This is the worst business ever!!!! Do not shop here!!!!! I had to call the police to come with me to pick up my weapon because they refused to give it back to me, even after the personally damaged my scope mounts that I put on the gun. They did not tell me that they broke my scope mounts! They did not tell me that they were fixing them! They told me nothing. The owner verbally abused myself and my husband on the phone and in person even with the cop in the store. This is not the first time this has happened apparently and I will be reporting this incident to the Better Business Bureau to hopefully get this business shut down. I will never refer anyone here and I strongly recommend to never give this person business ever again. They are rude and do not deserve to be in business! They even threatened to sell my gun even after they admitted to destroying my personal belongings. I will be looking to take this matter to the courts.


As a retired police office, Ch...

As a retired police office, Charlie is extremely knowledegable about all firearms. He has been in this line of business for many years. If you purchase a weapon at Donovan's Guns you can rest assured that when you leave you will know how the weapon works and all of your questions were answered.


If you want your firearm(s) ke...

If you want your firearm(s) kept for months on end I would suggest go to Donavan's place....he's great at that.

But just in case you want your firearm back a.s.a.p. then find a place other then his place.

His respect for customers is NIL and his attitude is even worse.

I'll drive 100 miles out my way to go to a shop where they have respect for their customers and greet them in a friendly manner before I ever visit Donavan's again.

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!

great place for guns/ammo

although the owner may come off as rude at times, he knows what he is talking about. as a retired police officer, his store is the perfect place to buy a gun.. he can answer any question you have.

Donovan's Guns-- a hobby shop for the owner.

The shop has some neat stuff, but the owner has a serious attitude problem and his prices are absurd. The store has got to be more of a hobby, tax shelter or provides him with Class III availability rather than a business serving paying customers. I took my wife in for a 9mm and was told in a really rude tone ""they're right there in front of you."" Needless to say we left immediately. Gun shop owners put up with tons of crap from gangbangers and shadow purchasers, BUT its a major miracle this guy is still open and has an FFL.

Terrible Attitude

Owner talked down to me the whole time and acted like he had more important things to do than make a sale. I'll never go to Donovan's.



I went into this gun store. I asked the price of a riffle. I was given a price with tax. I paid for the Riffle in full. I was told that the riffle would be instock within 90 days. It took 7 months for the riffle to come in.

I went in to pick the riffle up and He said that I owed him an additional $400.00 because the demand for the gun went up. I asked him how can you raise the price of something after I was given a price and I paid in full.

The owner then became rude and I rate. He stated that he could sell the riffle tomorrow for more money than he was getting from me within two day. He told me to take it or leave it. IF YOU ARE SMART DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS SHOP. WHAT A RIP OFF!!!!!!!
