    Coho, Yes buy anything you want from this gentleman at the dollar. He is a strait up guy who stands behind everything he sells. Many shooters here have nothing but nice things to say about him, and after meeting him myself, I have to agree. Break-em all. Jeff

    Good Guy, straight shooter. I have not bought from Mike, but have talked about several guns and I would not hesitate to deal with him.

    Mike Battista is a gentleman and honesy businessman. I have sold guns through him and his reputation is one of the best. No worries doing business with Mike.

    I would not hesitate doing business with Mike Battista at the Silver Dollar or with Bob Shultz in NC. If we had more businessmen like these two, we would need many fewer Lawyers.

    Mike is a great guy, straight to do business with, and the kind of dealer everyone wishes to do business with. Two thumbs up. Phil

    I've met Mike a few times. Never bought a gun, but everyone I know that has, could not say a bad thing about him or the deal.

    "The Dollar" is Straight up. Bought a bunch of once-fired hulls from Charlie.No problems.

    Wonder if they ever got their stolen trailer back.

    Regards, Pete

    Bought first gun for my wife from Mike. He drove halfway from Odessa, actually a little further, to Jacksonville and met me for the sale. This was before we started shooting at the Dollar. I have a standing order with him on one the new 22 mag Keltec. Mike is a honest and fair dealer. Jake Jacobs

    Mike Batista for President. Has a nice ring Mike, go for it. I know you would be far better at it than that never had a real job imposter that's in there now. I'll campaign for you, again. Jim

    thanks guys for your replies, i'm hoping to buy a gun from him this week. i was just a little scared about sending money to someone i didn't know. he's been very prompt at returning my emails- which doesn't happen much this day and age and he's been polite even though i've asked a million questions, i figured i'd get some references before made the plunge just to make sure. thanks again.
