As a regular customer for many years at B&J Guns I find it hard to take seriously the nasty and negative ratings given it by a handful of disgruntled customers , could they be envious competitors? Hmm...
I have always found the staff very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Perhaps, these few unhappy campers didn't appreciate Brian's sense of humor. To someone who doesn't know him, or appreciate his humor (which I find hillarious) they might get the mistaken impression that he's a troll. He isn't. He's a great guy. He's like a big friendly dog stuffed with marshmellows. He and his staff really care about their customers. This is clear as day.
They are not there just to make the sale, but to make you a satisfied, long term, repeat customer.
The guys that work here are a bunch of clowns that won't give you the time of day if they don't know you. I was all ready to give them my business, but I guess they are too good for it. The first major competitor to come through the Albany area will wipe the floor with them.
I WILL NEVER STEP FOOT IN THIS PLACE AGAIN!! These guys act like theyre doing you a favor. They can pick and choose what they sell to who. But it wont be me
Sorry to hear the bad comments,but I've been there several times in the past few months and the Guys have been great with any questions and the prices were great. Brian talked me out of spending to much on a pistol, because he'd find me one cheaper! Thanks Guys
Visited B&J 4x over the last 6 months. At time the store is SRO, and if you wait your turn the staff will always help you. They have joked with me and answered any all questions and gone out of their way to be helpful.
As far as pricing is concerned when purchasing a weapon you get what you pay for. I see from posts they complain of pricing, just make sure your comapring quality.
Will be returning to the store on Central ( can be crwded with LEO, but always treated nicely by them) to purchase another long gun they help pick out.
My wife and I went in to buy our first shotgun and were treated like dirt. We couldn't wait to get out. The salesperson was openly snearing at us and clearly thoughgt we were a waste of his time. Stay away!!
First handgun – Seems there are some very negative reviews of B&J. My wife an i just got our pistol permits, spent a lot of time at B&J. The staff was very helpful. Prices.. .about 20% below manufacturers list. We had a positive experience and we're going back.....
Don't know what their thinking – I have been looking for a AR-15. So I stopped in at B & J's to get a price S & W M & P 15 Sport. They told me $799.00. So I decided to look around. I bought the same gun at Target Sports for $689.00. Where the hell is B & J coming from with their price. They must not want any business.
How are these guys open ? – Unless your carry a badge or are a frequent spender at the store you are treated like dirt. It really seems like the guys behind the counter have a competition to see who can belittle the customers more. Not to mention every item is 10-15% more than msrp at a minimum.
