Mad house at work today
« on: December 19, 2012, 06:29:53 PM »
So, i work at Sportsman's Warehouse in puyallup and got a phone call today asking if i wanted som OT. i was like " does a bear **** in the woods? heck yeah!" Well, when i got up there it was nothing less than absolute madness over AR's, Accesories, mags, and ammo. We sold out of every AR we had in stock and have a dwindling supply of .23 and 5.56 ammo. Its absolutly crazy. Then to top it all of we have to have these customers that get livid pissed or upset when we tell them sorry we are sold out. We cant just have a never ending supply of this sitting in back stock.  :bash: Just a little rant here. Im stepping down from my box now.

Sportsmans warehouse is always sold out of everything...Worst stocking/re-supply system in any retail store I have ever been in.  Every time I go there, I have to drive the extra 40 minutes to Cabela's to get what I want because sportsmans is out!

I wasnt there to witness it, but a friend of mine told me that 30rd AR mags were sold out at Lacey Cabela's.. This summer I could have bought as many AR USGI 30rd mags as I wanted for $5 bucks a piece.. Too bad I didnt buy as many as I could have. If it keeps going this way, I might be sitting on $10k worth of ammo and mags soon.

Yep, Only now it's called Sportsmans wholesale...according to the employees, the only thing that changed was the name, still the same products, same employees, same person in charge of making sure all the shelves are empty and nothing you need in stock.

That company is Wholesale Sports out of Canada.  They are a completely different entity.  That store was originally owned by Sportsman's Warehouse, but was sold, along with all the other Sportsman's stores in WA,  to UFA Holding from Calgary, Canada in March of 2009.

Sportsman's Warehouse is based in Midvale, Utah.

Correct.  Same everything, except owner.  So might was well be the same name.  All employees I talk to say nothing has changed except the name on the building.  I was hoping when sportsmans warehouse went under here, that the new company would keep the shelves stocked better, but a few years later, and it still sucks!!!

It has gotten insanely busy at the safe store. I have people non-stop calling and customers coming in too get safes. I tried all day to get out of work for a few minutes to go down to the local gun store in Enumclaw to look for pmags. When I finally made it down there, I scored four 30 rounders, windowed with magpul ranger floor plates for $20 a piece.

Surplus Ammo and arms in Lakewood has thousands of pmags.

Surplus Ammo and arms in Lakewood has thousands of pmags.

I wouldn't bet on that. I stopped by out of curiosity this morning since it was on my way home. It was 1030, they opened at 1000. Almost all of the "assault" weapons were sold already, probably 20 people in line for background checks, and ammo shelves were nearly bare of the common high demand calibers.

I'm sitting on my 16 and 30 round Glock 19 magazines.  Figure in a few months I should be able to sell 2 or 3 of them and have enough money to buy another pistol.

The manager straight out told me wednesday morning that they have thousands of them. So if you need them, go in there.

Cool. Are they still selling them at normal price? I'm torn on what to think of all the price gouging. It's simply good business practice to get the most money for your product but it just leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

I went to Wholesale Sports in Silverdale, WA today and the place was packed. AR's, pistols, and ammo selling like latte's at Starbucks on a cold day. There were plenty of pistols still available, but the shotguns, rifles, and AR's were very thin.

Got some extra magazines for my 1911 .45 ACP

Perhaps that's guilt or regret about not buying them back when they were cheaper and you had that feeling that you should. Just imagine how you'll feel if the ban takes effect and you wind up not being able to find them at all.

 
I have no problem with them marking their products up. I would.  Supply and demand, baby.
