I have bought several used guns from them and have been satisfied with the process every time. Yes, they get busy sometimes...use the time to browse. There is a lot of cool stuff in the shop. Apparently some people don't understand the

I have also dealt with the Manatee, i do have to say the place feels like a prison stuck in crap hole. and good luck asking anyone around to see a weapon and when they do decide to get off their cell phones they give you a crazy price.

All working the day I went in were the best. Just shows you can't always trust some unhappy campers. For some you can never make happy. THIS IS A GREAT PLACE AND I WILL GO BACK AND RECOMEND TO ALL!!!!

Charlie runs a good family business!!! I have been a customer for years. The guys down at University are great. They are no nonsense and deliver. The pricing is very fair and they get you what you want quick!!!\r

Nice building amidst an inner city - bad neighborhood environment reminicant of Tekrit!. HORRIBLE customer service - when requesting to look at an item was greeted with a t-shirt clad representative who didnt even budge from their cell phone! WILL NEVER BE BACK AND WILL NEVER RECOMMEND THIS STORE TO ANYONE! There is wayyyy too much competition to be treated poorly by an obvious police academy dropout....pathetic...

Pros: Aerobic exercise avoiding the clutter on the floor

Cons: Hmmmm - where to begin

I have been going to this store for 18 years it has a great selection of firearms and related items! The prices are the lowest & best in the area! If you don't see it they will order it for you and once again at a great low price! They buy guns -so you can trade in your used and unwanted older firearms! They also have rare and harder to find firearms and class 2 & 3 firearms! The local family owner and staff is friendly and knows their stuff! They do get busy, let them know your interested in a firearm then take the time to look around while they help the other customers. As another reviewer said when it is your turn - it seems you are the only one in the store at that time! PS - If you don't know something about a gun your thinking about "just ask them"! Overall University Gun & Pawn is a gun buyers paradise even for a first timer or a long time gun owner & buyer!

Pros: Low prices, Great Selection, Local Owned.

Cons: none

This place is great! They have the selection of a big gun store with the lowest prices I've seen anywhere (even comparable to most internet specials!), very clean and well-organized layout, friendly KNOWLEDGABLE staff.

When I went in they were VERY busy and a bit understaffed (they said they were two people down from their usual staffing due to illness and vacation), but when they got to me they made me feel like I was their only customer. The selection rivals other much larger gun-only stores (such as Shoot Straight) but the prices marked on the tags were about $200 cheaper, on average. (yes, two-hundred-dollars-cheaper!) I went in looking for a weapon that I was sure they wouldn't have. Shoot Straight had it for $540 and no one else in the area had one in stock at all. Shoot Straight told me the absolute lowest they could go on it was $450, and I walked into University Gun & Pawn and they had TWO of them, consecutive serial numbers, with the tagged price of $365, and the owner/manager let it go for $350 without arguing or haggling or making me feel like I was taking food off his table.

While waiting a few minutes for my background check to clear, the staff member helping me made very friendly conversation, and proved to be one of the most knowledgable and least-oppinionated firearms salesmen I've ever met (which is certainly saying something! If you've ever shopped for a firearm before, you'll know the type, 'gunstore commandos', 99% bias and bandwagon, 1% knowledge...definitely none of that here! Most times I find myself being the one educating the salesperson, but this guy was by far more knowledgable than I am!).

The overall environment was a friendly, almost family-run-style business. I would definitely buy from them again, and I'm pretty sure I'll check there first from now on!
