Default Reliable FFL?

GAT Guns won't accept new guns, so I'll have to use someone else.

R Guns is close by but have only been in there 1 time. Don't know much about those guys.

Just want somewhere close to my house in Carpentersville that will receive a new gun.

Recommendations please. Thanks.

What you mean GAT Guns will only accept new guns? Only new guns brought through them?

I think he is saying that will not accept new guns as a transfer. As in if I were to buy a gun from Buds, and need a transfer, they would not do it. I know a couple places I tried at first did not want to do the transfer either, because they wanted to sell me the gun for the extra $70 I would have been saving.

GAT will only receive a new gun if they can't order it.

I've never heard of that and it's pretty shitty on GATs part. I have done about 10 FFLs with Gun Doctor in Roselle, all on new guns.

GAT doesn't have the customer in mind for that type of thing obviously.

these fucking jews, it used to be just charging you 50 or more to transfer in (we'll charge you double the average because your not buying from us). Then you need to spend double range time if you want to shoot a rifle/pistol. I'll probably share my disgust and exclusively use on-target for range time.

There's so many naive people these days, they all flood into GAT and pay whatever they ask. They don't give a fuck.

Rinks is 75, but their range is cheap. Probably the reason I go there tbh.

I used to buy from GAT years ago when they were mostly decent.
But after Obama got elected and during the big rush on guns, I was sickened to see all the price gouging that they engaged in.

$45 for a box of ammo that normally cost $15.
$80 for a magazine that normally cost $28.

A few years ago I went to buy a S&W Shield from them and they wanted $550. That was it, I never went back.

I only deal with private gun dealers from now on.

Marengo Guns. They do transfers for $10-$20. Problem solved.

Dan is great, but another great FFL is

Trident custom coating 224 484 8396 in east dundee. Just tell Ty that Jeff from Land Rover sent you.

That's the only time I heard it about it trying to be robbed. The upstanding citizens got arrested right away.

And Marengo Guns is right on Rt 20 about 10-15 minutes North of Big Timber. Not a sketchy area by any means.

They usually have good sales on some guns and that's usually my goto for transfers.

Dude, I remember the days of having to go to a gun store. Screw that. I get treated like a punk everytime I step into one.

If I want to "touch a gun" I'll buy it online for $100-200 cheaper, have my FFL transfer it for $20. If I don't like it, I'll probably still make money selling it used!

Local Gun shops aren't going to last very much longer.

I go every so often when I want to take a look at something. When it comes to rifles, I sell the parts (including lowers and complete rifles). Only thing I have to do with selling a serialized product is have it transferred through a FFL of the buyers choice.

But I do like Marengo Guns. I actually bought my handguns through them and with good pricing that was hard to beat.
