    I got an infraction saying something about the stores out here. Since then I've spent several thousand at Boondocks, first class guys there. If they say they will hold something for you, they DO KEEP THEIR WORD

    Default matsu tactical

    Matsu Tactical are a couple of good guys. 907-357-3381 As good or better pricing than Boondocks. Cash or check same as Boondocks. They don't have a lot of inventory but will order for you. (This is why they have low overhead) It comes in quickly. Their shop is south (across the road) of the go cart track on PW hwy. I am a long term Boondocks customer but have switched most of my business to MatSu just to support the local guys.

    I have no affiliation with them other than being a customer.

    Hope that helps,

    Jeff

    i buy in town just because of the fact the same rifle cost me more money to buy in the matsu due to tax, and i usually buy at walmart, so for best savings i go to walmart in anchorage.

    I went to Chimos the other day as well and they were really polite and knowledgeable, but their transfer seemed a little spendy.

    Talking Im going to vote for myself

    Mat-Su tactical / Arctic Ammo & Reloading Supplies. Thanks!!!! for all you guys that support the little guys. greythorn3 next time your buying a firearm give us a chance we have no taxes at our location and can abtain you any thing from VFGrace (aka the only firearm distributer that walmart uses do to there corporate rules) at the same cost. truthfully any shop in anchorage/valley area should be able to get you there pricing if they so choose.

    OK I will stop self promoting now.

    I like and prefer Mat-Su Tactical. My buddies and myself have already bought a few AK's and other goodies from them the past couple of weeks. I'll be there tomorrow to get some more 74 mags.

    Being that this is the first time I've heard of Mat-Su Tactical i will offer apologies in advance for promoting another store over yours.

    I've had some really good deals at Sportsman and for the boolits that I buy,they are cheaper than Wally World.

    Now,I heard yesterday that 3-bears started selling guns and stuff so I went in to have a look see,they have a better selection than Wally World and prices was really good.
