Where do you buy your guns?

Okay, unless I missed it, there isn't a thread about the best places to buy in Texas.

If you are in central Texas, you can get your Glocks from Yankee Gunsmith. I bought two Glocks there a couple of years ago and he has both LEO and military pricing. When I was looking, I couldn't even find the G23, let alone at a reasonable price. Someone slipped me his phone number while I was in a pawn shop looking. I called him and he had several in stock at $429 (military price). His prices have gone up, but I just checked the site and it's $435 for military, $398 for LEO. That's for the fixed sight models.

I've heard good things about Yankee Gunsmith in Copperas Cove. Thinking about getting a 23 there. Which is better deal, Glock night sights or Trijicon ? Website is www.justglocks.com , check price list. I'll be getting a retired military buddy to buy for me with his discount.

Gun shows are the way to go in San Antonio. For standard items, once a month works.

You can get a Glock 19 for about $459. I looked at the Justglocks site and their price to regular guys was $500. That's the same price as Academy here.

Same in DFW.

Even the retail guys who do shows still sell cheaper at shows. For example, Bachman is $1795 for HK Mark23 at retail and it was $1695 at recent show. Same with Glocks - $429 at show, $449 retail.

At the last Big Town show, Bachmans was asking 449 for glocks with regular sights, and had some with Mep. night sights for 499. I went with the night sight model for only 50 more.

Dury's Guns in San Antonio is a good place to deal with. I have dealt with them in the past and they aren't too bad. Their prices are not GREAT, but they are competitive.

Info on http://www.durysguns.com

I like Dury's. I bought a gun from them on lay-away. The extra price ($20) was worth the convenience. They are also pleasant and the store is well laid out.

I hate the stores where you can't see the stock.

I buy in Austin,though I live in SA they suck at sales here. I buy at gun shows and a few stores in Austin. SA has a good range or two but don't buy stuff here.

any idea when the next gun show is going to be in Austin? The stores around here (at least most that I have been to) will send you away with a gun and a funny walk if you buy from them.

This guy has pretty good prices, he is located out Boerne, but its not to far of a drive if you live in NW San Antonio. I was looking for a 590A1 and he gave me the cheepest price I could find in San Antonio, and only about $15 more then what I found on the net.

I bought my G30 for 495 at the Market Hall show. Night sights were gonna be more. seemed like a good deal. Cheaper Than Dirt has good prices (relatively) in Ft Worth. cheaperthandirt.com if you havent been there already. Ammo is well priced and the store has good layout.

Tom and Becky at Sporting Arms are evil people.

Yesterday, I went to pick up a Bond Arms Texas Defender I ordered from them. Somehow when I got back in my car I had the Bond Arms and a Springfield Armory XD9. When I returned home, I noticed I had cash than I started the morning with.

Beware of the owners of Sporting Arms. Besides having inventory and good pricing. I believe they use Jedi mind tricks !!!!!

LMAO
