What The Sportman's Den customers are saying:
"Like others have said before, owner is really nice guy. I dropped by after picking up my LTC last week. I'm completely new to shooting. He was very helpful in answering all my newbie questions and took his time explaining different things to me. He recommended for me to start with a .22 handgun but unfortunately he did not have any in stock. Did not try to pressure me into anything he had on hand. He suggested for me to look online and I could send to his store if I found something for a small fee. I will definitely be back to give him business and show my support." -Jerry
"Went over the same day I got my LTC and picked up a Beretta 92FS. GREAT service, quick and clean, went over everything. He was very helpful with a first time purchase and went over all the paper work and how to fill everything out properly. I'll tell ya, he was a little more expensive than going to FS, but the personal service (and location for me, since I live in Quincy) is well more than worth it. Unless he doesn't have what I want or need, I see no reason to go anywhere else."
"Ron is a great guy. i have been buying fishing gear from him for years. Now that he sells firearms it is a one stop shop. he has sold 3 firearms for me in the last month. he handles all my FFL business. Great guy, great shop and great prices. Most reasonable shop on the south shore."
"I really enjoy the Sportsman's Den. Ron is a great guy who goes the extra mile for his customers."
"Just went to the store today and walked out with a Smith & Wesson Sigma 9mm. Ron was a great guy to talk to and very friendly. has a decent stock of good shape pistols. some really good prices on long guns mostly shotguns. think i saw some remingtons, mossbergs and winchesters. saw a savage arms .22lr rifle for less than $200. very impressive store and pretty damn easy to get to. right outside Boston and pretty damn close to the Braintree Club where i shoot. saw another Sigma .40 that is next on the list. GREAT PRICES and GREAT SERVICE!!!!!!...one last thing...... awesome dog!!!!!"
"I also would like to give a small shout out to The Sportsman's Den in Quincy where I made a Ruger SR9 purchase today.
First off, the price could not be beat hands down. When I went into the store on Sunday I was treated not only with a friendly smile but very respectfully. Those can sometimes be hard to find as a girl looking to purchase firearms. My transaction was delayed by NICS (it was almost expected, they did this to me with my last purchase of a rifle). He felt bad it was the weekend and no one at NICS was available to look into it further that day. 1 1/2 days later he called me back with the good news of a proceed. Now, I work in West Warwick RI until 4:30pm Mon-Fri and the shop hours are only til 6pm. Knowing I would like to come in ASAP to buy the firearm the owner offered to stay open past close to allow me to make the drive after work. Even though I showed up 15 minutes after 6 he was more than helpful, friendly, and even helped me browse for extra's. He was more than willing to stay open until I was satisfied. Those small details are what makes an extraordinary business in my opinion. I would recommend taking a drop by The Sportsman's Den in Quincy MA and supporting the local business if you can."
"I have recently got back into this sport/hobby . I am older and lost touch with regulations and new technology. I have purchased 5 hand guns and 1 22 rifle for my son from Ron. Every time I have been at his shop he has spent the time to answer my questions and or concerns in a friendly manner. I have also noticed he is the same with all of the folks that come in, something I have NOT seen at other shops I have been to. It seems at others, if you do not know what you want quickly , , they get , lets say inpatient. Maybe its just my luck with people. I own a small business and expect the type of service Ron gives , just as my customers expect from me. Thank you Ron , keep it up !"
"Stopped in today to see if Ron could help me out with some sights on my 10/22. I'm building a LTR for appleseed shoots and needed the rear aperature and front sight removed so I could install the Tech-Sights I ordered. After about 45 minutes of tinkering (it was a PITA), he finally got the damn thing off and I'm peeping through a nice new set (at no charge!). I really feel like he went above and beyond for me today, and I won't forget that."
More Happy Customers:
"Really great shop. Ron and his staff treat every customer with respect, whether they are newbies, just browsing, or long-time customers. The prices are very competitive. They have the best price right now on .38 spl ammo.

