.

    Charles Dorrance is the president of the company if you wanted to call up there and let him know. His email is

    Collectors Firearms in Houston can be like that. I went in two years back with $3,500.00 cash in hand to buy a Bear or Wilson .45. The wife was with me at the time & every swinging dick in the place bent over backwards trying to help her with nothing. I stood at the case were they keep the high end .45 being ignored. I'm glad they pissed me off as they are over priced, but the principle of it just burns my ass.

    It is very tough to find quality service with any product I did however recently ordered a firearm from R&R arms In MN and they gave fast service and communication was excellent, while I prefer to buy local I find it increasing hard to do.

    As anyone who has met me knows I do not fit the mold for your average anything. 6'4" about 275 and about 45% tattooed{including my skull}

    I was treated great at SF and have been every time I go in.{both before and after I bought my DPMS LR308}

    Take Texas1911's advice and call the owner.

    I bought a Surefire suppressor from them and had a good experience. Their prices are reaaly high on most items.
