Selection is pretty good. Prices on firearms are about $50 higher than some other stores in the area and $75-$100 higher than prices at gun shows. Ammo is WAY over priced. Some of the sales guys are pretty good about helping. I like the outdoor range. But they charge $12 PER Gun, so if you have only one gun to shoot, the price is OK. But if you have several guns to shoot, the cost can get pretty high.
I usually stop by there and browse all the items i would like to get, and then go home and order them on the internet for a much lower cost.
I have never met a more rude bunch of guys in all my life. The people there are arrogant, rude, and it seems like they don't want customers in there. I will never go back there again. In fact, I would pay more for a gun at some other place than give these people my business. They make you feel like you are an idiot and have no right to be there. Not to mention they are way overpriced.
I went to Carter's Country off of 59 and I have to admit that this store is pretty bad. I was looking at buying an AR-15 ($1000-$2500 gun). I had done some basic research online and simply wanted to discuss some things with a knowledgeable salesperson so I could figure out what I wanted to buy. Not only was I told incorrect information which I corrected the salesperson on (he then backtracked) I was made to feel like I was bothering him. After a few other attempts to discuss the type of gun I wanted, I finally left in disgust over the poor treatment.
Yes, it was a saturday and they were very busy, but they are selling guns, not cell phones. These guys should be willing to work with a customer to ensure they are making the correct purchase. If I just wanted to buy a gun I'd go to Gander Mountain or another chain. I go to a local shop to get good customer service and technical advice. These folks don't seem to understand that. Just understand that if you go here you better know exactly what you want or else you will be treated poorly (think of Wal-Mart). I feel a gun purchase is very important, so I'll find a smaller store that will cater to my needs (and I understand I'll pay for that too). I'll also advise everyone I know to do the same.
Carter's Country lost a potential young long term customer over their unwillingness to have a 30-45 minute discussion over an important large purchase. They seem to be doing very well, but they won't get any of my buisness and I intend on buying quite a few guns over the next few years as I expand my collection.
