Salt Dog LLC...

Post by ufgators68 on Mon Jun 18, 2012 6:49 am

Any of y'all heard of these guys?

Salt Dog - Facebook Salt Dog Website

They are out of Starkville and they are supposed to be mostly former military personnel.

We are a group of recognized shooters and industry experts. U.S. Marine Corps infantrymen, product specialists, competent machinists, and recognized gunsmiths. We shoot. We know. Not just another group of unknown "trigger pullers". So when you work with us, you know you're getting the most up-to-date and dependable service, knowledge and quality.​

They run weekly deals on their Facebook page and if they're legit, I wouldn't mind supporting a somewhat local business.

His comments on their Facebook page are derogatory towards people who he deems "gear queers" (his words not mine) or those not worthy of his products. Scroll through a few for yourself.

I find it odd he demeans a "gear queer" as with any firearms related shop you make your living off these guys. I also like the term "gear whore" better than his term. Also his price on that blackout is high as hell. It better aim for me for that price. To be that cocky he dam sure better be able to back it up. I'd be afraid he'd cuss me out for trying to negotiate price or most likely not worthy of his product.

Yes he can shoot and he is a good guy. It's funny when people take things out of context and blow it out of proportion. I don't know if he could out shoot Alton since I don't know how he shoots, but I know he can shoot. he should be chiming in here soon.

Thanks Fugan601 and Lt.Dan.
Yeah, I'm a nice guy.
But not when you take my stuff out of context.
I don't care about who's best at punching paper. I know 10 yr old kids in CO training for the Olympics who can do that. And good on 'em too. Proud of those kids!
And if you prefer "whore" to "queer", that's fine too. It takes all kinds of people to make the world go 'round.
But don't start bad mouthing me or my customers/friends when you don't know me.
"Gear queer" is an infantry thing. And if you've never served in an infantry unit, then I suggest you let it be.
Now...back to business.
All my stuff is 10% over whatever my cost is. I'll show you invoices. I don't have a problem with negotiating either. But I let you make money at your job, so I expect the same when you talk to me about my job. Every rifle and pistol that I build comes with free ammo too. Bet ya BPS doesn't give you that.
AND any production firearm that I order for you is backed by a 100% lifetime replacement warranty. I know you don't get that anywhere else.
You tell me where else you can go and have a custom bolt gun made for under $2000, a custom 1911 made for less than $1500 or any caliber AR built that will pass USMC inspection and work every time with high grade parts for a price ranging from $800-3000?
Oh and lets not forget that the next time you want custom ammo made SPECIFICALLY for your rifle next hunting season, there aren't too many people that will take your rifle and develop the best load for it, make you 100 rounds and give you the target they sighted it in on for under $300.
So before you start judging and badmouthing someone, especially a combat veteran, you should at least meet them first....or be capable of doing all this "by hand" work yourself.
That is all. Carry on.

Never take our quotes out of context again. And you do not have the written permission to use our quotes either.
I'll never treat customers in the manner that you suggest. I have more honor and dignity than that.
Furthermore, you're showing that you like to fan the flames by quoting our posts here.
For instance: 1) have you looked at high-end .300 blackouts lately? Do I need to post links to pages with MSRP's?
2) while every shooter keeps a data book, real shooters do not rely on a pre-printed card to know how to dope their scopes/sights for environmental factors.
my only question is if you've ever served in an infantry unit, specifically a unit made of DM's or S-S's. And peep sight holes dont effect the # of clicks you adjust
your iron sights. Proper sight alignment/picture does. Again, review your basic marksmanship principles.
3) your lack of history knowledge from WW2 where we were not invaded because the Japanese knew that every American owned a rifle. This post was done in
connection to driving ammo business. next time, show the whole post.
4) gear queers like to think that having all the latest gadgets and accessories makes you a badass or, God forbid, a better shooter. Tell that to every person who ever
won the Wimbledon Cup using a mil-spec rifle. pretty damn sure you wouldnt walk up to Carlos Hatchcock, if he were still alive, and tell him that he can't shoot
because he doesn't have a $6000 rig, the right brand scope or the current popular sponsors. Real shooters dont need that stuff. And we don't like to flaunt it
either. Our guns and our abilities do that talking.
5) we do not believe in being politically correct here at our company. That problem is how the country got to where it is now. If this offends you, please, for
everyone's sake, feel free to discontinue following this thread, our facebook page and our commercial website.

Working on the 5.7 stuff. Kinda new for us.
The 7.62x39 is harder to come by because we can't find brass for it. And we don't use the imported steel stuff for reloading.

You charge 10% over price for products is that the assembly fees or is that extra? What about if a donor action is used?

No I haven't checked MSRP for a 300 blackout. My upper was under 400 so yes $2100 sounded high.

