Where to buy guns
If you are getting ready to make a purchase of a brand-new or used firearm, you’re always going to want to make sure that you are getting the best deal possible – and that means choosing a quality firearms dealer or trusted retail outlet/personal sales representative that you feel comfortable doing business with.
Check out all of the different options available below to find the firearm that you are looking for any condition and price point that you’re most interested in. As always, check with local law enforcement and your state’s rules and regulations regarding purchasing firearms to make sure that you are fully in compliance.
Professional gun dealers
The easiest way to purchase new or used firearms is to simply visit your local professional gun dealer or firearm shop and browse their selection. Almost all communities in the United States have a variety of different firearm shops or professional gun dealers in operation, and all of these locations will have a broad variety of new and used firearms to pick and choose from.
This is also a great approach to take if you are relatively new to the firearms community and want to make sure that you are purchasing the right firearm for you. The staff here at these smaller “mom and pop shops” are going to be very attentive to your needs, incredibly knowledgeable, and will be able to make sure that you are always pointed in the right direction before you make this kind of purchase.
Many will also be able and more than happy to take requests on specific firearms you are interested in purchasing. They’ll do everything they can to help you order exactly what you’re after and save money at the same time!
Major sporting goods stores and outlets
Most major sporting goods stores (and even some department stores today) will carry a small selection of firearms and make them available for sale. Usually these firearms are always brand-new, only from a handful of major manufacturers, and almost universally carry a pretty high price tag.
Their staff usually isn’t quite as knowledgeable as smaller operations that focus exclusively on firearms, but this is still a great place to go if you’re looking to purchase a firearm with relatively no headache or hassle.
There are different rules, regulations, and laws on the books for private sales of firearms in every state in the US and you want to make sure that you are abiding by all of those when you decide to make these kinds of purchases. This is a great way to save quite a bit of money on your firearms purchase, however, as individual sellers are usually selling previously on firearms and won’t try to gouge you on price.
