I know that we GTOD'ers are scattered clear across the Commonwealth, but we do on occasion get out of our normal areas. As part of that sight-seeing, most of us want to know where the good gun stores are, like the post this week on whether Green Top is worth a stop. Heck, I have to go to Richmond next week, I'm curious about other stores in the area.

Anyone want to volunteer to run it up?

If you are ever in Augusta County you should check out Dominion Outdoors (http://www.dominionoutdoors.com/). It is a small store but very friendly. The are building a new store in Fishersville in the future which will be right off Route 64.

Over here in the Winchester area we have Stonewall Arms. its pretty decent shop.

And then there is our brand new Gander mountain just south of wincehster.

Both, if nothing, are good places to see some neat gear and have a good conversation.

The shop will be 50 times more organized, I can tell you that much! If you could get half the stuff out of the backroom on the floor than it would do incredible business! anyway...

Couple other stores in the Richmond area that I like are Degoffs in Mechanicsville (8106 Mechanicsville Pike, Mechanicsville, VA 23111 804-746-0273),and Bob Moats Sports Shop (10418 Hull St., Midlothian, VA.) on Hull Street, in Chesterfield County.

One I don't see listed in the Fredericksburg area is The Range. 62 Potomac Creek Drive, Fredericksburg, Va. 22408. Sells and rents guns, indoor range.

I like A&P Arms in Hampton. Knowledgeable folks and good prices (except Glocks 'cause they don't honor the LE/Military discount).

Nice perk is 5 free range trips (at Va Beach location) with purchase of a gun.

I haven't found any Hampton Roads store that fully honors the Glock discount. I went up to Town Police Supply in Richmond when I bought my 19.

Bill's Guns in Gretna, Va. - Hwy 29 between Danville & Lynchburg

VERY freindly and helpful people. A real Mom & Pop shop, excellent selection!!

Town & Gun in Collinsville(Martinsville)off 220.

Another good shop with nice people. Great selection, especially with the end of year sale!!
Also great police trade-ins with fantastic prices.

I got a couple that I go to in the area
New River Equipment,
2481 Wysor Highway
Draper, VA
Basically you get off of I-81 and go south on Rt. 100 a ways it is on the right side of the road just before you get to the New River bridge. Well stocked for a small shop. I have only been there once and haven't bought anything yet so.....

K and K guns
167 Ridge Ave
Rural Retreat, VA 24368

This is my gun shop right here. Not as well stocked but Cliff is easy to work with, but a little hard to get to know so.... He is pretty fair on his prices and would get me just about anything I need I think. Deals mostly in sig pistols and has a large array of hunting gear. has some holsters too though. Did I mention he was a Class III dealer and has cans and autos in the shop to browse over???

In the Roanoke area we just had a new Sportsmans Warehouse open up on 11/21/07 near the Home Depot off of Hershberger Rd.

Also out in the Montvale area, east of Roanoke on Rte 460 is Roadside Sporting Goods. They're kind of in the back next to the BP station.

The Sportsmans Warehouse was closed back in April 2009 as I recall.

I've found the exact opposite to be true. A&P *****es if you fire more than two rounds in 5 seconds and the employees in there are more concerned with pretending to be super secret squirrel ninjas than they are helping any one out.

The times I've been to Bob's has been quite pleasant and they didn't care how fast my follow up shot were.

Odd....

It's not really a gun shop but they do FFL transfer and will special order firearms for you. I deal with them few months ago when we group ordered 10 AR15 receivers. They charged $10 per transfer so the money we saved was substantial.

Was in NOVA today on business and had a little extra time to burn so I looked up local ranges and came across Blue Ridge Arsenal. Spent an hour there and have to say that I really liked the place. The people were nice and had a chance to meet the owner Earl....nice guy. I'll be sure to check them out again next time I'm in the area. You guys got any other ranges you can recommened when I'm NOVA?

The MCX at Camp Allen is an LE Dealer for our area.
Called Glock today and asked.

They can get ya the LE price, but it has to be ordered from Glock and the wait right now is 8-12 weeks.

Yeah, they're supposedly an LE dealer. Ask them their price and then call Town Police Supply to compare. You can pay more AND wait 2-3 months to get your Glock!

I have to give another endorsement for Dances Sporting Goods as well, they have shown me nothing but respect and helpfulness, which is a hard thing for me to find these days. I don't mind going out of my way to give them my business. If they had a range it would be the only place that I would frequent.
...plus the food isnt too bad either. You get a little hungry when you go in to buy a box of rounds, and end up spending almost an hour in there checking out the consignment pieces.

