They operate a bonded warehouse. Ok, we get that nobody likes that, but they are simply offering a service that's been made necessary at a reasonable price. LET IT GO. I f you don't like it, don't get your weapons confiscated. If you DO, use them to transfer them to a friend at a reasonable fee. Anyone on Cape knows Mark. He may not get a gold star every day on his customer service chart, but he works constantly for our 2A rights. All of the employees there have always been fair when I've dealt with them. I don't know what this is at this point other than plain old trolling.
That's the thing right there. If you want a shop owner that's going to give you a big hug and respond to dumbassery with the patience and kindness of Mr. Rogers - maybe the Powderhorn is not the shop for you. DEFINITELY not, in fact. But in all the dealings I've had with them, they have been perfectly fair and honest. Not always the best prices on guns, once in a while a good deal. Even the much vaunted Mark outbursts that I've seen have been prompted by dumbassery. Not saying it's appropriate to respond as such as a business owner, but it's not like he's jumping people's shit just for walking through the door. All the staff there has always been fair to me, and every time I've gone back in there (I've only bought a couple guns there), they (Mark and Jerry, I think his name was) remember exactly who I am, what I bought there, what I do for a living, and always welcome me and ask how things are going, all that normal shooting the shit stuff.
The bonded warehouse thing - man, get over it, guys. They didn't make the laws, doesn't sound like they're doing business like that dickjob out in Westboro or Northboro or wherever he is. Sounds like their rates are reasonable, and I don't doubt they'd be willing to work with people on it. Trader Joe's does business with hipsters, yet a lot of us still buy food there, right?
