Baguhan lang ako when I had a bad experience with a popular gun store.
Kasama ko yung late uncle ko nun, and he felt worse about it than I did.
Hindi bale na ang details, basta pangit, and my uncle made sure the store
heard about it. I gave the store a second chance, and haven't regretted
it. Dun ko kinuha yung Bersa ko. The way I see it, anyone can have a bad
day (within reason), even gunstore employees.
Also some time back, pero sa gunshow naman:
Another gun store, one of the biggest, basically took my money and lied
to me. After several weeks of claiming "processing delays", they admitted
that they hadn't even filed my application. Binawi ko yung order, but they
still charged me a few hundred pesos as "filing fee" (kahit na they hadn't
filed anything) Funny guys. When I'd first ordered, at the Gunshow, they
even had me choose from a list of serial numbers, which stock was then
exported daw pala to the US, despite my payment. I later gave the store
a second chance, but the experience was just as ...unusual. Much later,
nakausap ko pa ang isa sa mga owners (albeit the one involved with their
Nevada-based operations) who promised he'd look into how their company
could have charged me fees for services never rendered, and I trust things
I guess what I'm trying to say is that
1. Gun stores can have an 'off' day (within reason) and giving them a
second chance can be a decision you'll be glad you made.
2. If you get bad service, it's important to let the store know about it,
and properly, otherwise they can't improve.
Yun lang po... and I still visit Gun Shows whenever it's convenient.
Sometimes I wind up buying stuff. At minimum, I get to keep track of
what's new, what's no longer available, and how prices have changed.
