“NO LOADED FIREARMS” as per Lloyd’s of London the insurance carrier.
I’d rather have a firearms store that is open and doing business than offending a customer because did not the the store rules.

Lighthouse Guns & Gear

Lighthouse Guns & GEAR has a NO LOADED GUNS policy as per our insurance company coverage. I would rather keep my shop open than worry about hurting a customers feelings. If you cannot follow the shop policy and rules you are welcome to shop elsewhere.

Since the Sig on my hip wasn't welcome I turned on my heels and left. I would have liked to give my business to a mom and pop guy but Cabelas will get a several hundred dollar purchase instead of this jack wagon.

When he had the store in Elkridge it was actually the closest LGS to me but after having a completely terrible experience in there the one time I darkened the door I drove past him every time to do business with 2A Sales in Jessup.

Nice to hear your side of the story at least.

The only "bad experience" I had with the store was one weekend me and the father-in-law decided to drop by but they were closed due to being at a show. Not really their fault, I probably should have checked the website, it most likely would have told me.

Owner is Stuart very knowledgable
Agreed, I have always found the owner very helpful. He has gone out of his way to help me out numerous times.

Done and done. And when you piss off enough customers you will have no business.

Accurate Pawn was actually the closest shop to the Stove Palace for many years. I was in there exactly ONE time years ago with one of my employees who was looking for a M&P9 and I didn't think it was possible to be treated any ruder than we were that day, Gus was a complete and total jackass.

Never again, I drove right past that shop many times and have spent a metric ass load of money at 2A Sales in Jessup, a shop that has NO PROBLEM welcoming me and my LOADED FIREARM when making a purchase and actually act like they are happy to see me and glad to make a sale.

I guess you all changed insurers when you moved to Delaware because that sign wasn't on the door of the Elkridge location.

Like I'm going to take off my gun to shop in a gun store....geddafugoudahere

And what kind of goofball insurance company would give you lower premiums if you put up a sign that keeps a portion of your clientele from ACTUALLY DOING BUSINESS WITH YOU?

Oh, that's right, a British company.

And yet gun shops all over these 57 United States do business every day without a "No Loaded Firearms" sign and actually welcome law abiding gun owners, how can this be?
