Anyone Got an Opinion on this LGS

Recommended Posts

Anyone dealt with Robertson Trading Post in Henderson?  I noticed on GOA, that they have several pistols I'm possibly interested in.  I might be up for a trip to Henderson to check them out.  Are they open to the public or doing online ordering only?  Are they good people to deal with?

I went there once a couple of years ago for a set of hard to find grips they had. You have to ring a bell and tell them why you want in. The place is more of a warehouse than a store. Cluttered and difficult to find stuff in. I think about 95% of their business is internet sales. The folks there were friendly enough. But I suggest you call first and let them know you are coming.

I bought 3 firearms from them. 2 purchases in 2012. Another in 2013. I called ahead and made sure they had them in stock. I told them I was coming from Middle Tn . I got there and rang the bell on the door. They let me in and I was able to look at the gun before I bought it cause it was a used pistol. I paid in cash and did the background check and was out in under 20 minutes. Very good place. It is like a order online type place but you can pick it up in person too. But there weren't many on display.  Kinda like Mid South Shooters Supply. You mainly order online but can still pick it up in person.  Just call ahead to make sure you can still do that.

Yeah, I saw that.  I was really hoping to avoid a transfer fee and I wanted to look at the pistols.  They are surplus.  I'd rather be the one that picks as opposed to paying some one another $25  to hand select out of 10 or so, or for someone to just grab one and send it to me.

I guess times change, and Robertsons with it. I've  bought once from them online and seemed like I was the long lost brother returning home.  Next time...not so much. poor service and acted like not interested in my business.

Last time I found something I wanted from them, I was told I couldn't come to their store, it was online only. Now granted that's been a couple of years back, but that's my experience with them.

Several years ago they used to have a pretty good inventory of some interesting stuff like S&W revolvers. I always wanted to stop by there on my way to Tunica, but my wife was always in a hurry to go gambling.

      Picked up a Stoeger STR-9.
      Got it from local Rural King for $338.42. Came in cardboard box with info, 3 back straps and 3 15 round mags.
      Made in Turkey. Very Glock like inside and shoots as good as a Glock 19 for me.
      I would compare to Glock gen3/4 G19 model.
      Standard 3 dot sights but are metal. Parts do not seem to be interchangeable with Glocks but it does fit Glock 19 holsters.
      Put 500 rounds thru it so far with 2 failures to completely eject fired casings, strong RSA and 3 times slide locked back with rounds still in mag, found out I was riding up on slide lock.
      Sight are POA/POI for me and groups at least as well as any Glock 9mm I have owned.

      Hello folks, I bought this Beretta model 81BB recently exclusively to convert to 32NAA. My goal is to match its grouping abilities to a 32NAA casing loaded with Lehigh 55g all copper defense bullets. For now, this is what the used M81 can do at 30 feet shooting off a wooded 4X4 block as a frame rest. Prior to the rechambering, the average speed of some pretty old PMC 71g FMJ loads were 962 fps out of the 10 round string. The PPU averaged 914 fps.
        To do a conversion on a Beretta Model 81, it simply requires renting the reamer from 4D rentals for a total cost of $47 bucks, adding a model 84 380 magazine and some ammo. No other mods are needed since Beretta uses the same bolt face in their 81/84 model slides. The thick gripped Beretta is a most comfortable gun to shoot. In 32ACP its a real kitten. Stepped up to the new chambering and you know immediately, this aint your grandfathers ACP! The 80g Defensive HP's stepped out at an average of 1067fps in the pictured 10 shot string. I'm looking forward to see what kind of velocities I can generate with the 55g Lehigh copper pills. They should have some serious splash out of the Beretta's 4 3/4" barrel. Then I couldn't help giving the Guardian a go at the 30 foot target with the PMC's. There is some evidence of slight key holeing out of the Guardians shallow rifling but hitting the paper regularly at that range with those sights is still acceptable in my view.  ;D

      Have any of you ever heard of this distributor?  If you go through prices, some are listed as normal, some are shown as on Sale, and are several hundred dollars cheaper than anything I can find online.
      Just trying to find out if this site is legit. Not looking for random opinions, more how to tell if it's a scam.
