Online stores to purchase handguns and accessories...
Can you recommend good stores online where one can purchase handguns and accessories (preferably ones that carry a good selction)? I understand that I will have to use a local FFL to do the actual transfer etc.
Most wholesalers of firearms won't allow access to the site without an account. If the FFL holder you use is a good buddy he'll probably let you peruse his wholesale catalog. For accessories, I like Graf & sons but I've also used Natchez, Midway and Brownell's. Like anything else you just have to shop to get the best price for any one given item.
Regarding Bud's Gun Shop... When an item is listed as "Factory New" does it come with all the original factory materials like box, paperworks etc? I ask because on some pages it lists such mats but not on most. Plus I cannot contact them to ask, as they are closed for the next 4-5 days. They seem to have many options that I like and I am trying to narrow down the store I want to work with.
If it says Factory New, it comes with everything that a new one would come with from anyone else (Case, Manual, etc.) They do have some great prices, although at times you can find some better deals on gunbroker. It's often times not a dealer and it's an individual if that bothers you at all (on gunbroker that is). Hope this helps!
My office is about 10 miles from these guys and although I have yet to make the pilgrimage, everything I have heard from local guys is all good. They run a clean shop and I plan on hitting their range in the next two weeks to work out some rusty skills.
