    Do you buy over the Internet?

    How many here feel comfortable buying a Handgun, Rifle or Shotgun over the Internet?

    Would you buy from GunsAmerica - Guns - Guns For Sale Classifieds & Auctions B"H - Guns For Sale & Gun Auctions B"H
    Would you buy from Guns - Online Gun Auction - Guns at GunBroker.com
    Would you buy guns, ammo or supplies from any other Internet source?

    This is not a survey, just an informal inquiry.

    I haven't yet made a non-internet purchase. It is the best way to get a deal, IMO.

    I've bought and sold via gun broker. I've done limited purchasing and some selling via this forum too, all with no problems. But, like anything else, some prudent precautions must be taken.

    I've bought through Gunbroker, never had a problem.
    Not always firearms, also magazines and accessories.

    I bought over Guns America from a gun shop in TN with no problem at all. They shipped it to a local NY FFL, I paid $25 for the transfer fee and pick up the pistol. It was smooth and simple and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

    I've bought several online. Usually I will only buy new, but I have bought used when looking for a particular firearm.
    So far I have only run into two problems...a hurricane slowed down shipping on a few parts for a shotgun, and a manufacturer's defect but Ruger is taking care of it.
    Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws... serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man - Cesare Beccaria

    Bought one of my carry guns on Gun Broker. My M&P 340, in .38/.357. Bought it from an Army Capt. Great transaction, just gotta make sure what youare getting.
