I work as a driver :auto: (don't want to say what company) and rarely know where I’m going in a day. I plan ahead for going in to secure areas by having a safe bolted in my car, or leaving it at home if I know I’m going to a secure area at the start of the day. Today I went to hill air force base, I was already in Ogden when I found out I'd be going there. I was hoping beyond hope they might have lock boxes for people like me but no luck. The guard turned me around and told me to come back with out my gun :tank: (he wasn't too happy with me). I have no family or friends in Ogden so I had no place to take my gun! I remembered there was as Impact guns in Ogden. I drove over and found it locked up and they didn't open for and hour, I saw the back door open so I poked my head in and found the manager. I pleaded my case to the store manager Craig ball, and he laughed a little and said he could hold my gun for me in his personal safe. That’s customer service! I’ve never bought a gun from the Ogden store but I’ve bought three from their other store up this direction. But because of the great service I might make the 45 min trip to buy from them! When I returned two hours later to pick it up it was still in the safe in his office, and ready to return to its holster. Thank you again Mr. Ball and all your help, you really did save my butt. :patriot:

I like Impact. They have their pros and cons like any other gun store but they have always treated me right. 8)

I've never actually paid attention to names, but I'm fairly sure Mr. Ball sold me my current duty weapon. He is quite a nice guy and very helpful. I've have had mostly good luck within the store. There are a few as with EVERY gun store I've been into here in Utah, that don't shine me the right way. But I guess its bound to happen. Boy I've got to remember that if I ever go rolling into Hill. I sort of thought they might escort you over to the armorer or something. I know at least that's how its done on some military bases. Bummer, that makes trip planning a bit more difficult. Good to hear you lucked out with Impact though. They seem like good people overall!!!

When I went out to dougway I left my gun at home, but I remember lockers in the gaurd shack, I was hoping the hill would have the same sort of thing.

That is where I got my XD. They always seem to have about 10-15 employees working no matter how busy. Ok, maybe not that many, but when I have gone there I have a new person every five minutes asking if I need help. In fact, I was drooling over their case of 1911's :drool: and an employee asked if he could help me and I said I am just looking and he said why look when you can touch. I rejected the offer because I will then have to convince my wife why I just spent over a $1000 on one gun. :dunno:

I got my silencer from Impact guns. They were very helpful and patient in explaining all the ins-and-outs of doing the NFA tax stamp stuff. No complaints and I wouldn't hesitate to do business with them again.

I kinda like them... only cuse a friend of mine works there, I dont like to talk to anyone in there but him
If it wasnt for that I would have the same ideas and beliefs about them like hedonistic does, well I guess I do and ignore it...

But thats cool that they let you keep your gun there
I wish Hill had an area for people to keep their guns at the gate, thats the main reason I dont cary every day and I dont like it

Its probably not a a bad idea for a business in the area to buy a bank of lockers put up a partition and a camera or two charge a few $ for a day to rent a locker while you are at HAFB. Not the sole purpose of the business of course but think about it say 2.50 X 4 X 200= 2,000 a year for otherwise wasted space and a few lockers. Four people per day for a about a standard fed duty year (200 days) add in a half dozen regulars you rent lockers to for 20 per month 1,440 ....

If I ran a shop in the area of the main gate I'd set it some lockers up.
