The prices here are somewhat high compared to other local establishments. In the past, I've had good experiences with the clerks (both younger gentlemen). I've never had direct communication with the owner until today, and unfortunately, because of it, I will most likely never buy anything here again.

*I do want to reiterate that I think the clerks are great; they are friendly and knowledgeable.*

The owner, who butted in to my contact with the clerk, was condescending and callous. I told the owner (politely and tactfully) that I felt he was being disrespectful to me. The owner went on the attack, targeting my particular law enforcement status in a way I can only describe is belittling. With what the store charges for their merchandise, I would expect professional and humble customer service.

I chose California Police Equipment because I felt they were a more professional alternative than certain retailers. Traveling to the their storefront is somewhat out of the way for me and there are other retailers within walking distance of my home. In the future, I'll be sure to give the other guys a try.

I work in law enforcement so I'm always hearing from co-workers experiences at local police equipment stores. Almost all were negative reviews. But, I decided to come check it out anyway since I was in the area. I have to say I see all these reviews that the sales people are rude, arrogant and so on, I totally agree. They're are very much so. This has to be in the one the worst neighborhoods in San Diego County. Had to cut the trip short cause wife was feeling on edge about the area and the sale agents rude behavior. I would not recommend this hole in the wall store to anyone.

Very Impressed I have been looking for a shop who knew their stuff and found it here. I was in the market for an AR 15 and the armorer there Patrick was very knowledgeable and helpful. Plus they are current on the Ca, Gun Laws lol, very nice experience overall I would recommend this shop to anyone who wants decent customer service

One of the best customer service experiences I have had! So I had passed this place a few times while driving up El Cajon Blvd, and had wanted to stop in for some time. I am working to get into the police academy, so I had a genuine curiosity to see what kind of tools are part of the trade. But then I had a better reason to go in: my mother lives alone and a prowler was recently outside her home. I wanted to buy my mom some pepper spray. The gentleman in the store was very helpful and sold me this little hand-held gun of sorts that fired police grade pepper spray at 70 MPH. When I told him that I was working towards joining the police academy, he was extremely helpful in giving me advice and pointers on how to train before entering the academy. The guys who run this place are very good guys. i heard them answer the phones and they were very professional and friendly. This place also has a GREAT selection of tactical gear. I will be doing business with this place in the future for sure.

The ""sales clerks"" working there are rude, very arrogant, and not helpful. A lot of my co-workers as well with me have the same complaints. Rude customer service, they act like their cops or something. Why would a ""sales-clerk"" where a gun on their hip? LOL. It's funny when they're just sales clerks. Value: overall expensive. Go to ACE Uniforms: they have a full warehouse of products with very helpful and knowledgeable staff. EEE is a great store for law enforcement needs, with very nice and helpful staff.

Great customer service!: Mike is the most knowledable gun salesman I have ever met! He can always help me find what I need. I will keep going there just for his great service.

If you are looking for tactical gear and equipment you will not be disappointed. They have a great selection of items such as holsters and gear bags. They also have a great selection of ammunition. It is pretty difficult finding .380 ammunition but this store always seems to have it in stock. They have an enormous amount of accessories for firearms. Lights, optics and cleaning kits to name a few. One thing I particularly like is they carry a huge amount of Magpul products. It seems like they have Magpul's entire catalog in stock. They have a huge selection of handguns and AR-15's in stock. You name it they most likely have it. And if they do not, they can get it for you. They also build AR-15's and sell them either pre-assembled ready to go or you can have a custom one built to your specifications. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. One drawback to this place is the price. They are expensive but they do try their best to match prices. If you need any tactical gear or a handgun, I would recommend this place.

I have been in several gun stores in the past and have never been treated so well. The customer service is great and the prices are very fair.

Went in to get some gear for the wife. Two guys working there were chatting with two other guys who were in the store, and wife and I walked around like kids in a candy store. After a few minutes, one of the guys asked us if we were finding everything ok. Wife was looking for a particular set of cuffs, but couldn't find them. Guy asks wife what agency she is with and then shows her where everything is, asks if she knows Sergeant soandso, or Corporal thisandthat, and they start having a great conversation about cop stuff. Guy was super helpful and got everything we needed for us, very relaxed atmosphere, and easily approachable. They don't make you feel like you are wasting their time (American shooting center) or high pressure sales (ACE Uniforms), and it was also super easy to get to. Awesome spot.

I've ordered two firearms through them and they have always treated me like gold. Their sales staff are very down to earth and genuine. You don't get the typical gun nut behind the sales counter, you know, the guy who claims to former special forces or who ""used to be a reserve"" with such and such police department. The shop can get rather busy at times so it's best to go when they first open in the morning. They are open 7 days a week. They will get more of my future business.

