I remember them well. I bought my first handgun from them way back when I turned 18. It's funny you title your post *Edelmans The Best Gun Store EVER*. Even till this day when I walk through the doors of a new gun shop and look around I say to myself , This aint no Edelmans. They sure spoiled me and my view on the competition.

I sure miss that place. All those display cases of handguns,they seem to go on forever. Finding your way around those racks of holsters was like looking into a jungle. Ahhh! Those memories of days gone by when there was no such thing as Per ban. I don't know whether to be bummed out or pissed off that you mentioned this subject. J/K Thanks for run down memory lane.

There was one in Newtown Square too. I still have my Marlin 336C that I got new from the Montgomerville store for $64.

I liked the ammo sales that they had also. Yes, I do miss Edelman's.

I recall the place on Roosevelt Blvd & the one on Rt 309.
Visited both and was treated to some of the most unfriendly & ignorant salespeople I've ever met.
While out to buy my first handgun I happened into the store on Roosevelt Blvd at a time when they weren't busy. There were five salesmen huddled in a group talking, totally ignoring myself and the other person trying to look at the handguns. I recall the other person telling me that this was typical behavior from the salespeople in this store.
I can actually say that one of my favorite pistols was bought from the store on Rt 309. While I love the pistol I do regret ever giving them even one dollar of my money.

IMO, we're better off without them.


Just wanted to add, I left the store on Roosevelt Blvd and went to Lock's on Frankford Ave and bought my first handgun that same day. I was definitely buying. I was not out to waste anyones time window shopping.
