I enjoyed going there myself. Nothing like having a gun shop in your own backyard. I will buy from them just for that!

I was there with a friend of mine and he will back me up to say they never asked for my FOID. I was there the second day they were open and the owner(Henry) could have at least wore a shirt without coffee stains on it to meet new customers. I am used to dealing with pros no matter waht that fuckstick Bystander says, Mega has had my business for years. Clayton is an insecure ass and has no business being around firearms.
. I mentioned this to the owner ,he took out his computer and looked on his camera system in front of 3 people and he spent 45 minuets watching the first week .fast forwarding until a costumer wanted to see a gun and the 3 people all saw every person that asked to see a firearm was carded . Some twice by diferent employees .owner has had a ffl license for years , not his first rodeo . He had ar-15 rifles when no one could get them and name brand rifles lots of them even mega was sold out not these guys .they are nice there .i hope to do some more business with them .you should stop trying to slander there name .

This would never happen in Crook County. They would rather the criminals shoot and kill good people instead the other way around!

God Bless The Bill Of Rights!

If it was not for the NRA, we would have lost our rights to bear arms IMO.

Great to have a gun shop back in the area! Nice little shop but not much in the way of inventory and pretty ridiculous prices. Hopefully as time goes they fix that. The guys are ok to deal with except they aren't allowed to make any deals. Only the owner is and he is horrible to deal with. A very dishonest "business-man" who is taking advantage of the gun hysteria. Again hopefully this will change as he gets used to running a business. The best thing they have to offer here is reasonable transfers. Find the gun elsewhere for a decent price and have it sent to this shop. Cautious optimism towards the range they are talking about opening!

Been there several times, almost bought a Beretta 92FS. Not what I was looking for at the time. I wish they had more of a selection of pistols and something more than a wall full of tactical weapons. Some home defense shotguns would be nice. And some ammo. Nice guys, too.

Mega-plex is expensive but it has the inventory. That is their saving grace right now. When the panic subsides they're going to have to lower their prices to stay competitive.

Get over yourself. The individual obviously was introducing himself and his qualifications to you. As for his "truck" - there obviously must have been something in your conversation that led it there.
You sound like a petulant whiner. Maybe you shouldn't even go into a gun store.
As for Megas being "pros" - I've had some pretty bad experiences there with them, and I can assure you, they're not "pros."
I for one cannot wait to go to the store! I'm so excited to have another store in town!
One note: I wish they would put their store hours on the web site.
My husband and I just left this new gun place. The last thing on my mind was their professionalism. They know their stuff, and the prices were right in the ballpark. I got an H&K USP40. I am so excited about a range opening up right here close to home. I joined ISRA last year, and it is a drive. And, btw, compared to Rinks, these guys are high society. Trust me. Luckily my husband saw the ad in one of those booklets that come in the mail. We could not believe it when we saw the address. Wide variety of guns, and were very helpful in helping me make the right choice. I also have him searching for a S&W .357 revolver for me. I named the price I had in mind, and he said he would look.

Just left the new Frontline Defense. Like a breath of fresh air. Purchased an H&K USP40. Great price. Have a S&W .357 ordered. He is looking for one that has an 8 round capacity. I gave him the price I was willing to pay. He will call me when and if he finds one. I am just so excited to have them nearby, and also cannot wait until the range opens. It is about time. I thought they were very professional, and they know their stuff. He explained a lot to me about the gun I purchased. I wish them the very best of luck in this endeavor.

Clayton is one of the nicest guys around. Kind of a gentle giant. However, if he was his correct weight he would be about 220. I hope he gets his weight under control for his family's sake. You're right, he brags about his truck. So what? Everybody needs a little braggadocio now and then. What's wrong with being proud of yourself? He knows his stuff, just like the rest of the staff. Their prices will definitely have to come into line in the future. They are taking advantage of the recent spike. Remind you of any other business in the area? Like maybe all of them? Really glad to have them aboard. I have made two purchases there already. Their professionalism is A-1. If you don't know what a Golden eagle is, you aren't a member of the NRA. It is the highest member. One step higher than a life member. I support the NRA with my dollars. You should too. Thanks Clayton.

Been to Frontline one time. Closed, so I came back later. This time open and they buzzed me right in. Never asked for an FOID but I never asked to see a firearm. I would not expect to be asked until I wanted to handle a firearm.
No hour posted on their door or their website. Went back again today ( Monday) at 10:40A. Closed. Called them at 12:30p and someone answered and just said "hello." I started asking about their hours and he said their phones were messed up and he could not hear a word that I was saying. I said I would call back later and he said ok. He seemed to hear that pretty well.
They were friendly enough and answered my questions. I wish them success, but it will be hard to compete against Mega simply based on the selection of firearms and accessories available at Mega, even with their high prices. I also wish Frontline a bit more professionalism.

Good to hear.

Any news at all on their opening a range? I think that plan fizzled on them?

Here it is, listen and weep



so you dopes want to sell America to these scumbags. You don't deserve to be called Americans, the tea Party is traitors masquerading as Patriots. Fortunately the majority of Americans see through the deception. When fascism comes to America it will be draped in a flag and carrying a cross.
