    Online purchase?

    I have a friend who is looking to purchase a firearm online. He is overseas with the military and wants t purchase one online and have it delivered to his dad for him to get when he returns. He knows all about the ffl to ffl stuff, he has his purchase permits in order, etc... I have purchased from gunbroker and budsgunshop, but what are some other good reputable online sales sites/online gun shops, preferably, non-auction sites since he doesn't always have access to a computer in order to watch the auction. Thanks for your help.
    Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.

    I bought from Summit Gun Broker and I had a nice deal. I don't think he has a secure site but maybe you can call him and arrange something. He only does internet business.
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    Gunsamerica is supposed to be another good one, although I've never gotten anything through them.

    Try TopGun here in Missouri. I have bought from them and their prices are reasonable.

    I think this would be a straw purchase since forms would have to be filled out and signed by his Dad. IMO it would be better to buy it or order it from a local ffl holder near his dad and have them hold it until he gets home.

    I agree that is the best option.
