Im looking at a AR15 for my next purchase...I was wondering is there is also a 3 day wait to get one, as they do when buying a handgun here in FL?

And if you have a license to carry concealed, there isn't even a 3 day wait for a handgun.

Gotta love the Gunshine State....

The three cesspool counties (Broward, Dade, Palm Beach) all have a 5 business day wait for rifles as well as handguns. The CWP still exempts you though.

Since when?

I have purchased a 10/22, and an AR-15 lower. For both of them, I had to wait FIVE days. I am 18, and passed the background check both times of course.

Whoa. Florida has a waiting period for handguns if you're not CHL'd? I would not have guessed that; I envy a few of your gun laws down there.

In SOME counties there is a 3 day wait even for a rifle unless you have a CCW permit. Even cops have to wait unless. Manatee CO does not have a 3 day wait on rifles, but some do (I didn't know this until I had my lower shipped to a different FFL in tampa and found out otherwise (unless they were lieing to me because they didnt like the fact that I did a x-fer).

As a police officer in my county I can go into a gun store in uniform (with sidearm) and I still have to wait the three days for a handgun purchase unless I am trading in a handgun or also have a permit (which I dont)You get to take home rifles and shotguns same day.

We've got a couple Rock River Entry Tactical's on the shelf at the moment. There's a whole ton of stuff from about any manufacturer you could want to go on it too. We may not be the least expensive place in town (sometimes we are though), but if you want it and its for your AR, chances are high we have it in stock and will install items that need installing for free... If you find your gun for cheaper elsewhere, well who can blame you? But stop by anyway just to check out what we have to offer. Even if you dont buy from us its a great place to come see stuff first hand and decide what you want on your gun.

I go to gungallery to shoot at the range when I have time...what do you do there? name?

Thanks

In the Daytona area, try Florida Gun Exchange or Shoot Straight in Apopka.

There is a 3 day wait for hanguns in Volusia (unless you have concealed weapons permit ), but long guns have on wait.

In Hillsborough and Pinellas county there is a 3 day wait on long arm purchases. When I moved down here it shocked the shit out of me, never had to wait on a longarm in Florida before

new-arguy... you guys do have alot of nice stuff, but I have to say you all are high as hell and didn't want to deal... at all. But you're right, you normally have what every ya need in a pinch.

But then again... I tend to be cheap! I have a friend w/FFL that I go through. I order what I need. He calls me and tells me when it's in. So compared to some of the other stores like Bullseye, St. Nics., or Shooters... you guys are probably about the norm. But like I said... Oy Vey.. I'm cheap.

Hawkeye is over at Shooters now as well. He's a good guy & has been a straight shooter.

I realize most times you can get many of the things we sell cheaper online and sometimes at other shops in town. You're right, the price on the item is usually what the item sells for. While I dont have much control over what items sell for at the shop, I try to offer some things that might make it a little more worth people's while. Like free range time with gun purchases, free installation of accessories, trying to have everything you could want for your gun in one place at one time, etc. If that works for someone, we'll do what we can to help. If not, who can blame a guy for wanting to save? Not me...



I wish you guys would do the shows... give Shooters a run for their money. It's a win win situation. You guys move volumes of guns, customer gets a gun @ a nice price and the $ stays here in town instead of going to Ga., SC and so forth.

Just food for thought. And yes the Fun show is this weekend 4/22-23 @ the J'ville Fairgrounds.

I used to belong to Gateway for several years, but due to more 'politics' than D.C... I have started shooting in Osceola.

I bought my first Shotty at Shooters, had a 3 day wait cause of NICs... I don't think I ever got approved or denied.. it was more like. "We'll we don't know so we have to give it to him." Now that I have a permit, I'm always in and out the same day on whatever I buy.

Shooters usually has the best prices on Pistols, but they're a bunch of used car salesman always looking for a sucker. Neil has the market on AR stuff, can't beat his knowledge or deals on accessories. As for transfers, Jim's Dog House at the beach is cheapest, unless you want to drive a few miles out of town, then you'd be in transfer heaven.
