    Everywhere - The Internet - shipped to your local FFL

    I realize the intent of this section was to recommend local shops. Let's face it though. Many folks don't have access to decent stores, decent selection, or decent prices. The Internet is the great equalizer.

    I 100% PREFER TO SUPPORT A GOOD LOCAL BUSINESS so long as they do business fairly and are a pleasure to buy from. If they are way overpriced, not helpful, or generally bozo the clown I will gladly purchase elsewhere. Besides, the place on the Internet is "local" somewhere, right?

    Here are a few Internet places I have purchased from and wholeheartedly recommend.

    Michigan Gunslingers
    Mizzou Mule Guns
    Boresight Solutions
    Summit Gun Brokers
    SCP Firearms

    I thought I had found a shop that would be worthwhile.

    One Saturday, I decided to check out some pawn shops. Overall, it was a waste of time, but one shop was also a Glock Dealer. The owner was a young guy and he was very sociable. He told me to call him before making any on-line deals because he was willing to beat any fair deal. He also offered to to transfer guns for $25 a pop. Fair enough. He was a refreshing change from a lot of other dealers I have met.

    While I was in the shop, I noticed some complete LMT lowers. He told me the price was $400. Not that great, but I figured he would negociate. We exchanged names and I left the shop. About a week later, I decided I was going to put another AR together.

    A top-tier lower, like LMT, can run more than $400 with shipping and transfer fees, so I decided to buy locally. I called the shop.... several times at different times. No answer. So, I emailed the owner with my request and asked him to call me with a price. The next day, I got tired of waiting so I called him. "Yeah, I got your email. I haven't had time to work up a price. I'll email you later." OK, I hung up the phone and waited. No email, no call.

    I bought a BCM lower from Bravo and had them ship it to my new dealer-friend (?). According to UPS, it was supposed to be delivered on 1/14. On 1/14, at 10am, I called the shop and asked what time they normally get their shipments.... "UPS doesn't get here until after 1:30." OK.

    Around 1pm, BCM sent me an email to notify me that UPS had made the delivery at 10:54am. I headed over to the shop. I pulled up at approximately 2pm just as 3 guys were coming out. One guy locked the door. As I walked up, one of the trio said, "We're closed." I said, "What time do you close (it said 7pm on the door)... I drove all the way here to pick up a package." The one who had answered, rolled his eyes and unlocked the door.

    I told him what I was there for. The same guy asked if I had a CCW, and I told him I did. He came back with, "It'll probably take an hour or hour and a half to get you cleared." I told him I wasn't in a hurry. I gave my IDs to another guy at the phone. He started calling. The wise-guy hands me an FFL form and told me I'd have to fill it out. No pen. He had to come back to give me one. The guy on the phone had the background check before I finished the form (hour and a half?)

    By the time I left, I had an attitude. I won't go back. I'm really disappointed. Those guys just worked way too hard to lose any future sales.

    That's not the right way to build a business.

    First off, Melissa thanks for SGAmmo. Another one to add to my arsenal (so to speak). They had the best prices this month on 9 so I got a 1,000 -9 and 50 Ranger 124T +P ( Rangers hard to find inn Denver).
    Now my gunshop is called Machine Gun Tour Specialties. They found out I worked drugs in Miami in the 80's and have played the theme song from "Miami Vice" on their big screen every time I walk in now (till I told them to stop). Good bunch of guys, real mix of HSLD, International shooters and former SWAT types. Extremely friendly and all now good friends. On-site armorer who does from full auto on down. Every type of AR/M4, suppressors, Sig, Glock, high and lower end for all budgets. No bullshit type of shop. Also a stocking dealer for Blade-Tech (my fav) and Benchmade knives. I've taught with a couple of the guys and they are the same way on the range, straight up, no bullshit, here's some options. Even got a fifty they mount on the owners Hummer. Take corporate groups out for full auto shoots, and let some of us fools tag along as range crew to stay up on full auto training.

    I use SGAmmo & AmmoToGo almost exclusively for my factory ammo now. I've been using them both for a year or two without ever having one single hiccup.

    Palmetto State Armory is a good place to find mags, accessories, etc. Good people.

    i won't order from ammounitiontogo anymore. they screwed me on shipping charges on the last order, and never responded to my email about it. they've also sent me crushed boxes of ammo on two occasions. noticed they gouge prices on hard to find stuff too. shipping is seriously slow too.

    gt and sgammo has been great though.

    Interesting. I've never had an order ship more than 1-2 days after being placed and is always on my porch within a week ... coming UPS ground. Might have something to do with location, perhaps?

    I ordered a case of Winchester Ranger NATO from them yesterday and it shipped today. But, their shipping estimator was $2.25 under what the actual shipping charges were. Is that what happended to you, Don Glock?

    they're about teh same distance as sgammo, but sg is 2-3 days faster (they send out the order quicker)

    no, i put together the exact same orders on sgammo & ammotogo's sites, and sgammo was almost $10 cheaper on shipping. i sent an email they never responded to asking why shipping was so high. plus, they sent me some crushed boxes of ammo. pissed me off lol

    Don't you love it when new guys open up 2 year old threads?

    Does anyone have experience with glockstore.com? I certainly enjoy their site; many outstanding videos of disassembly/reassembly. I have an $830 order pending with them.
