    ok so heres the score.
    i am getting my girl into shooting.

    she lives in San Antonio.

    This weekend we are going to go look and guns and see what kindof weapon fits ehr hand and blah blah blah ( i told her its like shoe shopping)
    so ive got a week to hammer out an agenda to get around and check out the best shops withthe best selection. not nessecarily the best prices, becasue we will probably wait and check out the next saxet show.
    however places with better prices should probably get higher on the list.
    im in new braunfels and dont find myself in san antonio to often, so help me out guys! (and gals)

    thanks!

    I would go to Dury's Gun shop in San Antonio. They are very knowledgable in regards to what options a gun needs to have for the applications you are looking for. Once you get an idea on what you want, then I would look on www.gunbroker.com for the gun and research pricing. I have bought many firearms from this site and never had any issues. Just take in mind that you have to get a FFL transfers ($35) and shipping including in the price. Gun shows are another option as you mentioned, just buy from a repetable seller. My 2 cents...

    1. Dury's
    2. The Powderhorn
    3. Hoguns
    4. Nagles

    In all honesty, if you can't find what you want at the above shops, you don't need it!<G>

    More importantly....stay AWAY from:

    1. Texas Guns (on Bandera Rd. in Leon Valley)
     
  5. Texas Bulldog

    Sorda agree... you need to go to Powderhorn HoGuns and Nagles to find everything... nothing all in 1 spot.

    And Texas Guns... holy crap can you say expensive!..

    I went to buy a Ruger LCP base model and they want 480 for it :crazy-1: and XDm 9mm base model for $789 :mad0025:

    Crazy expensive... and their range is worse :rofl:

    IMO, Dury's, The Powderhorn an' Hoguns are 3 of the best in the city. Nagles is good, but you gotta work for "deals" harder. Thing is, they'll have things you just won't find anywhere else, so if nothing else it's a cool place to visit!

    I've sat in Texas Guns and listened to 'em BS customers so bad I was worried 'bout gettin' hit by the lightning bolt! High prices AND they'll lie to a customer in a heartbeat, IMO.

    I've bought from Durys before. Seem like good folk, but they too have an overhead to meet. Don't overlook Academy either, sometimes you'll be surprised at the prices.

    If your looking for a 9mm, LNIB, PM me about my M&P9.

    Academy can have deals I reckon.....but to me, it's kinda like goin' to a tire shop to buy breakfast - they may have something to eat, but....
