Your local gun shop not cutting it with their selection or price? Buy your guns online! We cover our personal favorites where we buy most of our firearms.

    And remember…it will not ship directly to your house without a background check.  

    You’ll have to ship to your local shop/dealer with an FFL (Federal Firearms License) and follow the normal procedure for your city/state.

    Best Online Gun Stores

    1. Palmetto State Armory: Low Prices & In-Stock

    What might be the go-to nowaways…

    Yes, we love PSA’s AR-15s…as well as their other guns. Link to our PSA Review Section.

    PSA 5.56 Uppers
    PSA 5.56 Uppers

    But did you know Palmetto State Armory now carries tons of popular handguns and rifles too?

    It looks like they get all the new guns right on time.

    And sometimes there’s really really good deals on older (but still great) stuff.  My guess is they buy a whole bunch of one thing at a time and pass on the savings.

    2. Brownells: The Big Store


    Brownells is my go-to for firearm accessories and specific tools.  But it’s also one of my favorites for actual firearms.  They have almost all of the popular handguns and rifles in stock and ready to go.

    Prices are near MSRP but non-gouged but you can still score a great bargain if you keep an eye out for deals.

    Some Upgraded AR-15s
    Some Upgraded AR-15s

    Plus they’ve brought back monthly coupons based on order amounts.

    I also get most of my upgrade parts from them too.

    Since they are such a big store, you get the peace of mind that you won’t get ripped off and that if there’s anything wrong they’ll take care of it.

    3. Kentucky Gun Company: The Massive Online Gun Shop

    Kygunco Logo
    Kygunco Logo

    Known more as “Kygunco” since that’s their website.

    Tons of gun selection with things that are actually in stock.  Plus decent shipping times.

    Oh and one of the most important things…they are super competitive in their pricing.  Especially when you can save 3% by using their “text a check” method of payment compared to a credit card.

    Chances are someone already bought from them before and had the gun shipped to your receiving FFL…so it’s already in their system.

    4. GrabAGun: Great In-Stock Selection

    We became enamored with GrabAGun a little bit more recently since they always seemed to have the guns we wanted in-stock when other guys didn’t.

    They tend to keep very popular guns in stock too like your Sig Sauers and your Glocks.

    But we’re also loving that they have a good selection of AK-47s.

    WASR 10

    5. Gunbroker: Auction Route


    If you’re looking for a screaming deal or something rarer…you’ll have to go the auction route.  And Gunbroker is the biggest one out there.

    Since it’s an auction you’ll be dealing with individual sellers.  I would recommend going with a well-rated one since they’ve gotten it all figured out.

    You’ll likely have to pay for shipping and also some sellers won’t accept credit cards (or will charge 3%).  Plus you’ll probably have to send in your FFL information since the chances are slim that the specific seller has sent a gun to your specific FFL.

    6. Armslist: Face to Face


    Ah…the world of private firearms transfers.

    Armslist is where people post of their wares and you message to meet them up and complete the transaction.

    It’s worth noting that Armslist charges a $6.99 membership fee to join which allows you to message sellers and post your own guns for sale.

    Check out our guide to staying safe and getting a good deal if you’re unfamiliar.

    7. Sportsman’s Warehouse: Lots of Selection

    Sportsman's Warehouse Logo
    Sportsman’s Warehouse

    Sportsman’s Warehouse is another overall good place to buy guns online.

    They get on the fast track for new guns (probably because they sell a lot) and have many of the most popular guns in stock.

    I’ve ordered from them before and had a little trouble with CA tax issues and my FFL, but I chalk it up to a very specific set of circumstances.

    8. Rainier Arms: Cutting Edge

    Rainier Arms
    Rainier Arms

    Want the highest-end tricked-out pistol, rifle, or shotgun?

    Or how about some NFA items like silencers and SBRs (short-barreled rifles)?

    Check out Rainier Arms.

    They’ve got a stellar reputation in the business and I’ve personally visited their shop and warehouse.  They’ve got their system down and will take care of you.

