Default Where do you buy?

Where does everyone buy their guns? Do you use an online site or gun to local shops

I prefer to buy guns face to face, why pay for shipping if i dont have too. Ive bought firearm accessories online but never a firearm itself. I buy mostly from a local store in my hometown but i have bought from other people too.

Guns for Sale Online - Kentucky Gun Co.

I get 99% of my stuff from here if they don't have it and can't order it I go online, not too far from my house and the prices aren't all that bad.

Buy most of my stuff here in town. Don't buy much off the internet.

In Calif all gun transactions need to be done at a licensed dealer, which means sporting goods or gun shop. Even sales between ordinary joes have to be registered at a gun shop.

Ammo you can still order over the internet or by catalog.

So I get my ammo by calling on the phone and ordering through their internet catalogs. Cabela's is my favorite source. They normally have a wide selection in stock.

Gun shops are normally not a great source of ammo. Their supplies are usually limited.

I usually buy on base. We basically get wholesale pricing if it's in stock and no tax. If you need a special order though, you may pay retail, still no tax. Only downside is if it's a special order it may take a while to get...I.e. a friends desert eagle that took 6 weeks to come in. Also if its a limited run (such as the beretta anniversary edition I had my heart set on) they probably can't get it.

I have bought ammo online and caplock/muzzleloading weapons online, but i have yet to order a modern firearm online. My nephew and a few of my friends have had smooth online orders; it seems to revolve around finding a friendly local FFL to accept the shipment from the online retailer.

I haven't heard anything bad about Bud's. They do have a good number of descriptions and pictures for research, and the prices usually seem competitive.

I have also heard good about J&G Sales, CDNN, and Classicarms.us (nephew got his lil WASR10 there).
