Found out about this place through a friend. When she was telling me about how much stuff that was in this building, I really thought that she was lying. I decided to go and check out this business. When I first walked into the door I was soooo overwhelmed. The amount of things that was in there, and the prices was just reasonable. I just could not believe it! I came out with so much good quality things, and I didn’t pay $50.00. I encourage any and everyone to go check out this business. I have not stop talking about the place and what I had brought. I’ve even brought other people with me to check it out. I give the service and the amount, quality of merchandise 100 thumbs up!
I'm never going here again!I put a gun on hold and then I had some financial problems and wasn't able to pay it off I was told I could use the deposit as store credit at the very least by ammo and every time I've gone to the store the owner Pat hides in the back and whatever staff he has there says they can't use store credit without him there!I've literally seen him run to the back of the store when I come in and so I'm pretty much out $200 because when I called the store they always say he's not there or that they closed early for some kind of remodel.
Great staff, helpful, informative and very friendly, enjoyed shopping there. Pat walked me through how to handle the gun and we probably talk a good hour or so about sporting stuff. I felt like a friend who stopped by, I also went in the store knowing what I was looking for....... The price was a bit better than I expected, I will definitely go back!
Treated me great, excellent experience!!!I needed to sell some guns and had called the store to arrange to bring them by. Pat was very accommodating to say the least. I am learning to walk on a new prosthetic and he told me to just pull in front of the shop and the guys would come out and get the guns to take them inside. Pat made sure I was comfortable in a chair and the guys looked over my guns and offered very good prices. I was very pleased with the numbers and we made the deal. Also bought a Mossberg 500 while there at a great price. Being in that shop was terrific, the team made me feel at home and I loved the way they connect with their customers. It was a busy day at the shop, and Pat the owner, never let 5 minutes go by without seeing if I needed anything or wanted something to drink. They are knowledgable and very fair. I expected to get less for my guns than I actually did..To top it off, Pat called me the day after to ask how I liked the Mossberg. Class. Why would you go anywhere else??
After visiting several stores in the capital district, I have found that this shop has the best deals available. They were able to give me a great price on a relatively rare gun that I was unable to find in other stores (or even online). They also purchased a few weapons from me at a price that was fair.
I recently cleaned out my attic and came across an old rifle that was left by the previous owners around 20 years ago. The rifle was obviously old and in bad condition. I was able to speak with the gunsmith who gave me some information on the gun, its value, and the work required to fix it. Due to its condition it would have cost more to fix it than it was worth in the retail environment. I applaud and appreciate their honesty and help, as no other shop in the area would assist me or give the time of day. As an older widow I felt as if I was being mocked and treated with disrespect, I was even laughed at to my face at a "well known" shop in the area, however at Taylor and Vadney I felt the comfort one should feel when going into a private business. They were honest and kind, helpfull and resourcefull. Fine young gentleman to deal with!
I have shopped at Taylor and Vadney for over 15 years I have always been treated very well and fair. I've always found their prices to be very reasonable. When I was down and out Pat was and is still there to lend a helping hand. I would bring a friend there to do business. I have made many purchases and trades there and have done very well. I recommend all of my friends to Taylor and Vadney and will make sure that continues.
Do not go here.... All the staff here are horribly rude. Not sure how they are still in business. Everything in that store is disgustingly inflated. I would recommend ANY other gunshop in NYS before this one. Don't listen to the good reviews, they are so clearly people who either own the shop or people who know the people who own the shop its insane. This place was charging OVER the MSRP before this big rush on guns. These guys are CROOKS plain and simple.
Excellent customer service and a knowledgable staff. I have recently started applying for my permit. The staff was very patient with me and knew alot about each gun i looked at and how to disassemble and reassemble all of them. I was also impressed with their selection.Even during the shortages in guns and ammunition, their shelves were stocked full and they had plenty of ammo. Even .22LR which I can't seem to find anywhere now. Great experience, I highly recommend.
pat didn't keep his word with me.HE kept calling my home harassing me over a bad review.Told me I had to remove it and write a good review .In return he would give me the Remington 597 rifle and give me my money back.When I went back to get my money back Pat started berateing me on writieng a bad review. I could tell he wasn't going to keep his word with me.I managed to get a gun case a bag of patches and a cheap knife.Don't go to Taylor and Vadney If they can't keep their word with you. Don't trust them.Pat kept calling my home . I asked how do I know you will keep your word . He said If I don't you can put your negative review back up. so here it is .