Like I asked your friends is he a nice guy and we just caught the tail end of a rant. Facebook only showed what I quoted. Which I've removed now. I don't mind anybody making money at their job. I wouldn't do it for 10%. I'd do my job for 10% of the disposables I use but not making bullets. Thats my least favorite thing to do besides the actual picking up of the brass. Once I've got a good load worked up though I'll make a ton and hope to not have to make them again for a few years. I haven't made 270 bullets for deer hunting in 4 years. At the rate I shoot that gun it'll be a LONG time before I have to do it again.
I know my history, maybe not my peep sights.

No one said you had to be politically correct but you'll sell more if you limit the derogatory comments on your page. I have never met you before so first impressions for a new customer are important. Your facebook page makes you seem angry. Rather than telling someone what custom means say tell me what you'd like built and I'll work you up a price. What I am saying is dealers make their money off people like me buying things we don't need. I want a 338 lapua. I don't need it. I already have a perfectly fine shooting FN308. I want a CZ shadow and a STI limited gun. I have a perfectly functionable Glock 35. I don't need either one. I am a bit of a self proclaimed gear whore I'll probably never be able to shoot as good as the rifle I want built or the one I already have. I like to think I am getting better with my pistol but most likely last match had less people there.

Now see that's what I'm looking for. Good guys with their head on straight. I'm chalking this one up to bad communication through a website. You know what I'm talking about. (ie sarcasm lost in a text message)
Anyway, let's just mend this thing and push forward. No need for arguments over stupid stuff.
Oh. To answer a suggestion you made, I like it. And I tried to do that "let's discuss ur build" idea in my website under the "products" tab. It's the last line in each of the paragraphs about the guns.
Let me know if you think it needs to be redone. I'm always open to reasonable suggestions that help.
Friends?

More answers:
1) 10% is on top of any hard parts I have to buy.
2) Labor is set by an hourly fee or per job basis depending on what it is.
3). Donor rifles question is answered on the website. But yes, donor receivers are welcomed and that simply cuts that much of the cost out for you.

Cool. Like I said I don't know you nor had ever met you. Your facebook page just made you seem pissed. The original poster didn't link to your website it was just 2 links to the facebook page. I shouldn't have made a comment on shooting ability for that I'm sorry.

When I get home I'll check out your actual page. Its filtered here at work. The web page is probably a better representation than FB. When I first scrolled down it only showed those I saw. Having a lets discuss your build thing is a great Idea. My last comments are only my thoughts to help out your buisiness. Friends it is.

As an Infantryman myself I realize I am far to grumpy to be in any customer based business. I know my temperament will lead to inappropriate outbursts so I choose to remain in a profession where I can shoot my mouth off in a normal environment without damaging my customer base.

Good luck to you. Being a service member does not give free license to being rude. I have a hard time with this too, so I try to keep to myself, although I have managed to shine my rear a disproportionate number of times. If you have a good product for a price people are willing to pay it will sell. You can't dog cuss someone into thinking otherwise.

No dog cussing here.
And I believe that, when products start going out and staying here in MS, my quality and pricing will speak for themselves. I'm willing to work with people on prices in order for that to happen.

I've played around with it.
But dadgum that's tedious...even for me and my machinists.
Not very cost effective for me right now until I can get metal at cheaper prices. HA! That might be a pipe dream in itself.
You looking for some REALLY custom bullets?

Another quick note of interest:

It may be the downfall of me in the long run but I refuse to be like other gun stores that talk you into buying stuff you don't need. We hold a firm grasp on the idea of "the right equipment for the right job" and nothing more.

And did anyone have a chance to look at the website (www.saltdogllc.com) and see if the line "contact us to discuss your build" under the services tab sufficed for what we were talking about yesterday?

Thanks gents.
(oh and I posted new weekly deals earlier today both on facebook and our website just in case anyone is interested)

Wise words from nothing.

I used to run this radio ad for DUI's in the Jackson area. I thought it was pretty funny myself.
DUI Radio Ad
It got virtually zero response. They only people that called were veterans that "got it." And it taught me something: apparently people that are accused of a DUI do, in fact, want a hug. Nevermind the fact that I'm going to fight it like hell, and go nuts trying to beat it. I lose a lot of business to lawyers who are better salesmen. I have found that the same way of thinking and communicating that kept you alive in combat does not sell goods and services to the general public (although it should, but there is nothing we can do about it).

But I hope you and your business model are successful. Good luck to you Marine.

Here is the link, http://www.saltdogllc.com/#!home/mainPage I didn't click any of your other posted links through this thread, just the latest in your quote. You somehow have a percentage sign in the link that kicks the url out to a generic ISP search page.

The contact us to discuss your build is there, under each build category.

Good luck to you. Being a service member does not give free license to being rude. I have a hard time with this too, so I try to keep to myself, although I have managed to shine my rear a disproportionate number of times. If you have a good product for a price people are willing to pay it will sell. You can't dog cuss someone into thinking otherwise.
Wise words from nothing.

