I’ve been going in there for over 25 years and this is new. They’ve always carried fishing and camping gear, but no guns and no shooting equipment. It’ll be interesting to see what they carry and whether they’ll receive guns bought online. Even if their prices aren’t great, there’s NO SALES TAX on stuff bought in the BX.
Damn! I spent 8 years there and now that I'm gone they wanna start selling?!?! Oh well, I got my G19 at Quantico and some ammo at one of the Army bases out here in the NCR, Ft. Belvoir or Meade i think. The no sales tax is definitely a benefit! And they can usually get any of the "normal" guns for comparative prices.
