VERY CONDESCENDING TO A FEMALE! Yet owner kept pushing for a CASH SALE same day of first visit. Said I prefer Visa, he said prices were cut lower than stated, if a cash sale.Even when I was leaving, due to the double talk, PAUL not wanting to take any gun from case to show to me and treating me like a stupid person who never shot a gun in her life, Even then he kept saying don't buy anywhere else because i will always give you a better deal for cash. Hmmm, wonder why he is so hung up on CASH ONLY sales??I have read other reviews from plenty of people who said Paul is very RUDE and obnoxious to try to deal with. I did see the newest, but are the same 5 reviews in 3 diff places, maybe were from customers who came on owner's good day, or Paul & others wrote them? There are plenty of other places that treat their customers w/courtesy, like a return customer and their recommendations to friends, plus they have a lot more than 2 counters for display. Some of those stores even have ranges!

This gun shop is worth a visit...

Best Store for Personal Protection in Tampa Bay

Arms for Defense is an excellent firearms and accessories shop for everybody from the novice to the expert. Paul the owner creates a no pressure environment and if you are a novice, like I was at the time, he makes sure that you are comfortable with the firearm that you choose. For the novice, Paul's main objective is to teach you how to handle a weapon safely and also the responsibility involved with personal protection. Along with being an honest and respectful firearms and accessories dealer, Paul conducts Concealed Weapons License and other firearm safety training classes in a very professional, fun and informative setting. When it comes to personal protection, price doesn't or shouldn't matter but he offers the most competitive prices for firearms and firearm safety training classes in the Tampa Bay area. Thanks Paul I appreciate your help.