I used to run this radio ad for DUI's in the Jackson area. I thought it was pretty funny myself.
DUI Radio Ad
It got virtually zero response. They only people that called were veterans that "got it." And it taught me something: apparently people that are accused of a DUI do, in fact, want a hug. Nevermind the fact that I'm going to fight it like hell, and go nuts trying to beat it. I lose a lot of business to lawyers who are better salesmen. I have found that the same way of thinking and communicating that kept you alive in combat does not sell goods and services to the general public (although it should, but there is nothing we can do about it).

But I hope you and your business model are successful. Good luck to you Marine.


Thanks. I'm well on my way to understanding that concept. The problem is that I don't want to be just like any other gun store. That's not what we're about. The model is to cater to discriminating customers that want performance with no compromises. Afterall, if you're just after any old gun, then there's always BPS, etc. That being said, we do offer everyday production guns from the big manufacturers on a special order basis. Quite honestly, I'd say you're hard pressed to find better deals -- ESPECIALLY when I'm the only one that's offering the 100% lifetime replacement warranty.
Nevertheless, if you or anyone else ever needs anything, I hope you'll give us a shot to earn your business. Just like my page says, you're family not just another number and when you're in, you're in.

It may be the downfall of me in the long run but I refuse to be like other gun stores that talk you into buying stuff you don't need. We hold a firm grasp on the idea of "the right equipment for the right job" and nothing more.

And did anyone have a chance to look at the website (www.saltdogllc.com) and see if the line "contact us to discuss your build" under the services tab sufficed for what we were talking about yesterday?

Thanks gents.
(oh and I posted new weekly deals earlier today both on facebook and our website just in case anyone is interested)

Here is the link, http://www.saltdogllc.com/#!home/mainPage I didn't click any of your other posted links through this thread, just the latest in your quote. You somehow have a percentage sign in the link that kicks the url out to a generic ISP search page.

The contact us to discuss your build is there, under each build category.

I'm not quite sure what you're talking about here as I'm not a computer or website genius. However, from what I can tell, and from trying to access the website from various computers and IP addresses, I don't see any problem. Can you elaborate? Thanks.

In the text of yours I quoted, the linked url is "http://www.saltdogllc.com%29/" instead of whatever you meant it to be. If you click THAT link, you get a search page, or error, depending on your ISP. I only mentioned it because there was at least one other post that said something about problems seeing your site.

I just went through your posts, and the other times it was linked, it is correct without the garbage letters. When reading the thread for the first time, I simply clicked on the last time I had seen it linked.

By the way, when I first started reading this thread, it looked like it may turn out ugly, I'm glad it didn't.

Got it. I think there must have been a problem with how the link was posted here.
For anyone else's future reference, you should enter www dot saltdogllc dot com and it should work just fine.

I'm glad it didn't turn ugly, as well.
I'm not a confrontational guy but will when pushed.
In the end, it was bad communication that was resolved by both parties taking the high road.
We should always strive to do just that.

All I can say is that I've been VERY impressed with Mr. Stewart's customer service! He's been very helpful in getting an AR lower for me, and has been very patient as I kept changing my mind and altering plans (originally contacted him regarding ordering a Savage Hog Hunter for me which then transformed into him finding an AR lower for me).

Its very refreshing, given that I practically have to fight to get anyone to talk to me at some of the local gun stores...

Early review

Post by lima4specter on Fri Sep 07, 2012 10:20 pm

This was posted by TankerHC over in the feedback thread.
Wanted to pass it along. He's got a pic of the gun up too. Or you can see it on my website.

TankerHC wrote:Back in June lima4specter posted that he could build anyone a custom 1911 for under $1500. I was skeptical, but decided to give him my business to see what he could do. I wont pick up the gun until Friday, but figured this is still a good time to post this. Ill do the range report after I get it to the range and post that elsewhere. So this is my experience so far.

Sometime shortly after June 22nd, I contacted lima4specter, made the deal and sent the money, and it was under $1500 like he said.

The next day I requested a breakdown of parts, I had them the following morning and after going over them, there is no way if I would have tried to do this myself for what he is building, could I have even come close, especially given the work putting it together.

He kept me informed every step of the way, letting me know where he was in the build, when the parts came in, checking on grips, finish, and sights before doing them.

Every time I sent an email requesting status, I received a detailed status within hours.

I offered to pick it up in Starkville, on my way home, he insisted on bringing it to me. I certainly have no problem with that.

He sent me a picture of the finished product yesterday and I have to say I am please as all get out. Cant wait to get my hands on it.

Quality of parts - Excellent
Customer Service - Excellent
Cost (Way below what you would pay for a similar 1911 anywhere else) - excellent.

I WILL be doing business with him again.
