I had the best experience dealing with these folks at Dark Sun in purchasing two pistols this week.

I will simply not shop for anything anywhere else if I know that they have it.  Plus they are knowledgable and  fair.

I have bought 3 rifles with them and was very pleased with the experience. Hopefully they will stock the new SIG 522 and i will be able to purchase another rifle from them.

That's a monopod on that charger right ;)  'cause adding a forward grip to a pistol is a no-no and requires a tax stamp.

I had a good experience with Dark Sun Surplus a few months ago at the Dulles Expo show. What impressed me even more than my own transaction was that another 'patron' of their booth was waiting on his paperwork when he made a half-assed joke on his cel-phone about shooting someone who irritated him. The lady helping him promptly said, "Sorry folks I will not be selling you any guns." The guy insisted that he was making a joke, told her she was missing out on a big purchase since he intended to buy two guns, and then insisted he talk to the manager. The manager came forward and pointed at the lady who told them Dark Sun would not be helping them and said, "That's my wife, what she says goes, we won't be selling you any firearms."

Yeah, A few months ago I cannot remember where I saw it but there was some bad feedback on DS and I have not seen it at all.  I wonder if it was other retailers putting bad PR out there out of jeolousy. 

They are great folks

Their prices are fantastic.  Period.

In all honesty, I have found the two gentleman abbrasive most times I have interacted with them (including this weekend).  Don't know if it is the travel, crowd, lack of sleep, or what, but I dont think I have ever even seen them smile!  That being said, I have purchased more than half a dozen guns from them over the years and feel like I have always gotten a good deal and have been dealt with on a professional level.  The ladies have always been very friendly and helpful (of course, Im always smiling at them so they smile back wink ). 

I am not a retailer (though you might not know if you see the immense loads of crap that I carry around the shows looking to sell! smile ) , just sharing my experience.

I bought my daughter's 18th Birthday present from them (Glock 21SF).  They had the best price in the room (gunshow) by at least $50.  The guy I dealt with had the "bedside manner" of a rattlesnake, but so does my neurosurgeon. 

I'm there to buy guns, not have him teach "Manners" by Emily Post.  I'd rather buy a firearm from a professional, knowledgeable dealer with a gruff attitude than a polite smooth talking idiot that doesn't know his ( ) * ( ) from a hole in the wall when you ask him a question about a firearm. 

They don't suffer idiots lightly, but they are the Brady Bunch (the 60's TV show, not the communist anti-gunners) compared to a clown in Norfolk named Ron Hess!

Yep, that's a tough business, they are honest and  have good low retail prices.  The older guy, probably the owner, seems to have a photographic memory for prices, and can tell you what something is worth if you see it at another booth, which is useful sometimes.  Both of them seem knowledgable and open about pluses and minuses on a given weapon, or its condition.  I think they have to do a fairly high volume to make money at their prices, and its interesting to see their used stuff.   I usually check their prices before I'll buy anything at another booth, just to get an idea of what retail is on a given weapon.

I've bought several guns from them.  Each time I walk away wanting to tell the tat'd guy to eat a d**k and promise myself I won't buy another one.

Next show comes around and again they are $50/cheaper than anybody else.  So I suck my pride up a little, and once again leave wanting to tell the guy I wish he would get hit by a car.

Now that's funny right there!  I felt the same way when I bought a pistol from them.  I've been around firearms most of my life and don't handle them carelessly nor am I an idiot when it comes to knowing what I'm looking at.  They treated me like I was both...

Didn't see them at the VB show today.  Wonder if they weren't invited or declined the invitation...

I guess I needed to see the "Soup Nazi" to make myself feel normal again...:?
