    I've purchased from them several times, you might want to do a search in our 'rate retail transactions' forum more more info.

    I ordered an EOTech XPS 2 a couple of weeks ago. Price was ~$30 cheaper than the best local price, with no tax and free shipping on top of that. Order took about 3 business days to get here. No complaints at all -- will definitely order more from them.

    Don't forget to search for coupon codes for them. You can save 5-10% usually in addition to their low prices. They are an outstanding vendor. I have bought tons from them.

    I ordered a holster from them a couple weeks back, and they processed the order. Then I got an email saying it was out of stock. I immediately canceled and received an apologetic email from them saying my order was canceled. A week or so later they send me a shipping notice and charge me for it. When I emailed them back they said there was "no record" of my canceling the order. They agreed to take it back but I have to do all the foot work. Not good service in my book. Perhaps I just had bad luck.

    :(

    My wife purchased Crimson Trace laser grips last year from Optics Planet for my Smith 642. One of the best birthday gifts I ever got. She said she received them in three days. Good price too.

    If the prices everyone is talking about are considered good, you might want to check out GunShopFinder.com Online Store. Nowhere near the number of items, but prices are as good or better than what's been mentioned, service is very personal, and shipping is usually three-day as well. Very good customer reviews on ResellerRatings, too.

    Only one transaction. Ordered the mount & scope to scout scope a Mosin. I had it in 3 days. I remember being amazed that it was sitting on my porch when I came home from work. First thought was: "Wife bought some other crap off e-bay or amazon!" When I saw it was for me I did a little jig of joy and had it mounted up 45 minutes later.

    Would not hesitate to order from them again.

    Just One Shot, I'm curious. In your first post you asked about Optics Planet because their prices were lower and they offered free shipping. Did you think it might be something that's too good to be true? IOW, a ripoff?

    I purchased an Eotech from them about a year ago. They had the best price and it only took a few days to receive it. I would definitely buy from them again.

    This is what I personnaly do-

    Find what I want
    Call ahead to make sure its in stock(CS has always been friendly with me)
    Place my order online

    Its simple, its easy, and I have never had any issues! :D

    The only issue that I have ever had is when I ordered and selected 2 day shipping. Good prices, good service, but that two day ship option never works out for me. Maybe I just have the worst timing in the world.

    I just wanted to know if they were the type of co. that would take your order then string you along because they didn't have it in stock. Or, if there were any other negative issues that I hadn't thought of. You never know what you can find out about a co. until you ask.

    the only issue I have with them is sometimes stuff is out of stock and their website wont tell you. I have had to wait several weeks to a month for an order to be completed on an out of stock item. But it is legit.
