    Hello.

    Does anybody know a good gun shop in Houston (Katy) area? Looking for someplace knowledgable and helpful I can develop a relationship with. I'm looking, over the next months (or year or so) to own a shotgun and 2 handguns.

    Carters Country on the Katy freeway, just outside the loop is a good start.

    Fountain Firearms on Hwy 6, south of I-10 has a good selection.

    American Shooting Center has a gun store attached for when you get the guns.

    Bass Pro Shops in in the Katy Mills Mall.

    Collectors Firearms is probably the best stocked in the City, but a little farther to drive.

    More driving, but still on the North and West quadrant of town, there is Jim Pruett's Guns and Ammo.

    There are a bunch of Academy's around town, they have revolvers, pistols, hunting rifles, shotguns and for now some AR stuff. Just not as wide a selection as the other specialty stores have.

    We also have three or so Gander Mountains, one out 290.

    Gun Show in Conroe this weekend, but that is a little bit of a ride from the Katy area, if you want to browse around. Just about 2 weekends of every month there is a show in the Houston area, and a lot of the same vendors frequent regularly. Not that hard to strike up a relationship with those guys.

    Houston area has a lot of FFL's that are cheap to do business with. You can expect to pay between $20=$25 for the transfer if you mail order, or get your guns from an auction site. (Sorry to all you folks in CA, I know that is unbelievably cheap to you folks :) )

    I know there are a few more, but these are the best I have for now.



    Good Luck and welcome to the board.

    So Where do you go?

    So, Flash, where do you go?

    I need a place that's knowledgeable, helpful, with resources (nearby ranges, classes, etcetera)
