I’ve personally had good experiences there. Everyone has been friendly and helpful and I’m not a LEO. I’m very price conscious, if I don’t like a price, then I move on.

Since it is the store on sunrise. I’ve never had issues with these guys. Gets me good deals on firearms in stock and usually has what I’m looking for when shopping.

I've been dealing with Mark and his crew since the good old days of the Merrick Sportsman. Mark has taken a small business and turned it into a large and well stocked LGS that serves our community well. Dealing, in part, on the internet is part of nearly every retail establishment, big or small. Scarce firearms virtually set their own price and someone, somewhere is looking for everything. A local store has limited reach. Without utilizing all avenues of retail you just might not survive.

 

While I live closer to other small shops, my first stop is usually HS when I need something firearm related. Lets help all of these shops survive the next 4 difficult years by banning together and avoiding the type of posts that tend to divide us.

You also have to remember that small LGS aren't getting new stock of merchandise right now.  They don't get shipments of guns, power, primers or anything.   The big stores are getting a fraction of what they order.   I really don't think they have much of a choice but to sell high at this point, otherwise they simply don't have anything to sell.

Mark is a nice guy as are all of his staff. I have bought many items from him, a few just recently. Will do business with again I am sure.

Remember it called war time profiteering. You all bitch about shop charging ridiculous  mark ups on ammo back under Obama but you still went to them after it was over. There were few shops that charge a reasonable price for the same ammo. I have step foot in those stores.
