    Got an email this week that Ft Stewart has opened a gun store in the PX. The last on post gun store I was in was at Camp Lejeune and it had some good stuff at fair prices. I'm going to have to drop in tonight after work and scope the place out. If it's a true PX operation - that means no sales tax so if the prices are reasonable...

    Eglin AFB has (had) one in the main BX. Seemed to do pretty good. Reasonable prices. All new firearms (no used so forget about trading). :)

    I just made a quick run to look it over and the prices are decent:

    Ruger SR9c, stainless slide: $412
    Rock Island Tactical 4": $424
    Remington 1911: $610

    No sales tax.

    Also saw & handled the Desert Eagle 1911, looked OK at first glance...

    Negative, new sales only.

    I spoke with the manager and he said they were going to open in 33 PX's nationwide. They will also special order any gun you want and there's no shipping and you'll pay the standard markup...

    Kirtland AFB, Albuquerque - is a big fat negative and very much doubt we will have one in the future. The standard BX stuff they sell in too overpriced!

    Do they have a listing on which PX/BX or NEX will have them?

    Thanks

    The base and Albuquerque have changed alot, like all bases and cities. My old home town of Gonzales and Baton Rouge, Louisiana complete makeover.

    I'll ask the manager next time I wander over there. Since Bliss is now a FORSCOM operation - I'd expect they'd go this route...

    Thanks. They are re-vamping the whole PX area at Bliss. They are calling it "Patriot's Crossing" and making it more mall like. The are even adding a 10-screen theater. The bad part is that they took the Cinnabon shop away.

    You aren't kidding, I used to surprise Scubie with the Pecanabons, but not any more.

    The Navy still does not believe its members are mature enough to handle firearms on base unless they are with security (and those are contractor positions).
