I have shopped for guns and related equipment at Mahoney's,Crowders,Montes,Dick's sporting goods and Walmart. To me Tim Crowder and his' wife have always been fair and pleasant to me.If i remember correctly he cut like $ 150.00 of a VEPR 223 because i told him i liked it but couldn't afford it at the time. Mahoney's had run out of the new Smith and Wesson M&P 40,i told him what Mahoney's was charging and on the spot he undersold it by $5.00. My wife and i were new customers,we stopped in on our wedding day,he gave us a free box of Speer Gold Dot 357 mags.He didn't even know us. I visited his' shop many times and he never asked me to leave even if someone else would have said i was loitering.None of the other gunshops even gave me a special deal like he did with the Russian VEPR 223.I think that people are way to hard on a friendly couple that i just can't see in a bad light.Thanks Tim i hope you'll be opening again soon. Jim

First, you people are morons if you order anything from this place. Let me be clear. This has been Tim Crowder's business model for years. He orders a bunch of guns, doesn't have the money to pay for them and waits for some unsuspecting souls to come in looking for something he can order. When he has enough money to pay for the guns already sold, you may get your gun. He simply pays for the upcoming guns with future sales. NOW..pay attention, NEVER order a gun from there or pay any amount, I don't care what he/they promise you! If Tim has a gun in stock, its probably a good deal, because he needs the money, see aforementioned. If he has to order it, RUN, see aforementioned. Handguns are required, by federal law, to be shipped over night....now when Tim orders it Monday morning, and let's assume he really does order it, the gun ships next day air from a distributor. The gun arrives Tuesday but he doesn't have the money to pay for it...so UPS makes three attempts and then sends it back. I have seen him take fists full of money out of the register to go eat and pay for his fancy cars. You order something from them and don't get it, your fault. I would call the ATF and file a complaint then the District Attorney, they all know him and don't seem to do much. Ask anyone that has done any amount of business there about the Demo (non-transferrable) MP-5 he has sold countless times for quick cash only to have to give the money back after people get smart and call the ATF on him. Its literally the same old stuff. Don't forget, you can get your vacuum parts there as well...really? By the way, he sells guns (when he has them) for $50 over cost all day long. Look at the E on the back of price tag, the letter represents the number in the alphabet, E=5 or marked at $50 over cost, no I'm not kidding, he is a snake. He has also had cancer for I don't know how many years. At best he's over weight and the stress of having debt at the one million mark is enough to kill you.

I am a vendor in Montana that made the mistake of selling our product to the Crowders. I have been waiting for payment for almost 2 years. When I called Tim told me his wife would call me back with a credit card payment. I have still never heard from June. When I call to talk to her, she is never there. Now the phone number has been changed, and the other one I found, no one will answer. They have no merchandise because they wont pay for it.

Tim Crowder and his wife June are by far two of the most dishonest, lying, deceitful, people I have ever dealt with. I have been trying since July to be paid for guns that I gave to Tim on consignment. The guns have long ago been sold! I have been given the runaround by bothTim and June . Tim has gone as far as answering the phone (which is rare) and saying that he (Tim) was not in. Only by promising (not threatening) to take legal action have I been able to recoup the bulk of my money. Even at that, I have been lied to again. Tim, who uses the excuse that he is ill for his not being at work and not knowing what goes on in his own business, will lie and speak of his belief in God all in the same breath. This man is not stable and his business needs to be shut down. June, is the one that has to do the calling and pleading to please don't send her husband to jail. "Tim is really a good man" she tells me. They are a menace to anyone who does not know of their horrible, dishonest ways and tries to do business with them. I wish I had researched them before I began dealing with them, it would have saved me a lot of grief.
If I could give less than one star, I would, because this place of business is so far below unsatisfactory it doesn't deserve even an unsatisfactory. Please beware of Crowders!!!!

Tim Crowder is nothing but a big fat bi-polar crook, a dumb crook at that. His business is def. on its last legs. Crowders USED to be the place to shop several years ago but thanks to that piece of crap its now the laughing stock of the tri-cities. I agree with Jay.M in that i have seen better selections at the flea market. The man is nothing but immoral and snakelike, he'd rip off an old lady for a dollar if he could. My advice to anyone looking up his joke of a store is to go to a different gunshop, like Mahoneys, Byrds, Tri cities gun depot, etc. Anyone would be better than him.

when going into the store you are greeted by a slimy fat man named Tim Crowder(the owner). His objective is to get as much money out of you as he can while never getting you the gun or accessory you ordered. The man just comes off as a huge fat sleaze bag, who tried to tell me that he had a 200,000 loan coming in to fill up his shop when i asked about the low inventory, Ive seen better stock at the Kingsport flea market. I should have stuck to my gutt and walked right out but stupidly I believed the owner when he told me he could get a rare assualt rifle for me by the following Tuesday at fifity dollars over cost. All I needed to do was pay for the gun in advance, needless to say my already paid for gun wasnt there that Tuesday. Like any concerend customer who dished out large amounts of money for a item I called down there repeatedly and all I got from the employees working there was that i had to either talk to Tim or his wife June. This went on for about 2 weeks until I was finally able to get in touch with June Crowder. If anything talking to this woman made me even more angry. All she did was tell me that Tim was sick and that he handled all the ordering and hadnt been in working since he took my money. Yet she assured me that my gun was on its way and told me not to worry. I guess he wasnt too sick to take my money. I kept calling down there for about a month and by chance I mananged to catch Tim by surprise and when I asked him about my gun he must have thought I was really dumb or naive beacuse he spouted off some bs about how he was sick and the gun manufactuer had ran out of steel and so they were waiting for more to build my gun and get the order out. I had two problems with that, 1 being he told me initially that the gun was indeed in stock with the distributor, thus proving himself to be a liar, and 2 its just downright insulting to me for him to think that i would fall for that bs about how the gun manufacuter ran out of steel! I finally had enough of all the crap and demanded my money back. Suddenly Mr.Crowder wasnt so sick and frail, he pretty much exploaded at me over the phone and said some pretty hateful things to me and said that i wouldnt get my money back and just to wait however long for the gun. He made it a point to say that he had "cancer" and that i shouldnt stress him so much. tired of his crap i just hung up on him and called an attornney friend of mine to handle the situation and he did. I got my money back and the best part was Mrs.Crowder thanking me for not taking her piece of crap crook husband to court. By the way that coward wasnt even there when i got all my money back, I guess he couldnt face the music. So a word from the wise never order anything from there or trust a single word out of that guys mouth. The best part is i recently heard from a friend of my in the repo business that his electric blue dodge charger got repoed for non payment........paybacks sucks

I ordered a pistol over two weeks ago. I was told it shipped 14 days ago. They still don't have it and can tell me when it will be there. They say I need to talk to the owner Tim and he won't take my call. They keep telling me to call back in an hour. I've called over 100 times and I'm fed up with it. Going over to Mahoneys tonight.

Crowders Vac & Gun Shop is easy to find right off 11-E they had a huge selection of both guns and vaccuume parts. I had looked all over for a belt for my particulkar vaccuume with no luck at all till I found this place. The people were friendly and helpful. the only drawback was that this showp is very small and was packed with things.
