worst gun shop on longisland would never go there again was offered $200 for a preban colt very insulting wouldnt recommend the place to anyone
I've shopped at Benson's for about three years now. I've purchased three rifles from them and have always been treated professionally and respectfully. You may have to wait a couple of minutes to be helped but what would one expect. They've shown and explained any thing I needed. I think the negative pieces are isolated incidents and I do think that some of the customers may be full of themselves. Most gun shop workers in some places like to act like tough guys but not at Benson's. My friends and I recommend them. Happy shooting....
My fiancee purchased her first shotgun from Benson's..The staff were excellent,polite,experienced..They even have a gunsmith on hand..Yes the prices are a little high..She too had a problem with the gun..She took it home,as she was taking it apart a piece of steel actually broke clean from the I believe the trigger housing..Anyways we were disappointed but they immediately took it back,the smith fixed it and was in her hands the next day...Great store overall
Nice Store...Very Nice Staff – I recently purchased a handgun from Joe over at Bensons and was very happy with the service. All these negative reviews are a mystery to me. Everyone behind the counter (4 different people when I was There) was courteous and friendly. Prices are on the high side; but all local businesses are trying to make a living in this economy. Plus I like to support local shops and by the time you buy off the net and pay transfer fees, S & H and NY Sales Tax they are right in line with everyone else. My advice is to give Bensons a try and see for yourself...Huge selection of new and used guns, tons of ammo and just about anything ele you could want. These negative reviews are way off base ...% Sars For Bensons....Big Jeff
They go out of their way to give you personal service – I have now moved three guns to my son, Navy Pilot to Pensacola and they were great about it.
They have a great staff and I have been going there for years. They can get busy, thus, you have to be patient. However, they will get what ever you need, and have great knowledge.
Bad customer service – Went to check out some pistols looking at the display, firstly most, not all, guns were highly overpriced. the people who worked there seem to know what they were doing. and that was not helping the customer. (me) i walk in and not even a friendly "hi" i ask for some help and was totally ignored by the manager. so after a look around the store i left. that day there were only around 4 people in the store 5 including me and only 2 people were being assisted all the other employees pretended i wasnt even standing there. i dont know what that was about but i dont think ill be going back anytime soon. spend your money elsewhere. they treated me with no respect at all. cant even get a reply when i siply said good morning.
Nice Place – I noticed several negative reviews that cite high prices. I just ordered a very nice rifle from Benson's, and while the price was not as low as I would have liked, the alternative would have been to order the item online. A friend of mine also purchased a rifle from Benson's; while we were at the range he had a problem with the rifle, but when next i saw him, he said that the gentlemen at Benson's were very helpful and that he was happy with the service. That is why I chose to pay a little more; I know if I have a problem, that I can go back to the shop and expect help. Furthermore, the ammo prices I have seen are very good, the staff is knowledgeable, and I have not once had the feeling that the staff works poorly with customers.
Nice Place – What's with a bad review? I went in there a week ago as a new customer just looking around and asking questions, well Joe took his time with me and showed me a few pistols I had an interest in. I went back this past weekend and purchased a Kimber, which they put away for me till I had the purchase document on Monday. I dealt with 3 different people during the process and all of them treated me very well. I also did my research and found their prices to be less than MSRP and not just by a couple of bucks.
Maybe those complaining customers are the ones that need the attitude change.
The only gun shop around; unfortunatly – The brother of a friend when to Bensons in Coram NY.
The man in question is a convicted felon and emotionally disturbed person (EDP).
Benson’s staff took advantage of this man by taking $800 for grossly overpriced air rifles. When the rifles were returned they were not only uncooperative but overtly hostile and nasty.
Due to there being the only shop around I have been there many times--I never quite liked the subtle attitude that always seemed to be there--now I know why. They took this mans money--money intended for his rent while he was suffering from a delusional state; how low can you go?
When the family tried again to return these rifles the ‘helpful staff’ at Benson’s gun shop called the Suffolk County Police.
Nobody seems to care about this--it is just beyond the pale of shoddy business practice.
NOPE NEVER AGAIN! – First off as a Marine im familiar with firearms.
If you want to be made to feel like an idiot this is a good place to go. Besides there GROSSLY over priced guns and accessories their gunsmith charges 3x as much as Hunter Sports over in Massapequa. And at least there they have manners and will spend time to show you different options as far as what your price range might be! Oh and They know what there talking about, I brought a Yankee Hill free float forend down to Bensons and they looked at it like some sorta high tech piece! Are you Kiding?! and then try to charge me $300 to install?! No thank you, Im not stupid. Yes they are local to me but ill drive to Chesters or Hunters. NEVER BENSONS!
