New building is awesome! Modern selection of firearms. Trustworthy gunsmith onsite and they have a cadre of trainers for classes. They have a NFA display case that has some collection items as well. Staff was good with questions for concerns with concealed carry and what guns are appropriate.

VERY NEGATIVE EXPERIENCE.... UPDATE scroll to bottom.

It starts well at least. I had a nice experience purchasing a new firearm from David today. At least I believe his name was David, he was a large man. Either way he had amazing customer service and was extremely respectful and quite humorous, which was appreciated. However, my wife and sister in law had a negative experience. There was an employee, a man with glasses and grey facial hair that pushed my in law. She was standing in a isle entertaining our children whom were behaving themselves quite nicely I might add. He had zero manners and physically put a hand on her and moved her aside. I was greatly disappointed of the whole ordeal. Had I known of what happened I would NOT have made my purchase. I learned of what happened only after we left. They were both greatly disappointed with what happened. Sadly I may not be back for future purchases. Furthermore, I have read at least a review or two that have described the same person for the main reason of their dissatisfaction. I would have rated Diamond Back a solid 5 stars had it not been for the man in question. I would like to recommend Diamond Back to all of my friends and family. However, I cannot in good faith do so with my own family being treated in such a manner.

I received a call personally from the owner which included an invite back to Diamond Back. He wanted to extend a personal apology from both himself and the employee in question. Perhaps we may learn that the whole situation was a misunderstanding? I would like to think that is the case. I greatly appreciate the call and will be stopping back in next time I am in the area.

Diamondback shooting sports has a very clean and organized store. Even a beginner gun carrier like myself, could easily find what they are looking for. Also, I would like to add that the customer service of the front desk women was very good. Five stars for diamondback shooting sports.
