i've been an off and on customer with fowler's for a number of years now...some sales people, have been up front, and respectful of the customers, others, not so much. it is the nature of the sales business. yes, they should be better at their jobs. but it is what it is, to use that old worn out saying. other gun shops have the same problem with their sales staff as well. if fowler's isn't your cup of tea, and doesn't suit you, then go to another shop and, give 'em your business. as for the prices at fowler's, yes, i'll grant you they are a little high...welcome to overhead, and the cost of doing business in the people's democratic republic of california, where we still have freedom of choice, and can still shop without government mandates...for now.
