I've been there many time. I've had bad experiences there almost always. I could write an obnoxious bad review but settled on something more constructive for this store. We all WANT it to be goodbut it isn't. Firstly, the owner Ron

Horrible service if you go on a busy day no one will help you unless you have a gun in your hand. you can stand around and wait for someone to help you and they will just stare at you and walk right by and start helping someone else.

Worst staff ever. Called and asked if they had a certain item. Person who answer gave a very confident "Yes MANY!" I went down to purchase this item the very same day. Not one of the brainiacs even tried to find what I was asking for. They

Ron Peterson's overall is a great place to shop. Yes, there are a couple of old grouches on the floor, but most of the employees are very helpful, knowledgeable, and courteous. They even give blow pops to the kids; after asking parent's

I had been here three times. Bad experience all three times. I figured the first two were a fluke but after three times I have to review it. The first time I went there because I use an oil called ballistol. Their website said Peterson's was a retailer. I went and they were out. I asked an old man if they sold it and he said yes but they were out. I asked he knew if they were getting it soon, he rolled his eyes and said, ""what do you think I'm psychic, I don't know when it could come it could be anytime."" I found this answer unacceptable so I started leaving. He starts backtracking and saying something like you gotta understand I blah blah blah. I say you gotta understand I'm ordering on amazon and I'll have it on tuesday. So a little time passes and I want to grab something. This place is by my work and it is convenient so I take the dive and stop back in. I get what I need and I get in line. There is one girl working at one register with at least 50 people in the store. This seems a little unbalanced. She is working on a FFL transfer. She kept having problems, making mistakes and she wouldn't even look at me. I'm just standing there with my merchandise and my cash visible in hand, waiting for someone to ring me out. After about 15 minutes of waiting she said that she needed a second opinion on something she will be rite back. I put my stuff on the counter and leave. So again today I stop by and try to buy the same things. I get in line and wait. Again five minutes pass and no help. I am waiting in front of an employee and he is helping a guy. After he was done helping him, the employee said bring it to her (the girl working the register) and she will lighten your wallet a bit. So that guy cuts in front of me in line then the employee that should have asked me if I needed help sees some guy walking by, calls him by name and just starts small talk with him. Again I leave with nothing and I vow to never return. Just save yourself a bunch on time and energy, go somewhere else. This place cannot handle any new customers.

twice given bad information, i mean very bad information regarding FFL shipping of firearms and once regarding the functionality and safe operation of a Reminton Rifle. I stand by my my remarks , the last two vists there about twelve months apart, absolutely black and white bad information and rude service staff, twice.\ntake your biz somewhere else.

Ron's is best for buying stuff that you cant find except on line. M1 Carbine mags, or mil spec mags like for my Bushmaster .308. I traded up for some replacement grips on one of my .44 mag Vaquero after I broke the other ones shooting Remington magnum ammo. Ron pulled some buffalo grips off of a Vaquero he had and I paid $30 for 'em; on line they run around $80. Most gun places low ball trade ins in Albuquerque, even if they sell 'em on consignment they want to move the piece, not sit on it. Buy long guns n shot guns at Walmart, they got the best deals. Sportsmans has great deals on pistols but might not carry your brand.

Big fat guy with curly hair is about as friendly as a rattle snake, their cashier is a land whale that can't add, and their ""trade in"" policy is a complete rip off. Not to mention that Mel guy is a complete d bag. The only ones I can stand being around are Tom, and Castanza. They're the only two in there that know wtf they're doing. \n\nThey wouldn't take my gun because I put velcro on the ejection port to protect the valuable internals from brass dings, another time they called me an out right liar when I took my Pre-89 SA85M in there to sell. claiming that I converted it all while looking at me with money symbols in their eyes. \n\nThey use a ""blue book"" which is basically a scam artists guide to ripping the ignorant off. Everyone else in town has joined the 21st century and uses the internet. \n\nTheir guns are mostly beat up used pieces of crap, which are more than likely stolen gang pieces if what everyone else in town says about ron is true. the good stuff gets picked before it gets logged in by the ""friends of ron"" \n\nTheir store is unorganized, and the salesmen in there often try to force a particular model down your throat even though you dont want it. \n\nPeterson's is the worst gun store in town, and I can't wait until the ATF finally shuts them down for being so shady.

I've been looking for a couple of pistols to add to my collection while trimming down some of the fat.\nI took a bunch with me around town to have them appraised for trade in value towards guns in stock.\n\nAt Ron's, one guy showed me some pistols, one guy explained their trade in policy, and another guy valued the guns I brought in.\nRon's low balled me like I couldn't believe. Half to a third less than any other store I went into, seemed more like a pawn shop than a gun shop in terms of trade in value.\nAt some places I got two values, trade and selling it to them. Ron's was generally equivalent to what I would get if I tried to just sell them to any other store. I did ask to make sure I was getting a trade in quote.\n\nI also noticed their pistol prices are relatively higher. \nMaybe they thought I was uneducated or retarded when it comes to firearms.\nOr maybe it's the economy and everyone is selling or trading their guns instead of buying. \n\nI don't think Ron's is a bad place. I just know there are a lot better places to go where you will get more bang for your trade in and prices are better. So I know I won't ever do business here.\nThe customer service is pretty standard to any gun shop I've ever been in. Their selection of used guns is great, new guns not so great (why I'm thinking they would offer me so little, they don't need any more used guns, even though mine have never been out of their boxes).\n\nSo I chose the 1 star of ""EH"" rather than anything more than that which says it's ""good.""

If you are in the market for a new or used firearm and want a knowledgeable person to help you, go to Ron Petersons. I went to Sportsmans Warehouse earlier in the day and had the same, RUDE, service I always seem to get there. I guess I wasn't dressed like a rich person, so the salesman hustled me through a couple items then walked away. I only go to Sportsmans about once every two years and now i wonder why I go at all. They judged the book by the cover and lost a sale. I continued on to Charlies and Ron Petersons and spent over $400 on weapons and supplies. Just because a guy has some spots on his T-shirt doesn't mean he doesn't have cash in his wallet.

I recently looked into purchasing a firearm and researched stores in Albuquerque and Im so glad I decided on Ron Peterson firearms to buy my first handgun, a Glock .40 caliber, 22 Model. I got a very good deal and a very good gun with excellent customer service.

Well, i am a new gun adventurer, my knowledge base if very limited. The Staffing at Ron's definatl'y from what i experienced, offer honest opinon's and know a tremendous amount about all makes and models. The Inventory they have is amazing, ""NO other gun store has the type of selection they have"" and from my tight budget, the pricing compared to precision or Charlie's is a huge difference, very very low markup on gun pricing... Definatly save your time looking for deals, they have the DEAL... \n\n\nLouis
