Hey, no apologies needed. In some instances reputations are well-deserved, whether buying a car or a gun! You are right about coming prepared. That makes my job easier. If my clients don't do their homework, they won't know a good deal if it falls in their lap!
And, you're right on LGSs. Sometimes WallyWorld is the best deal, but not likely the best advice - or selection....
I appreciate your help and comments.
Lots of Cast Iron to Cook With...
and a few defensive firearms, too!
