I would rate this business as an A+. I have been there many times in the last few years because friends have told me to go there for current , updated guns, equipment selection and very knowleable people. I have purchased three hand guns in the last year or two and all were top quality sidearms with very cable people answering my novice questions. I have returned several times for accessories and questions which are all answered with respect and patience. They are not the cheapest, but they are the best -go on line if you choose to gamble- go to Welcher's if you want top rate equipment, knowledge and service- it's really that simple...Jon Hepfer

After shopping around Federal Way, Kent, Tacoma and Lacey/Lakewood for a good gun shop I've settled on Welcher's. I was greeted well on the phone in my initial contact by Chris and he was exceptionally helpful in finding me a Sig P239 SAS Gen II. Not the best price that I found, but I'm more of a customer service guy. (The same woman has cut my hair for the last 22 years. I find a good place and stick with it.)
Customer service far outweighs saving an extra $20-$30 in my opinion.
I went to the store the next business day and Chris was there to take care of my needs. I bought the gun on Monday and he had it there on Wed. (2 days later) Rich called me to come pick it up. Service was top shelf as was their knowledge.
Today, I'm taking in a friend to buy the same gun, only in .40cal. They've earned my business and I will be sure and refer them to everyone I know when they are purchasing a firearm.
I had been loyal to another local gun shop for the past 20 years but they've become very rude in their attitude, know it all and seem to sneer at my research when considering a weapon. In most cases their reaction was rooted in their own ignorance and opinion. Much of that opinion was based on hearsay and not on actual experience with the weapon. After 3 occasions where this was evident I made my feelings known that this type of customer service was harming their business and that I was considering leaving. Their "oh well" attitude and indifference sealed the move for me.
Go to Welcher's. Ask for Chris. Do some research before you buy and if you don't know ask. They will help you.

I have only been to Welcher's Gun Shop once but i was very impressed with there customer service and i will continue to shop there because of it. I had been looking for a certain pistol in particular ( Ruger SR9c blackened SS ) for a while now. I placed an order for the pistol at my local gun shop just to be let down after a month of waiting, for them to tell me its on back order. So they refunded my money. I was told this pistol was hard to find in stock i called around and I founded it at Welcher's Gun Shop. Chris is the name of the employee that helped me with my purchase, he was very helpful and friendly. There prices were dead on with The Marksman where i had compared the prices. ( $419.00 ) Its hard to find good customer service these days, so i figured this was worth the 2 minutes it takes me to share the info. Thanks again Welcher's

As I entered Welcher's with intent to sell my Rifle today, I calmly waited (while holding Rifle in case) right at the counter for a good 15-20 minutes while the 3-4 workers behind the counter finished up with the other customers who were ahead of me, even though I was not greeted, I was not given the option to set down my heavy load, nor was I told someone would be right with me.

Then, 1 by 1 more people came in and right before my very eyes the workers went right over my head to ask these people if they needed help and / or someone would be right with them. I was absolutely amazed that this was happening. I walked out and will never return.

Bob and John and the crew will spend the time to evaluate what you need and give you straight advice. They stock top quality goods here such as Glock, Colt, Galco, Armalite and so on.

The store is more than an equipment dispenser. For this you pay retail, and IMO it's well worth it.

If you just want parts and know what you need, or some cheap ammo maybe try a big box store- or Brownells or Midway USA--

For expertise, it's hard to beat Welcher's.

I find the shop to be very professional and helpful. The staff is experienced and friendly. They have a wide variety of items for the gun enthusiast and are priced reasonable. I have shopped there for 20 years plus and have always been extremely pleased.

I have been shopping at Welchers for approximately 10 years. In that time, I have purchased at least $5000.00 worth of guns and equipment.

I think John and the boys, are the best gun store in the area for knowledge and customer service. Not only that, but if I don't bring Starbucks to them, Little Brian cries like a baby.

This gun shop has an ok inventory however they are on the higher side in reguards to pricing. I have found that most items are easily found cheaper at other buisnesses. There location is kind of of the beaten path and you have to park behind the building and walk around to the front. It is a rough area of the neighborhood so I am always looking over my shoulder walking around to the front.

PROS:
CONS: location
