gun purchases
 
So where does everyone get their fix from? Do you buy at a local gun shop? Do you buy off the internet and have it shipped in? Or do you buy only from individuals as to keep your name off the paperwork? Just kinda curious what everyone's thoughts is.

A mix of internet vendors and local brick and mortar.

Mostly internet. I can find better deals on some guns even when you add together the shipping and transfer fee. I can also find what I want easier.

I seem to have my best luck (or impulse buys) at "pawn & gun" places.

Mostly gun shows and word of mouth.

We try local, but availability normally leads to web auction purchases.

I've always bought from individuals and gun shows mostly but that's only because of opportunity. I have atleast one person I week tell me they are selling a firearm. But I have bought from, and have a friend at a local gun store. I haven't ever bought online though. Just a random thought I had.

Last 5 or so have been from the same LGS. Developing a good relationship and I do better than internet prices even if you don't include transfer fees. His selection is good and he'll have between 200-250 guns in stock at any given time.

if buying a new gun, i can almost always get it cheaper at local stores. sometimes the price may be $10 or $20 cheaper online after shipping & fees, but considering the waiting for them to receive payment & then waiting for it to be shipped, the hassle of getting payment & ffl copy & all that together, i'll buy local instead.

when i buy online it's usually because i either can't get what i'm lookin for locally or it's a used gun i can get a helluva lot cheaper than the local stores are asking for them.
