Today I went there and found the fat jerkoff behind the counter to be snippy, and a total tool. I went there with the intention of purchasing a revolver, and after asking fatso a question, he snapped at me, so I walked out.

I went to Benson once my entire life after living on this island for 20 years over the summer i have to admit this gun shop is the best the absolute best they helped me answered all my stupid little questions and are sooooooooo reasonable they were very informative I will definitely shop there again and again and again and recommend anyone about them.......have you tried the other gun shops on long island like the one off sunrise i think in sayville they had bad customer service to me i think and benson is clean compared to that spot and its a gun shop how clean do u expect it to be

I dont spend my money in places that have rude employees. Very simple. I've been to both places. Left and made the purchase elsewhere. Plus I saved quite a bit of cash! They just dont get it...

if you go to bensons gun shop ask for RON. have been there a few times. Ron is the most helpful and courteous person.he will make as many phone calls as needed to find what you want if its not available there.

this is funny,at a time when most business' in coram close down, bensons moved to a site at least 2 or 3 times the size of the old one.these guys also used to sell guns out the back door for big bucks.

sounds like you did not like prices..if you have to ask how much you can't affored it.

Went to Bensons to look - I asked if they would work with me on price if I bought a few rifles - they said yes. They really didn't but they did have good prices so I spent about 2 grand, but they did try to nickel and dime me a bit, but what else is new? Everybody does - get over it.Yu're buying guns not lipstick. Ended up saving about $200 after I compared prices with other shops.
The staff was helpful too.

Despite reading many negative comments about Bensons, I decided to give them a try as they are nearby. The first of two trips was not bad, really was just shopping around. The young man behind the counter was knowledgeable and showed me their stock.
Upon returning the next day, having made up my mind on which gun to buy....the same salesperson was not there. I ended up getting someone else (short skinny tool with glasses), which should have been no big deal. I told him what i wanted down to the model number, and for reasons known only to him...he treated me with such disrespect I politely thanked him for his time, walked out, and spent my hard earned money elsewhere.

Benson's is the absolute Worst, I don't know how they stay in business. They are rude and nasty and have a horible attitude. I will never go back there again. I'm looking to purchase a pistol since I got my pistol permit but I will never go to this place to buy anything. I went to buy ammo from them and they treated me like they weren't interested in my business. I would suggest that you go somewhere else.

Benson's is the worst gun shop on long island. I would never go there to purchase anything again. I went to purchase ammo from them and they were nasty and had an attitude problem. They are close to my home and I would rather drive an hour to another gun shop than ever visit them again. They are truly a horrible business.

Bensons gun shop is with out a doubt the best shop in suffolk county. There prices are as good as any other shop's around, great inventory and if they dont have it they will get it.

Their range is rather dark and dirty...I personally wouldn't use it. There is a nicer range in Islip.As for their prices, well, they pretty much have a monopoly for this area and they do have an extensive selection of guns.

THE MAN WAS A JERK !
