Bass Pro Shop Complaint - Never go to the gun counter at ANY BASS PROSHOP/ OUTDOOR WOLD - GUN COUNTER
AUBURN HILLS, MICHIGAN -- First, I've never had good luck at any time going there. Last weekend was the 3rd strike.
The first bad time:
I am a gun collector, I collect vintage rifles and hand guns. I am not a gun nut, but a true collector. I have a old ww1 hand gun, in. 32. Its a semi-hard to find round, and lower power (but in ww1 was the standard). So, I ask the guy behind the counter, do you have. 32. He gives me this long song and dance, why I need to buy a new gun. I say, I collect guns for historical value, and I can't afford that one right now." He says, "Well then you know nothing about guns, and I can't sell you any ammo, please leave the counter." He starts to talk to the next guy. I tell him where to get off, and I am actually removed from the store, physically.
The second Bad time:
Every one gets a second chance, so I went back. To use their range. They have an indoor range. So I get my rifle checked in, the check my ammo. Then they say I can't have this because its army surplus. I say, "so?" they then say they have to keep it, per Michigan law." I said, I don't think so. I reach over the counter to get my ammo can back. And they physically push be back, and threaten to keep my rifle too.
I talk to the manager, and 2 hours later, they loose my ammo. I get "loud" and they remove me again.
Third time: last weekend.
There was an add they ad for vintage rifles. Good price too. I was willing to deal with the B. S. for the sale. So not only did they not have it. they called me stupid, for not seeing it was only at select stores. They told me, I was obviously too stupid to pay attention to detail, and would not sell it to me anyway.... and, you (me) was taking up my (his) time." I went to the manager. He said, I agree with Ross, get out of my store!" Now, that's for the Great Lakes Mall store. In Auburn Hills, Michigan. Go to Dunham's... they really are better all ways around!! Also, they have a better selection of ammo too!! I am a major fan of Dunnham's!
