    Federal Way Discount Guns is my favorite......guys are very funny and friendly, and the prices are EXTREMELY competitive. NIB GLOCKs save for G20/21/30/36 are $489, and their rifle/shotgun selection is quite diverse. Bullseye in Tacoma is an excellent store too, but their prices on GLOCKs at least aren't terribly close to FWDG. Those are about the only two places I go with any regularity for firearms, though I'll stop at Welcher's and LEED in Tacoma for little stuff (the latter sells new firearms to LE only because of the deal w/ the mfg, but the guy is very nice, very pro-2A, and is a regular at the gun shows).

    For rifles, there's a great shop on Lake City Way, in Seattle. I can't remember the name of it, but it's down around 100th NE or something. It's really shady looking on the outside, but inside it's a really good rifle shop.

    For handguns, I didn't find anything I liked in Seattle. Wades in Bellevue had a good selection, but their pricing wasn't that competitive. There's a great place near Wades, though, called Survival Arms. It's a little whole in the wall place right on Northup Way near Wades, but it's really a great place.

    I've heard of another good place on the north end of Seattle, on Lake City, but I haven't been there to check it out.

    If you want second hand firearms, Buds Gun Shop on Highway 99 is good, but that place really...I don't know. I didn't trust it one bit. Just seemed like something was very shady about them in general. They didn't rub me the right way.

    In addition to Wades and Survival Arms, there is also Ben's Pawn (Renton) and Bear Arms (Kent). I have bought from both in the past and have been very pleased.

    Survival Arms is where we got my Blackhawk Holster from, the guys there were quite nice and let me try out several holsters and borrow a 220 to stick into the holsters. I don't know about their pricing but I enjoyed the way they treated me. There was another gun shop a block away but I can't think of it's name now.

    My friend lives nearby so I will have to check more of those stores when I go back. It did make me cry when I compared the price for guns to what we pay......sigh.

    If you don't mind the 'big box stores' the Sportsmans Wearhouse has quite the selection of pistols and rifles. If for nothing else you can see / handle several different makes / cals at the same time. They carry all you mentioned and more.

    See, I live in the San Juan Islands. No stores here. It's a whole-day expedition to get to the mainland and hit 1-2 stores, so I'm trying to optimize my experience.

    As I remember, therer was a public range/shop in Tacoma, just don't remember it's name. I worked at Warshall's on 1st and Madson in Seattle some 9 yrs ago, and there was another small shop along side the store, but not sure it's still there...........hope this helps........

    Modern Firearms LLC. 1418 5th st., Marysville, Wa.
    DJ's Loan and Sports, 10412 Beardslee Blvd. Bothell Wa.
    Adventure Sports, 23329 Hwy 99 Edmonds.
    Lynwood Gun and Ammunition. 20829 Hy 99.

    I haven't been to all of these but it would make a days trip worthwhile, You could start at Marysville and work your way south on hwy 99 and end up at the shop in Bothell, they buy a lot of antique and used firearms as well as having new ones. Then if you had time you could jump over to 405 and bo to bellvue to visit Wades Eastside Guns, 13570 Bellevue Redmond Rd. Bellvue and then go to Survival Arms, 13433 NE 20th st.

    Take a lot of money and Make a trip of it.

    I bought my last gun at Survival Arms in Bellevue.

    They beat any other prices locally (Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland). I would buy from them again.
