Here's a tip for this store! CLOSE! This store robbed me of $400.00 I had on layaway. I lost my receipt while I moved and they could not pull up my account with them by my name and info. What kind of business doesn't keep records on a

Do yourself a favor and do not go to this store. The circus that runs it is exactly as the review of 10-2-10 states. That fat thing is crazy and the place is a dump.\r
Stay away, what a joke and overpriced. They act like they are doing you

Who is the fat red head that cant stop screaming at I guess her boy friend very unprofessional I walked in ya phil is gone but she is ten times worse then he ever was at least he new what he was doing or talking about she is just fullof it and dosent no a thing about guns. There is a new young kid probably in his 30s ex military i guess seems to be spot on an trust worthy.

They finally got rid of the big mouth who was pissing people off and changed their staff. Yes it's different from the other stores I've been to them all in the last 17yrs and at least they provide alot of information about guns and don't pressure you into something that won't fit your needs.
The store has been cleaned up in the last couple of years and looks alot better. Still not commericalized like the other stores, but they have a huge inventory if your looking for something rare or hard to find. I also bought a .45 Hi Point and I don't understand why everyone bitches about the price go online and buy it and pay the transfer fees & tax. It's a good gun for the price plus they give you free basic handgun course and range use for free. I also took the CCW class here and it was a little more money but it was an NRA course and it's allows you to carry in 16 states. Since they made the changes in staff and cleaned it up a little it looks better. At least I don't have to wait around for 20 minutes to get help like other places, just because I'm a woman doesn't mean I don't know anything about guns. Give them another chance if you want good advice. If you want cheap flake powder ammo go ahead and support China and shop at Walmart.

Do your homework. I didn't do enough homework before I walked into this store and the smooth talking bozo with the fu ed up voice got me. He made me feel like I was getting a great deal and I bought one brand I didn't research (DPMS) My fault, I trusted him. Its alright though, they lost a customer.

Pros: good guns

Cons: Cons

Stopped by see what they had. Before you go inside, there is a sign on the door that states "don't bother to come inside unless you are a Nevada Resident" and no cell phones allowed in parking lot". Very little merchandise inside. Foreign looking guy had a bad attitude Acting like we were wasting his time being there. We will not be going back.

Cons: bad attitude, disorganized

The two degenerates that the run the store outright lie. They outright overcharge, like one other poster said. Ran the card and wouldn't return the overcharge.

Absoluety the most terrible and rude treatment I have ever dealt with. Sheisters and crooks are the best words that describe these guys.

Great place to buy guns the people here are very helpful and experienced. If they still have the indoor shooting range it's great. You can shoot anything under the sun full automatic or semi

When I read some of these reviews, I just had to laugh. I can see that some people would come away with these kinds of opinions. I have been setting in the store watching it happen. People seem to have an expectation of a mall type store when they walk in to National Survival Store. Hello, you are not going to find it there! National is a small store, not much bigger than my garage. But once you get past the obvious you will find it is a fascinating place to visit from time to time. National is a place to go if you want to buy a real gun at better than average prices, learn how to clean and care for it, and learn to shoot it safely on an indoor range. One of the things I like about National is the one on one service you get. If it is your turn to be helped you get their full attention from start to finish. Everyone else has to wait their turn until you are done and walked out the door by Phil (The salesman and the instructor). If you are a very impatient person or think that you are a very important person, this is probably not the store for you. On the other hand if you have a question or a problem, this is the best place in town to pull up a chair and learn something. Mark, (The owner, is the very dry guy behind the counter) is not rude, but to the point. Now that I have been around for awhile I think he actually is quite entertaining, as apposed to toxic. They have given me advice on customizing several firearms and provided me with data so that I could choose the stuff that worked best for me. If you want high tech, they have it or can get it. They have special ordered at least a dozen parts for me with no problem. As far as stuff with no price tags, that's true, not everything in the store has a tag on it. When I find something I want and its not marked, I simply ask how much it is before I decide to buy it ( I'm funny that way.) Lots of cool people shop there as well, and provide a climate of conversation and exchange of information. Check it out!

