Smokin' Barrel in Simi Valley...
Hello fellow Calgunners, has anyone been to the new gun store in Simi Valley? If so did you have a positive experience or negative? I was recently at their shop earlier today, I had called before hand to ask if they would match someone else's price. While the employee I spoke with was extremely friendly and helpful, the owner was not. I asked about a particular Sig handgun, and they were unable to match the price of another local store. I simply said "thanks for trying, but I'm not going to be buying that handgun here (Smokin' Barrel). The owner then proceeded to tease and be-little the other gun store, stating "Oh, yeah well I could sell ya a Kimber for $500! It's easy to sell a gun that you dont have on hand!" I simply shook my head and left, and said "thanks for your time" . I don't know how someone can expect to remain in business while being so unprofessional regarding potential customers, trash talking competitors, and doing all of this in front of his employees. I'm not saying don't shop there, but I wont be buying anything from that store, even if I have to order it and have it shipped. Just my $0.02
When in doubt, Wookiee out!
