    I buy from many online retailers (and from LGSs too)

    My favorite is Impact Guns www.impactguns.com ... they have nice selection and good prices fast shipping

    Found a new one www.rkguns.com (rural King) that looks promising...

    Who are your favorites?

    Buds, I like their e-check payment option.

    Bud's for me most of the time, for firearms; Target Sports for Ammo in bulk. Bought some CCI Stingers and MiniMags from PSA years ago at a good price: it took about a month for them to ship, but they charged my CC the day I ordered. They may have some good stuff and prices, but that deal kinda soured me with them.

    Natchez is good, as well as Sportsman's Outdoor SuperStore.

    Southern Ohio Guns (SOG). I have also bought several from J&G Sales. Both dealers were fine to work with. I have also had really good luck on Gunbroker. I have bought probably 20 guns on GB and have not yet had a stinker deal. I may be due for a bum deal on the GB.

    Don’t have an online firearms retailer. Use Midway, or Brownells for parts. Trending more towards Midway, just because I really like Larry’s gunsmithing videos on YouTube. He is an honest to God, gunsmith. And does a lot of how to videos, that demonstrate everything from how to do simple things we should all know, to the truly esoteric, like leather recoil pads, and modifying a stock, to get it ready to send to someone with a duplicator, to start the process of fitting a stock to a rifle he will be taking to Africa.

    If you’re into tinkering with guns, the Midway channel on YouTube is must see stuff.

    Midway USA first. I know Larry and Brenda Potterfield personally. My son worked for them. No two people that I know of have donated more to the shooting sports nor done more to help shooters. They are absolutely honest and fair both in business and in their everyday lives. Midway started when Larry began loading and selling Jap Nambu ammo because it wasn't available anywhere else. Midway USA is entirely a self-made company. I always shop Midway first, then Brownell's for parts.

    I don’t use Midway, because of their high shipping costs.

    I like Midway for parts, magazines and odd stuff. I like to buy my guns locally to support the LGS. They are one of the last small retailers around, and I like to support them.

    I have used Midway, Bud's and Grabagun, and like all three. I have spent the most money through Grabagun, due to their being able to get some of the esoteric guns I want.

    Midway is top notch. Also bought from Palmetto state armory and joebobs for an AR build. Pleased with them as well. Just bought from Sportsman's Guide and they were great too. I hear great things from Buds... But haven't bought from there yet.

    They have all been good to me. Brownells, Midway, Optics Planet, Del-Ton, and every little guy from whom I have ordered just once.