    9. Rifle Gear: Local Favorite

    Rifle Gear
    Rifle Gear

    If you’re in Southern California (and now Texas), you’ve probably stopped by Rifle Gear’s sweet store.  But their online gun store also boasts some of the best selections of handguns and long guns I’ve seen.

    As an added bonus for California folks…they have an easy to use “CA Legal” search function for figure out which handguns are roster friendly and which rifles are assault weapon compliant.

    10. Euro Optic: Sniper’s Paradise


    I’ve already written about Euro Optic as the best place to get high-end scopes.  But their selection of rarer guns, especially in the precision rifle department, is also impressive.  If Desert Tech and Accuracy International are in your sights…go with Euro Optic.

    I especially like that you can call in and ask questions and someone knowledgeable will answer.  This is an outfit run by people who love what they sell.

    11. Guns.com: Trusted Used Guns


    One of the best places for news and reviews…Guns.com recently stepped into the world of used gun sales.

    And we’ve got to say…the prices are pretty good.

    Plus you’ve got the peace of mind with a large company that has its own appraisal and inspection team.

    We put in an order ourselves and documented the whole process in our review here.

    If your local gun store isn’t up to the task or you want to try and save some dough…buying a gun online is the way to go.

      Very surprised you left out budsgunshop dot com and primaryarms dot com. Many online do not ship to where I am (Hawaii) but both these do. But the best part is they both have good to very good prices and Buds ships free much of the time, PA charges a small fee. Buds has a HUGE selection and PA has a 12% off everything deal occasionally and that includes guns, which is rare among other online stores. Great experiences with both of these. I would like to support our local stores but they have a small selection and many guns they can not get.

      I like all of your selections except guns dot com website. My experience with them was horrible. I felt like they tried to deceive me with a used gun and then they would not own up to what they had done. I had to get my credit card company involved to resolve the issue. Never again would I buy from these people.

      I'm a victim of legacyfxglobalmarkets scam which all started with just a deposit of £400. The next deposit I was forced to pay quickly turned to £1,500 and every time I tried to cash out they asked for more to cover for taxes and other complicated government fees. My profits had accumulated to £117,000 as it would show on my mobile application but I could not access it. By the time I came to my senses that the company is illegitimate, l had already lost a total of £50,000. I researched about the company to confirm my fears and I came across a page where other people who had lost money to them shared their stories. Among the comments was from an elderly guy who shared how he got his profits back through the help of Mr James a genius recovery/hacker. I decided to try my luck and presented my case to him, which they were already familiar with and so I got back everything within 24 hours. I’m writing to confirm that Mr james is absolutely functional. If by any means you're also a victim of online scam kindly send a message accross to them via: jamesmckaywizard AT gmail DOT com or via what'sapp // +919863293475.. And chat with them DIRECTLY..

      I've purchased at Cheaper than Dirt, KY Gun CO, Brownells, Buds Gun Shop. The one I have started using that gives me a warm fuzzy is Bass Pro Shops. They have slightly higher prices, but they also have their own FFL's and stores for pick up as well as a real good selection, including in the retail store. I think I'll be sticking with Bass Pro Shops from now on. In any case, I recommend using only big name dealers. These small guys are too likely to be a scam.

      Just chatted with a guy on Twitter (first red flag) claiming to sell guns at a place called "Official Tactical Store". He claimed to have a firearm I've been looking for a long time with no success. Sounds too good to be true. (second red flag). Went to the website and got an error message saying sorry, we're working on a problem, check back later. (third red flag). He says he'll sell me the gun through Twitter, he'd walk me through the process. I'm done, I'm not going to give my cc number to some twit on Twitter. I told him get his website up and I'd consider it.

      Interesting that Bud's Gun Shop was not on the list. I've ordered from them many times and never had a problem. I would consider them in the top five and not above Brownells. I find Brownells to be higher on their prices than others. PSA is good but they never seem to have the stuff in stock when I am looking for what I want. I have ordered from them and no problem there either except once when some ammo wasn't packaged very well. Looked like it was just thrown in a box with a piece of brown paper that did nothing for protection. Someone that obviously was in too much of a hurry to get a shipment out. Never ordered anything from the others. I have been to a Sportsman's Warehouse and their prices were higher than other gun stores in my area, and not much of a selection. A gun I did want was not in stock, only the display model. The guns behind the counter were helpful but, like I said, their prices were higher. Anyway, give Bud's Gun Shop a try. I don't work for them just mentioning it here if anyone interested.