Hey all. There's, I think, a relatively new Glock Armorer in Winchester, VA: Frederick County Firearms, http://www.fcfirearms.com/.

I took my Glock 17 in yesterday because my slide was jammed. Harlan, the main shopkeeper, took the time to fix it and didn't even charge me--even after I told him I bought the gun at the new big box Gander Mountain nearby. He wasn't too happy about that, understandably, but he helped out me nonetheless and was really pretty cool about it, advising me in the future to buy from a specialty gun store.

I bought an extra clip there for his trouble and because I can always use an additional magazine. All in all, I had a positive experience there and would recommend fellow Glockers to check them out.

There is a Dick's formally know as REI in Fair Lakes and one in Dulles Town Center (ammo, supplies, shotguns, long guns, no handguns).

The Walmart in Fair Lakes has ammo and the Walmart in Leesburg sold both ammo and some shotguns, bolt actions, muzzleloaders.

Silver Eagle Group (Sterling) just opened up.

NRA range has ammo - no firearms (other then the For Sale board) and no rentals.

Is there a store somewhere around Fairfax?

I thought i would add to this list. I bought my Glock 22 from Loudoun Guns. That place is awesome. They have the biggest selection of hand guns. And lots of them too. All new in box. I was blown away. I've been to some other stores in the manasses area...and Loudoun was awesome. I would definitely go back to Loudoun. I'm not talking trash about the other stores, i'm just saying i really enjoyed my experience at Loudoun Guns.

They are a little overpriced IMO. Paid $760 for a G30SF with nightsights. They have most guns in stock so thats maybe where the value is.

Purcell Store Inc. 141 East Main Street Purcellville Va 20132 540-338-8080 www.purcellguns.com , Class 3,

My experience has been that this guy is a total, self absorbed jerk who does NOT give a rat's ass about his customers. Had bought serious items there in the past, later attempted a small return on a defective magazine and he essentially called me a liar, trying to get it to work after I described at length what was wrong with it and wanted to get a refund. Basically refused to help me and said all I could do was return it to the manufacturer since his distributor "wouldn't accept it back" which is nonsense. Distributors are interested in sales and most good ones would be more than happy to keep a good shop satisfied.

He will never get my business again. Extraordinarily smug and happy to mark up ammo during the panic, but when the panic passes and he's short of customers this former regular will be happy to continue shoppin elsewhere. One of the few on my Never Again Blacklist. His attitude is Me, Me and How much money can I make and you lousy customers can take it or leave it, you need it I got it and if you want it pay me or tough s***.

His prices are good, and he has some stock on good items and a nice clean store. That said, he manages to start an argument every time I have a conversation with him. The last time, after I told him I had scored some WWB 9mm from Walmart, he proceeded to tell me it was all junk, factory seconds, etc. The reason WHY I don't beleive that is for the volume WM sells, Winchester would have to have a factory running full tilt deliberately producing crap. Plus, ive never had a problem with it, accuracy or otherwise. Its legion of fans, especially here also tell the tale. He seems nice otherwise.

Sorry to hear that. My best experiences have been at Virginia Arms in Manassas and Swanson's in [H]oodbridge, although I have not been to the latter in quite some time. I also like Dominion Outdoors in Stuarts Draft, but that's a very long drive. It's beautiful that way though.

I have been faithful to Todd and his people since they were in a TINY shop next to Food Lion and Family Dollar in Stuarts Draft. They now have a building of their own they built in Fishersvile. Exit 91 {Fishersville Exit} then head towards s}Stuarts Draft. There will be a Sheetz on your left and a McDonalds on the right. About one quarter to one half mile on the left. Entrance is BEFORE the store. {Between them and the strip mall next door.}

My wife and I have to give a good report for Superior Pawn & Gun in Virginia Beach. Great service, knowledgeable help, and their prices were better than anyone I found. We did happen upon them during one of their sales, but they can't be beat in my opinion. We purchased two Glocks from them, a 17 and a 32.

They helped us with a holster choice, and told us not to buy some things, very honest and true. Both women and men salespersons. They made my wife and I very comfortable.

I like that they ring up range members first to use the range so don't have to wait in line. The Armory in Chesapeake I have bought 1 gun from them limited selection in firearms but they honor the LE/MIL program as well with the normal wait time when ordering. For military the MCX in Norfolk has a limited selection but can order what you want I bought 1 Glock from them ordered it and 6 weeks later it arrived at the store. Superior Gun and Pawn bought a holster and some ammo from them did not like the "what do you want" type customer service.

