Default Worst hunting store out there.

What store do you think is the worst out there as far as hunting stuff goes.
Worst service worst selection worst employs worst price worst brands.

For me it is gander mountain mainly due to price and service the local archary shop mounted by bow sight wrong and cost me a deer. They never seem to get close to the right price. The guys at the gun desk normaly do not seem to want to help anyone.
A close second is walmart. Seems there selection of gun stuff and even hunting/fishing stuff is near non. They never have someone there that can help though there cheap normaly it is cheap chinese made crap.

Well i can't really give an educated vote as to the "worst" out there, I have only used a local shop near me in New Jersey for my purchases and services. I have bought some things from Cabellas "on-line" or some great sale items from Dicks Sporting goods, but never had to deal with any live people. But i will tell you that the local "little guy" sporting goods store I use has been one of the BEST.
Simon Peter Sporting Goods in Newton NJ for those of you who want quality products, both new and used guns and bows, fair prices equal to the "chain" stores, and service from the employees that cant be matched. Everyone there is knowedgable in one thing or another, and if you ask for help, you will be sure to get the right advice.
So i'll continue to shop and maintain my equipment there, and hopefully i never have to vote "THE WORST" store out there.

Tim I think you've made 3 or 4 posts in the last week or so discussing how TERRIBLE Gander Mt. is.

It's really a simple fix:

A) STOP going there.
B) Shop Online
C) Call Gander Mt. Home Office and complain
