I have been going to Imbert & Smithers for about 15 years and I cannot take it any more! I just picked up a piece that was in for repair. When I dropped it off, the smith told me it would take about one week and cost no more than $40. I picked it up two days ago after ten months and $125.

Whether you are buying (10% higher than most other stores), ordering something custom (if you are not a good ol' boy, they will not even call the vendors), or looking for repairs (see above); expect a really expensive headache!

Pros: Used gun selection

Cons: high prices, lack of customer service, poor inventory

Didn't know what exactly I need - never had a shotgun. People there are so nice, so helpful, so knowledgeable, and so patient!! I was there FOUR times until I knew what I need, and they still patient and respectful!

And if that is not enough: I needed a gun for two separate, conflicting purposes. I was about to buy a gun plus additional barrel. But they offered to sell me TWO, guns, each perfect for it?s purpose, with such a huge discount. HUGE - it was just $50 more than a single gun plus extra barrel! Unbelievable! And, well, they told me if I ever want to buy anything else ? any gun ? they?ll give me same discounts. How about that?

Oh, yeah ? their base price was the lowest I was able to find anywhere on the internet. And, since gun purchased on internet would also have a mandatory transfer fee and delivery charge, their price was lower than internet?s lowest.