Franklin Outdoors

Rocky Mount, VA 24151
540-483-5608

Well worth the drive if you are anywhere nearby. Just south of Roanoke.

It seems like they have more stuff than Gander Mountain and better prices than Walmart.

Check them out. Nice folks.

Open 7 days a week during deer season - How about that!

Example:basic Glocks $485 cash.

Powder and bullets much less than I've seen anywhere, i.e.
Hornaday bullets 38/357 HP box of 100 $15.99
Unique powder lb $20.99

I didn't see anything mentioned about Ron Hess' gun shop on Tidewater Drive right off 64.

I went in there when I was shopping for my Mossberg, I didn't like it at all.
The guy wasnt very customer friendly. Acted as if I was bothering him when asking about what he has in stock. Other than that the store was cluttered and felt more like a bad flea market than a gun shop. I wont be going into that store ever again.

New store in Charlottesville VA.

He's just starting up - mostly a Tactical shop, but can get anything.

Transfers are $25.00.

Take care,

I now travel the Commonwealth and was curious about places in or around Danville or Lynchburg?

We've got a few in Lynchburg.

Ace Hardware & Gun Store (Can be rather overpriced, but has a great selection)
2200 Lakeside Dr
Lynchburg, VA 24501
(434) 385-6388

Amherst Arms (just north of Lynchburg, guys seemed nice & knowledgable, have a gunsmith too, C3 but don't appear to stock any NFA items)
http://amherstarmsandsupply.com/
113 Sprouse Dr
Amherst VA 24521
434-401-9865

Lynchburg Arms & Indoor Shooting Range (new range, stays busy, nice staff, prices seem reasonable)
http://lynchburgshootingrange.com/
113 Sunburst Rd.
Lynchburg, Va. 24501
434-525-2604

MC Leather
http://www.mc-leather.com/
434.841.9093
I'd post an address, but he's moved twice this year and I don't have his new address (behind the cabinet shop on the opposite corner of 221 & Enterprise Dr). His selection is a little smaller, but he's a C3 dealer that tries to stock YHM suppressors. I'm in paperwork stage of purchasing one from him. His prices are the best around, for the most part. $10 transfers, even for C3 (at least that's what he told me). Seems nice enough, but I've heard stories about his special orders not going so smoothly. He usually has some of the best prices at gun shows.

Ginks Gun Shed
1290 Marcus Trail
Big Island, VA 24526-2851
(434) 299-5105
Now... this is probably one of the most unique gun 'stores' I've ever encountered. May need a 4wd to get there in the winter. Quite literally a shed in the middle of the woods, behind the owner's house. Owner is an older retired military fellow that had some sort of cancer and uses one of those voice boxes to talk. Super nice guy. His shed/shop is full of guns, probably more than most larger stores. Has suppressors and machine guns for sale (saw Mac 10 for $5300 I think). You can also rent the guns and shoot them 'out back'. Gotta follow the signs to find the place, but it's probably worth the experience. I'd peg most of his stock as 'used', rather than 'new'.

Just used Fish Safari in Virginia Beach to do a firearms transfer today. They are an FFL and only charge a $15 transfer fee. Service was awesome and I was in and out in 10 minutes after paperwork and background check. I shopped around and they had the cheapest transfer fee compared to others.

If you are ever in the Lynchburg area, stop in at Lynchburg Arms and Indoor Shooting Range, located at 113 Sunburst Road. The facility is about a year old and is really nice. We have a good gun selection and the indoor range is top notch.

It is now called "Pro's Choice Sporting Goods". The address is 173 Vista Centre Dr, Forest, VA 24551. Phone is 434-239-3044. I've been in there a couple of times and they just recently transitioned to a new FFL. The owner told me that their old price for LE Glocks was $370 which I have never seen lower anywhere. Currently they are not participating in the program because the new FFL has to be an authorized Glock dealer for 6 months before they will be eligible. I'll definitely be picking up another few guns at that price when they get going again.

The guy from MC Leather sold out to Pro's Choice. They're not affiliated with him. He actually screwed me on a silencer purchase. Would hate to actually associate Pro's Choice with him.

I was in Manassas to pick up some washing machine repair parts and noticed two doors down was Hatfiled's Gunsmithing. Went in (of course), nice group of guys, small shop - but - they had flyers for their hosted pin and plate shoots at Fairfax Rod & Gun Club and several Glock race guns in the showroom. I gathered their main income is from custom work/builds (Glocks and 1911's - hard to tell which is a heavier focus, if either). They have a MILO simulator they demonstrated for me (uhhh...yeah - need to get one of those in-home - somewhere between $8k and $38k from the searches I did). No shooting range at the main site. Inventory was pure custom work and Condor bits and pieces. Owner is purported (no reason to disbelieve, but I haven't done due diligence) to be former armorer for US Army 1911, team USA members, etc.

