Large, varied selection. Prices are not typically competitive, (especially compared to Internet vendors), unless you catch them during a big sale. Friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff.
I have heard a lot of criticism about Hoffy's, but in the grand scheme of things, they do a good job. They sure do sell a lot of Ruger, and they have a habit of winding up Ruger's #1 Dealer of the Year.
Their salesmen are knowledgeable and helpful, and that helps a lot when you do get to talk to one. I have never been treated discourteously, although they are very, very busy. Hoffman's didn't get to be the size they are by accident. They may not be the only place to shop, but they should definitely be on your list.
I always have a good experience when i walk through the door
Wow! I went there for the first time this week and I thought the employees were terrific! Being a newbie to guns(pistols anyway) and a woman to boot, I was afraid that they would treat me like I was stupid but they were wonderful. Answered my ton of questions, patiently, showed me various pistols for my needs without being too pushy and were supportive. I will be taking my permit class there in a few weeks. Love that you can try out pistols on their firing range for $10 for 10 shots. Also a neighbor found some old ammo in her basement that her late husband had left years ago. she didn't know what to do with it so she took it to Hoffmans and they took it and disposed of it for her, no problem. Price wise they seem average to other places I have looked around.
At any rate, customer service was wonderful and very friendly. I purchased some range time for hubby, $25/hour seems very fair to me. They were also very kind to my 3 children, who were gawking at the taxidermy heads all over the store. We got a lot of kind smiles and "Hello there!" from the staff. In what could have been a very uncomfortable, testosterone soaked encounter, I left a happy customer.
Found what I was looking for at a good price. Nice sales person took a fair amount of time to show me several models. Very happy with the purchase.
I love Hoffman's! Everyone is very knowledgeable and helpful.
I have purchased a dozen or so guns from them both new and used. I have always found the staff to be helpful and knowledgable.
Went there in early October to shoot a few types of 9mm handguns before making my final purchase decision and I was a bit concerned due to some to the reviews about their customer service.
