    Around here we have Gander Mountain Gun World, but they are $100 high on everything in the place. If you want to hold one, they have it.

    I don’t know if they are the world’s largest but they are the largest I have seen in North Carolina, they have enough guns to send sarah brady or bloomberg into seizures just walking through the door. I will admit I did wander around for a couple hours in slack jawed wonderment at seeing so many guns in one place. They basically had four humongous rooms one each dedicated to handguns, rifles, shotguns and ammo.

    The biggest one local to us is Shoot Straight Clearwater. They're pretty big but I'm sure not nearly as big as some out there.

    every have some killer sales on firearms..Gander and Basspro are just price gouging ..

    I tend to stick to my local LGS, it's run by a great guy and he always does right by me. I have bought a Shoot Straight in Largo but only once, that is another story. Well they were in Largo, they have moved since I was there last not sure exactly where they are now but it's close to the old location.

    They're up Ulmerton past 49th street. The store is way bigger than the old location and they do have some pretty decent prices. I was a little taken when I seen my gun there for $40 less than I paid but I then took into consideration I got the CCW class included and he didn't charge me tax. So I still came out a little ahead of them. Have since went there for ammo and such though. No complaints and they have a ton of lanes on their range. You get right in usually even if it's busy. Better than Bill Jacksons in all categories IMO. They are way over priced and have a tiny range...

    I find a huge selection of firearms reasonably priced with good knowledgable help at Florida Gun Exchange. They have multiple locations and I frequent the Ormond Beach store.

    Yep on Mackey's. They advertise themselves as the worlds largest. I know it's big. And it cost me every time in walk in.

    Biggest I've ever seen is Jay's Sporting Goods in Clare, Michigan. Close second is the new Gander Mtn gun world in Saginaw. If you want hands-on, those two likely have what you're looking for.

    Biggest I've been in is here:

    Collectors Firearms

    Located in Houston, they claim to keep over 10,000 guns in stock, and I believe it!

    The Gander in Auburn has a great selection of used guns, including shotguns. My grandson's O/U Fausti was $400.

    Good prices. The new ones are high.

    I don't know about anywhere else, but there is a guy in Memphis that sells out of the back of his car. He's got a really good selection and reasonable prices. Nothing over $100.

    Probably not what you guys are talking about, huh?
