Default PPT experience at Elite Armory in Castro Valley?

Anyone has done PPT recently at Elite Armory in Castro Valley? Will they make you buy a gun lock? Just wondering if they have any weird policy for PPT. I did a PPT not long ago at the nearby Solar Tactical. They made me buy a lock even though the handgun came with an unopened CA compliant lock. And they even said they will not accept returns on the lock they sold me. Now I have another PPT coming up, I'm looking for alternative PPT locations. Thanks.

Nothing of that sort from Elite. In my experience if you have a lock with your pistol then you need not buy one.

Elite is about the friendliest gun store I have been to, the kicker is, they are nice to you even if they know you're not buying anything. Same thing can't be said for other shops.

I've bought new and PPT guns at Elite and the transactions were all smooth. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Thanks Sniperboy and Phalanx20mm, thank you for sharing your knowledge. Good to know there's a good LGS near me.

The guys at Elite Armory are the best. They are my preferred FFL for PPT's. Just make sure you or the seller bring a gun lock to include in the sale.

When I go and do PPT's now, I bring my FSC, driver's license, car registration and a gun lock. You can never be too prepared.

This is a bit suprising, as they had not told me this when I recently asked. I wonder if its a CYA type of thing.

Huh, first time I was allowed to return the lock purchased from them. This weekend it felt like "we don't care that you just bought one, jump through the hoop", so they lost a sale.

I also brought the recent receipt for said gun lock, bent over for another $8, not getting my return business.
