Gun Shopping: Online Vs. Local: https://youtu.be/Bbv_92oRODI
Yeah your local gun stores are going to be over priced , it is a good idea
like you stated to go in person and check out the gun out and even possibly
go shoot it at a Range because you won’t be able to do that shopping online
now you can get a better price online . You could check out the pistol at a
local store have a feel for it , then buy it online you will definitely get
a better price… another thing is gun shows have great prices aswell
sometimes you can even negotiate prices ..
Man in San Antonio I’d say 70% of local mom and pops are overpriced. Lone
star handgun and the powderhorn are good. Nagiels and Texas guns are ok.
But my problem is the real small shops. Not because of prices its their
attitude. Its like they’re doing you a favor.
The problem with most gun stores is they don’t have what your looking for
and not all gun stores have good customer service, people,who usually have
bad experiences with local gun stores rather purchase online.
brother, is that a microwave oven on your work bench? you snacking????
My No. 1 local shop has a great selection. I usually check out the gun at
the store, handle it and get a feel for it. Then I will comparative shop
on-line. As I don’t have a dealer license I have to pay a fee for
delivering through the shop. Nice vid and thanks! NMS
Yeah, storefronts are going to be a little more expensive, they have
overheads to pay for and then online stores can give u. Better price but
like u said you have to factor in transfer fees and shipping.
Usually the best prices are with small home based FFLs , no overhead to
factor in and no transfer fees. They won’t always have the amount of stock
that storefronts have but their pricing Is usually better.
PS bro, this is not a sales pitch, lol
Great advice! Be smart, support your local shop when it makes cents
Agreed! Yes, it does seem that you can get better prices on line.
Sometimes the price difference if $10-20 and sometimes it’s $100+.
If we don’t support the local gun shops in Hawaii, we won’t have any local
gun shops in Hawaii. Living on a remote island in the middle of the Pacific
ocean does present limitations so I don’t mind being charged a slightly
more to help keep the shop open. I do haggle sometimes…
I bought my last 5 guns online so with the money I save it all me to buy
ammo I needed.
I always support my gun shops. Great topic
yeah man! I like to support local as much as possible. but sometimes they
just can’t compete with crazy low online prices. I’ve only bought a few
guns online and it’s usually stuff that cannot be found locally or prices
that are too good to be true!
Great video topic JH6. I must admit im guilty. I tend to buy just about
everything online. On average I typically save about 20-30% by purchasing
online. 100 rounds of 9mm online runs me around $22. At Wal-Mart after tax
im looking at $28. Gun prices in local shops here are outrageous. 499-550
for Springfield XDs. ONLINE $399. M&P Shield $419 vs $340. I could go on
and on. I just ordered a benchmade knife for $120. Same knife at Gander
Mountain was $185. I cant be ballin on a budget shopping retail. Lol
Im all for supporting local stores even if they are a little pricier as
long as it’s not too overpriced, and for a few reasons.. 1, you can get a
good feel for the firearm right there and know if you like it, 2, if you
have a problem with it, it’s easier to go back to the local guy and get
assistance with repair on it and they are more willing to help you if you
purchased from them, 3, We have to keep the small businesses going..
without them it will be a monopoly of big corporations who are into it only
for the $ and not caring for their customers. Great video!!
Great topic man. I try to support local shops as much as possible and it
really has worked out. Having a good rapport with the owners and staff
leads to deals and great service. I typically won’t buy a gun online
because photos aren’t always accurate.
No doubt, bro – you definitely have to know the true market price when
you’re shopping for guns.
Ive done much of both and really dont have a preference
i do my best to buy local but sometimes you just can’t beat the online
prices, Great topic JH6
