    I've purchased from sellers on GunBroker and had pretty good luck. One guy a few years ago was really slow to ship (I think he ordered the rifle after I won the auction). That's the only issues I've had with new guns. Used guns from private sellers tend to vary greatly fom seller to seller. The biggest issue I've had w/ buying used via internet is the sellers discription of condition. Never been scamed (yet).

    Guns America seems to have some of the highest online prices around for whatever reason. Just shop carefully. Personally I've never found a deal on GA I couldn't beat somewhere else.

    I'm in SW Ohio around Dayton.
    I don't know how far north you are but Bill Goodmans is in Dayton May 14-15th.
    I've had good luck buying/selling at the shows.

    BTW... what are you looking for? There's alot of good firearms from good people for sale here.

    Guns America is home to phishers and thieves.

    Some of the phone numbers listed by "sellers" go to porn lines.

    Looking to buy a Ruger mini 14 and some of the prices I've seen have the gun shop prices beat.
