Well I don't own any "tactical apparel", so yes, I'd go elsewhere

I walk into Streichers or another place and say "I want ____ altered" and I can speak the lingo to them and get the info out in about 15 seconds and get back what I asked for.
Most LE won't go to a non-LE place unless they have experience, because we want to deal with people who actually understand what we're talking about.

But more to the point, I bought the pants there and they did the hems in the first place, so I had them correct it. It took 2 minutes and it was free. Plus, it's 5 minutes from my house.

I figured as much....I just found the line funny, as most non-LE wouldn't normally associate the two services. I just got some clothes altered last week, and the Gun shop was the last place I'd think to go.
