Honolulu Firearms is not Magnum Firearms anymore.
I can say with certitude that anyone who was a jerk, is now long gone. And it was more than just one person.
I agree with what KK said about them turning it around from being the most jerk-ass store on Oahu, to probably one of the best.
I have had nothing but top service from them recently.
The people there now are great. It is bad that they inherited the B.S. from a past era, and it will take some time for them to recover from that bad press.
As for the other stores, nothing they can do would bother me as much as what Art-titude I experienced at Magnum, so I am cool with all the other stores (so far).
Magnum needed a regime change, and it was done in a manner not voluntarily for the previous owner, but for the better.
Let's not forget the forest for the trees.
EVERYONE who is a responsible firearm owner should (unless I am missing something) want to grow the number of responsible and properly trained firearms owners in America, whether store owners, or customers. That also goes for firearms forums. Unless you are debating a specific point (and keeping to debating the points, not the persons), there is no need to cause animosity amongst our community. The mainstream media is working hard to do that to us already, so there is little need for us to help that agenda along. I should not need to say this, but maybe a reminder is timely here lest we forget the larger picture.
