    My own opinion, but I think Tenda is overall a pretty decent business. Their selection of ammo in particular is far more diverse than most other places. Their firearms selection is decent and in both cases their pricing is not only competitive, is oftentimes the standard for which I compare everything else.

    That said, it does seem like much of the consternation revolves around the online ordering turnaround time, inventory controls and response time. I have not ordered online for mail from them before nor have I ordered any restricted firearms from them - whether before or after the handgun freeze announcement, so I am not in a position to comment on that facet of the business. However, during the lockdowns I did order quite a bit and picked up and never had an issue.

    I would dare say due to the selection and the pricing, Tenda probably generates a lot more in store and online traffic than many other retailers, and perhaps that is where they need to focus on increasing staffing going forward, but again, I don't have any first hand experience with this. My local experience at Tenda has always been pretty positive.
    I feel like you're generally an agreeable person and perhaps your standards for services are a bit low. I run a business and I know firsthand how important it is to be polite to the staff and to be a pleasant person. So when my polite and friendly demeanor is not reciprocated by the people I'm giving my money to, I take my business elsewhere. I feel that if more people were of this mindset, the overall demeanor of the gun store staff would greatly improve. Just my $0.02

My desire to deal with abrasive people (and financially enable their bad behavior) is practically nonexistent at this point. If the 2 people I like aren't there, I simply walk out and go to another gun store. Luckily, there are 4 in my area. Considering that since getting my PAL, I've spent almost 20 k, that is a lot of money to lose just because your sales person can't manage to be polite to the customer.
    Well, yeah, sure. I agree. I’m not sure if my post suggested that I go to gun stores to make friends. To be clear, I don’t! ��
    I never really cared that much so it never affected my spending. It is (or was) just a gun store thing…
