    Made my first trip to Champion Arms

    Today I found my self in the Seattle area so I made a trip to Champion Arms, I have never been there before and always herd good things. Unfortunately no one from OCDO was working last night when I pulled in around 6pm but I still had a good time. The staff was very friendly and very pro open carry, I walked in with my XD on my strong side with a extra mag and tac light on my other side. No one gave me second look or stared at me nice I was out of place. I ended up renting a Ruger 38 at the range and blasted through a box of ammo. I have never shot a 38 before only 357's and was amazed at how much snap that little light weight snub nose had, my wrist is still a little sore. I came back out of the range and had a nice chat with a man who had pony tail before I left. I could see my self going back there next time I am in the area they have a really good pro gun environment going on. One of my best open carry experiences

    Deros and I, as well as some others, have been OC'ing there for a few years now with (to my knowledge) ZERO negative encounters. In fact, they used to ask Jim and I for more of the pamphlets. Now that Gogo and M1 are there I doubt they'll need to.

    Sorry to have missed you last night, please feel free to stop in again anytime. If you are looking to buy/order a gun please let us know. The best way to do that is to call Tom or email at info@championarms.com.

    I went in for my first time last month and couldn't be happier. It was a nice shop, not a lot of inventory but there was a good selection to choose from. I will be coming back to try out the range. Nick and team were very professional.

    BTW - They had some good used guns at resonable prices. I saw a G21 and a few others for less than what people think they are work on a few other gun boards.

    I just ordered a Keltec PLR-22 on Friday. I couldn't be happier with the service I received there. The prices are also a lot more competitive than they were a few years ago.

    Once a month. Just once a month.
