I have purchased several firearms from RK Guns. Although I am very happy with the guns I purchased, my only complaint is the level of service I received. I will be totally honest, the biggest problem was that I was unaware of all the rules surrounding the purchase of my guns. I suppose I should have researched the gun laws in Illinois thoroughly prior to my purchase. My purchasing experience in Illinois could be entirely different than your gun buying experience in another state because each state has its own set of gun laws. I will say that my first purchase at Rk Guns went smoothly until I had to go to my local Rural King store to do the paperwork. The line was long, the gun counter was understaffed, and it was not a great experience. When it was time to fill out the paperwork, my driver’s license home address and my FOID card home address did not match up because I had recently moved. So guess what happened next? Nothing. That session was over. I had to leave. I could not move forward with paperwork until my driver’s license home address matched my FOID card home address. To say the least, I was not happy. I wish RK Guns would have given me clear instructions telling me EXACTLY what I would need to have when picking up my gun.
