    Good Gun Shop feedback

    After reading a comment on another thread about how people often complain about bad experiences with shops but never mention the good ones, I thought hey why not have a thread about the good ones.

    So I'll start off - I've had good service and sharp prices from the following outifts:


    Thai's Hunting and Fishing - Timaru

    Shooters World - Gore

    Centrefire McCarthy's - Dunedin

    Helpful guys, i wonder down every time i get a WOF and have a chat and discuss guns etc
    Can't do big discounts on all items cos they don't buy bulk but sometimes i don't mind paying that little extra knowing its going into a local business not a nationwide chain-store.

    Don't get me wrong chain-stores have there place but i'll always go to the little man 1st if i can

    Agreed, after having a bad experience "trying" to buy a new rifle from a large franchise I went to Broncos here in Tauranga. Staff went out of their way to help me even though it was late in the day and close to closing. Awesome service right through the process and as a result have stopped purchasing anything through the previous shop and Broncos now get all my business

    Tairei Arms in Mosgiel.

    Top service recently from them when I bought a Vortex, EGW rail and Warne rings. First thing that happened the screws were for a remington (in a tikka pack). So they sourced the correct ones from distributor, these did not fit my rifle either.
    So I took the rifle down, they measured the thread and found that the pitch was out by 0.1mm. And the only way to mount the new scope was with some Optilocks, which Darren shouted the difference.
    And when it was getting picked up the zip (which was already damaged) broke when zipping it closed, so they grabbed another one off the shelf at no cost to me.

    Top buggers alright!!!

    As for other gun shops down here...(wrong thread to comment)

    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
