Yes.


if they are not in it for the profit, then they are not engaged in the business of an FFL... And, correct me if I am wrong, the ATF can pull their license if they are being a hobbyist.

I have three people that do it as hobbies. Mostly for Boy Scouts repairing guns, buying guns and making parts. One does it strictly for his boss(art dealer). They have had them for 15+ years.

Didn't see a thread for this place so I'll open one up. Didn't want to post it in their sub-forum because the moderator there is the store and they might delete this post.

A few years ago their prices were pretty good. Over the years I've purchased several pistols and rifles from them at different price points. They never had super rare stuff and occasionally I had issues with staff attitudes. The owner also seemed kind of smug and condescending and I found I often preferred shopping there when he wasn't in the store as he had sometimes made rude comments about inquires on pricing or other questions. Definitely not the most welcoming environment for those new to firearms.

Over time OE/Sportco and FWDG started beating them more and more on price. Ammo was never that great a deal compared to Walmart or Ammoseek.

Some issues I had with this shop for business stuff were:
telling me they had something over the phone, driving down there and suddenly its out of stock but look at this! classic bait and switch
taking customers out of order even when I had been in there first and waiting for help and then ignoring me when I pointed it out
condescending attitude towards new shooters with lots of questions
got nasty when asked to dry fire a pistol ONE TIME that I wound up buying, and they didn't even offer snap caps for customers to use

And now the elephant in the room:
Earlier in 2018 the owner decided to appoint himself the de-facto ambassador of the "gun community" and offer a bogus compromise where he wanted to trade raising the age to buy common semi automatic rifles with a nebulous promise not to ban them or magazines. He then said his store was going to enact this policy. He also said he'd make exceptions for 18-20 year olds who had made it through basic training/bootcamp/etc. Not only was this age discrimination, this was also disability discrimination too for all the 18 year-olds who could not join the military due to disability. He then started trying to say 'well, the parents can buy it and then do what they want with it' with an obvious implied reference for advocating straw purchases for parents to their children, which is both legally shocking for an FFL to say and also discriminatory to those who don't have living parents or who have anti-gun parents.
I tried reasoning with him and left a review on Yelp which he got removed when Yelp scrubbed all recent reviews due to his media blowup. He ignored my specific issue of 18 year olds who cannot join the military for medical reasons and left a garbled, misspelled response repeating his nonsensical approach.
I would strongly urge everyone to avoid this business. We do not need to enrich anyone who seeks to reduce the number of gun owners. Not only are 18 year olds adults who are legally responsible for themselves, but they can be drafted to die for their country. They should have the same self-defense rights as a 21 year old. Also, restricting 18-20 year olds will put more young people off of gun ownership and shrink our voting pool which will have bad gun control implications down the road. Do we really want to alienate 18-20 year old voters?
I see they have some black Friday sales posted. Not sure how since I blocked them..

You and me both. It kinda sucks. He’s right next to one of my job sites, so I’ve got a place for the truck that can’t get into most parking lots. He’s got decent prices, for a Dick.

They have their own sub-section and are a mod of it.
Us regular folks can't put mods on ignore, even if their name is not in green or red.

It isn’t necessary for us who are trying with the small part of our heart that might be oriented towards the good to allow people that are manipulating us with historical ignorance and philosophical sleight of hand to render us so god damn guilty about what our ancestors may or may not have done so that we allow our shame and our guilt to be used as tools to manipulate us into accepting a future that we do not want to have. ~ Jordan B.
