    Just curious what people who are more familiar with the DFW area consider to be the best gun shops and LE/Mil. supply stores in the area to visit?

    Jackson Armory in University Park. Lots of cool weapons and antiques. Cool little shop with very friendly people more than happy to talk to you. Mr Jackson is a class gentleman.

    Rays Sporting Goods on Singleton. Just on the other side of the new expensive bridge from I35. Lots of stuff, very very nice people.

    Well there is Cabela's and Bass Pro of course.

    Some other ones are GT Distributors, Cheaper Than Dirt (politics aside they do have a lot of firearms) McClellands, Jackson Arms, Bachman, Rays, and Military Gun Supply

    Any particular place in the DFW metroplex you'll be visiting? As you probably know, it's a pretty big area geographically, and you can drive an hour and a half from one corner of DFW to another depending on traffic.

    Aside from that and in addition to the other shops mentioned above, one other cool gun shop to visit is the Beretta Gallery in Highland Park. Granted, you need to be rich to buy some of the stuff from there, but where else can you get a glance at $100K+ shotgun beauties!

    Thanks guys, I try to do my own research usually but things like this are just hard to do on the internet if you're not personally familiar with the area. Seeing as you might find a place that looks cool, mark the location, and then when you get there they don't actually have a store front, or it's just a horrible little pawn shop.

    The only ones me and my friend are really familiar with already is GT's since that's where we buy out gear from most of the time, Cabela's and CheaperThanNoOne.

    Thanks man, I wanted to visit the Beretta Gallery but didn't get to do it last time. I'm pretty well open to anything and everything in the entire DFW area since the trip down there is made solely for eyeballing and gun/gear hunting. :cool:

    All suggestions above are great places. But NOT Cheaper Than Dirt, and no its not politics, its that there customer service sucks donkey balls. Trust me.

    ctd and bullet trap are fine if you like paying high prices and having shitty customer service. rays is decent. you already know about gt dist. another is gun gear to go in plano. as always the internet is your best bet though.

    Gun Gear To Go in Plano is worth a look. Decent selection (for a small store) and friendly staff who know their stuff.

    Exactly! However, if you have the fuel to waste, time to waste, go check it out for yourself. That way you can witness it first hand. CTD is a no go in my book.

    For military surplus, I'm surprised no one has mentioned Omaha's Surplus on White Settlement Road in Fort Worth. They're about the best military surplus store I've been too, and that's saying a lot. Next up would be Army Navy Warehouse just off I35 near the Dallas/Carrolton border. For gun stores I use Call to Arms in Denton. It's a small store and they don't have a lot of firearms on hand but will order whatever you want for a very small mark-up. It's run by a friendly Father/son team and always have coffee on the pot and a couple of good ol' boys willing to shoot the shit with you.
