I had a wonderful experience. Jerry was very accomodating with my schedule, since I am unavailable during normal working hours. He also did a wonderful job adding a few accessories to my new 1911. I would definitely recommend Far West in

Unfortunately the other two peoples reviews are prety much on target. I made the mistake of buying a rifle form them, and I say this because after I made my purchase and went back, they had no idea of who the hell I was. I am the type of person who does their shopping arround before I buy. This guys are over priced by quite a bit, and I would not recomend them at all as their service is horrible if you are not purchasing and just have questions, and if you purchase they will remember you for the time of the purchase and then forget about you. Prices are high, customerservice is poor, and if you need info they will not back you up. Thatswhy I recomend Goleta Gun Rick is one of the best people to help you with your gun needs, and every time you come in to his store unless he is really busy greets you pretty much by name....

I was looking for a specific handgun awhile back and could not find it locally so I asked one of the guys if they would call me if it came in. Took some time but I got a call that it was in, went down and took my handgun safety cert test

Stopped by several times, being indecisive on which firearm to buy. They seemed to not mind me fondling 3-4 guns at a time. They were patient, respectful, and kind. Would recommend shopping here. Those who say they are rude - it must be

I agree with the person in the other review, this place is awful. I went in a week before I turned 21 to take the HSC test, and they wouldn't let me take it unless I was buying a gun that day. They gave me some BS story about how they were "rationing" the cards. I went to Goleta Gun and Supply and they let me take it right then and there. When I made the mistake of going back on my birthday to look at guns, I waited around to be helped for 20 minutes while the guy behind the counter dicked around with two other people who weren't even buying anything. They didn't have what I wanted so when I asked if I could order it online and have it shipped to them he cut me off mid sentence and said "I don't do that." I found something I wanted to take a look at in the case but the guy just walked away and didn't care so I left quite angry. While I was there, there was another guy who was buying a used revolver and he had noticed there was a scratch on it and the person behind the counter replied "well it's too late now, you already bought it." My brother did have a good experience buying a shotgun from them though, so I don't know. I just know that they were jerks to me and I would never buy anything from them.

Pros: The store smells like pipe tobacco

Cons: The people working there are morons.

I went to this store to buy my first handgun. After waiting 30 mintures, the disgusting man behind the counter said, since I'm a girl, I should get a revolver after I repeatedly told him I wanted a 9mm handgun! When I asked to hold them to find which one I liked best, he said they were all too big for me!! AND when I asked to take my handgun license test, they said that was "at time of purchase of a handgun" - THIS IS AGAINST THE LAW. They don't even know CA laws!! Half of the items on their shelfs were dusty and looked like returns. Rick at Goleta Valley Gun & Supply is so much more knowledgable and will help you even if you don't buy anything. I bought my 9mm Taurus 24/7 from him and everytime I walk in, he remembers my name. And Rick's shop is much cleaner and organized. GO TO RICK!
