My favorite gun store and outfitter. I drive for over an hour and pass several other stores including a large outfitter in my town to shop there. Employees are always courteous and accommodating. M...ike at the gun counter has always been very informative and has sold me several guns over time. I stop there most every time I make a trip to Little Rock. See More

Do not buy banded waders. They leaked right away and when tested they said manufacturers defect for sure. Couldn't give me a replacement until next year. Which the warranty would be void by then and i...t's the middle of duck season right now. nor could banded when I called them. Ft Thompson did offer me a refund which I felt was right but I still got charged 25 bucks which really sucks since I have nothing for it.. I think Ft Thompson should be getting with banded about all these defects so the consumer isn't getting stuck paying this $25 fee. Thanks for the refund but still would rather have the whole refund so I could easily go purchase another pair of waders. See More

I have been doing business with this store for about 20 years, I cannot even add up the money myself, my family, and my friends I recommended this store to have spent. Due to the "new" floor manager ...I will not be doing business with you anymore. See More

Knowledgeable and friendly employees. I brought in a rifle/scope to have it bore sighted. The gentlemen with the great big mustache was beyond helpful. I felt he went above and beyond the call of dut...y getting me taken care of. I will continue to spend my money with Ft Thompson’s! See More

This is the worst products I've ever used. Bought a pair of their own brand waders and they leaked right out of the box. I took them back to replace and got another pair. Again leaked right out of the... box. Took that pair back and same results. When you ask them to test the new pair in the tank before you leave with them they refuse but when you bring them back it's $30 to replace every time. The last pair I took back they immediately said they didn't have my size anymore and then told me they didn't leak when I know for a fact they do. The man testing them tried to tell me it's just sweat and or condensation but for some reason it's only in one spot on my shins and crotch area not to mention the strapped was cut halfway. I'll never buy another thing from that store again and will at every chance discourage anyone else as well. Sad when the excuse they give you is we are losing money on these waders so instead of them losing they make the customer pay. They won't even stand behind their own product. See More

Purchased a firearm from them at a good price, unfortunately it was the last one in stock and they had to sell me the display. I had some reservations about this at first but they threw in a box of a...mmo and a t-shirt for the misses to help keep me out of the dog house when I got home. Thats how you get a customer for life! See More

They shouldn't sell waders!!! You spend $380 on a brand new pair of waders a month ago and they give you a 1 year warranty with them! What they don't tell you is they test them their selves so they ca...n tell you, no sorry they do t have a leak while you stand there with wet pants on. How about you put them on and stand in the water and you will see for yourself. I was told that I would have to call the manufacturer directly. They don't stand behind their products. Lost my business See More

I've been to Fort Thompson twice. Each time to talk about buying a semi-auto and this would be my first. So I had questions. I was treated poorly. Because I'm a woman they weren't helpful. The first t...ime, I was directed to buy low recoil bullets for my .38 instead of buying a gun. I left there with a bad feeling that because was a woman they didn't want to deal with me. Oh they seemed nice but I've talked to other women and they say the same thing. Then I gave them another chance thinking it was my imagination. Boy was I wrong , it was worse. This guy was too busy. I tried to ask questions and he just wanted to order the gun I asked about. I felt completely dejected. He wasn't listening and after that experience I will never go back. The first time, I did walk around in the store and look at their merchandise. For that part it was great. Good selection of any kind of thing you are looking for. But if a woman wants to buy a gun, don't go there! Very chauvinistic! I ended up buying a gun from Bullseye Guns and Ammo and I was treated with respect and no question I asked went unanswered and was answered in a positive way and not as if I was dumb for asking. And I ended up buying a gun different from what I asked about at Fort Thompson because it met my needs better. Bullseye took the time to learn my needs and listened to my concerns. Fort Thompson should learn respect for women, after all we are major consumer in the gun market!! See More

They took the time to make sure I got the rifle I wanted and were patient with me while I shouldered probably 2 dozen different fire arms. They never got frustrated or gave an attitude. When I purchas...ed the rifle and scope they mounted it for me and made sure that it worked for me and my eyes. Definitely recommended to anyone who wants quality service and quality products.

I bought a handgun from Academy and one from Fort Thompson this week and the difference was amazing. The guy's at Fort Thompson are extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. It took an hour at Academy... to complete my gun buying process but only took about 15 mins at Fort Thompson because they knew what to do with a military member with an out of state license and orders. I will not be giving my firearm/ammo business to anyone else, y'all have another loyal customer! See More

In a world full of people hurt by words who whine and complain incessantly its nice to have an old school family owned store doing things the old school way. Service is outstanding, prices are great, ...and the guys that work here are awesome. See More

Worst service ever. I asked about a specific gun and was told that it wouldn't even be available to look at for 8 months to 1 year! I was blown away! So I left frustrated. When I got in my truck I g...ot on the gun makers website and called them! They were happy to hear from me and told me they could have that gun to the shop in 6-8 weeks! I thought that was a little more like it. I ended up getting it in 4 weeks. Gun was awesome service SUCKED! I don't know how they're even in business with that kind of service. See More

I love this place. They have the most helpful staff and helpful salespeople they dont mind helping you find what you need. The guys who sell firearms will help you decide what you need if you tell the...m what you want it for, hunting, protection sport etc. They dont treat you like your dumb because your a woman.

So my husband and I bought some goods in this store yesterday and paid with a debit card. This is not the first time that we shopped in this store, but I am not sure that I will be back any time soon....

Unfortunately, one item purchased did not meet the requirements we were looking for, so we returned it today.

The manager processed the transaction, but would not refund us cash. Instead, he said that he had to refund it back on the debit card. I understand that. However, I do have a problem with this. The debit card transaction cleared my account immediately. However, the money refunded will be deposited in the checking account within 3-5 business days. This means that someone is getting to use my money interest free.

My husband & I both like Ft. Thompson. Their customer service is great & everyone is very friendly & helpful, but if I don't get my money immediately upon a refund & I am not willing to let someone else use free money. If the funds were refunded immediately, we would have probably spend it in the store the same day, but since they were not, not sure when I will be back. Despite my experience, I would recommend this place. Just make sure that you don't need to return anything.
