Default J&R Customer feedback

Just wanted to drop by and give this shop a two thumbs up for service and a friendly staff. Picked up a Springfield 1911 and couldn't be happier. Thanks J & R.

Default A big thank you...

Just got back home from paying you guys a visit this afternoon. Got some serious thinking to do and I'm really leaning towards that S&W SW1911 model 108285 you guys had there.

You guys incredibly helpful and answered all of my questions regarding Kimber, S&W, and Springfield 1911's but you had one of the nicest shops I've seen outside of Bay Area Gun Vault. I really wanted to give you guys a big thank you for making the trip worth it. ^_^

I know this is not Yelp, but when I think about moving to Livermore, J&R actually adds value to my potential moving experience. This is a no B.S., no shady, no made-up-nonsense gun store. Clean, professional, and no pressure. The best.

Great place and great customer service! And I just went in to buy pmag. But location is quite inconvenient. Other than that A+++ one of the best I've been to by far!

Just to throw my $0.02 in here, I have 3 stores within 10 minutes yet I still will drive the 30 to go to J&R's. The employees are knowledgeable and more than willing to take the time to talk to you, even if you don't buy. Just a little J&R story for you. I went to the reloading class a while back. With a store full of paying customers, a lady walked in with her young son. She indicated she was not buying yet, but wanted her son to understand that guns were not scary in case she decided to. The staff took the time to help her just as if she was paying, even though she indicated she did not mind waiting while they handled paying customers. +1000 for excellent customer service and friendly attitude. Shop Local, Shop J&R's!

Just went in to take care of a dealer transfer. The owner is a great gentleman, with much patience. The store is very clean, and well organized. I will certainly go back. Thank you for a pleasant transaction.

Well, I'm in Vacaville, yet I've done a number of purchases and PPT at J&R. It's worth the two hour round trip as I always find something I need (want) and learn something new.

Thank you,

Did a PPT on Wednesday at J & R sports:

Two big thumbs up, this place has a great selection of guns and knowledgeable staff.

Couldn't have been more pleased with their process or attitude. This is the place to go!

I bought a firearm from J&R last month (and also hung out while a friend bought one). I'd never been to the shop before, but I'd read good things and they had the item that I wanted in stock, so I drove a little over an hour to get there. I'm really glad I did.

We got help from three different folks behind the counter, and they were all patient and informative without the all too common gun shop snobbery.

Randy offered to walk me through field stripping and cleaning on pickup. I took him up on it and he spent quite a bit of time answering my questions and discussing some issues.

This was the best gun shop experience that I've had in a years. I recommend them.

I enjoy J&R's, last time I stopped by inventory seemed low but the staff is friendly and helpful. I was there last with a friend of mine and he talked the clerks ear off while she patiently listened so that is worth a lot in my opinion.

I think something that is valid to remember is that any shop (gun, car, hobby, etc) can be staffed with a larger number of employees with varying levels of experience, knowledge, opinions and personalities. Not everyone can mesh with everyone else and people can interpret situations differently.

Lastly I do think it's worth mentioning that J&R's has NEVER fumbled paperwork, mis-quoted timing/price or in any other way made a mistake during a transaction that cost me time or money. That is something I can't say about many shops. Multiple times I've had to revisit other shops due to their errors.

I've made several purchases there over the last couple of years since a coworker turned me onto the place. I've been very happy with the service and atmosphere every time. I always recommend them and will continue to do business with them going forward.

Did a PPT first thing this past Friday. Person who helped us was VERY nice, fast and efficient. Seemed to have a good supply of arms and equipment.

Hell they were even niceand helpful to the two gang banging hoodlems that walked in looking for some info about a gun the popo had taken away from one of them. LOL

Anyway I would recommend them as a preferred CalGuns gunshop to give your business to based on my experience.

Other gunshops I would recommend you get more ladies to work your counters like J&R, didnt sense the good ol'boy attitude at all you get at many other gunshops in NoCal.

Default J and R, courteous, honest, and patient

Recently picked up a pistol that JR agreed to handle the transfer for from an out of state seller. Unfortunately, my DROS was held up by CA DOJ for 6 months because of a NICS record error! Still, Randy was patient and waited for the matter to clear w/ no hassle. Thanks again.

I actually just picked up my first "firearm" which was a stripped lower that I bought online. Ashley was very professional and friendly when going through the process with me. You guys will be my go to shop and I highly recommend others to do business with you.
