Benji is a good guy and I believe he will do a good job as owner considering he has been managing it. A bit of advice though. Keep an eye on the teenagers working there. I went in there one day and had to interrupt an employee while he was BSing with a friend to get assistance.

Let's just put it this way. He has done some BSing with the younger female employees if you catch my drift. I know people will say he's such a good guy and would never do that, but I know for a fact he has.

Benji will do great, and he has many friends and a passionate heart for people and family and I am sure he is a better person than some that will attact him on this page. Be careful to cast stones when you live in a glass house.

It seems that Benji would be the best guy to take over ownership. Congratulations to him. I don't want to put my name on this forum because we all know the lies that people can come up with about total strangers. He will probably know who I am though. I only knew Benji a short amount of time, and although we actually had a bit of a disagreement and I havent seen him in a while I still think he's a good guy and wish him the best of luck with the new ownership of Dunn's.

I went to school w Benji from elementary to High school, I know him personally and professionally. Dunn's couldn't have been put in better hands. I just bought a gun from Dunn's this past Monday and the service in the gun dept was phenomenal! When Benji wasn't busy, he would walk over and check on me to make sure I was being helped and what not. And for whoever said "surprisingly about still being married", then u don't know him at all, he is happily married and has two beautiful kids! He comes from a great family and still has lots of ties to the community. Even in his younger years, he treated women w up most respect so I don't really appreciate that comment, this entire topic is about him now owning Dunn's not about his personal life! Congrats Benji, we are all so proud of you!!

You go dig up a thread that died 5 months ago to say that? I'm sure he really appreciates you bringing this all back up again. Idiot! Oh and you apparently don't know him as well as you think you do, but whatever.

Benji as far as customer relations, now “owner,” has been great to deal with for years. All I know is I have been treated very well and professional anytime I have dealt with Benji. He sold me a gun safe and delivered it and went out of his way to please this customer. You do not find many employees so willing to go the extra mile to please. I am very happy this man was able to become an owner of Dunn’s. Now as of 2013 we have a new partner with Benji, Gary Lambert. You could not ask for a nicer guy. Knowledgeable in firearms, fair, honest and a truly fine person! The paring of Benji and Gary will bring Dunn’s to a level of the finest sporting goods/gun store in the area! It will sure be welcoming to have a gun shop where people actually CARE about the customer and not “just” the money and are willing to go above and beyond to satisfy the customer. What a GREAT combination, fantastic, caring owners knowledgeable in their field’s and great guys to boot! I foresee a great new transformation for Dunn’s of Paducah. I suggest everyone support these two guys.
