Maybe I dont know what I want. Like the 870 I got last week. I didnt want it till I tried it on. I'm think I'm gonna go ask a bunch of questions then compare shop.

Just cause I don't like shopkeeps that think you HAVE to buy something because you walk in. Right gman.

If you are more akin to shopping at Walmart then Frank's is not the place for you. I suppose he may give his inventory over the phone but it would be best to have some idea of what you want. The last time I was there he had a good sized selection. If you are not looking for something specific then you should at least give him an idea of what you are looking for. If you just go and tire kick he will not kick you out but you should keep in mind that it is just him. He is not an hourly employee like the guys are Gander. If you know what you want right away you may get a better price for it. I will say that he is a very nice man. He answered all of my questions and helped my friend and I make the right decisions. We were 21 year old men who thought we knew everything a about guns. He took the time to wade through out eagerness and fitted us with what we needed. That was 13 years ago and I would definitely go back again. As far as him having a website he doesn't need to nor should he. If you sold guns out of your home would you post your inventory on the web for all the world to see? I would suggest you shop around and then call Frank and see if he can do a better price on what you have decided on. He can get anything for you from a manufacturer. Any firearm dealer can. It is a very widespread network.
