2012 at about 5:15 PM my friend Eve Durand went to the First Stop Guns in Rapid City, SD (605-341-5211) to buy a used revolver she saw there on a previous visit. Three male employees told her the gun was already sold and if she wanted that model she would have to buy a new one for $220 more. She called me to borrow the extra money and when I got in the shop, after about 20 seconds from entering, I saw the gun she asked for right there in the display case in plain sight.
All three male employees deliberately lied to her and tried to cheat her by telling her it was already sold a few days previous,and saying she would have to buy the brand new one if she wanted it. KNOWING it was right there in the display case. The main employee refused to give his name, but his initials on the receipt are HC. The receipt is number 26529. Had I not showed up and recognized their deception she would have been cheated out of $220.
I brought this to a manager's attention ( Mark Blote ) the next day via email and a phone conversation, and nothing was done after one week. I suggested they just give her a couple of boxes of ammo, an apology, and dock the cost spread out over the three employee's pay. Nothing being answered suggests they were encouraged by management to do this to new female shooters who are trusting in their experise.
She and I both are willing to testify to this and it is also provable on their video surveilance. Evil wins when good people do nothing.
