I have been having truly horrific experiences lately with extremely large packs of coyotes around my property. We own 3 houses on our street. All next to eachother and it's 7.5 acres so a rather large area. I am still recovering from a broken hand after a motor bike accident and the large gun I have I am simply not able to hold with one hand. I am size 2 and 5'1, tiny in other words. I was at the end of my tether when I bit the bullet and called Wallenpaupack Sport Shop and spoke to a gentleman named Dave. Told him of my woes and how it had completely gotten out of control with these 4 legged invaders. Wonderful pro active man who told me what I need and how to go about getting it and how it would help me. Was very nice to me and didn't treat me like some bimbo ( Which was what I was afraid of if I went there ). I dropped into the shop today, Dave was not there but Chad tended to me. Also a very nice man. Full of useful information to help me make an educated decision. Asked me about my hand ( I have it in a brace for another 3 weeks yet ) and if I were left or right handed etc etc. He showed me one gun which seemed good but just didn't grab me. Asked me a few more questions. Answered them. Then I could see his mind ticking over and he showed me another. Perfect! Nice light weight handgun which I could operate easily with one hand and just balance with my defective hand while I was loading etc. Easy to load. Easy to hold. Easy to use. Not heavy. Accurate for the distances I would need it to be. Filled out the paperwork. Paid and was a happy camper. I got to meet Mark the owner. Who explained that women were great customers. He loved dealing with them. And I truly believe he was earnest in that comment. Offered me the phone number of a professional who would help me learn to use it correctly. Told me they would happily clean it for me when it needed it. He even gave me some mealworms for my ducks. Which were the target of these 4 legged invaders. Now I have a gun which will make a lot of noise, be accurate so I can irradicate a couple of these 4 legged invaders and hopefully any 2 legged invaders that mean us harm. All in all it was a great experience. I went in and was treated wonderfully. Came out with a gun with bullets. An education on the type of gun it was and how to use it correctly. And a healthy respect for the 3 men that work there. If you're a woman and want a gun for protection from 4 legged invaders or 2 legged invaders and don't want to seem like an idiot or get treated like one, pop in to see them. I can't say enough about how lovely there were and how helpful they were. All shops should conduct business in such a manner.
