B&S has lost my business.
I've shopped there off-and-on. They're knowledgable and freindly enough. Their prices on ammunition are very high, but I appreciate dealing with professionals.
However, earlier this yearI took in an older semi-automatic shotgun that was having a problem cycling the next shell. I thoroghly described the problem to them, and they said the could fix it.
They called and said that the shotgun was fixed, and I picked up the gun and happily paid them their fee.
A month or so later, I get a chance to shoot the gun, and it exhibits the exact same problem from the very first shell.
Out of frustration, I broke the gun down completely. It was as if they hadn't even cleaned it, let alone check for a problem. It turns out that it was a cloged gas port. I don't mean dirty. I mean completely clogged. Now, this is certainly something that I could have done myself, but it's an older gun, and I want a gunsmith to look at it. Clearly, their gunsmith did not.
In response to 500mag_nut, I am neither a moron nor clueless. I am just a regular guy that expects someone to do what they say they will do.
In my case, B&S did NOT do what they said they would do. They took payment for services that they did not render. That is dishonest.
And, I don't do business with dishonest people.