Again - nice group of guys, talked with a couple of them at length about local 3-gun opportunities, utility of MILO simulator, etc. No BS, just straight talk and no opinion - just fact. That alone is reason to return.

Adding a few more Richmond area stores that I didn't see posted or did not have full info.

Southern Police Equipment (AKA Southern Gun World)
7609 Midlothian Turnpike
Richmond, VA 23235
800-542-5243
Southern Police Equipment (http://www.southernpoliceequipment.com/)
Right across from the VSP headquarters, they have a huge focus on LE contracts and equipment. But not too much in the way of hunting. But still, all the tacticool toys! They often have good sales on LE buyback firearms.

Town Police Supply
3541 Courthouse Road
Richmond, VA 23236
800-443-8871 or 804-745-6433
(There is a second location at 3985 Virginia Avenue, Collinsville, VA 24078. 800-752-5580 or 276-647-4161
Town Police Supply (http://www.townpolice.com/)
The Chesterfield location is hidden behind the Regency Inn and Suites at the corner of Hull and Courthouse. This is another gun store that focuses on LE contracts. Years ago I felt very unwanted there when I browsed, but now they are a very friendly store to be in.

Green Top
10150 Lakeridge Parkway
Ashland, VA 23005
804-550-2188
Green Top (http://www.greentophuntfish.com/)
I remember when the staff was quaking in their boots because Bass Pro and Gander Mountain were opening stores right on top of them. But they outlasted Gander Mountain and took over that location! (My GPS still takes me to their Route 1 location, oddly enough.) This store focuses on hunting and fishing, but they also have a great selection of pistols and rifles for home defense and competition shooting. If you want to modify your AR, odds are that they have the parts in stock. There is a reason they are standing toe to toe with Gander and Bass Pro.

Bass Pro
11550 Lakeridge Parkway
Ashland, VA 23005
804-496-4700
Bass Pro (http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CFPageC?storeId=10151&appID=94&storeID=67)
It's Bass Pro. What can I say? This place is like an amusement park, and I keep going back for more. I have spent so much money here... But very little on firearms. It just sucks you in.

Bob Moates Sport Shop
10418 Hull Street Road
Midlothian, VA 23112
804-276-2293
Bob Moates Sport Shop (http://bobmoatesgunshop.biz/contact.htm)
Bob has since passed on, but his wife runs the place. It is the place to go to get a reproduction firearm (especially for American Civil War reenactments) or an older firearm. There is a huge selection of used firearms. They have a nice selection of black rifles behind the counter, but if they are busy then it's difficult to get someone to help you. It used to be a quiet shop and now it's always busy.

Rebel Sporting Goods, Ltd
115 King Street
Keysville, VA 23947
434-736-8248
Rebel Sporting Goods (http://www.rebelsportinggoods.com/)
I would be remiss if I did not mention Bob Moates second location. As I understand they are under new management, so I can not tell you much about the place. (I believe the "second" shop used to be in the area of Charlotte Courthouse.)

DeGoff's
8106 Mechanicsville Turnpike
Mechanicsville, VA 23111
804-746-0273
DeGoff's (http://www.degoffsva.com/)
This is the store that I purchased my first firearm from, which was a used pre-ban Glock 17 with three magazines. (The ban was still in effect at the time.) And the price was comparable to a new capacity compliant Glock. DeGoff's is a big supporter of the Cowboy Action shooting in the area, and you can get a lot of your equipment and clothes here.

Richmond Arsenal
2570 New Market Road
Suite E
Richmond, VA 23231
804-237-4289
email: hutch72 @outlook.com
New place. Small, limited selection on firearms. But the prices seem good and he has a bit of ammo for sale. (No limits on .22, which is in stock.) He offers $27 firearms transfers.

Hopkin's Gun and Tackle
8151 Mechanicsville Turnpike
Mechanicsville, VA 23111
(804) 277-8423

This store is located just a stones throw from Degoff's. The rumor is that it is owned by the previous owner of Green Top. (Didn't bother asking to confirm this.) The front half of the shop is dedicated to fishing. The back half is dedicated to ammo and firearms. I felt that they had a good selection of ammo. Plus it was nice that they had plenty of bulk 9mm and 5.56. Their firearms selection was OK, but it seemed a little sparse as compared to Degoff's. They apparently intend to put in an indoor shooting range in the next year.
