I just wanted to give a hearty recommendation for Volunteer Firearms in Vonore.
I am new to TN and was looking to pick up some AR lowers. I stopped into Volunteer and met Bob who runs the shop. He was super nice and welcoming, even to a new face. Unfortunately, they had just run out of stock for the model I was looking for so I ended up buying them online from Primary Arms.
After the purchase, Bob was super quick to email his FFL to PA per their instructions and then he called me right away when they got delivered. It seemed near impossible back home to find a shop that would check their email and communicate clearly.
When I showed up to the shop there was no wait and the lowers were ready to go. Transfer cost was very reasonable compared to some other shops that I called.
