Those are some harsh words, Try to fix your gun at Academy!
Those are some harsh reviews!
Let us analyse the source of these frustrations encountered.
Guns and Ammo have increased in price nation wide. Also, try to have a gun serviced at Academy or other large GUN / AMMO outlets!
I have witnessed numerous un-realistic customers in many gun stores. They purchase guns for instance at a ""GUN SHOW"" or ""Internet Bargain Source"" or from a stranger from who knows where, then, appear at a professional dealer counter shocked and dismayed to find out they were ripped off! Is the weapon stolen?Then take it out on the dealer who mistakenly engaged this otherwise ""Victim"" as a ""Genuine"" customer. In their frustration, they publish misinformation to make them feel comfortable with there self initiated dilemma.
This occurs in all facets of retail and repair establishments. The term I am searching for is ""Fools"".
As far as pricing, try to buy and sell AMMO and much worse ""Firearms"" to the adverage ""Citizen"" in the 70XXX zip codes!
I have had many NFA Class 3 transactions with ""Charles"" over the past 5 years. Some have taken a year to arrive at fruition. That was because the NFA process is not only complex, but, full to the brim with paperwork and gimmicks disguised as NFA Rules.
Go to Academy Sporting Goods and attempt to have night sights installed! Or try it yourself. I have several Para Ordinance, Smith & Wesson, Colt, ETC handguns and am thankful Charles sent them to Para-Smith-Colt in some cases because they were sophisticated designs and special very expensive tools are required to service same.
Charles is setup for Glock to the hilt, but to embrace all makes and models is kind of ridiculous. If you buy top end guns, cars, planes ETC, expect to paty top end service fees. This is common sense that seems to evade most of the ""Cheap Shot"" Reviews of the negative persuasion.
You complaining Review Guys ought to go buy into Tauras or Rossi not Para ETC.
Charlie stands behind everything I have ever bought at his store way longer than any warranty of the manufacturer.
Reliability is another factor. Military, Police, Civilian , and Sportsman alike are confident knowing when they walk out the door they have a working firearm.
Charles also donates to multiple public charitable institutions and national gun rights fondations.
And yes, he has yelled at me too, but I pissed him off right after one of you complainers. I yelled back then we laughed.
Go back to Leakview 70124 and look for a gun store!
