Unprofessional !

Counter employees should look neat and clean. No T shirts. They should be made to wear ironed jeans or casual slacks. They should come wearing clean shoes, should be shaved and no ball caps.

Be attentive to potential customers.

Employees passing around a gigantic bag of peanut M & M's seems to be more important than waiting on a customer.

Cleaning supplies are low cost maintenance items.

Brooms, feather dusters, swiffer dusters, windex and paper towels are totally absent from this establishment. Merchandise was/is so dusty I had to blow and rub off the dust just to see the price.

Throw out the bull shitting loafers.

No one wants to listen to these people. They are a disruptive annoyance to potential paying customers.

Owner/employee children have no business in the store, and especially behind the firearm display counter.

Counter employees who have ZERO knowledge of firearms should not be behind the counter trying to sell firearms.

There is nothing worse than some uneducated person trying to sell a firearm by blowing smoke up someones ass, or simply making up firearm knowledge. If you do not know the answer to a question - say so - and find someone who does.

Look at Dunns in Marion, parking lot is always full & the reason you may have to wait to look at a gun or buy ammo is they are busy with customers. The store is always clean, well stocked and have been owned by the same owner for many years in the community...

I WILL NEVER SHOP AT STRICTLY.

A) They act like a bunch of duck dynasty wanna be's, instead of what they are; SALES PEOPLE

B) The people in there just "hangin out" should find better things to do other than give ME advise on what to buy. That's the sales person's job.

C) Lazy, Lazy, Lazy. If they don't wanna be there, then they don't need to be there.

The place is a good example of how to get a business into the toilet.

Strictly is a shit hole. They have nothing in stock for most common guns, they have junk parts laying around on the shelves. They are way over priced and have been price gouging ever since the gun sales started skyrocketing and they even said they were when I called them on it, looked at a handgun and asked the price and when he told me, it was higher than the MSRP on the gun makers website, I asked him if that price was firm and he said yeah the way things are going with guns today. The loafers behind the counter are a joke too get a real job and quit hanging out, we'll some of them are on the taxpayer teat while they are loafing like Shannon Duel. When you call one of your salesman "cooter" you can tell the place is a class act, do I need to go on?, I think not save yourself some time and go to Dunn's in Marion the 20 minute drive is well worth the service, from someone with a real name not "cooter", or "billy joe Jim bob".

Jeff at Pro gun in Marion is a great guy, he will order anything for you and is networked with a bunch of gun guys. He can find you what you want if you give him time. I have bought several guns off jeff & he don't try to screw you on the price, I think it's kinda a hobby for him. He is located behind Home Depot about a mile down the road..

I or my husband have never went to Dunn's that we were helped in anyway. We stand there & they walk past us. Never seen a gun or had a question answered there. However, we've both bought guns @ Strictly's & they are very friendly & helpful every time we go in there. Always received great prices on the guns we've bought. No problems even if I go in by myself. They still treat me with respect & are very helpful to me & don't treat me like I don't know what I'm talking about like some other gun shops have done when I've went in alone. It's nice as a woman to be treated the same as if I were a man when I go in there to buy a gun.

I highly doubt that any of what you say is true. Chances are your husband is one of the fat f*ck loafers, who smell like Bosco's belly button btw, that stands behind the counter and offers 'expert' advice on what to buy. I'd bet it took you at least an hour to come up with that response. Btw get the sh*t off your nose.

Honey, my husband has a very real job that he goes to everyday. These guys get on here & put down people @ a business. It's very simple; don't shop there!!! They're not begging for business. They appear to be doing fine. Why is it that when someone disagrees with you the name calling starts & you get your panties in a bunch. Some people like doing business with Strictly & some don't. I don't know what your problem is but someone needs to teach you how to speak to another person.

They have no guns anymore and the first poster hit it on the head. They ignore you, can't tell a salesperson because they all dress like they've never seen a washer or dryer. Come on...strictly used to be a decent place but not now. All the real gun salesmen are gone...they wouldn't even take a nice gun trade in on a bow. NO AMMO!!!

So you must be the brother to the other "person" who likes to call names due to your lack of knowledge about everything. I don't understand how grown men can not come up with anything but calling names to someone who just didn't agree with a topic. Also, your posts makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. One of you can't come up with enough bad things to say on your own so it takes two to attempt to insult me. Which, by the way I am not. How can I be insulted by two people who doesn't have an intelligent thought between the two of you. Sorry if you had a bad experience on your little shopping trips; however I am able to carry in conversations with the employees. If you go in there & approach them with your attitudes then I don't blame them if they don't help you. They do have the right to refuse your business. If you have a problem with them then go into the store & tell them about it instead of insulting me because I am able to buy a gun or ammo whenever I want without any problems. So dears, maybe it's you not me & not them. Oh & if you decide to go in there & pitch a fit, please post it on here so I can go watch them kick you out of the store. Oh, & honey I am not now nor have I ever been from Harrisburg & only someone who is ashamed of their own lack of intelligence would attempt to talk down someone else's intelligence.

Still no change...no guns, no salesmen that know anything. You have to have just a little bit of personality to be a salesman and these guys don't. I own a small business and everyone through the doors I always tell them hello and please ask if they have any questions or need anything...strictly doesn't do that anymore..sad

I usually pull up on my " Hog" that's Harley for all you dumb folk. I then rev up the engine to impress everyone within hearing distance, that usually impresses the salesman into giving me a discount.
