Most non franchise gun stores charge fees. When their markup on a gun is $50, that $18 really digs into the profit margin.

What about when thier markup on ammo was 100%? Or when they were selling normaly priced $12 pmags for over $50?

I was in the new store today, Chester hooked me up with the last Shield 9mm they had in stock. It was busy but Chester and 2 other staff took time to answer any question I had while Nics went thru.

If you have a gripe, by all means open your own thread to make a statement. Don't like the prices or policies move on, pretty lame to puke on the vendors grand opening thread. I thought we WaGuns members had a touch more class.

do you charge your customers the credit card fee? even when they are willing to do business with you?



What credit card fee? The only credit card fee that has ever been charged in either of the stores was on some of the GLOCK LE when we were making $20 on them, and then the fee was 2.5%.

I forgot about this one, there is a $1, (one dollar) fee for debit or credit in the Lakewood store for purchases under ten dollars ($10) so that they aren't losing money on a transaction. I forgot about that.

Pretty sure Unicorn addressed this about 3 posts up, which makes me think you're just a troll at this point.

Let me guess, you have an axe to grind with SAA over a perceived slight and now it's your personal mission to spread lies and bullshit on the internet in an attempt to dissuade cumstomers?

:ffight:

There is no credit card fee except in those few cases. Oh, about three years ago there was a 2.5% fee on credit cards on LE/mil SIGs. That hasn't been in effect since like 2010 though, not since they changed their MAP pricing again.
There has never been a 3% fee.

You are talking about the actual stores though right? Not the completely separate gunshows? Those might have a card fee, I have no idea. Show pricing is structured differently and has been even before there was a physical store (just the website and shows).

IF you're talking about one of the stores, bring me a receipt (Tacoma, Sat-Wed). Or scan and post it. Prove me wrong and I'll do what I can to make it right... or get in trouble trying.
Again though, the Lakewood or Tacoma store. Not the online business or the gunshows.

Send me a pm with your name, and maybe the sn. I'll see if I can get someone there to reprint the receipt for me. Or I'll just find the time to head there.