This place is GOOD. I was respected when i first went there. I was looked at in a manner that an unfamiliar face should be looked at upon entry. I immediately went to talk to someone. There was a firearm there that i was looking for, so i bought it. Plain and simple. They have a good selection of stuff all around. They don't necessarily carry the best prices in town but its not priced like a Cadillac dealer. If you are looking to buy equipment for duty (security/police) this place is a great place to go. They have several batons, several different types of chemical agents and several firearms. Lots of accessories. Cleaning kits. They've had a pile of used holsters and the like in there for a while now at GREAT prices. The new ownership is good, the old owner still shows up to assist in the transition. The people that work there are very professional and very protective. For example, they wont talk about batons with you untill you confirm that you have some sort of certification to carry one. I bought a glock 23 at a very very decent price.\n\nParking is on the sides of the building and i have never had a problem with the spots being full. Its near a subway if i can remember right so lunch is right there.\n\nGood luck!

Good customer service, good products, fair prices, business stands behind what they sell, friendly staff. Their manager is a Glock and Colt AR armorer and gets work done in a matter of days - not months. All work is guaranteed. Law enforcement personnel who are on duty get immediate assistance so they can get back on the road. Their prices may not be the lowest, but they are fair and the professonal knowledge and assistance received is worth every penney to me. I particularly like NOT being pushed into higher priced products I can't afford or don't want like most gun shops. I like their overall positive attitude - not at all pretentious.

Outstanding business. I've been to a lot of gun stores all around the country due to military service and this store has the best prices and nicest and very knoledgeable employees. I had my mind set on a glock 23 and was talking to the employees about it and asked what the best gun was for me. They asked me what i was wanting in a gun and told me about how they go shooting on thursdays with their customers. So i went with them one Thursday and they let me shoot a variety of their personal weapons. The next day i Purchased a springfield xd 40 and got an awesome deal on the gun, ammo, and other accessories. I do all my business there now.Im stationed in NC and i wait to take leave do get more stuff for my gun. I highly reccommend this store for everyone interested in purchasing a gun. They have everything from pistols, shotguns, hunting rifles, ar-15's and i just saw in their store on Dec 26th ar-15 pistols. They also have knives tactical gear slings holsters pepper spray scopes lazer sights lazer light combos. everything you can think of for guns and work. check it out. Also discounts for military and police.

A pin was walking out on my wingmaster 870. Brought it into California Police Equipment for repair. Staff was friendly and told me I would have a quote in a couple days. The price that was quoted was less than I was expecting and they had the gun ready for pickup days before I even had the chance to pick it up! When I went to pickup I was helped immediately. While I was in there I had a few questions about some handguns I was interested in (I'm not familiar with handguns at all.) They gladly answered my questions and had me hold a few different models. After I test out a few handguns at the range I'll probably purchase from these guys. I was treated with great professionalism and respect during my whole experience with California Police Equipment.

CPE is a GUN STORE. It was owned by a retired SDPD Lieutenant (who just sold it). Before Galls opened, they had the best selection of in-stock duty gear and had a very knowledgeable staff (esp back when Jeremy worked here). In fact, one of my old partners worked here while in college.

I purchased my first handgun here a few months ago. Justin is very professional and helpful. Patrick is cool too. They are both Glock Armorers. Pricing is hit or miss, which seems to be the story of all gun shops. Definitely gotta shop around for the best price on anything you may be shopping for. Keep this place in mind when you need something.

I came into the store last week looking to buy a shotgun for home protection. I purchased a Mossberg shotgun that the store owners son recommended. The owners son is a current San Diego Police Officer, he was extremely knowledgeable and honest with me. He didn't push me towards the most expensive shotgun like a previous store had done. i will definitely be back to this store. Hands down in my opinion the best gun shop in San Diego. James Diaz (Oceanside). The store is now owned by a retired Marshal and his son a current San Diego Police Officer.

First encounter was a good one. Walked in one day to ask many questions prior to purchasing a California compliant AR-15. Though I have many handguns and never owned a rifle before, I wanted to get all my questions answered and definitely didn't want to feel or look like a complete idiot. They figured out I had no clue, but made the experience comfortable for me to ask more questions to ensure that I was making the right decision for my AR build. Wasn't pressure just to buy! Met great guys like Justin, Mike, Chuck the owner, and Pat! Pat is a great gunsmith! Very LE friendly, since some of the family members are local officers themselves. if they don't have something, they'll definitely research it for you to find what you need! Haven't really compared the prices of too many of their products, but some things I found might possibly be cheaper at another gun store or online business. Overall, pretty satisfied and fair prices. Just like any consumer, use your best judgement to find the best deal! Two thumbs up to CPE.

