    Any of you use The Sportsmans Guide for your firearm accessories, ammo, or gear? I definitely steer clear of their noname ammo, but I love their cases, ammo cans, harnesses and holsters. Have seen scopes and all sorts of other things available also.

    I buy a lot of ammo from sportsmansguide but not much else. They have good prices but there are no bargains.

    every now and then i buy things from them. look @ the reviews first though. everything that i've purchased from them, and cheaper than dirt, has been really good purchases.

    Really, I've not gotten to the point that I trust ammo other than store bought standard winchester or remington.

    I am a Sportsman's Guide "Club" member, which gives me an additional 10% off most items, 5% on ammo, and I highly recommend their products on name brand items and ammunition.

    I time my purchases to qualify for free shipping, and with no sales tax, their prices usually beat anything else I can find.

    They do promote a lot of cheap, Chinese junk, though, so buyer beware!

    I'm a club member also. Not everything is the best quality so you do have to look at reviews and shop carefully but I've been buying from them for over 10 years and have yet to send anything back. Probably the best buy I've gotten are their 511 pants. These things are very well made, have padded knees, heavy material and tons of roomy pockets. I forget exactly what I paid but it was around $25 per pair. I'd say they were a good buy at twice that price. All in all, good stuff at decent prices

    More than once I've attempted to purchase 5 or 6 items online, went to checkout, and found all but one out of stock.

    I gave up on them for a while for just that same experience. The ammo with good prices was back ordered all the time and I let my buyer's club expire.

    I have bought a good amount ot Guide Gear labled stuff that has pretty good. I was offered a free club membership a while back and have one again, I'll probably just buy some things before it expires and not pay for a renewal.

    I'm a club member too, I've had really good luck with everything but size on some surplus clothes. They took the returns no questions asked.

    If you have AAFES privileges, access from AAFES ONLINE to get the same SG member pricing.

    I do buy a lot of stuff from SG but I never joined their club. The full 10% discount is seldom applied to everything, In the rules it says 10% across the board. I do always have a $10 coupon. I spent $100 there yesterday. But I will never join the savings club. If SG didn't have such good service I wouldn't shop there at all. If you promise 10% disciounts then everything should be discounted.

    Am a member as well. I do make a few purchases from time to time. I bought some 7.7mm Jap ammo just for the brass. Haven't shot it yet. I have also purchased slings, accessories, etc. Nothing high dollar.
