Wonderful. We purchased my first gun today. The first employee we worked with seemed very unimpressed about us at first, however warmed up quickly. While I was going through the background check, four different employees came up and asked if I had been helped. The staff seemed to want to be there and honestly help you get what you needed. We will be going back, loved this store.

Travis the gunsmith has worked on 3 of my firearms and did a great job on all. First time speaking with him for almost 2 hrs, he's extremely knowledgeable on firearms and hunting. The manager and the front desk folks were great and pleasant as well. I recommend Travis to all my buddies.

My wife and I have purchased many firearms and accessories from Diamondback and could not be happier with service that we have received with each of our visits. All the employees, salesmen, gunsmith, cashiers, and managers are AWESOME to work with, and highly professional. We highly recommend Diamond for all your shooting needs.
