Specialty Sports & Supply

This was a shop in Colorado Springs that I was trying to get everyone I know to go check out because it is the candy store of gun stores as far as I can tell and well worth the drive.  Even when most stores had nothing, they had a huge variety plus they are the only store that I've come across that sell women's holsters.  I loved the store, it was always a treat to go down there and just look at all the yummy things I wanted but now I am on a campaign to rescind the raves that I had given them to everyone person I ever knew.

A couple of months ago I had bought the Marilyn holster, it's a holster that attaches to the side band of a bra (I can't do the flash bang because I don't have that much real-estate) but I felt optimistic about the Marilyn (I did want the Betty but unfortunately even though it was made specifically for my gun, my gun just didn't fit it).  Wellbeing a bra holster I could try it on in the store, and I did purchase and try it on in the bathroom but I wanted to take it home and try it with other outfits to see if it would work.  Before purchasing I asked the sales person if there was a time limit on returns.  He said no, which was why I decided to make the purchase since I don't get down to Springs too often.

After trying the holster with a few outfits I determined that it just wasn't going to work for me, though $45 doesn't seem like much but it is when it's wasted on something I'm never going to use.  I asked my coworker, who goes down to the Springs weekly if he would mind returning it for me and follows the story.

The first trip they told him that he couldn't return it unless he had the credit card that was used to purchase it; he told me that the cashier girl was extremely rude to him.

Second trip, I guess Chris had gotten down there and realized he had misplaced the holster somewhere and offered to just give me the money for it, I told him to just wait because I was certain it would show up again and it did.

Third trip, he had the holster, the receipt and the card.  They told him because it was now over 30 days that all they would give him was store credit.  Once again the cashier girl was extremely rude and told him that on the receipt it states, 30 day returns, which neither Chris nor I can find on the receipt.

I was pretty pissed and tried to call and talk to a manager but none were around, I do have the name of the co-owner and I just haven't gotten around to calling, part of me just wants to say fuck it and just never shop there again and continue my campaign against them.  Which because of their treatment and misinformation they lost $850 sale already because they were also one of the few places close to me that stocked left hand bolt action guns, which was my next purchase, which I bought up in Grand Junction instead. 

Maybe in the next few days I'll make the call just to see what they will do to rectify the situation and if I do, there will be a follow up post. (12.0)
