I figure the local country gun shop is the best place. Assuming it's owned by a member of the community.

Your friend who has 100s of guns and is willing to do a private sale is the best place.

[–] SirSighAlot 0 points 1 point (+1|-0) ago 

That's what I was thinking.

Except that a big place will have a larger selection. A small local place is going to have a smaller more rigid selection. This may or may not matter to you depending on what you're looking for.

bigger selection

lol yeah of piece of shit guns.

[–] watch_listed 0 points 1 point (+1|-0) ago 

Smaller places are probably more willing to call their distributor if you want something special or do an FFL transfer than a large chain.

Find a local gun smith.

We had a neighbor get seriously hurt in an accident and we arranged for a raffle of two guns. Our gun smith donated both towards the cause and didn't even know them.

Oh, and the day you buy is the day you take home. No masks worn.

Fuck big conglomerates.

I was at my local Bass Pro Shops half an hour ago, statewide mask order is in effect but none of this wristband bullshit.

And you bought a firearm and completed your background check?

[–] BentAxel 0 points 1 point (+1|-0) ago 

Promise I will never. I haven't yet, hadn't planned on it in the future. We have a few locally owned small businesses.

That's my normal plan, but I started saving up for a Tikka before every hipster decided it was "cool," When I finally had enough I spent a month searching for anybody who could get one and Cabela's/Bass Pro was the only one that could. I wouldn't do it again.

[–] MrPim 0 points 1 point (+1|-0) ago 

I didn't have to do any of that wristband shit at Cabellas here. I ordered online, when it arrived I went to the store, did a background and got my gun. They had a Masks sign on their door, so I put one on since I wanted my shit. When I went in I saw people w/o, so I took mine off, no one said a thing. I guess it depends on state and store maybe, but I had no problems here. Well, I had to wait at the counter for a staff, because that seemed understaffed, but whatever.

these things always come down to the idiots standing in front of you. either obstructionists.. or they can think for themselves and shouldnt be hard to handle. if theyre obstructionists just over agree with everything they say. they wont know what to do.

I think maybe you replied to the wrong post, because I have no idea what you're talking about in my comment.

If you aren’t already buying 80% complete lower receivers, you aren’t an American patriot. Fuck the government. We all have the 2nd amendment right to bear arms. Build your own gun and then make sure you “register it with the ATF”.

God and they keep posting sales that take 3 months to 'in processing' then cancel. Their in-stock shit is just a best guess. I don't know if their inventory system has always sucked major ass or if it's just crashed hard due to demand, but it's clear to everyone buying that cabela/bps is not up to the task.

[–] FreeinTX ago 

Just get one from your drug dealer. They don't do backgrounds checks and won't tell anyone you have it.

[–] AnotherGrayman ago 

This sounds great, til the police end up with your weapon after a self-defense shooting and you have to explain why the ballistics match up with five other killings.

[–] FreeinTX ago 

Just tell 'em that you bought it at a gun show from some dude.
