I live in the Buckhead area and the closest store to me is Chucks Firearms. This is a quality store with a friendly atmosphere but I was wondering where yalls favorite store is around the Atlanta area for new and used quality handguns with a large selection and friendly helpful staff.
Thanks Chris I'll check those out. I also found B&B Outdoors in Roswell yesterday. They were helpful and had a modest selection
Big Woods Goods up in Canton (Holly Springs) is the best store I found in the 6 years I lived in Marietta. Great folks, fair deals, what more could you ask for? I understand a new store/range just opened near BWGs, just off I-575 and Sixes Road...
Also try nicks Guns. It is not fancy, and you are better off going to Adventure Outdoors if you want accessories, but Nicks has a big selection with knowledgeable friendly people.
Their range time is reasonable too!
Nick's Guns and Range up in marietta off canton rd. I know the owner, Kurt, personally and he runs one hell of a shop! its where i bought my keltec and also where i plan on buying my cz, unless of course i find one incredible deal on a used one. their NIB prices havent been beaten on everything i've looked at.
400 pawn up in dawsonville has a HUGE selection of new and used and an even bigger selection of tactical rifles and such...good people
Cedar Creek is in Oakwood (where i bought my xd9sc) and they are some of the best guys to deal with...not a greta big selection but they can get a lot and will glady let you fondle any of the guns they have without hesitation...
Shuler's is in Gainesville...kinda high on the prices but good people and have a lot of things to gawk and oogle...
I'll recommend Bulls-Eye in downtown Lawrenceville. Pretty good people when you get to know them, and the prices are usually good. I just picked up an M&P c 45 today at the same price that Bud's sells them for and no FFL fee.
Just bought my first firearm a few weeks ago, got a FN Herstal FNX 9mm. Live in Vinings so i went to Adventure Outdoors since they are close by, i was very disappointed. I asked the sales guy 1 simple question (what does the USG stand for on the FNP 9?) This was before i did my own research, the sales guy told me that it was the type of barrel, it is of course a safety.
It was a long drive but very worth it, went to Deaton's gun shop in Loganville/Snellville area. Didn't treat me like an annoying first time buyer, they took the time to answer all of my questions.