A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO, I WAS IN THE MARKET FOR A NEW HANDGUN AND TO TAKE A CCW CLASS. MY FRIEND HAD RECOMMENDED THE "NATIONAL SURVIVOR STORE" TO ME BECAUSE THESE LARGE CORPORATE PLACES ARE TOO PRICEY AND TOO POLITICAL FOR ME. HE ALSO SAID THAT THIS STORE WAS UNLIKE ANY STORE YOU HAVE SET FOOT IN. I ALWAYS WONDERED WHY HE SAID THAT TO ME , UNTIL I FINALLY WENT. HE WAS RIGHT , THE STORE WAS UNLIKE ANY STORE I SET FOOT IN. THERE IS A FEELING WHEN YOU WALK IN THAT YOU ARE LIKE FAMILY.(LET ME EXPLAIN) YOU GO INTO THESE BIG CORPORATE OWNED MEAT GRINDERS AND THAT'S EXACTLY HOW YOU FEEL. YOU PICK A NUMBER WAIT IN LINE LIKE A SHEEP AND THEY GRIND YOU THROUGH LIKE A MC DONALDS . THIS STORE GREETS YOU LIKE A FAMILY MEMBER, TREATS YOU WITH RESPECT, AND ACTUALLY LISTENS TO YOUR NEEDS.CAN YOU BELEIVE IT? YOUR NEEDS, NOT WHAT THEY WANT TO SELL YOU, BUT WHAT YOU WANT TO BUY.THERE ARE THREE (3) GENTLEMEN THAT WORK THERE AND THEY ALL ARE VERY KNOWLEDGABLE IN THE PRODUCT THEY ARE SELLING. YOU NEVER GET BORED TALKING TO THEM BECAUSE THEY ALL HAVE DIFFERENT PERSONALITIES THAT DIFFER FROM EACH OTHER. I OWNED 1 HANDGUN, I HAD IT FOR 4 YEARS. I HAVE ONLY BEEN A CUSTOMER FOR 2 MONTHS , AND I NOW HAVE 5 HANDGUNS. THEY WERE ALL BOUGHT AT THE NATIONAL SURVIVOR STORE. I ALSO TOOK THEIR CCW CLASS WHICH WAS A GREAT CLASS WITH MORE THAN ENOUGH INFO THAT WAS TAUGHT TO ME AT A GREAT PACE. ONE PARTICULAR INSTRUCTOR THAT I HAVE TALKED TO MANY TIMES IS ONE OF THE NICEST PEOPLE YOU WOULD EVER WANT TO MEET. WHEN I GO TO THE STORE, I ALOOCATE ABOUT 4 TO 5 HOURS BECUASE I GET CAUGHT UP TALKING TO HIM ALOT. HE NEVER HAS A PROBLEM LETTING ME PICK HIS BRAIN FOR KNOWLEDGE AND SOMETIMES JUST GOOD OLD CHIT CHAT. HE ALSO HELPED MY FATHER UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE AND BASCIS IN PISTOL SHOOTING.THEIR PRODUCTS ARE SOME OF THE BEST I HAVE SEEN AND THEIR PRICES ARE DEAD ON . SOMETIMES LOWER THAN I EXPECTED. GOOD PEOPLE, GOOD PRODUCT. I ALSO GOT A BONUS FROM THE STAFF, THEY ARE NOW MY FRIENDS.THANKS NATIONAL SURVIVOR

Cons: NONE

From the moment I walked into the store I got I had a wierd vibe. Was I in an actual place of buisness or was I in the basement waiting to meet the gimp. The customer service was horrible the prices were not bad as marked but beware of unmarked items as they will triple the normal price it should be and charge your credit card without telling you. When you catch them they say they already ran your card and they do not except returns. The feminine guy behind the counter seems extremely capible but has the worst condesending attitude I have ever encountered. They have a really big rotti behind the counter who seems friendly untill you go to look at something in a case and he lunges at you as if to ripp your face off. Last but not least theres the raspy voiced hairlip guy who wonders around aimlessly (he works there). He also has a cannon on his side and was in pantyhose they time I went there. Talking about guns from stargate atlantis and the a-team. He even went in the back and emerged with some semi auoto tatical rifle boasting it was the same one the used on stargate. He then takes the magazine out of the gun to show everyone that it was fully loaded then starts spining the loaded weapon around like a toy. Talking about how he was surgical with it from 7 yards away. I truly couldnt make this stuff up in fact I send peaple there as a joke and they either walk right out or have some really interesting stories to share.

well we poped into this store for the first time refered by citylife add, for guns starting at 155, well they actually had them and information on all we asked about ,my wife mentioned she even felt comfotible about the answers we got to our questions and not being looked down on. we ended up learning alot and buiying 2 guns and also taking a class ,when you buy a gun and they teach you how to use clean and shoot the gun, At no charge to me that marked a level of service that is a step above, showing genuine concern over our knowing the weapon and how to use it., now it did seem more like a military store than a gun store but they said it was such, not a sporting store but a special weapons facility work with real soldiers and the police, selling silencers and auto guns , so with all the people we met and regular customers spoke so highly of them we have made it our place to meet and share our expierence thier with others.. City life is smart to continue thier add as it is a great perspective on the vegas lifestyle, and world conditions and anything else people sitting thier spoke of our rating is a 4 based on it is nice but not a standard store it is more for the gun lovers and not the everyday shopper but inforative educational to say the least and we did mention it to freinds so there it is and our guns are good, we havent had any problems and got good price on them so we are happy with our shopping with national.. as we always say make your own opinon..

I've never seen a dirty shop like that.
I think they've never cleaned since they moved in.
The guns and knives there will be easy to rust.

I stopped in to pick up some speed loaders and a spare "MAGAZINE". I originally asked for a clip and apparently got the treatment because I didn't know the difference between the two. The speed loaders were a good deal at 7 bucks a piece. The "MAGAZINE" didn't have a price and I should have asked! I was charged $35 for a bersa .380 clip. It most have been the most expensive clip in the whole place. Beware of items with no price in this store. The owner will stick it to you BIG! I checked on Midway afterwards and found them for 14.99. I know where I won't buy my next gun. Unfortunately I have sent friends over there in the past. BIG MISTAKE!

The owner is knowledeable. I used to buy all my guns there until I couldnt take it anymore. The condescending temperament got old. They do have some good deals. Dont ever ask to have them handle a shipment for you as it is the toughest shop for that in town. Last time i was there they had just opened a range. The crazy rules made it easily justified to go shoot at American Shooters around the corner. I now prefer discount firearms and they have the best range in town.
