To the first poster and his review. It is NOT the responsibility of that store to instruct you on how to shoot and educate you on gun safety. YOU are the one responsible for stepping up and signing for a gun safety course. As far as the manual..it sounds as if you bought a used gun. In fact...I'd probably stake my life on it. The sales guy was right...print one off the web site. If you had a knowledge of computers...then you would probably know how to eliminate some of the unnecessary pages..but considering your FEAR of guns, you probably should read every word of the manual..no matter how pre-school that it seems or how many pages of paper you would use. In the past month, I've bought two high end 1911's as well as a semi-auto shotgun and I gotta say...Mike..whom is one of the managers, is GREAT!!! Works with you on price and offers quite a bit of info on the product. He has helped me with two big purchases in the past three months as well as a shotgun. Right after I bought the shotgun, I messed up the trigger on a re-installation....MY FAULT..and I was to go to a match at the local club at the end of the week and really really needed it by then!. I took my gun into Shoot Straight in Clearwater explaining my dilemma, expecting a saviour...and expecting a resounding &quot;No!&quot;, and instead, I was told, &quot;No problem!&quot; They took a trigger group out of a different shot gun and switched it out with mine and I was on my way..happy as a clam. There are NO gun stores that would have done what they did for me. It was incredible. 5 stars are not enough of the service I received.
This is the best firearms store in Pinellas county, period. They have great southern hospitality, always offering something to drink or eat. They also have super courteous and knowledgeable staff that go out of their way to help you make the best purchase. They purchase used firearms and pay reasonable prices for them. Plus they have a gunsmith on site for repairs. Leave the rest, pick the best.
People You Can Trust... You can buy guns at many places. BUT, I don't think you will find nicer people who really know their business. You can trust these folks to help you find the right hand gun for you or the perfect rifle for hunting. Good honest people with great prices and selection. Please, you gotta visit this place. Tell them Bob Vandiver from DirectEDDM dot com sent you. Thanks!!
When I needed to settle an estate of a close relative I called J&E to come and look at the collection and help me with the sale of the firearms. They purchased the entire collection and all the items were sold within a couple of days. They were very polite and honest - I would not hesitate to do business with them again.
Great service. Ordered the gun I was looking for at the best price in the county. Extremely friendly owners who will go the extra mile to help find what you need.
I have purchased several of my firearms from them and my daughter and I shoot there all the time and the folks there are great! They always get my business.