The first thing Id like to say is I dont know if they have always been like this but my first time there about 3 years ago a female helped me while I was buying a pepper spray for my wife and she was very helpful and nice, so last week, while looking to buy my first handgun and checking prices, I decided to stop there first.\nThings couldnt have been worst.. (unless I had gotten shot of course).\nI walked in there looking for a specific model of hand gun and as I couldnt find it on the display, I asked the girl for it to what she said ""we may havr one there"" but didnt even come close to help me find it, oh and I was the only customer... 3 minutes later I ask her if she can come help me find it and then she comes, as she cant find it either, she asks the guy next to her about it, to that he replies they probably dont have it anymore as they rarely ever have this brand, so I raised the question of why they dont carry this brand to what he replies something like:they only make a couple of good guns"", ok... honest reply, its still all good... but he then continues: ""Anything Else??"" OMG !! he was kicking me out! I almost flipped... but yhen again hes carrying a gun right? So, I just turned and left....\nIm real sorry for the gun owner, he must be loosing a bunch of sales this way...

Employees very friendly and knowledgeable - they are not afraid to give you the skinny on what you're buying (good and bad). Lots of holsters, lights, clothing, boots - a few cases of handguns and knives.\n\n10% discount for military and police.

Not sure what the poor reviews are about. I went in (unbeknownst to me) right as they were closing one night. The guys told me that my purchase would take as long as it takes. I didn't feel rushed at all - they were super helpful, chatty, and VERY knowledgeable. I bought a pair of tactical pants cause they are super comfy (and expensive, but well worth it since they will last forever.) When asked if they would shrink, the guy said ""probably not. If they do, bring them back and we will send them to the manufacturer."" I also got a preview and intro to the tazers and protection equipment they carry, cheap to expensive, and some general info about home safety and gun specifics. Both guys were great, and I would feel good buying anything from them. They know their stuff, and they didn't hesitate to stay well past closing time until my purchase was done.

So I was looking for a good gun store in San Diego and I found this place. After reading the Yelp reviews it made be a little hesitant to go, but I went anyways. Yes the people behind the counter do give you a stare but you have to realize that these people own a gun store ( a lot of guns and a lot of money) and they are just being careful who walks in to their store. Anyways I purchased my shotgun for home defense there. The guys new exactly what they were talking about and I liked that. They made me feel comfortable. I would definitely recommend this place and yes I will be going back to buy more guns.

I would like to say thank you to the staff at California Police Equipment. They were very honost on advice and pricing. The gunsmith Patrick was very knowladgable and answered all my questions. The rest of the staff seemed to be knowledgable and on top of things as well. Everything from ammo and holsters to assault rifles and tactical gear, this store is truly your one stop shop for everything firearms and firearms related.

One of the most friendly gun store in San Diego. Excellent customer service and a great selection of guns and ammo at good prices. If you're looking for buying the 10-round AR-15 magazines, this is the store with the best price!

As a female, I am usually frowned upon when I enter a gun shop. When I walked into California Police Equipment I was pleasantly surprised about the outstanding customer service. They had low prices and a wide selection of guns and equipment. I finally found a great gun shop in San Diego.

California Police Equipment rates in my book! I bought my Peerless handcuffs and a pair of Magnum Force boots here for quite a bit less than Ace Uniform. The handcuffs were $10 less, and the boots were $40 less.

They have a decent selection of tactical gear and equipment, so its a good alternative to Ace Uniforms if you're looking strictly for gear. However, they also have a good selection of firearms for sale. I'd have to say this is among the best firearms sellers in town along with So Cal gun in terms of selection, customer service, and overall organization. The store associates were very friendly, let me look at each gun I was interested in, and even told me if the gun I wanted was not in stock they'd order it for me. I have not yet purchased the firearm I want, but I will probably lean toward this store when I do decide to buy it.

Pros: Excellent Customer Service

So far I have been here to do business a half dozen times or so. No real issues yet for me. The staff has been very helpful for me and genuinely seem to want to assist you. Just my experience.

Went there the other day and received very poor customer service. The older gentlemen was ignoring my request and just kept pushing the more expensive item on me that I could not afford. The prices are inflated and the neighborhood is a bit suspect. Plus they were not in stock in one of the two items I was looking for. As a cop, I recommend going somewhere else, I know I will. Be safe.

I went in on the first day do simply browse, and found a deal on a firearm that I could not pass up. When I asked to see the gun, the young man behind the counter seems too uninterested in helping me. So I left the store. However, my frugalness got the better of me and I returned the next day to purchase the firearm, but was treated with the same lack of courtesy and respect as a customer. So, in short, the prices are actually not bad, but the customer service is enough to turn people away. If you don't care about being treated well, go here, I suppose.
