Wherever the gem presents itself...most of the stuff I'm interested in is not currently being produced & older, so the retailer has to have a good used dept. Most are found online.

Last few guns I have bought have been online but it really depends where I can get the best deal or how quick I want it.

I would prefer to buy local, but most are online. The online thing is mostly due to me being lefty and/or wanting in 'now' and my local stores having to order (usually at higher prices than I get online) and pay tax.

If its not here, I support the local guy. Ive never bought a gun from academy, bass pro or any other chain. Dont plan on starting either. But, having a great personal friend in the gun bidness for the last 25 years helps

I'll use the internet to do my homework but I have a buddy that works all of the gun shows and typically buy from him.

1st choice .. Right here in the classifieds
2nd choice Academy
3rd Choice Gunbroer

NOTE: Use to get some deals in Gun shows but won't go anymore as they're mostly a collection of Pawn Shop atmosphere trying to sell used guns at new or better prices and some are junk ..

Usually find the best prices online. That will likely change the day they start collecting sales tax from all buyers rather than just in state buyers.

Wherever has the best price. Usually online, mostly at Buds Gun Shop.

But grab a gun has good deals from time to time too and they are local to me.

I concur with twosixteens . I love pawn shops for older firearms that I'm interested in. Back in the day gun shows were my favorite. But now days about all you see there, is black plastic.

I support my local gun shop when I can. They are very competative with the online dealers.
Other than that, budsgunshop.com, TBH classifieds.

I am jealous of yíall that support the local gun shops. I would love to support them but the two that I check out most frequently are so marked up I just canít justify the cost.
