Definitely not somebody you'd want to handle your high end firearm. Too irresponsible, stupid, ignorant and arrogant. Bunch of dumb kids.

Sorry to hear the bad comments,but I've been there several times in the past few months and the Guys have been great with any questions and the prices were great. Brian talked me out of spending to much on a pistol, because he'd find me

Visited B&J 4x over the last 6 months. At time the store is SRO, and if you wait your turn the staff will always help you. They have joked with me and answered any all questions and gone out of their way to be helpful.\r

My wife and I went in to buy our first shotgun and were treated like dirt. We couldn't wait to get out. The salesperson was openly snearing at us and clearly thoughgt we were a waste of his time. Stay away!!

I have been looking for a AR-15. So I stopped in at B & J's to get a price S & W M & P 15 Sport. They told me $799.00. So I decided to look around. I bought the same gun at Target Sports for $689.00. Where the hell is B & J coming from

Unless your carry a badge or are a frequent spender at the store you are treated like dirt. It really seems like the guys behind the counter have a competition to see who can belittle the customers more. Not to mention every item is 10-15%

This place is obviously doing such tremendous business they don't need any new customers. They do not return phone calls and could really care less if they sell you anything. Don't bother.

I took my wife into the store to buy a pistol and confronted the owner and a police officer/customer arguing and shouting loudly. The language was very offensive.
Ya they have the product but go to Round lake or shooters in Valatie. whatever happened to that guy at J and J on western ave in albany? the big guy and the older guy with the yellow Lab dog. or the guy on central up by Colonie Toyota?

I heard that this Mutt Olesen drove them out of business. whatever-don't go to Olsens many stores.

Pros: has the product if you can stand the vulgarity

Cons: in two words, Brian Olesen

They used to have some pretty surly characters working there, but I think maybe they heard that they were getting a bad rep. Anyway, they have some nice people working there now. I dealt with a newer guy named Tony and he spent a long time answering my questions and then special ordered me a RIA Tactical 1911. I just bought a S&W Model 41 from them recently.

If people dont like the way B&J does business go some place else...I have been dealing with brian for about 8 years...He has been fair on all my Guns that I traded in...and have given me excellent deals on guns that I have bought...He has to make some type of money to have those buildings stocked with every need for the Hunter...I myself haven't seen Brian for almost 10 months and as soon as I walk in he Reconized who I was, talked for a few and went on with his business....even if there was other Gun Shops in the area I would still be a valued customer at B&J

Pros: Everything you need plus

Cons: none

They price gouge all their weapons since there's no competition in the area and noone can afford to start up a gun shop due to Obama/NY Anti Gun Dems. The service is terrible, despite spending thousands of dollars on multiple occassions they consistantly take their time acknowledging me. Low balled me on a trade by over $700 when I bought the rifle from them only 5 days earlier. Have given me wrong information on more than one occassion, causing me to drive an hour away unneccesarily. if you want good selection at a fair price, order from Dynamic Armament in Arizona, they are usually super quick and there's no confusion as to what they have in stock. Just pay B and J's 35 dollar transfer fee to get your guns for a grand cheaper from Dynamic. Oh, and make sure you check the NY legality up front from Dynamic cause B and J will claim it's not NY compliant, and charge you to modify it so that they can control what comes into NY.

Cons: everything else imaginable, prices, service etc

Top quality personell, and firearms. The absolute premier destination for firearms in upstate New York. And they understand business. Buy low sell at market value. And be around with customer service for a long time. Alot of others have come and gone, while more should go. but B&J have it together! Nice place!

I did not have a lot of knowledge going in to Band J guns and they totally took advantage of it, and sold me a Panther Arms LR308 with no up grades for $2,000. and said that was the list price. They are sold everyday for $1,169 or less from most honest dealers. The last two guns I have bought since then was a Smith and wesson tactical and another Panther Arms LRT SASS both were bought 10 to 20% below list that is listed on Panther Arms and Smith and Wessons web site from honest dealers. If you don't believe me check on line for the factory list. then go in there shop and check it out for your self. Then call some dealers on the Smith and Wesson and Panther arms web sights. Why would anyone shop there unless you did'nt know, and they wont tell you.Friggin rip off bastards.!!!!!!!!!

Read other reviews and thought I would give them a try. Large selection of weapons available and knowledgeable staff is very true. Wanted to by a black gun and found that their looking to make $400.00 - 900.00 profit per weapon and and not willing to negotiate. Brought in weapons to trade and they low balled me on the trade value. Not good business practice. I guess they will ride the Obama train until it derails. If you don't mind paying more than top dollar for your guns, it's a good place to go. If you want to be treated fairly, go to Zacks in Round Lake.

These are some of the best and most knowledgeable people in the business. If you are looking for a place to purchase a weapon, this is the place to stop at. They have some of the best prices I have found and good quality inventory. They have a large selection and multiple locations.
