Please advise: Favorite online dealers

After doing a lot of phone calls to dealers in my area I have found that it is tough to get some of the items I have on my wish list.
Does anyone here have any competitively priced, reliable online favorite sites?

Thanks Much for any ideas.

So far, I only am familiar with two: Cheaper than Dirt and Buds'

Damascusgunshop.com is excellent if you're looking for CZ firearms.

Budsgunshop.com is one of the most respected. I don't know if they carry what you want.

duckcreekarmory.com in Iowa is one of my favorites. I bought my SIG 1911 from them and my Kahr CW9 (which I sold after I shot it)

Palmetto State Armory
http://palmettostatearmory.com/index.php/
I have no personal experience with them but they seem to have some good deals.

They actually have the GSG 1911 .22 you want on sale right now for $270.

Thanks to all of you. This definitely helps me.

One final question is does anyone know of dealers who have a fairly extensive selection of pistols that is a brick and mortar store in any of the following MD counties:
Frederick
Washington
Montgomery
Baltimore

Buds is my favorite.

Also a fan of Davidson's gallery of guns (only site I know of where you can get a true total price quote including insuraxe and local FFL fees)

Another good one is CDNN, although the are more of a magazine seller than online

Sorry, you need to be more specific on your needs. Do you want guns only, parts, sights, accessories, handloading equipment, etc. etc.

I'm a big fan of Bud's Gun Shop, having made 10-12 purchases from them in the past couple years.

I like SGAmmo.com and Ammoman.com for ammunition (what little I buy since I reload most everything but .22), both have free or reasonable shipping costs.

Stay AWAY from Lucky Gunner on ammo. I have spent a TON of money with them but with the recent ammo 'issue/shortage/panic' they are TERRIBLE. They took my money 2 weeks ago and can't, won't ship nor answer their phones any longer. Now it is ALL "Leave a message" type business but they don't call back.

Too bad they used to be a good company.

PSA-Good, but only CS is by email. Shipping is slow due to demand.

Midway- good, but high prices, high shipping and weird back order policies leave me wanting better.

Brownells - Good, but minimal discounted product. Super on the phone!

Sinclair Intl - Same as Brownells.

Buds - good, but weird slow shipping timing and cash discount is not as good of price as it should be.

Powder Valley - SUPER A+ company in everyway. Wish shipping costs were shown!

Widners - good at times

Graf's - good when they have your deal

Midsouth - Good

Gunstop - Good

Core15 - limited product line, but good to me.

Cabela's - Good. Sometimes free shipping. Limited shooting/reloading/ammo inventory, but good when they have what you want.

Midwest Industries - Good. Loy's of AR parts.


In the end, they all take my money and have things I want. All could use better web site organization and pictures.
