READ THIS FIRST: I wanted to start this thread because I have been on this site for years now (even though I didn't actually register back then) and I am a part of dozens of other sites and I always see this question pop up at least once a year–– "What distributor/vendor/store accepts paypal?". It's a simple question yet it never gets the response that the thread starter needed and he leaves usually in shame and in despair because he can't use his paypal bucks or whatever you want to call it. So to all of you out there, don't fear, I am here to help out a little. This question always, ALWAYS, gets the same response: Paypal hates gun owners and if you are caught you will get banned and all your hard earned money will disappear for months until they feel you have forgotten what you were going to use it for and then they refund it back to you. While that is true to some point, there are still vendors out there that accept Paypal and with this thread I am going to put them up as I find them. I only have a few right now but every time I find a new one, I will add it to this thread so we can spend our paypal bucks. This will help me too because I am hoping others will chime in and add others I didn't know about and since I plan on doing some business selling stickers and stuff I have around that I don't need through Ebay... I am going to have some extra Paypal money to spend. I don't feel like transferring it to my bank since I don't want my wife (that I love so much, she is on my bank account) to know about ALL my spending... if you don't have anything good to say, don't post it. I hope this doesn't ruffle the wrong feathers and I either get banned or the thread gets closed down.

http://www.opticsplanet.com , as the name implies they sell optics but not only that, they sell eyewear, cameras and even some lab and science stuff.
http://www.azarmament.com , a lot of Magpul stuff.
http://www.tpsproducts.com , decent rings and bases, other things also sold.
http://www.tactical-store.com , pretty much opticsplanet but also include more tactical gear and duty gear.
http://www.precisionscopes.com/home , Leupold stuff.
http://www.opticsforyou.com , a lot of different stuff with free shipping.
http://www.bmgparts.com , the name says it all.
http://www.bullsbag.com , shooting bags/rests.
http://www.wholesalehunter.com , they have an ebay button on their page, not sure if the site actually takes paypal but they do have a lot of different things on their ebay store.
http://www.stormtactical.com , sniper data books.

These are just a few that I remember, I will add more as I find them again or use them. I am not endorsing any of them, they all have one thing in common though, they accept PAYPAL.... Paypal is not going away so I don't care how much you hate them, it's a needed service and they monopolize it, so live with it and let's all try to help each other out rather than always be negative. Thanks everyone.

Just FYI - Paypal does offer a debit card...money goes into your paypal account and you can instantly go get the cash out at the ATM, or use the debit card it anywhere that accepts Mastercard.

ETA - Another cool thing about the Paypal debit card is that you get 1.5% cash back every month...which is roughly half the fees you pay to accept Paypal. I use it for my business expenses (non related industry) for almost 10 years. Last month my 1.5% back was about $100, so it's definitely worth considering if you use Paypal for business.

K.I.S.S. ... let's just worry about Paypal at the moment, thanks though.

I'm not sure of websites, but I approve of this thread because I do a lot of internet sales and I use paypal day in and day out.

www.GSGPro.com does also (they sell parts for the GSG and Sig 1911-22). Not sure if that counts

Meh, I use paypal all the time for gun stuff, just be somewhat discreet with certain items. Ebay also changed their rules this week allowing some gun parts once again:
En bloc clips
Barrels
Bolts
Choke tubes
Cylinders
Firing pins
Hammers
Magazines with a capacity to accept 10 rounds or less (high-capacity magazines that can accept more than 10 rounds are not allowed)
Slides
Trigger assemblies
