Stopped by to visit Bruce @ Hunter Essentials yesterday afternoon. While I there I had the pleasure of meeting two of our fellow LIFers, Pete and Pat, who were picking up their group buy Saigas. Pleasure to meet both of you, and hope to see you again soon at a meet up or at the range.

Bruce is a top shelf guy - a class act to speak to and do business with, and a definite friend to the LIF community. I would encourage anyone to stop by to visit Bruce @ Hunter Essentials. Not a big shop space wise, but very interesting and diverse inventory - tactical as well as hunting. I picked up a like new(15 rounds through to site in, and orig. owner decided he wanted R-25) Remington 700 SPSV .308 with 4x12x40 Remington glass mounted for a VERY NICE deal. Looking forward to getting out to the range with it...

Do yourself a favor - stop in to see Bruce @ Hunter Essentials. You won't be sorry.

I know I will be back soon. Thanks Bruce!

Bruce is good people. But, I never seem to be able to stop in and just look around. I always leave the store a few dollars lighter than when I walked in. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing! :)

It was great meeting you also Frank. I told my wife that you forced me to not only buy the Saiga, but that Hi-Point also. ;) I hate to say it, but I like that thing better then the Saiga.

Bruce is a great guy and I will make the long trip down there to buy from him.

Glad to hear you are enjoying the HP995 TS. No sweat, I am happy to "take the bullet" for you..lol.
You definitely got a great deal on the HP, but it seems that most dealings with Bruce are mutually beneficial. I will be going back to Bruce, frequently. He is definitely pro LIF, and I hope everyone will take / get the opportunity to stop in and meet him and check out Hunter Essentials at some point.

Hope to see you at an upcoming meet-up soon.

Stay safe, shoot well, have fun.

If Bruce isn't expecting you, you might just want to give him a call to make sure he'll be in the shop when you arrive.

Thanks, that must be pretty close to Classic Arms in Mineola, which is near Willis avenue but on rt. 25. What kind of inventory does he have? Does he stock parts and accessories for EBR's? (evil black rifles).

Yeah thanks but I can order whatever I need quick too. I just wish there was at least one gunstore on the Island with a Decent selection of parts on hand, like various caliber AR uppers, hanguards, grips, piston uppers, Larue parts, spikes, etc....sigh
