    Lazy is what I can say about them. Particularly the first sales guy.
    8 or 16” barrel?

And I know the regular price of the gun is around $2,400. So I did not ask anymore and went in for my shooting.

    After I am done with my shooting I wanted to take a closer look of the MPX again so I asked a different sales representative to show me the gun. And I saw the price tag is $2,399....

    I am actually interested in the MPX. So I ask the sales person whether the rifle is Gen 1 or 2. If it is a gen 2 there is a chance that I will buy the firearm right away. But he says he does not know. He asked me back what is the difference between the generations rather than investigate it by asking around and answer me later.

    To summarize I do not expect all sales personal to know everything about guns. But I really feel the customer services is rather poor. Particular the first sales person, who is so lazy that he did not even want to check the price before giving me a quote.

    Note that in both cases the sales are not serving other customers when I ask questions. So being busy on Saturday is no excuse to me.



    That's just target sports man. Alot of guys behind their counter (and other gun shops) have that ego problem. Last time I was in a guy was looking at a 1911 and the clerk was like "you don't want to buy that gun. Buy a Glock". When he finally came over to talk to me and I asked him about it he said the 1911 jams all the time. I told him the 3 I own run flawlessly. His response - let me guess! 9mm. (With that sarcastic tone). One 9 two 45. Anyways everyone's an expert.

    In other news!! If you're looking at the mpx you should also consider the CMMG Guard. The rifle I brought in had the FRT issued so they are good to go. Awesome little rifle and it runs on Glock mags.

    It would appear that the indifferent attitude of the staff remains the same as when I quit that place about ten years ago.

    It's a shame as they have a nice building well positioned to serve shooters from the GTA.

    I gave up going there a while back due to the crappy customer service ( which they should be kissing your a$$ for what they want for stuff) and the mall ninjas that work behind the counter bragging about who's got the most crap on there AR's. Much better stores not that far away.

    Target sports only exists to serve the unlicensed walk ins. The club is a joke.

    I've been a member for almost a year now and have had nothing but good experiences there, anyone I dealt with was helpful and last handgun I bought sales guy had plenty of options out for me to see so that I could make up my mind. everyone always greets when I walk in and I feel welcomed when i'm there.
