Default The Gun Room in Elk Grove... anti OLL

I went there today, and brought my AR 9mm and was told that they weren't allowing AR series, and AK series rifles anymore.
I have been there once before(recently), and when checking my guns, they asked if I had reg. papers for my AW. I responded that it wasn't an AW... so on, and so forth(recited penal codes and Ca. laws regarding listed/unlisted guns). An older(and wiser) RO heard me say that it was a fixed 10rd mag. He stepped in and gave me the go-ahead.
Today, the same thing happens... I explain, take out my cheat sheet, etc. I am told that because this type of rifle is banned by series (I know, I know. I tried to explain the laws, but he wasn't having it) that I will be allowed to shoot this one last time... then NO MORE. I was tempted to stand there and debate with the guy(and did for about 2 minutes), but I could see it in his eyes. It wasn't sinking in.
Some people, just don't get it. They cannot read and understand the laws for themselves. They rely on what the DOJ feeds them. I know that most will say, "just go somewhere else" and I will. Looks like it's Manteca Sportsman from now on. I just hate it that people can be so unreasonable, when presented with (current) laws and facts. I will, however, print up some literature and bring it down to The Gun Room. It may not do any good, but I have to at least try.

I know that I probably won't change their minds, but I refuse to just roll over on this issue.

I agree. They are an odd group there. I showed up with a pistol-caliber black rifle, and they flipped out on me. At a different time, I showed up wearing my California DOJ hat (I interned there in college), and I couldn't believe how backwards they bent over for me. Tried to push me to the top of the waiting list, implied that there wouldn't be a range rental fee, chatted me up all sweetly, etc.

Nice store and range, but the staff are strange ducks. I really don't get the feeling that they are pro-shooter...which is damn odd.

Go to Sac Valley, they are very cool. Every time I go I see lots of people shooting AR builds and AK's etc., it's kind of far but it's a very nice range and no one hassles you.

The gun room is sort of like the sheeple of kalifornia. They only will believe what others like Doj tells them even though what they've been told was just a lie. The owner/people that work there is just the type that'll just "Give In" on the fight or chicken out of their 2A rights when challenged by an upper authority. That said they don't have my business anymore and all my friends/relatives.

Yup...Still charging it even though it's a clear violation of the law.

Yeah, they suck. My father and I used to go every weekend and drop at least $100 at this place. Not anymore, I've persuaded at least 50 regulars of that place to stop supporting them. I am probably an A** for it, but hey, there going to have to learn.

Just vote with your dollar.


These guys have a policy in effect. They don't want black rifles there. If they won't take your dollar, that is their problem. You can't be mad at an employee enforces his boss's wishes. If he didn't tell you no, he wouldn't have a job.

I'm with you guys. It's been a few years since I've been in that place and I will never step in there again. I had a really bad experience purchasing a handgun from them. I just end up taking a nice drive up to Colfax. All though it can get a bit busy on the weekends.
