I don't understand why they call it Downey's Gun & Pawn. It should be called Downey's Gun & More Gun. Or Downey's Gun & No Pawn or Downey's Gun & Bullet's for Gun. Or just call it what it is, Downey's Gun and Old Folks Hangout. Truth is I have nothing bad to say about the Downey's or Danny Downey that is any way, But the thing I have a problem with is the mistake of them calling it a pawn shop when they don't take anything on pawn but guns and the problem with the store is that the fat short black hair dude that works in there all the time will look at you like you are a criminal or that you are scum if you ask them to pawn something. I just don't see why Danny don't send him packing? He has done nothing but keep that place in the red. It blows my mind, Think about it for a second, Columbia Pawn should have never been able to make it back 10 years ago, Downey's had an established pawn shop with all of the years of experience and every customer that they had and should have been able to put any competition out within 3 months, Columbia Pawn had no experience and no customers and no one would have thought they were going to make it more then 6 months. Well they proved everybody, Even me wrong and took about 90% of all the pawn and gun business, That place has grown and grown till they don't even have room for all there inventory. They sell atv's and cars and guns, coin's, tv's, jewelry, air conditioner's, tool's, comic book's, even purses and about anything you can think of. To me a pawn shop should be a place that takes stuff of value for pawn right? Danny has a great personality and I think he is a good hearted person but I think he needs to stop the hemorrhaging buy ether firing the guy that works there and get someone that knows what they are doing and that will treat everyone with respect or shut the place down because there is no way he can turn it around with him there. The thing is that its very clear that the guy don't care what he sales or what he takes in on pawn because he is going to get the same pay ether way. Im not trying to be mean by saying this but I am just being honest, Sometimes its hard to be nice and be a boss and do whats right but if he wants to succeed again he is going to have to do a 360 and get new help and educate them on customer satisfaction and teach them how to do the job. Downey's has 100's of guns and I know most of them have been there for 10 years collecting dust. Columbia pawn has no were near as many guns but that's because they sell them daily. What do you all think?

You get top dollars on pawn at Adair Gun and Pawn. They work with you not against you. I pawn there all the time and they have several guns and paid me more for gold too. I used to pawn at downeys and Columbia pawn but not any more after Adair Pawn opened.

The only employee at Downey's that is there all the time is a long time employee that has built up the business to be a prosperous business. It would not be as good of a business, if it were not for this long time employee, he is honest and wants to do things the right way. Without him Danny would not have a good business as everyone in Columbia speaks highly of this employee and how easy he is to deal with. You can see for your self , if he is not working, business is slow. So some how you have a distorted opinion, or maybe did not get your way, more than likely because the rules needed to be followed and the employee was doing their job. Seems sometimes if we don't get our way we like to run down other people, which is only hurting yourself.

You can ask anyone in Columbia and they will tell you how much they like to deal with him, rather than any one else. You can see for yourself when he is out or off for a day, business is slow. Apparently you have a distorted view or maybe did not get your way because the employee wanted to follow the rules and do things right. Seems some times when we don't get our way we try to blame someone else, when all that does is hurt yourself.
