My name is August and I am the owner. As an authorized dealer I must adhere to published retail pricing guidelines. You will get the absolute lowest delivered price by calling my direct line. 512-567-7855. You will get much more than that however. I want you to get the right gun both for you and your application. You won't be passed off to a clerk, rather you will speak directly to ME. Have the confidence you are buying the exact gun you need for your goals by discussing it with a master class competitor, instructor and fitter with over 40 years of experience in the shooting sports. I know the guns I sell and their makers. I visit them all and have relationships with their owners and gunsmiths. You will know what you are getting and be happy when you do. Thank you
A TRULY DIFFERENT BUYING EXPERIENCE
We are not open to the public so your gun has not been handled unlike retailers where guns are endlessly handled, slammed shut and clacked back on a rack countless times by the masses. I have managed firearms retail and could not stand this aspect of it. When you receive a gun from me it’s been packed with care and arrives as your NEW GUN. One person handles each gun from the time it arrives until it leaves and that is me.
When a gun is sold it gets properly packed that day, by me with FedEx tracking sent to my client immediately. I contact your FFL FOR YOU, and handle all the paperwork. California? No problem, I have been shipping there for over a decade. Canada and Australia- have sent many there, just ask for details. Buying a fine gun should be fun and exciting. I don't want to sell you one gun, I want your business for life and want your referrals from building trust. I have been the largest seller of Caesar Guerini, Syren and Fabarms for the 5th straight year because of service and value. This is my model and I hope you give me a call. THANK YOU for reading.
