Im DROS'ing a gun there. Small place, friendly staff. Don't know much more about them than that.

Yea I just wanted to get some background before I go in there to drop some money on parts.

They are fine. No issues. Another good place is Island View in Ventura.

Great place - many happy transaction with them.

Tim, the owner, is awesome. And most of his staff is great. Some of them are a bit quiet/shy, but they always take care of me. Pretty small little shop but overall great place.

Awesome I am going over there after work tomorrow (since they are closed Mondays) to check out some AR lowers.

Thanks for the input

I hear they are great though.:cool2:

Nothing but good experiences with them... In fact I've got something on the way there right now! Bill

:iagree: Why not call them? Everytime I've called they picked up, I think Tim has my number memorized though :D

Never heard a complaint.

The shop can be hard to find, especially at night. You have to be traveling East on LA Ave, and its the next driveway past Der Wienerschnitzel.

One more thumbs up for Fort Courage. Tim's a really nice guy and everyone else that I've delt with there have been friendly and knowledgeable.

Just got back from there...staff was awesome. And I got a range date setup for my wife since she is a little worried about having a gun in the house since she has never shot before. One of the staff members (Female..Desiere...my spelling is horrible) offered to take her to the range and get her comfortable with guns before I bring my new one home. Think I found my new favorite place.

I concur. FCA and Tim are good people.
They live by their title of being the friendly gun shop without the attitude.

Yes 3 or 4 times they are great!

I've had very good experiences at FCA and I can't say the same for Greta's.

Resonable price on FFl. Would use them again. Another good place is Uncle Pauls in Ventura
