Bad experience with the Tackle Box store at Lexington Park, MD

Good morning to GT,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
I would like to share my bad experience with the Tackle Box store at Lexington Park, Maryland with you. I had a really bad experience and I’d like to warn anyone of you, if you are planning to shop at the Tackle Box store.<o:p></o:p>

Please do not plan to shop at Tackle Box store. Their customer service is terrible! They think that they are the only place to sell the guns, ammo, and fishing in the town. <o:p></o:p>
Here is my experience with the store.<o:p></o:p>
In two months ago, I ordered Glock 30 from the Tackle Box because they offered me the lowest price. Anyway, I ordered the XS Small Dot night sight from www.Rockyourglock.com. I was afraid to mess up the night sight installation because I never had done it before. I decided to have someone to install it professionally, so I’d like to have Tackle Box to do it for me. I had to wait for about a week and half to have it installed.<o:p></o:p>

I got a call that they installed the XS small dot night sight on my G30 and it looked all good. I took it to the range and I shot it. It didn’t hit the target as it was suppose to. It was always too high. It only hit well between 0 – 15 yards. <o:p></o:p>
Anyway, I couldn’t hit it well so I had decided to take it back and to replace it with the Meprolight night sight. Therefore, I asked the Tackle Box to remove the XS small dot night sights to replace it with meprolight night sight. They took it off and it was a messy job because the “copper glue” was all over it. I brought in the Meprolight NS to the tackle box. I had to wait for two weeks and half because their gunsmith guy didn’t came in as scheduled. That’s was little odd to me at that time.<o:p></o:p>
I got a call that they installed meprolight night sight on my G30. Therefore I came to the store to pick up my G30 and I saw the horrible job that they had done with the night sight. The “copper glue” was all over it and they hammered the night sight in it. They have made some dents on it. I was so mad because I paid them to do the professional job to install the night sight. They screwed it up and I had a talk with the Tackle Box’s owner. The owner said, “There is nothing wrong with the sight. It is aligned right.” I became mad with him, and I said, “Well I paid you to do the professional job and this is obviously not a professional job because you have made mess with the glue on it, and you made some of dents on it. Now the night sight isn’t pretty anymore. I can’t take it back to where I brought it because it is damaged from one of your crew. Therefore, I want to get the refund of all the expenses that I paid to this job and the cost of the night sight.” Guess what?<o:p></o:p>

The owner said this to me, “Get out and I am not going give you anything!” I was like whoa, so I talked with one of his crew and I clearly saw that they agreed with me but they couldn’t do anything. So I had to negotiate with the owner to get some cash back. Therefore, I got some cash back. I am glad that I got some cash back rather than nothing.<o:p></o:p>
From now on, I will never shop at the Tackle Box store again. I will advise others to not go there.<o:p></o:p>
Here is the link to the location of the tackle box store.

By the way, when I get to home tonight and I will take some pictures of my G30 with the damage of the night sight. I will make another thread to ask for your advice to see if I should replace it or to keep it.

God’s grace be with you,
