In the interest of keeping Friday night interesting. OP, can you describe the person who offended you?

ETA: I'm just trying to figure out who it was.

Maybe I can help with a standard Newsday description.

I'm not going to say it didn't happen. I wasn't there. I'm just saying I've been there a bunch of times over the last few years. Sometimes it's a friggin zoo and sometimes it's kinda quiet.
I try to be patient and try not to waste their time especially if it's crowded. They show me whatever gun I ask to see and never pressure me. Keep in mind each person behind the counter has a different personality. There are some at CGT I prefer over others. The only place I've ever gotten ignored was at the old location American Outdoor Sports. I never bothered going to their new store.


I went to their new location. Nothing changed.

I know this is weird, but I like my gun shop to treat me like dung. If you ignore me, give me one word dismissive answers, and sell ammo 80% over the going internet rate, I am less inclined to impulse buy stuff.

Ok, I will bite. Has Coliseum treated you this way? If so, have you been there recently? They have bulk 9mm ammo at $13 a box, that isn't $80 percent over internet rate but I could be wrong.

Not to get defensive. But when you are busy, helping two people at a time. Sometime the interaction is rushed or course. No excuse but it happens.

I've bought a pistol at coliseum. It was a nice experience.

Once I needed an extra mag for an MDTS course.....this is before they were a sponsor here. Someone went out of their way hunting for one S&W .45 M&Pc mag for me. They came up with it. I might have paid a few dollars more than I would have on the internet....but I'm pretty sure it was at MSRP. So basically someone spent about 15 minutes rummaging through boxes and bins to make about $7 or so profit off me, so I could go learn stuff two days later.

That was a win.

I never dissed CGT, just expressed a tongue in cheek twist on the OPs butt hurt-ness. My wife bought my Beretta a300 for me last Christmas there, having never bought a gun before in her life, let alone venturing into a guns store. She was treated with the utmost respect, humor and patience at a very busy crowded time by the whatever youngish dude worked there. (My wife was the one who wanted the assurance she could return it if I didn't like it, like a gun is a pocketbook).

Anyway, I'm a big fan of CGT and have other good experiences there over the years. Other places, not so much. Happy now?
