I have never in my life seen an establishment that will not give you your money back when they sell you junk. But I have finally found one... Their new slogan should be "come to the hunter's paradise where the raping comes with no vaseline and you're stuck with our overpriced shit no matter what!!!" They have really disappointed me with their service and then offered less than half of what I paid for a 9 day old gun that was junk when I bought it. Sad sad little store... maybe when cabellas comes in to Bristol it will shut this sorry little scam down.

I don't know, but the Better Business Bureau has always helped me when I was dissatisfied. You can call and write. The number is in the phone book I think.

They may have not used a deputy's cell phone but I can deal with that better than I can deal with the rude behavior from Billy and his obnoxious son. Billy is arrogant and overbearing but his son that still works there is why I don't do business with them anymore. He has the retail sales ability of a pit viper. He acts like he is doing you a favor for allowing you to come shop there. That place has went down hill consistently since Harold Crouse sold it to the current mis-management.

Well the best thing is to shop outta town. Plenty of places down toward Abingdon or up Marion would be glad to have your business and they won't use a deputy's cell phone either.

Andy, almost all gun manufacturers have a life time or extended warrant send it back, that's a manufactures problem.

go to the court house and get a warrent. The clerk wil help u and show you how. They will have to pay your court cost too. I know someone who just went through this with Sleep Cheap in Bristol. She got her money back. Better Business wont do anything but send them a letter. A judge will order them to give you money back. They will have to.

A friend and I were in both Hunters Paradise and Lewis and Clark about a month ago, and was not even spoke to by employees at either place. Keep in mind here neither place was busy at the time we were there, my friend asked about a rifle at Hunters, he was shown the rifle but the guy acted like it was a burden to go through the process. We ended up leaving and went to Mahoney's in Abingdon, within a minute of being there we were offered help by 2 people, and they were pretty busy.
This was my first time in all 3 of theses places and you can go figure where I have now made 3 purchases and referred 2 more friends to that have purchased from them. Mahoney's people I have dealt with so far have all been very nice, and very knowledgeable about there product.