      Any opinion about Gallery of Guns? You can check and compare fees and pricing between local FFLs and still get backed by the Davidson’s warranty, which I’ve been told by a local FFL is much simpler than working directly with the manufacturer.

      Great selection, guys! However, it seems as if you're not truly familiar with GunBroker! ('Scuse me if someone already mentioned this.) *grins*
      Sort By "Price: Low to High" in the top right dropdown, then scroll down on the left and click the "Buy Now" button. NOW you'll see the items (most of 'em) at their no BS-ing around price.
      After looking at the best-priced, blue-starred, "top-listed" stuff, be SURE to go down past them and consider the lowest-priced ones without the blue star. The prices start low again!

      I didn't figure this out at first and missed guns/stuff further down the pages that were sometimes cheaper than the featured ones!
      Ex: Basic 10/22, p. 1, - $249
      Same weapon, p. 3 - $239

      Hope that helps out. *smiles*

        As a ( once ) long time user of 'Gunbroker' I discovered that recently when I went to use the web-site that I had to 'requalify' to 'reactivate' by sending them ALL and EVERYTHING requested ( including a picture of me 'holding my own license' ) which is ridiculous because even a passport sized photo does NOT show the license as legible ) and they never responded after a week when I inquired. Then? I looked them up and discovered they have had their ISSUES recently and whoever runs it now??? Are amateurs-period! I left them a LONG and negative review and do not recommend them to ANYONE.. YOU, must work for them or something..ehhh??

          Hi there. First, I do NOT work for GB, why would you say that? I've simply used them as one of many sites to buy weapons and related stuff. I was just pointing out that GB isn't purely an auction site. I always search under the "Buy Now" option.

          I'm not sure why GB or a particular seller wanted all of that info from you. I've never gone through that and wouldn't if they asked for it. If you don't like them, don't use them for anything more than comparing prices and sizing up the market. Lately I've added GunsInternational to my list of sites. Try them as well.

      I've used PSA for many orders in spite of reading so bad reviews. Never had any issue......until now. I ordered 2 items. The dark earth dust cover came but the foregrip was a no show. I always heard they had poor customer service. So far that's proving to be true. I contacted them twice and all I've gotten is "crickets".

        The tavor ts12 is a left handed, semi-automatic handgun that is perfect for sporting or home defense shotgun. It is a 12gauge, compact, and lightweight shotgun that is easy to maneuver and handle. With its semi-automatic action, it is fast and efficient in terms of fire power. Go there and order your guns and bulk ammunition from Masterpiecefirearm retail store

        I'm replying to.my own post here. I gave PSA what I feel is an unfair or rather incorrect review. I didn't give them a fair amount of time to respond to my problem with my order being short. They've not only contacted me but have made every effort to make this right. PSA has a long history of doing the right thing and I ask their forgiveness for my foolishly hasty remarks and recommend them with 5 stars.

      If you are fortunate enough to have a Rural King nearby then check out RK Guns. They have good prices and take care of the FFL transfer in store. You just have to be willing to order your gun and wait a few days for it to get to the store. I have purchased many through RK and have always been satisfied with the cost and process.

      US citizens - you are lucky that you are in US (it is first of course :-) ) and secound, that you have these posibilities to buy for example PSA AR15 (Easter Deals now) for $499,99. For part of Ukraine (where we have active battles with russia) AR15 rifles prices increasing (multiply by 2-4-6 for civilians). And also if you are left handed (like me) that's a real problem to buy AR15 for regular price in Ukraine. I asked few FFL dealers from US to open local sales points in western Ukraine - it is good business posibilities for weapons companies to sell weapons in War zone country. Welcome to Ukraine!

The people at TGS report that the TX attorney general is moving to find and stop the scammers. I got lucky, PayPal stopped the payment and I'm gonna go put some holes in cardboard. Now, if I can just find a Taurus Tracker 22....
