East county guns in Elma he now has a shop in Centralia as well.  Andy always treated me nice, which I cannot say for most the gun shops and pawn shops I have been in.  Private party and sellers here on Huntwa are also often a really good option.

I used to like Gun Town in South Everett (or was it lynnwood?) for handguns. Was sad to see them close their doors. Kesselring's was always good too, as long as you didn't deal with the grumpy guy.
I can't say I have a favorite now. Skagit Arms prices things too high. The buying experience at Cabela's is brutal. Coastal gave me a good buying experience on a pistol that was sale priced really cheap, so they get a thumbs up from me.
For price and selection, grabagun.com is hard to beat.

Any good gun stores closer to Vancouver? I refuse to buy from Cabelas regardless of price.  What a major PITA experience.  :yike:

Precise Shooter in Lynwood. They don't have a ton of stock on hand but can order stuff in. I've been in there a couple of times when people have had stuff sent there from gunbrokers and overheard them saying they wish they had looked there first! Ffl transfer is $25!

They bailed out of Seattle as soon as the taxes started getting rolled out on guns and ammo.
My interpretation of the rules are open to interpretation.
Once I thought I was wrong but I was mistaken.

I have bought a couple of handguns from DJ's, I've stopped there several times and they seamed to be under-staffed, but they do have a bunch of guns at some what reasonable prices. I made two scores on two of me guns on my want list. Not really at bargain prices, but I have them. Kind of out of the way for me, Wish they were closer.

Its been years now, but when I lived in Seattle I would buy guns from Federal Way Discount Guns.

Ah, the old store Kesselring customer service...When you could get it. Yes, Old Grumpy was something else, but few of the staff were much better. I recall one afternoon being the lone customer in the entire store. The lone sales associate promptly moved to the far end of the gun counter and proceeded to ignore me standing at the other end. The phone rang and he answered it:

"I'm too busy right now...Call back later."

We have a couple pretty good places to buy guns in Colville, Clark's All sports and North 40. I've also bought a lot through the years at the White Elephant in Spokane, both locations.

I forgot to mention Carpsniper here on the forum, it's really good to deal with him!

Tough choice.  There was an African safari themed shop in South Carolina, a liquor and gun store in Texas and a gun store, range and strip club in Las Vegas.

The name I'm thinking of started with a W and rhymed with pain.
