    What are your favorite tactical/guns & accessories websites?

    Let's give credit where credit is due!

    My favorite online shopping is:

    Budsgunshop.com
    Botachtactical.com
    cheaperthandirt.com

    Help folks out there get the best bang for their buck!

    Guns, Ammo, Optics, Knives, Military Surplus, Magazines....

    Share where you've had great deals and would recommend others to shop.

    Insights about, customer service, shipping, and quality are encouraged.

    It seems like I get the best buys at local shops - especially when shipping is considered. If I can't find it locally, then it usually comes from Midway.

    I used to be a cheaperthandirt customer. They did some really obscene gouging and now I'm kinda soured on them.

    I like Natchez

    if you are into the Ebay style. Have found some great deals there!!

    Bought a few low price 1911's and supplies so not too much experience but so far so good. Customer service is directly related to the guy you are dealing with - buying or selling.

    Their ammo prices are pretty outrageous, but I get a lot of my non-ammo stuff there, too.

    Shopping isn't BUYING.

    Window shopping = Gunbroker, Simpson Ltd, Collectors Firearms.

    Buying stuff = Midway, Brownell's, I have used Davidson's to find and buy a new firearm.

    I agree, cheaper than dirt is great for random accessories like, pepper spray, knives, and different tactical products.

    I like: Classic Arms, CDNN, Aim Surplus, Centerfire Systems and Gunbroker.com I have personally purchased from Classic, CDNN, Aim and Centerfire. I sold a rifle on Gunbroker.

    I check Classic Arms and Aim Surplus regularly as well as Gunbroker. Most recent purchase from CDNN.

    Midway U.S.A.

    Has alot better shipping prices than Cheaper Than Dirt !
    I used to buy alot of accessories from C.T.D. until a found out that for normal shipping they charge a minimum of $9 .Whereas Midway charges $6.

    That's a difference of $3 .....%50 percent more ?!?! :eek:

    Don't laugh at me!!!! But I do buy from LA Police Gear and CountyComm.
    Don't laugh!!!

    BTW, I just got a sub to the shotgun news. I don't understand some of it. Do you have to be an FFL for some of that stuff? Can I go to an FFL and have them order something out of there for me?
    Sorry for the dumb question.
