A friend and I are going to visit the gunshops in the Albany area, are there any that anyone would care to mention as a good shop, even a bad shop, the more the merrier, hoping to make a day of it on this coming Saturday, any shops will do, I lean heavily to the EBR's but my friend is more the boltgun and pistol type. Thanks in advance, Sean.

Hey Sean, here are a couple places to check out:

B&J Guns @ 1702 Central Avenue, Albany NY (look for the Enterprise Car Rental Sign.) 1st Choice and if Brian is there, tell'em you frequent the board

Accurate Arms @ 2123 Central Ave, Schenectady, NY (Further west heading towards Schenectady)

Actually, that would get the most colorful response from Brian.

SAM, Special Arms and Munitions, is a shop run by a friend of mine in the same general area as B&Js. The locals can give you the address. The co-owner. Mark Kalil, is a rare Class2 manufacturer, very good smith, and black rifle fan.

That's funny right there ^ If that gets a colorful response and maybe a chuckle I'll use it!

Thanks guys, we will check them out for sure on Saturday, anymore out there? Even in the outlying area's?

Thank you all! Have a great one!!! Sean

I do 99% of my business with them now, well, since they opened actually. Mark is a good guyg, and indeed, a great smith.

I will be making them all the top of the list, I had heard of B&J's but not the others and have been to none, I love visiting new shops.

We did this last week in the Utica area, visited all that we could find but TNT, as they are not open on the weekend, I will make a trip on a weekday sometime though. what are some of these guys thinking with trying to have a life? I mean sheeeesh! heard
Thanks much! Sean.

Up near Round Lake on Route 9 is Zack's. Lake on one side off the road ans Zack's on the other. I usually get milsurps from them but also got a SAR-1 form them a few years ago. They also have some EBR's and are good guys. Not as big as B&J's, but I try to stop at both when I am in the area doing service calls.

Wave claims he keeps it in his radio car in case he gets a 311 call for a plumbing emergency.

Well I went and checked out B&J, J&J, S.A.M., and Accurate Arms, we got a late start so I didn't get the chance to check out Zack's, save that for the next trip out. What a great bunch of shops. I picked up a few small items that I needed at B&J and was pretty happy with the ammo selection at J&J, prices weren't THE best but very decent.

Thank you all for the suggestions, very much appreciated! Sean.

BTW... Brian wasn't in today.....
