While I was told that Atlantic's gunsmith had a six-month backlog, they replaced a recoil buffer in my old P9S while I waited. No charge.

It's the little things like that that count. When they're gone, driven into retirement because of online sales, see if you can get your computer to do a bit of free gunsmithing. Or try the kid at Wallyworld.

They're great like that. I have bought my first AR from them and 2 handguns and they treat you really well. If it's a quick fix they will do it right there free of charge. I always end up buying some ammo whenever I go cause of the way they treat you.

Much as I like to bitch about their pricing, the guys in Rockville were helpful in doing a quick install of a pivot pin in an AR-15 lower for me. In truth, their prices on accessories aren't out of this world, and I did pick up an UpLULA.

During my lunch break I went to the Rockville location and bought a Kel-Tec PF 9. I really enjoy their customer service and the price was right...

I bought the chrome version which was $339. It seems like these little guns are flying off the shelf. They sold 3 of them within an hour.

Also, just to let everyone know they are having a glock sale on Feb 19-20 http://www.atlanticguns.com/sales_events.html

$340 for a PF9 is, surprisingly, pretty damned good. I ought to see if they're selling the Sub-2k next time I go in.

Went back to the Rockville store for the first time in many months to get a feel on the SIG P250. I'll keep comments about their new gun prices to myself, but I did find a used Tactical at a decent price. Now I'm in day 1 of the 9-day wait.

Maybe the secret in shopping there is to look at used guns only.

I was in a few weeks back and they had one on the rack in the back corner. Can't remember if it was a 9mm or 40

I bought mine there a few years back.

I have purchased 3 new handguns at the Rockville store. Their prices are very high but I have always gotten quick, attentive, cheerful and knowledgeable service from them. They are 15 minutes from my house so i guess I'm paying for that and convenience as well.

No more guns for a while.

I stopped in the silver spring store on wednesday, and picked up an elzetta light mount for my ar15. They were very friendly, and had a pretty impressive selection of firearms. They also had a decent amount of ammo. I think I'll stop in whenever business takes me near silver spring from now on.
