places to shop

Postby kb9zgb » Mon Jul 23, 2012 7:19 pm

This isn't for a shot gun but I expect the same places sell other items for guns. I managed to break the rear ramp type site on my rifle. What is a decent online shop gun accessory's ? the bass pro and cabellas didn't have much to offer.

If you live close they might be fine but their shipping charges are seriously outrageous. They wanted $29 to ship a $4.99 pack of targets. I called them and ask if it was a mistake and they told me no but if I order a lot of items the shipping evens out. They told me that it cost them at least that much to pay their people to pick, package and ship an order. I canceled the order and avoid them completely. Gander mountain has Free shipping every day and good prices too.

gun Parts corp is a great place for repair parts as is Brownells, i have accounts there and get most of my gun parts or accessories from them.

:huh:

I have compared items online at midway and Gander (paper targets that I go thru a LOT of for example) and 90% of the time they are less on the Gander mountian site. In the store prices seem to be a bit higher though on some items.

Brownelle's :thumbsup: .......... Midway used to be good but shipping has gotten outrageous and they don't seem to stock 1/2 the stuff they catalog. I've tried to put together a large enough order with them to justify the shipping and keep getting shut down because 1/2 the stuff I'm ordering is out of stock...... I finally gave up..............

I forgot to mention that, I was putting stuff on my "watch list" until a had a large order to "justify" their shipping robbery. then like you said half the items are backordered (or they raised the price) and they actually want to charge you extra shipping on each and every back ordered item as they ship them. No other place that I have ever ordered from charges you an extra shipping fee on every back ordered item as it ships. :mad: they have lost a lot of customers that I know of personally due to this issue. At one time their shipping was fair and competitive and I did a lot of business with them.

Gander might have good prices here and there for shooting supplies, but their decoy, blind, big game, optics, and boating equipment prices are high. The free shipping helps bring the price down if you can find something on sale though. Their retail store pricing is horrible. I don't know how they can keep a store open in Fargo with Fleet Farm and Scheels both selling name brand sporting goods for cheaper just down the road. Gander was great when they were just a mail order catalog. Seemed like they were always $10 cheaper than cabelas was.

within driving distance I have at least 5 or 6 Gander mountian stores, Bass Pro and Cabelas and they are building another Cabelas just north of me. they all seem to battle each other for price and Cabelas always seems to be the highest of the 3. I but Decoys on Craigs list at about 1/4 price of new from guys that tried it and never did it again. We also have Dunhams and dicks and their prices are higher than any other palce around me. I get most of my sporting goods online, just wait for the right sale and the free shipping. Patience :biggrin:
