Favorite Gun Shop
« on: August 25, 2017, 11:25:37 AM »
Just curious what everyones favorite gun shop? I'm down in Vancouver and haven't been to many but have been to Sporting Systems and it was very nice. Smaller shop, TONS of ARs and good handgun selection but most of all the staff are friendly. Doesn't hurt they have complementary cookies and coffee. Was thinking of checking out Safefire shop after work today.

Kesselrings had always been my favorite,  was sad to see them go. Skagit Arms is probably my favorite now. They have a pretty good inventory of reloading components. Among other things.

Since my favorite gun shop kinda cost me a lot of money this week, per my wife, I have to repeat the phrase all gun shops are bad evil places, ten times, or she said I have to sleep outside with the dog and we don't even have a dog. :dunno:

Short of the "warden" putting me on lock down, I've had good luck with Precision Combat Arms in Spokane. :tup:

I buy a lot of decent used guns, mostly handguns. My two favorite placed to buy are Pacific Pawn and Pawn Fathers on Evergreen in Everett. I can generally bet a good price drop on the items if they have set on the shelf for a month or so and I pay with cash on the spot.

Actual gun shops would have to be Skagit Arms in Burlington, but their prices are generally up there at the high end, but they do have a good inventory of used guns. I only boy a gun or two a year from there.

I check out used guns at the Cabelas in Marysville a couple of days a week and buy four or five guns there a year that are in decent shape and at a decent price.

I generally don't pay the going rate for firearms, if I can't get a good deal, I don't buy.

I also get a few guns a year from JC's Pawn Shop in Mt. Vernon, Kim will not work with you on the price. So it is what it is marked, so if it's not a good price I will not buy.

I buy the majority of my guns from the White Elephant in Spokane Valley or the Black Sheep in CDA. Occasionally, I buy an ON SALE or used gun from the Cabela's in Post Falls, but the White Elephant or Black Sheep generally have Cabela's beat on the price.

I heard Kesselrings are getting guns back in the old store.  :dunno:

I like countyline in mckenna and j&s in lacey.  Some of the few that carry stuff other than ar15s and black pump shotguns anymore.
Won't ever use County Line again.  They tried to rip me and one of my buddies off several times.  When they tell your that your never fired 1970's S&W 1911 is only worth $250 and that they have never heard of nor could find an H&K or PTR 91 something is wrong.  They also screwed up the gun smithing on my buddies brand new rifle and refused to make it right until an attorney got involved.  I-5 in Lacey, and Easy County Guns in Elma and Chehalis are great gun stores.

Kesselrings is selling guns again. It's not called Kesselrings but Brad (the chubby guy that worked at Kesselrings before it closed) is using the old pistol counter area to sell guns. Supply is limited but he will order anything and he is working on building up his supply. I hope it is successful. I've always liked Brad and his customer service was always the best to me even when it was super busy at the old Kesselrings.
