Thumbs down Annie's Guns in Fremont (Formally Irvington Arms)

This used to be Irvington Arms, but apparently they sold it and now Annie's Guns exist.

I called them a few weeks ago and asked if they had a Glock 21 in stock, the guy on the phone rudely told me they had it in stock, I asked if he could hold it for an hour while I drove up from San Jose. He told me he would.

When I get there an old man asks me what I wanted... I asked him if he had any AR-15 lower receivers in stock (wanted one of those too), he again rudely told me they didn't have any lowers. I then asked about an a Complete AR and he yells at me and says "No! We don't have any AR-15's!"....

I just sigh and ask for the Glock 21 I called about.... He then tells me he sold it someone already! (took me 30 mins to get there!) I told him that I drove all the way down from San Jose to buy that G21, and that's why I asked him to hold it. Then he had the audacity to tell me that I didn't ask him to hold it for me when I talked to him over the phone, basically calling me a liar.

I was so pissed. I left and told him he was a piece of ****.

Yeah I don't understand what it is about gun shops being rude to people or acting high and mighty towards people. Thanks for the heads up I will make sure I don't go there and tell all my cop buddies in several like 6 different bay area cities to tell their cop buddies not to patronize them.

Meh. I remember selling a woman a lower drum head instead of an upper. It was for her son, a drum student, of 10 or 12. If you know anything about drums you know the difference between an upper and lower. I did not at the time. The woman came back with her son and showed me the holy head. I gave her the right head, about 4x the cost of the wrone one and told her son to pick out a couple pairs of sticks. They came to the counter and I told then it was on the house. The owner was at the counter next to me and said "I could not do that" as I was wrapping up the things. The owner pitched a fit! I told the woman it was OK and she was good to go. I got fired.

Next month she bought her son an expensive drum set and her daughter a silver flute.

Good customer service is good.

it's still ran by the same people, just that one of the business partners got bought out so they changed the name of the store.
