Bad tempered Rfd's

You'd have think I'd have asked to see a video of his mum and sister wrestling naked in a vat of jelly.

If it's the bloke I think it is...up North...they do. And in their day job throttle hoggets to death, two at a time, one in each hand, in the local abbatoir when the stun machine is down for service.

and the responses I've had off several are positively rude. 

Start of last year I was in an RFD not far from where you and I both live. My friend was after a 525 as his first gun along with slip, glasses, vest, cap etc. We were chatting to the bloke behind the counter trying to get my buddy a nice deal, not rob the RFD, but perhaps get him to throw something into the package. Two blokes walked in and went to look at the perazzi stand, the dealer literally walked off in mid conversation and left us stood at the counter like a couple of fools. Goodbye, money spent elsewhere!

On a separate note I have been dealing with Shooting Sports UK on the A5 of late, just down the road from Weston park. Couple of young chaps run the place, can’t do enough for the customer, excellent service if you happen to drive past👍

my gunsmith is like that........he closes at 3 on a friday.....then opens up again at 6 to 9 in the evening so folk can stock up on shells and pick their guns up before saturday have a coffee and talk utter squit for 3 hours and come out of the shop with stuff you never even thought of buying...

the workroom where the smithing is done is part of the shop which makes it very interesting

Hello, sounds a good gunsmith and shop, nothing like that around here

its run by leon and his brother and his brothers son who does the computor stuff and parts and ammo..........

as ive said before it is the only place /shop i have ever been to where you can have a conversation or 3 different conversations with 3 people all at the same time............and when you come out of the shop holding stuff that you dont want and you feel that your brain has rotted....it is a very surreal experience

Yes I think it must be a trait with Rfds. When asked about my local shop I find it hard to explain about the service , it’s not that their Bad, they just don’t seem bothered about selling you anything. They could do with a course on up selling. If they were a car dealership they wouldn’t last a month.

I don’t mind grumpy, or even rude to an extent RFDs, I more dislike RFDs or the guys on the shop floor at least talking absolute rubbish (about firearms law, performance of cartridges etc). I prefer to shop in silence, if I have a query I will ask. It all feels North American, sales assistants greeting you as soon as you as much as look at a place.
