If you are concealed weapons permit holder and are carrying, you will be asked to disarm before going into this store. This makes no sense to me. Obviously, they can run their business however they would like but I don't think it's a good idea to alienate (what could be) a large part of your customer base. There are a couple of reasons why this policy makes no sense: 1.) As a concealed weapons permit holder, one must pass background checks and prove that they are not and never have been, a criminal. 2.) Concealed means CONCEALED. Were it not for my honesty, no one would have ever known I even had a weapon on me. The salesperson mentioned something about almost being accidentally shot but then if some idiot pulled out his concealed gun, it wouldn't have been concealed anymore, would it? 3.) By asking people to disarm, the shop and its employees are basically asking you to put your trust in them to protect you in the unlikely event someone were to walk in and rob the place. No offense to anyone who works in that shop but I trust me.The shop looks nice and the people seem nice. I can't speak to their prices because I didn't last in there that long but I'll not spend money in a place that does not want me. This policy is wrong and should be reconsidered. Now, more than ever, all gun owners must stand together and when we are demonizing others within our own group it just gives more leverage to those that are working hard to take our rights away from us. Concealed carry should be encouraged but it should also remain concealed - don't alienate your customers!!!!
Excellent customer service. This is the place to go if you are a novice, like me, or even a seasoned firearms owner. They answer all your questions and DON'T make you feel stupid in the process. You can walk around anywhere in the store and pick up any firearm (that isn't holstered), go behind the counters and touch and examine any item for sale in the store. Mike is a wealth of information. His integrity is beyond compare. If he doesn't like a product, he doesn't sell it, but he won't bad-mouth it in the process. He doesn't bad-mouth the competition either. They do business their way, he does his his way. Mike gave me advice on what ammo I should carry for my particular needs, and I agree with his reasoning for the suggestion. Their prices are the lowest in the area, and I really shopped around. No fee for background checks done on firearms purchased in his store. I will shop here for all my firearms needs...no reason to go anywhere else.
Mike and his employees are the best I have ever dealt with...I am 87, been shooting rifles over 70-years, taught skeet shooting in US Navy for 2-years during WW11, benchrest shooter for 50-years and varmint hunter for 75-years. I stopped in the shop, showed Mike my 700-Rem in 243 Win and asked him to fit a scope. Mike started from the top and worked down to my price-range; I bought it and h took me to his range and watched me fire it for over an hour...no charge. The "Shooters Den" in W. Melbourne should not be missed for gun lovers. They talk to you straight, if you don't like what you hear....try Wal-Mart......fhall6
