1st stop gun downtown seems to have a pretty good selection and fair prices. Had a pretty good conversation with a guy there about ARs the other day. And I'm sure they have the only SCAR in a 100 mile radius.

Didn't check out ammo prices but I'm sure it's also fair.

How about you?

I've given them lots of money over the years...still do. Great guys to deal with and most of the used gun prices are better than you can get at schitheels or scumbela's. If you want a good laugh, hit some of the pawn shops and check their selection and pricing.

I stop at 1st stop every time Im out west. They are reasonable and good to deal with.

I've bought at both First Stop and Cabelas. Both places are alright, but the guys at First Stop are definitely a bit more knowledgeable. I've looked at Scheels quite a bit but never bought anything there. I'll probably end up buying a Rem 700 SPS tac at Cabelas sometime in the near future. They are 100 bucks cheaper than First Stop and I got the deal in the mail for a $150 gift card if you spend over $500.

First Stop is alright. With the exception of a couple of gun show buys, I've bought all of my guns from them, and they handle my transfers for receivers and such. Great bunch of folks I'm on a first name basis with.

Stopped in 1st stop once... never spoke with anyone much, but they seemed like nice enough guys...

Called there looking to order a Baby Eagle about 3 years ago, they told me they don't make/import them anymore.... I called Fair Deal Pawn and picked it up a week later. Never been back to 1st Stop.

Gotta remember about Pawn Shops though, they will deal. The firearms instructor I had in RC told us if you want a gun at a pawn shop offer them half of what they have on it and go from there...

Yeah definately more haggling at a pawn shop. Of course from what Ive seen on guys getting for their trade ins at gun shops they should be able to do the same but choose not to.

I was in 1st stop 2 weeks ago and they had a baby eagle. It was pretty fair priced to if I remember correctly.

The guy that would have sold that to you at Fair Deal is a member here.
