Default Anyone familiar with FF Firearms Montebello?

Reviews on Google are good. Anybody here do a PPT transaction with them?

Is it a busy shop? PPT's smooth and quick, or PITA?

Appreciate any info, thanks.

Yes, Saad, is AWESOME! It is the ONLY fire arms shop I frequent now. Forget big box stores and even some other places (shall not name them).

I go, Saad (Todd) greets me by name, his employees are cool and he has cool stuff!

Still doesn't do consignment and he told me he is working on it. Has a gunsmith shop on site, but is slow. It definitely has a "mom and pop" feel to it.

Saad will shoot the crap with you, but like anyone, he will loose interest if one keeps saying the same thing.

My M.O. is:
go in, greet him, tell him what I want, he does it... BS a bit, laughs, offers me drinks and even food... always decline, and leave.

Parking can suck, but where doesn't it?

Now the fees... SUPER reasonable! I have done interfamily transfers there, NOOOOO problem (my dad is from AZ) (charges about $100 [includes DROS]), have done PPT (IIRC, ~$25), NOOOO problems... have has ammo shipped to him (he is a PSA approved shop) (charges me about $25 plus tax [that's a CA thing]), NOOOO problemsssss!

All his DROS are digitally filled out, and you can pay on his website. Offers 30 day layaway (will work with you if you are a frequent customer), can order from his website and just pick up.

Shop does get busy and he is closed on Monday's.

One of the coolest Lebanese I have met, but can be a jerk sometimes, but that's all of us!

Overall I woul drate him a 8.5 or 9 out of 10 (only because he does get a bit scattered brain but he does have a lot going on)....