I've been going to the Sportsmen's Den for three years now. Purchased three rifles and four hand guns there....also did a trade that was very generous towards me. Thanks Ron!!!
I've even brought my boss along too, and he bought five guns and a beautiful Henry Rifle, plus a host of accessories over two years!
Ron and Joe are great guys. They always have time to take your questions, or help tweak a weapon for you without making you feel like a dope. The prices are the best in the state. Ammunition is low... just as good as a New Hampshire shop.
The experience at Ron's place is the best. It is not a shuffle in, buy and get out. You really feel like a valued customer, amongst fellow hobbyists, LEOs and sportsmen. Never an upsell, and always fair when comparing this-to-that.
Keep it local and support the cause. I sometimes go in just to say hi and buy a couple boxes of ammo. It is a place where they know your name and build up a relationship with the customer, and treat you very well. Only gun shop I go to for the last two and half years!
Henry P., Quincy
I get most of my small arms needs from these guys. Ammo for the range and my daily carry options as well as targets and accessories.
We always laugh and joke and have a good time every time I walk in... the shop dog is the sweetest pup around.I'm not much of a fisherman but it looks like they have a lot of great equipment on that side as well.
I'm not good with names... but both guys are well educated in what they are providing you. Check them out, you won't be disappointed.

If you're in the Boston area and are looking to purchase a firearm or fishing equipment, look no further.
I stopped by just to show my friend some guns and noticed that they had the Ruger LCR 9mm in stock. The price they had was literally $50 cheaper than other placed I've called. The owner, Ron (super nice guy), said he purchases the guns wholesale so he's able to get them cheaper than if he were to buy individually from the manufacturer.
I came back a week later and decided to purchase it. I filled out the paperwork, but unfortunately, the NCIS server was acting funky and my background check couldn't go through. This is not the store's fault at all. Ron said the best he could do is call me the next day when the system was back up and then I can pick it up.
The next day at 10am he calls me and tells me I'm all set. I swing by, fill the paperwork again, the NCIS works again, and the gun is mine!
He came from behind the counter and showed me a few IWB holsters that would work well with my new gun. I got a cheap swede holster but it fits my gun and is very comfortable to wear.
It's always a great experience to swing by the Sportman's Den. Very knowledgeable, great prices, great location, will definitely do business with them again.

What a great shop and Ron the owner and his sidekick Joe are the nicest most informative guys around.
As a woman, I read a lot of negative stuff about gun shops and their attitude to women. Not at all the case here. They were welcoming and Ron stated he loves to have women come into the shop. They answered all my questions and then some. They are so knowledgeable. Didn't rush me at all!
I had planned to visit another shop in the area which is a larger gun shop. I had not heard good things about customer service there but wanted to comparison shop.
WELL~~ I ended up just going to the Den and purchasing my first gun as I had just gotten my license. I love the gun and brought a friend there today. She came over an hour away and loved the place and also purchased her first gun. Their prices on guns cannot be beaten! Hats off to a great business! Daisy the pup is a love too!

Ron, the Owner, is a great guy and will answer any questions you have. Being new to the gun scene can be very intimidating. while making my first purchase Ron answered all of my (probably ridiculous) questions without any signs of frustration.
He didn't try to sell me on any gun in general but instead asked me questions on what I was looking to do and things like that. he is competitively priced and has discounted my bill on the occasional large purchase.
Mike S., Charlestown
Been shopping in here for few years, one of the best around. Ron/Joe are friendly, would answer any questions along with their great after-sale services. Great selection, pricing is one of the honest/reasonable you may find compare with all others around. Remember, guns are 99.99% non-refundable so you need a shop with great advices/heart.
Chi T., Braintree
This is the only place to go on the South Shore. Ron is a great guy any knows his stuff. I shop here for the guns and ammo but the place was originally set up as a bait and tackle shop.
I had a problem with my Bushmaster and Ron was able to fix it for me in the store. Every time I go in there's always different new and used guns to chose from. Say hi to Daisy when she greets you at the door.
