A-1 is the renal place I alway go. Jason and his team provide incredible service when I need to rent special equipment providing clear instruction and help loading so we can get back on the job! As we do more frequent business with A-1 they become like a family and the services exceeds anything in the Cedar Rapids area. Thanks Jason!

I went to A-1 to buy a revolver. I’d previously went to a few other gun stores, in Cedar Rapids/ Marion area, that had bad customer service. After a google search I ended up on the A-1 site. I was a little surprised by the rental store and gun store combination but I saw what I wanted on the site so I decided to give it a try. When I went in to the A-1 store, I received a friendly greeting. They asked what they could help me with. I told them what I had saw on the website. I was shown to the gun area. We talked for a little while. At one point the guy I was talking to pointed out the EMS jacket I was wearing and said they couldn’t give a discount on guns themselves but the store appreciated my service and a lot of other things I would be eligible for a discount on (businesses that support fire/ems are a big positive to me). They had the revolver I’d seen on the website, for the price it had said. It was what I wanted so, I bought it. The revolver next to it was a good price, and with the friendly atmosphere, I decided to buy it too. I was very satisfied with the service/ friendly atmosphere. I will be recommending them.
