    Default Great Northern Guns

    On many new guns, they have well below retails prices. A lot of people think their prices on used guns are high, but they are willing to deal, so that negates the situation. During this latest supply/demand/ problem, they have kept the price of powder consistently low, when it is available for sale.

    Default Money talks

    I go where it is the cheapest. Last year I got a lot of ammo at Fred's with their 20% off coupon. Not the best ammo, but for plinking with a .22 or spending a few weekends at the range it worked just fine.

    Default favorite shop

    I have been happy with Great Northern Guns. Every time I go in there, it is always busy, but I have always been greeted and asked if I need any help, no matter how busy it gets. I like Boondocks too, my only complaint is the cash only thing, I wish they would catch up with the 21st century and take plastic.

    Another vote for boondocks. They always have something interesting on special, pretty good inventory and they don't talk down to you like many of the other gun shops.

    Boondocks. They will order anything I ask them to and will receive guns for me with no hassles.

    Default Boondock's

    Most credit card companies support anti gun legislation. So, I would bet that is a factor in why they do not accept credit cards. Been buying stuff at Boondock's since the early eighties and have found that they have the best prices.

    Default GNG & Boondocks

    x2 what Mauserboy said. GNG has a great selection of new/used firearms and reasonable prices. I like Boondocks too for guns & accessories. Excellent service and knowledgeable help at both places. I like Gun Traders too..close to home and good reload selection.

    Since you didn't say location, I've been buying most of my guns through Williams Shooters Supply in Quincy, Illinois for the past 20 years.

    Why? Because they give me the best deal.

    Well I have purchased 3 rifles in this last year all from Boondocks as well. So I guess I'd have to say they end up with the majority of my firearms purchases as of late.

    Default Fine Folks

    Boondocks is first on my list follwed by GNG. Boondocks, as noted before, will order anything and only ask for a small deposit. I have bought new and used there and they have done firearm transfers for me, helped me decide when faced with several options.............without leading me one way or another, just point out what's different about each.

    Good people

    Thumbs up Brown Bear Gun Shop....

    I guese it is the Brown Bear Gun Shop and Museum on Tinker Lane in Kenai. David Thorton is the owner. He is an old time Alaskan who has done lots of hunting. He has a neat log building full of old interesting stuff and a few dead critters, the wood stove smells good. He still puts together a rifle for himself once in a while and leans towards Enfields, Mausers and older big bore calibers. He is fairly small scale as it compares to a big store and I am sure Anchorage will beat his prices. Before his health gave out he spent many years going to India in the winter months and building housing for orphans and widows. He paid his own way over there and worked on a volunteer basis. He also believes in Jesus. His place is close to me. When I add all this up I appreciate having a neighborhood gun store with such a quality person running it. I know it will not last forever. I better grab a grandkid and go see him tomorrow.
