Rudeness is amazing

Why do we put up with these old wrinkly shopkeepers who decide if you don't already know what you want and are gonna pay whatever they ask then its not worth their time. It's because we keep excusing it and saying oh how would you feel if someone asked you dumb questions. That is part of retail! If you don't like dumb questions retire and move to Florida. Ok that's my rant. Im talking about accurate pawn and tackle in Elkridge. The parking and the stock is not worth the time. Do yourself a favor and drive 2 min down the road to 2a and see mark.

I stopped going into that place a long time ago he's never been helpful and is always nasty. With that being said he offers a good deal every once in a while

vote with your dollars. i pass many shops on my way to freestate (30 min away) that are allot closer and more convenient. but if your not gonna treat me like a person, im not gonna do business with you. its a shame they dont realize how tight knit the shooting community is, and that one stupid remark will not just loose them one customer but many many potential buyers.

Truthfully even if it was a great deal I won't be spending a single dollar in that place. Or any other that has rude employees or owners. It doesn't take a ton of energy to answer dumb questions and be nice to people who are about to spend hundreds or even thousands in the store. Maybe we should have a section that rates stores on non rudeness. Maybe to keep the new firearms shopper from being blindsided and discouraged.

Having bought from a number of places over the years, there are only two I would buy from at this point that are a reasonable distance from my home. There is one or two closer, but the rudeness and arrogance factors keep me away.

Wow I'm kinda relieved that it's not only because I'm a noob. Even the more experienced are being treated with disrespect. Atleast they're not discriminating. Lol.

I live in Montgomery County and there are 4 shops within 15 minutes of my place. None of them are horrible. But none of them have been outstanding either. So instead of spending my hard earned money at them, I choose to drive 35 mintues to a shop that has always been first rate. Its a shop where if your just stopping by to see whats new, buying some ammo, or spending a couple grand, youre treated the same. With respect and appreciation. I wish all other shops operated the same way.

I have to agree. I am not that knowledgeable about firearms in general. I often have questions, and want recommendations. I have been very happy going to Gun Connection, and will keep doing business with them.

Being an IP here shouldn't be a magic shield from criticism.
