    Question online gun stores

    im looking for a good web site to order guns from. if you have any first hand experience with a decent site please let me know of it...and also i was wondering how they go about registering it. would they just send it to a local gun store around you area or, how would that work?

    I've used Bud's Gun Shop numerous times, and all transactions have gone just fine. They have some of the best prices on the internet.

    A dealer will ship the gun to a dealer that is local to you, and your local dealer does the transfer to you for a fee the amount of which can vary greatly. If you decide that you are going to order a firearm, make sure that you have already lined up an FFL dealer before you order.

    Bud's is a good suggestion. Just FYI, If you are transferring from an online dealer to a local dealer, in some cases you can just do business with a local shop for the same price. I had my gun ordered from a local shop, and by the time all the fees were said and done i spent less money doing it that way than ordering online and transferring. Plus I prefer to support local business whenever possible, but that is just the way I like to do things. There is nothing wrong with online shops. Good luck to you and be safe.

    I've never bought from Bud's Gun Shop, but have heard excellent things and they are who I use as a benchmark for pricing. I have purchased my Sig and accessories from, and definitely recommend, Top Gun Supply.

    I have purchased from GunBroker.com. As with any online purchase, you need to add $50 to $100 to the price listed to cover shipping and FFL transfer fee.

    +1 on Top Gun Supply and they are in Ohio. If you can buy it at the local shop it saves having it sent to the local FFL. I ordered a Sig P239 from TGS and received it only 3 days after ordering. No big deal just find a local FFL.

    I use a Pawn Shop in my town that is inexpensive for weapons to be shipped to. Costs me $25 for paperwork to be submitted.

    And I have no idea what game you 2 are talking about - I must be getting old. The last game I showed any enthusiasm towards were the Command and Conquer series. That's been a while.

    The way it works at Davidson's is they are just a distributor. Every participating retailer sets his own prices. Go to the find a retailer page , enter your zip, and check prices on the various retailers in your area. http://www.galleryofguns.com/Retailer/default.aspx

    I have bought many guns from Davidson's participating dealers, and most have been cheaper than Buds. The trick is to find a dealer that works on a small margin. They also have monthly and weekly specials where the prices are even better. Most of the guns I have purchased from them were on special and way too cheap. So cheap - it would have cost me money to pass them up.

    Thanks for letting me know about the specials. I'll look in there from time to time.

    I went through their ordering process which includes finding a retailer, and found the same handguns that I have recently purchased both locally and through Bud's, and the prices were much higher. I guess it might work out if I contact a dealer and try to hammer out an even deeper discount before actually ordering...

    I have used Bud's, Florida Gun Exchange, and The Exchange which is www.onlinegundeals.com . Good experiences with all. The Exchange has had the best prices for me and are a pleasure to deal with.
