    I'm starting to work on shops in Georgia while I wait to call back other shops in the Northeast.

    Does anyone have any recommendations on good GA shops?

    From other threads, I found suggestions for Mack's, Sandfly, Pannells, Ed's Gun & Tackle, Hot Shots, Franklin (good and bad comments), and Bull's Eye Indoor Range and Gun Shop.

    What other good shops am I missing?

    Thanks for any replies.

    GA marksman. I really like Bernie's. Bernie is a great guy, always no matter how busy he is makes a point to chew the fat with you for a minute. I've known him forever and send many people his way. Laughs, get him to talk about his time a Secret Service agent in the Phillipines.

    Shuler's Deer Cooler ( 3705 Old Cornelia Hwy, Gainseville, 30507) is pretty good, as well as Satterfields

    Yeah, Shuler's and Satterfield's are good ones. Also there's Smoky Mtn Trader on the square in Cleveland. Some good guys there.

    There's a shop just north of Athens, in Hull, called Georgia Outdoor Sports. Their goal is to put Franklin's out of business (and I wish they would). They don't have all the dust-covered inventory that Franklin's does, but they also don't have the insider-good-ole'-boy atmosphere, either.

    They're the folks I bought my S&W 66 F-comp from for $503.00. :D

    HotShots

    Here's another vote for HotShots in Smryna. Nice group of guys, good prices.

    Raistlin - I've purchased a lot of stuff from Ga Outdoor Sports, but not yet a firearm. Their "sticker" prices beat Franklins, but are still a bit on the high side compared to a lot of other shops. Did you have to negotiate much for yours? I do appreciate the helpful attitudes at Ga Outdoors; a refreshing change from Franklins.

    True, but I go to shops (relatively) near my home...


    Not really. That's an amusing story in and of itself - if you're curious, I'll PM you about it.

    There is also Piedmont Outdoors on I20 E of Atlanta around Covington. It pays to look in there oncet in a while.

    Pannell's is a great neighborhood shop, but on-site selection is a bit limited. They can get almost anything overnight, though, and several times found me a better price on a gun than I expected. Class act all around.

    Hot Shots is also a great shop. TONS of guns for rental, and the cleanest indoor range I've ever seen. Nice folks, too.

    Ed's....meh. They'll let anybody shoot, and I mean ANYBODY. I've seen some truly awful gun handling there, once enough to seriously fear for my safety. Selection is pawn-shop at best, and prices are high for what they offer.

    Man, talk about a "target-rich" thread! Thanks for the replies.

    Seems to be more shops in GA than in neighboring states. That's something to keep in mind---if I'm ever able to retire. ;)

    Shameless plug: For those who may be near (or pass through) the Athens area, a range named the Firing Lane is undergoing management and operations changes. I don't know all the gory details, but the old manager is definitely on the way out, and the owner is taking control. They've made several touch-up changes already, and are going to begin selling guns again (don't know exactly when). Worth a look if you haven't been there in a while.

    ...and yes, I am a member...:D

    I'd say Adventure Outdoors. They are the biggest gun shop I have been to in Atlanta. They are located on South Cobb Dr in Marietta.

    GA Cunshops...

    When I lived in Ft. Oglethorpe, I visited the Georgia Gun Trader in Ringgold quite a lot...

    Knowledgeable and friendly staff and good prices... :)
