Purchasing Guns Online Vs. Your Local Gun Store

This question seems to be raised from time to time if you are searching around on any gun forums. People are starting to purchase more guns online rather then their local gun store. There are many reason why people are doing this.

The main reason people are choosing to purchase online is because of the price. Most online gun stores have a very low profit margin. This helps be competitive. Most online gun purchases are only $10-30 over cost. This beats any local gun store price by far. Local gun stores are not able to match this price because they have more bills to pay at the end of the month. Their prices need to be competitive. It will keep your customers spending money in your store and keep you from having transfers. If you have to order a gun in for a customer because you dont have it in stock, you might want to be very competitive with the price.


Another reason why people choose to purchase online is because of availability. If your local gun store does not have or cant get the gun you are looking for, you are going to purchase online. This is very common. Some people don’t want to wait 5 months until the local gun store can order it in. They consumer wants it now. If you get someone looking for a older gun this is going to be very common.


The last reason I believe consumers rather purchase online is because most gun store clerks/owners don’t understand the meaning of customer service. They treat customers with disrespect and make the environment uncomfortable. With the economy being as bad as it is, this is something I am going to stress local gun stores to change. Treating customers badly is going to hurt your business. The number one advertising in the gun industry is word of mouth. I can almost guarantee you that if you treat a customer with bad service they are going to let everyone know. Its a hobby, not a need. Your customer service better be a par, or you might just go out of business.


Online gun sales are super simple. They purchase the gun and all they got to do is go to the gun store and fill out paperwork. When the gun comes in they pick it up. That’s a very simple process. Many lawmakers are trying to change this and make it harder for gun store to sell online. I assure you we will be standing ready when they do.

Mossberg 464 SPX – Tactical 30 30 Lever Action

This has to be one of the craziest, insane, and badass toys on the market right now. The Mossberg 464 SPX tactical lever action. The gun comes with a synthetic stock, with a M4 style butt stock, triple rail forearm that allows you to adjust the cheek rest, and a butt pad that reduces the recoil. The gun has fiber optics and comes in 30 30 carbine.  This makes for one hell of a zombie slayer!






Mossberg has been known to come out with some of the craziest ideas and this my friends is exactly that. Insane! I think Mossberg is going to sell their fair share of this rifle and including the ZMB to the receiver is going to add lots of new zombie slaying customers!


You can get your hands on this lever action for just around $425 which isn’t that bad!

Affordable 1911’s

A bunch of manufactures have provided us with plenty of low cost 1911’s people can afford. With the market going up and people wages going down. We have solved the problem with introducing what we call “The affordable 1911 line”. We went through and have picked some of the better 1911’s you can easily afford. Lets jump right in.

High Standard is out of Texas and have very good reviews all of the internet. Some wish they even had two just to have one in each hand. Ammo sensitivity is its only downfall. Some have said to have problems feeding certain types of ammo. I dont see this being a major issue because after so many rounds that issue tends to go away.


The most you should pay for this gun is right around $479

Straight out of the box this pistol has a smooth finish and a great feel. When taken apart this pistol I was surprised at the machine work. It was not some “knock off”. Everything looked polished and just like any other 1911. This pistol does have some “short cuts” but nothing that can effect the overall performance of the weapon.
You can get your hands on one of these for about $400-$475 depending on which type you choose.
These companies have done a very good job in making affordable 1911’s that today’s market can afford. Although they don’t have that WOW effect visually, they can have any custom work done to them. These two guns got my approval!
