    Being in southern California, I know I'm going to get somewhat ripped off. I'm looking to get two handguns in the near future, and I was wondering if anyone in here had recommendations where to shop. Will go up to the valley or down to Oceanside if I have to.

    Thanks!

    www.ammobros.com these guys are pretty good. Have a decent selection of pistols, OLL AR's and AK's, sell pretty decent reloaded ammo. They even got a glockworx sample gun you can check out. They are in cerritos. I'm SO Cal also, where are you located exactly.

    Long Beach. That's not too far. I'll have to stop by there tomorrow morning and check it out. Every place in OC just wants to rape on price.

    I'm in Long Beach too, actually signal hill.

    Turners in signal hill sometimes has OK sales prices. I buy from them because they are so convient and I don't mind paying a little more to keep my local store in bussiness. If we don't then they will be gone. It's nice to have them to get some ammo (that I don't reload like 7.62x39), powder, primers, or cleaning supplies when I'm hard up and need something now, not mail order.

    The stockade in westminster is a rip off for guns but I like them for reloading stuff. They got dillion parts so if I break something and don't want to wait to get it direct from dillon I can get it there.

    orange county indoor in brea has some pistols and rifles. They are reasonably priced for CA.

    I forgot about OC indoor. I've been over to Turner's, I'm probably going to get my 12ga from them.

    I've been to insight, it's nice for a indoor range. They have lots of bays. I typically don't go to indoor ranges. I much prefer a outdoor range. I'm a competition shooter so I shoot pistol or 3 gun matches every weekend. There are lots of good shooting in So. Cal dispite all the stupid gun laws. Check out my website www.madtrigger.com

    When I do shoot indoor is typically to do a quick test of a customers gun I work for glockworx.com I do occasionally shoot the tactical tuesday match at oc indoor.

    That's a nice trigger on the glockworx site. I've always complained about the feel of the stock trigger. How do people like 'em?

    I'm only 19, which is why I don't own at least 3 yet :mamoru:

    I've never done any competition or shooting on the move type of shooting. Only been able to shoot at indoors.
