I'm in the process of trying to buy my first brand new firearm. (My existing shotguns and rifles have all been secondhand....) Thing is, I'm struggling to get someone to take my money!! The rifle I want to buy is readily available and together with the mod will put £1300 in someone's till.
I don't seem to be able to get a call back with a price! I called one business about four times and even went to their store, where they were still unable to help me, being more concerned with slating the product I wanted, attempting to sell me something significantly over my budget and being rather unprofessional with their comments about some of their distributors. I'm now on my second store, who were very helpful at the outset, but since then have not come back to me with a price!
I'm a very polite customer and ready to place an order. I run a large retail business, so understand both sides of the coin. If we treated our customers this way, we'd be out of business very quickly....
Is this normal for gun shops?
