I think most gun shops have rude people working in them, maybe that's why I buy my guns online.

Ha ha,
I dont think its Steve. If he doesnt care enough about his reputation to speak to people the way he does, then behind the safety of the internet, he surely wouldnt be any different.
He has his little followers, he has all the parts that nobody has, he knows his guns so he doesn't need GT.

Maybe it's his mom or sister or most likely, one of is toadies. The guy behind the counter that doesnt actually work there?


Are ya gonna take those magazines.........boy?

Change of heart...

Steve lacks people skills...

If I had the money and knew what I wanted...I'd buy from him...Otherwise I can't say enough good things about 417 guns.

wow I haven't seen this thread in a long time... It actually came up when I was searching for gun shops in the Springfield Area on google.

RedRooster I'd steer clear of EDI... Can't believe he is still in business. I'm considering returning his brochures to him (I'm done with them now)...

He would probably just put them back on the counter and never even notice the skid marks.
Right next to the box of parts nobody else has.

I wonder why nobody else has all of these hard to get parts lying around. Maybe they have strangers that come in their stores and buy them up. What are they called again? Customers?

Funny I came across this thread here. I am from Springfield and have had dealings with Steve as well. I vowed never to go back to Steve's shop in Nixa because of similar experiences.

It is a great wonder how Steve is still in business. The way he treats customers is appalling, and cost's him alot of business. I know quite a few people that refuse to do business with him.

BTW, when I used to go in there it was never busy. It was always just him and his cronies. Whoever posted that Steve's was such a happening place........ is full of crap.

Alot of people in this area go to places like Cherokee firearms, Gunsmoke, Loftis, 417, or Gunslinger (dont care for gunslinger either). Why would they go there when there are so many other nice gunshops around.

+1 on gunslinger. Everytime I've gone in there, the owner has said or done something offensive.

I would highly recommend Doc Holliday's and Loftis across from Bass Pro.

I have had an experience like this before. There is a irish pawn shop near my school that i went into one day while i was waiting for my car to get fixed. As soon as i walked in the person behind the counter asked if there was anything i was looking for and i told him i was just looking. After looking at the knives i moved onto the pistols. I saw a pf-9 in the case for a very good price and asked if i could see it. He immediately asked if i was going to buy today, and i told him if i like it it would probably be sometime next week. He straight up told me no and that he would take it out for me the day i am ready to buy it. Needless to say i have not been back since and dont plan to. He would have had a really easy sale if he would have let me see it because i ended up buying one soon after and have since swayed people away from going their due to his rudeness to me.

Why dont you post steves phone number so we can call him and see if he has free magazines. I'm sure he would love 30 calls in one day :-)

If he is as bad as stated he would have driven all his customers to the competition. He is still in business despite several unhappy former customers. I would be curious to read his side of these anecdotes.

This isn't truly directed towards Steve as it is all people who act like this.
He didn't get this reputation from excellent customer service. Everybody has a point of view. Perhaps his is he's tired of all the idiots that come into his store day in and day out to bug him about gun crap!
I know personally people like that. They don't belong in customer service type jobs in my opinion. As for having customers...enough guys like like us love guns and we would go most anywhere to look and even buy them.

I suppose for fun we can sit here and make excuses for him. Heaven forbid he can try to treat people with a little dignity and maybe people, even total strangers wouldnt be writing about him right now.
I will start with my "excuse for Steve".
Maybe he needs to buy some doxidan. You know. Nature gives him a helping hand.

Next..

He OPY

Why dont you post steves phone number so we can call him and see if he has free magazines.

I would post the number, but it is probably against the rules. I had no problem keying on the name of the business and picking up the number on the first pass. So, OPY, you go and post the number.

I've been in there a couple dozen times and have had nothing but pleasant experiences. There prices are pretty high though, so I've only bought accessories there. Loftis just down the street is probably my favorite shop in the area, though.

It may be that he doesn't take me serious, because I'm a young guy... My dad seems to be well liked in there.

I am a fan of loftis though...when the time comes for me to buy my j-frame, I'm about 98% sure I'll pick it up at loftis.
