    I really like Numrich (Gun Parts Inc.) for their parts and accessories. Great service, great return policy, and a good sense of humor (they wrap their shipped items in The New York Times).

    Another nod to RMR. Their quality, prices, service and shipping times are fantastic.

    I own 2 Dan Wessons, which have been great. I had a couple of questions after buying my first one and the rep I spoke to took his time in answering my questions and I never felt rushed, which was refreshing.

    I picked up a Wilson Combat EDC X9 a little while ago. I had the same experience with the rep I spoke to as I did with Dan Wesson, that they wanted to make sure all my questions were answered and that I was happy with their products and service.

    PSA has its shortcomings but they are, and will continue to be my first stop when looking for things. They made a point of making guns more affordable and available to the masses.

    Anderson Rifles and Ruger both get nods as well for going out of their ways to provide a solid product at a very reasonable price.

    I like that you put service in front of deals. I have been in so many stores where to cut corners they hire second rate sales/customer service people so they can pay second rate salaries. It's bothersome when I go into a business and ask questions only to discover that the people "assisting" me know less than I do about a particular thing. Not that I'm an all over expert, but I'm asking questions because I don't know the answer and apparently neither does anyone on their sales force.

    I like a good deal as much as the next person, but I will pay a few extra dollars to have someone with knowledge and customer service ability assist me.

    Midsouth Shooters Supply. I used to live 5 minutes from their front door and spent a bit of money there for reloading supplies. They also handle gun transfers for $25. The counter guys are good guys, friendly, helpful and will spend time talking about guns if business is slow.

    I will elaborate just a tad on a couple of the LGS, online is pretty much straight CS and it generally tends to be less pressured and not aggressive from the sites I've used.

    Green Top is pretty well known if you're on the east coast. There staff is friendly and fairly knowledgeable. The lack of sales pressure is what's beautiful. You will be asked every few minutes by a different person if you're doing ok if you're looking at guns anywhere in the store. But if you tell them you're just browsing the sales folks acknowledge and move on.

    Dances is a much smaller store and while a great place the thing that kind of just bugs me is there sales folks that are trying to sell to current or potential CCW customers. They tend to say things that really shouldn't be said or are just inaccurate. I dont think they do it intentionally I just think there is a overwhelming lack of info in regards to CCW and use of force. Aside from that they seem to be good folk.


    The online stores I've dealt with it's all about service, knowledge of parts being discussed and how prompt I receive them. In all cases the sites I mentioned have been nothing less then adequate and most more than so.



    So theres my "expansion" on my previous post.
