So a buddy of mine is ready to get a few more lowers, but it seems like EVERY gunshop in the San Francisco Bay Area who stocks lowers doesn't use AMEX, and he refuses to use VISA due to past issues. I know many good or fair dealers exist, like Irvington, Bullseye, Triple A, Antioch, etc

So I guess, between Vallejo/Vacaville, and Monterey, is there a gunshop that sells complete lowers or stripped receivers that also takes AMEX???

Buy 'em online and ship them to Rogers Relics.

Amex done.

As much as I like to support my local dealers, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

It's too bad you missed out on the $89 lowers from Riflegear. They could have shipped to your local dealer, and you would have saved some cash, AND you would have earned AMEX points :)

CalNRA, just buy online and use amex. Try to group your purchases so that you leverage the transfer fee. Roger's Relics is my go-to FFL for those. God knows I used AMex a lot last year on 2A purchases. :)

People dont like AMEX cards. I dont blame them. There fees AMEX makes the business pay on each purchase a customer makes with the card are CRAZY. We hate when people use AMEX at our business. Sometimes we loose money on sales because the fees are retarded they make us pay and the profit starts to get lost. Its like 5% (they should charge that to the buyer for using the card, not the business who is doing amex a favor by letting customers use there card)

I use cash and checks for firearms purchases.

I always use good old cash for the gun purchases also.
But then, I refues to get on the Amex band wagon.

Buy a billet lower from Quentin Defense/Laser online. They're billet and only $154. They really are excellent. Pay cash for DROS/Fee.

Gorilla logic here.
Simple don't accept AMEX and that solves your problem.
