    Where do you shop online?

    Could y'all list some *good* online gun buying sites? I've found a couple, but since I'm hesitant about buying a firearm over the internet, I'd like some recommendations from people who have done it before. Usually I just head down to my local gun shop but would like some other options and perhaps more to choose from.

    Uh, well - you can't actually buy a new gun over the internet without the assistance of a gun dealer.

    But, if you have an FFL who will assist you, you can try gunbroker.com.

    I have made private purchases on the net, where I met the person on one of the various gun boards - but bear in mind if the person resides outside of your State you still have to use an FFL as a mediary - or at least for handguns.

    I suggest using an FFL anyhow, you get a bit of protection from dirtbags who know they can't shop a gun store.

    Yeah, the guy at my local gunshop with help me out with anything I want to get online...he just doesn't get a lot of new stock and stick to just a couple manufacturers as he's pretty small.

    Well, in that case - gunbroker is decent for finding price comparisons, but as an LEO you should be shopping the LEO distributors for what gun you want.

    In Oregon, not sure who they all are but I know some of them depending on the brand.

    I have done business with the site listed below. They have reasonable prices and are great to do business with. They also have a good selection. They will only ship to an FFL holder that will receive the weapon and transfer to you. You can check them out at the site below:

    I like to do local purchases on local forums, but if you insist on purchasing online, budsgunshop.com is a great place with cheaper than usual prices.

    Another place I frequent is summitgunbroker.com. He sells most guns for very cheap.

    My experience with Budsgunshop was very good -- my gun is here in my hands in less than a week! It was very simple.

    there are not a whole lot of options on the website but you can go to www.gtdist.com its a law enforcement only store and if i am not mistaken they can ship it directly to your agency instead of having to go through a gun dealer
