Walt know older weapons like nobody else. Yes Cabelas may be less but the clerks there know less thank I do. 40-50 dollars is what most stores charge for a FFL transfer. They are a business and need to pay the bills. You did buy the weapon from elsewhere didn't you. Mike
Great gunsmith, gun and Tactial equipment. Very knowledgeable staff. Excellent experiences overall. The very best in the Oakland County Michigan area.
This is absolutely the worst gun shop I have ever been to. The prices are ridiculous, and the staff is at best rude and at worst blatantly insulting. The grandson has personally handed me an uncleared handgun, and then raised his voice at me when I cleared it and pulled the trigger to drop the striker. I have personally experienced, and witnessed multiple times both Walt and the grandson berate customers for placing gun cases or firearms on their precious glass show cases. FOR GODS SAKE BUY SOME MATS if it is that important to you. Their FFL transfer fees are ridiculous at $50. Honestly, their is no redeeming quality to this store in any way shape or form. I have popped in once a year for probably the past 8 years, and have never seen anything that resembled a fair price let alone a deal. Same old over-priced guns, same old bottom of the barrel courtesy and service. Quite frankly, this store is a determent to the shooting community in Livingston County.
This place has the worst possible customer service I have ever encountered. And their prices are way too high compared to anyone in the state. Transfer fees are more than double of any FFL out there. Will never get any business from me. Stay away from here folks!
Just awful. Grandson is an idiot and the old man is a d-bag. I will not be going there anymore and I suggest you do the same. Why would I patronize a store that disrespects its customers.
I happen to stop in this place and noticed they had .22 long rifle. I made a stop every day to pick up two boxes. In the meantime I was looking for a friendly place as guns galore a place I dont desire to spend my money. I had several talks with Walt's grandson granted he's knowlegable but disrespectful too. I questioned about getting accessories to my hand gun. When I pulled my hand gun to unload it. The grandson went bazurk said don't expect to pull a gun unless you want one pointed at you. I was wtf? I have been to many gun shops they have no problem as long as you unload. Also this kid trys to tell me its brandishing..dude its not I work law enforcement and I wasnt weaving my weapon with disregard. Knows lot about guns. But do you law studying too. I will choose no to do buisness with someone so rude. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/_/dict.aspx?rd=1&word=brandishing
I can't believe the amount of high quality rifles and tac equipment Oakland Tactical carries! Their online store made it very easy for me to make my purchase, and when I called to ask a question Mike was extremely knowledgable and helpful. There's no better gun shop in the Detroit area for quality equipment and service!
I bought an old revolver a couple years ago that worked out well. The secret to getting along with Walt is be sure to wipe your feet at the door, don't bring in any drinks or snacks, be prepared to be talked down to , berated or ridiculed and for goodness sake, don't touch or put any item on top of the glass countertops.Other than that, a great place to find the unusual firearm.
I had a rifle shipped to me through Powder Keg. They were extremely helpful with the process as its the first time I've been through it. They made it a pretty painless procedure. From the first phone call I made until I left with rifle in tote, they were helpful and informative. I found it best that as long as I treated Walt with respect, he treated me .likewise. The seller of the rifle I purchased nearly gave up with selling to me due to the way he was treated from another gun shop that had great review. The seller was pleased when I asked him to change over to the Powder Keg and made it so I could own the holy grail of my personal collection. Many thanks to Walt and the guys!
What A D- Bag this old man should just close the dam doors if he doesnt want to do business. I took 2 beautiful and collectable firearms in to have him look at them. He asked what I want for my Luger P08 I tell him a starting price and he was like, I cant come near that. Well what would you offer? His response "whats that matter". Hmmm I thought thats how you negotiate? but any way never again will I turn his door knob. and neither should you.
