So a few weeks ago Mid Feb, I meet up with a vet who was in Basra Iraq the same time I was.

He drove from BFE passed ventura and would never be a Turners customer.

We met at the Norwalk Turners.

I was selling him a
Smith an Wesson Lower Receiver
Lower Parts Kit
Stock Assembly for 375. Great price.

We did not know each other but we had a common history and I was hooking him up.
He was involved in a major incident in 2009 that I witnessed and I was so overwhelmed when talking to him online that I was compelled to do him a solid.

At the Norwalk Turners, after we get there there the fat old guy gray beard/hai - manager in black shirt, tells us to wait on our PPT.

This is the same guy who took our receivers looked at them, he knew what we had.

1 Hours goes by, 4 people with numbers after ours go ahead of us by the managers hands, each time telling us to wait.

Finally a new sales girls says who's next I say us ''look at our number'' she takes our ID's and puts them on the lower receivers the fat manager placed behind the counter,
The fat man sees this and then he approaches us and says '' I have this for 150 right now if you want it''
WTF we waited for that?
He only approached us when he saw our ID's placed on our box behind the counter.

Well my buyer did not want to buy it from turners but this a hole would not relent.
I got fed up and walked away from the deal, the buyer I was asking me not too.
It was embarrassing other customers did not know I was hooking him up I looked like some A Hole price gouging so I just left.

Long story short this fat man lost me as a long time customer who had already purchased 8 guns from turners in 2013 alone by Mid February, he lost me for a 1 time sale to a buyer that would never return for anything but the one time to pick up the lower.

I am an avid gun enthusiast I buy guns, shoot them don't like them sale them buy others and so on or buy them, like them, keep them and buy more.

Probably spent 20k at turners in 2012.

I and 68 guys from my shoot group & club have agreed to never shop at Turners again and we have not.

Norwalk Turners Fat old grey haired/bearded manager in black polo you are d-bag of the year in my book.

Sorry to hear you had such a bad experience at the Norwalk store. I have shopped their for many years and from your description, the guy was most likely Ritch the Manager. Shocked he would behave in that manner as he has all ways been a standup guy in the past.

As for PPT's, I prefer to use Ammo Bros in Cerritos, just a quick 5min down the 605 and never a hassle. When your number is called it's your turn. Heck they even give out the paperwork if you ask, so you can fill it out while you wait.

Ppt's at turners takes so long because they have to enter each firearm into their inventory system. This coupled with the fact that that some do not know how to do it and some that do know don't want to do it because it takes too long equals waiting at turners for ppt't.

Maybe so, but if its the MANAGER....then there's NO EXCUSE for it!
That's a DB move...

So he made you wait and then tried to sell the guy a lower directly instead of completing the ppt?

That's definitely bad customer service and I'm not surprised you're upset. What I don't understand is why after the buyer drove from "BFE passed Ventura" you walked away and did not complete the PPT. All the talk about hooking someone up... and then letting your pride come in front of it?

Did you go elsewhere to complete the PPT? Maybe I misunderstood what you wrote.

I see you're banned. Maybe we'll never know.

Was he banned for complaining about Turner's?

His last few posts were complaining about this incident and there doesn't seem to be anything else he did to justify a ban.

Well if he got banned for saying how he felt about turners, that's rediculous. I think most would agree that turners has its Ok times, but mostly *****ty times.

Probably got a temp ban for cross posting his rant in multiple forums.

If greifing and gripeing about turners was a bannable offense, the site would be fairly empty.

Na, I think they would merge or delete the duplicate but not ban over that.

some guy sent me a rude PM and I made fun of him in my response and was banned for calling him a ''whinny little girl'', it hurt his felling and he reported it.
Go figure, did not see that coming.
I have been banned before for arguing with friends of mods no big deal I have a life beyond this. Usually only use CGN when I am on RnR or between contracts.

I did not even realized I was banned until I tried to go to craigslist, typed the c in my browser, and accidentally hit calguns...

And yet people still go there? So it's either people are exaggerating things or people are such masochists.

Turners had been great up to this like WAY Better than most others, NO RAISED PRICES, I had buddies that would text me when cool stuff was back in stock, fun to talk to, the only DBAGS are the managers.... EH SCREW EM they make like minimum wage and only get 1 dollar for any gun sale and it can only be used towards a future sale at the end of the year, losers. Any past or current employees dispute this you are a liar or its changed but this here is a fact.

Lambert Pawn in Whittier CA, of Lambert AVE...

10 MINUTES IN/OUT PPT. NO BS THEY ARE SUPER FAST.

Some New Guns LOTS of used.

No douchebags what so ever.

My recent PPT at the Oxnard Turner's took about 25 minutes, on a Saturday. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, the store was clean and well stocked and the experiance was great. What I suggest "systems" to do is walk into Turner's and call one of the managers a minimum wage-loser-douchebag to his face and see how that goes.
I got crappy service from BWW the other day, I just didn't bother to ***** about it on Cal Chicken
