I have purchased three guns through Davidson's Gallery of Guns. I like their "Gun Genie." They have a few exclusive models. Get a free lifetime warranty, not sure what it is or how you use it, but I will continue to use their "Gun Genie." Simple, make a small down-payment and then 2 or 3 days later, the guns shows up at the LGS you picked.

When I use Gun Genie I get eight quotes from a radius of about 50 miles. The vary by about $30.00 or so.

yeah from what i have seen the little gun store closest to me is about the 3rd cheapest usually bout 20$ more then the cheapest but the cheapest is about 45miles away and anyway would rather give the money to the small town gun store then head to the city and give it to them....if i dont use the small town store when they are close on price then i would have no one to be mad at but myself if they go out of business when i need shells or whatever and dont want to drive 50 miles for them

You always have to wait the 3 days for transfer?

Is this due to state law or are you consistently delayed by NICS? I would find it very strange if I was delayed every time.

Congrats on the new gun, by the way - pics or it didn't happen

No, any delay, aside from waiting periods like we have here in California, is for shipping. I believe it takes the LGS 2 or 3 days to get the gun from the distributor, which is Davidson's.

i am delayed consistently by nics.. hadnt bought a gun for a few yrs and last week i was about 100 or so miles from home taking the wife to a friends and was out screwing around while wife was visiting. at the gun shop made a impulse purchase on a rossi 3 in 1. 20g 22lr 243 did paperwork and the lady said delayed. **** forgot they always make me wait. told lady if they hadnt called by 5 to forget sale, she didnt have prob and understood. called her up today just to find out if they had ever come back with response she said no but if i still wanted she could sell now as it was after 3days. only reason i can think of is that i work in nuke plants sometimes in my role as pipefitter and i have to get a security check everytime i do that.

Oh, yeah, sometimes if you have any kind of security clearance things can get gummed up. Dunno if it wold be worth the effort, but would getting a unique ID # help at all?

I got delayed for my first 2 pistol buys, but then never again since.

I've made several that were quoting the best price at that time. So the transactions were flawless and absent an FFL fee. However, 90% of the time I have found they are quite over priced IMO. If you get a good buy there go for it!

well took the mossberg out this morning with my 6yr old. its his bday present coming up thursday but im leaving town for a few weeks for work so gave it early so we could shoot it. did a minor cleaning last night before shooting. we put about 75rds through it but near the end it was fte several times so gonna have to do a better cleaning other then that it was a fun little gun to shoot. had a hell of a time getting it zeroed in at about 15yds. also got my parts in for my stevens 87a put then in before we went out. man that 87a is a great gun to shoot and dead on nuts accurate. anyway watching my boy shoot that gun made my year. the smile on his face was priceless. little barrel heavy for him but brought along a gun rest, also known as a folding sawhorse lol

That's absolutely priceless to see Dad passing along the tradition of our great sport to his youngster! And later on as the little guy grows older (don't blink as they say or you'll miss it ) I am sure you'll explain the importance of the Founding Fathers creation of the Second Amendment and its historical/contemporary importance.

Sounds like a wonderful weekend indeed.

-Cheers

dont i know it about the blinking. hes the youngest of four my oldest is 21 and it took the 4th child to get a boy. tried to get the girls interested but never could...made every one of them learn about guns so they knew enough to handle them if needed but could never get them interested in shooting

I know what you mean with the girls in particular. The firearms bug seems to be 'biting' more and more females than ever, but I still find it to be hit and miss. You Tube would have you believe that all the females are shooting, but at least both personally and at the ranges I visit, it's still not the case (but we're making progress for sure!).

-Cheers
