I've bought and sold a bunch of guns, but now that the last sneaky purchase I made is finally out in the open, (my wife was awestruck at the pre-ban I just bought), it's time to YAHOOOO a little and say thanks to a great dealer, Gary White, that went above and beyond in selling me a super Eagle CAR Pre-ban. [b]Gary White[/b] [size=4]Sportsman's Supply[/size=4] 115 E Taylor Hobbs NM 88240 (505) 397-4547 McNeillSportsmen@aol.com [b]Who's the best bealer you've bought from? Time to make sure your fellow members know who gave you a great deal and great service![/b]

as far as service goes, i can't say they are great, but champion firearms in College Station, Texas has the best prices i can find. i looked in houston, austin, dallas, and a lot of smaller towns trying to find someone to beat them and couldn't find anyone. i dont know how they beat everyone by no less than $30. some a whole lot more than that.

The only local shop I go to anymore is Virginia Arms in Manassas VA. Bernie runs a police/defense store so it is all AR15s, AR10s, the occasional M1A or AK, he even had a .50 in there recently. The only hunting rifles you ever see in there are on the used/trade-in rack. He's always got a great selection of Beretta, Sig, Glock, Kimber, HK, etc. pistols. He dropped S&W like a hot potato when they sold out. He also handles the shipping and recieving of Berettas being worked on by Ernest Langdon. I just had a trigger job done on my 92 compact and it feels much smoother. If any of you have a Beretta and want a smoother trigger he's the guy to talk to. For those in the DC area, you may have heard the ad on the G. Gordon Liddy show.

It would have to be BBC Weapons Armory in Hiram, Ohio. I have bought many guns from them and have always been treated fairly. It's the first place I check when I need anything in the AR or AK areas. I think most people in N.E. Ohio who go to any of the shows know Frank and Karen Byrne.

Gotta throw my .02 in for J&T Firearms in Kentucky. They do the local show in Tennessee. They are always knowledgable and the prices and AR-15 parts quality is great.

Gary White sold me a Stoner and it was perfect. JC Armory (now Lackawaxen since they beat it out of NJ) is always good. [url]http://www.jcarmory.com/[/url] Castle Arms is OK but a little SLOW! [url]http://www.castle-arms.com/[/url] My local dealer is Dean's Guns. Ruger Firearms Specialists and Chief AJ custom stuff. Dean doesn't even answer the phone, much less have a computer.

Ditto here. I had the pleasure of dealing with Pete in person since he only lives about 15 miles away. You get what you pay for and no bullshit.

I have always had good luck at Just Guns in Austin. They are friendly, usually reasonably priced, stock MGs, SBRs and suppressors, and cheerfully entertain stupid questions. Just Guns 1325 S. Congress Austin, TX 78704 512-447-4555

In the Denver area this place is hard to beat for prices. It's a tiny shop and not a lot of stock but they order anything and everything. They have no problem dealing in non PC firearms too. Tom & Joe's Firearms Incorporated 12627 W 32nd Ave Wheat Ridge, CO 303-231-0998

Thanks for the kind words, xanadu! It was great meeting you guys, also... Hope you can make it to the July 4th shoot (shameless plug [;)] ). Anybody looking for a bolt gun? Try Gene at Precision Arms. Good deals on fine rifles, high quality optics and ammo, and all the other paycheck-gouging accessories to help give you the illusion of being a good shooter! They're also one of very few stocking dealers of Robar and AWC rifles in the country (and a great place to find that elusive NIB Rem. 700 Police model!). Gene Luke Precision Arms 250 W. Crest Street, Ste. C Escondido, CA 92025 760-489-1212 Happy (1/2 MOA) hunting, havoc

Agree with lbj, Tom Gruber is the man. Fair, honest, will talk you out of buying crap, and really knows his stuff.

HoGuns in San Antonio. (210) 521-2288. Wayne has a great selection, reasonable prices, service is great. I bought my AR, SKS, and two Makarovs from him. Most of his ammo is cheaper than wal-mart. Wayne doesn't have the condescending attitude that many dealers have, and he is always willing to take time to answer my questions. He has AK's, AR's, a .50 or two, bolt guns, shotguns, etc, and if he doesn't have it, he can probably find it.

My friendly neighborhood dealer here in the Houston area. He will order anything and sell for 10% over his cost. I have not found a shop that can even come close to any price I have gotten from him. If any one in the area is interested, e-mail me and I will send you his info.

Chazz, you gotta tell us how to contact him so other members in the Houston area can make him rich!

I have to agree with xanadu about Sportsman's Supply. He doesn't care if you purchase $1 or $5000, you still get the same courteous service. Am now the owner of a HK 91 from Gary.
