Gun Shops In Seattle

I was wondering which gun dealers in Seattle you recommend? I have recently purchased a Glock 22 from Butch's in Seattle and found that they were very easy to deal with. I have also heard good things about Lynnwood Gun and Discount Guns, but have heard that both Sam's and Wade's are overpriced. What experiences have you had with dealers in Seattle?

Ive bought both my Glocks from Bear Arms in Covington, but have bought alot of my supplies/ammo/sights/ruger 10-22 from West Coast Armory in Issaquah, have had nothing but great service at both and very friendly people, i sometimes feel in other shops as if everyone else is higher than me, not the case at those 2 places, Wades does seem to be a little over priced but ive been happy with them as well. Also Champion arms in Kent is a good shop/range as well

I went into West Coast Armory today. Their shop is pretty small, but they do seem to have a good variety of guns and supplies. Their prices were also very reasonable.

Check out Federal Way Discount Guns, which is different from the Discount Gun chain.

A smaller shop ( bigger than West Coast Amory) but the most knowledgeable staff I have found in this area and the best prices. Check them out, you will agree.

I have heard of complaints about Federal Way Discount guns from people that have gone in there. In fact a fellow I know had one of the employees try to grab his holstered pistol from him.

I have done business myself with Wade's and Sams and they are a little on the high side. I have also used Discount Gun Sales, which is the chain, and have been pretty happy. They have some deals and some higher priced stuff. I have heard nothing but praise about Butches.

I was there about 12:30 p.m. I hope the sights work out for you. I am thinking about getting different sights as well as I just have the default ones on my 22. Mainly I was in there to check out the store and see how much they were charging for .40 ammunition. I did end up purchasing an UpLULA magazine reloader though, it works great!

Update: After a week of hearing nothing and me calling and asking about progress i decided to go into the shop, i was told all the sight installs had been done but when mine was brought to me it was the exact same as i left it, i said thank you and left with my slide/sights/night sights, i had forgot my friends dad is a retired glock armorer and has all the tools, so i took the slide back to work and did the install myself in about 2 mins. I dont blame West Coast Armory, i understand they are extremely busy with gun builds and whatnot and i will still give them my business, i just wish there would have been some better communitcation

I can understand that. I think that all the shops are just so busy right now though that it is really difficult for them to keep up, especially when they are a small store like West Coast is.

Wade's definately WAY overpriced. DGS is the same. I actually have found the opposite, in regards to Sam's. I have bought a few guns there in the last few years new and they have been competitive with every other local dealer I have called. I shoot there at thier range regularly and when I have purchased they always give me a box of ammo and you get a months range membership with every gun you buy. Lynnwood, the prices seem reasonable but they don't seem to have much in stock on hand. If your wiling to wait they have quoted maybe $10 -15 bucks less. If your looking used, DJ's in Bothel is the place to go.

I do like shooting at Sam's and it's true that they give you a membershp for a month. I thought that they had discontinued the ammo giveaway, but I could be wrong about that. I have found their prices to be a bit above Butch's, Lynnwood and West Coast, but below Discount and Wade's.

I ammo give away isn't any longer a regular thing. I tend to wheel and deal them on that and know others that have as well. I normally negotiate at least one extra mag at cost when I buy a gun from them and again help negotiate a deal or two for friends.

+1 for Federal Way Discount... but though they don't allow you to carry inside the shop.

My wife just purchased a Taurus 92 from Discount Guns. Even though I wasn't wild about her choice I really liked that the salesperson asked her questions to find out exactly what she was looking for. If it was me I would of gotten a G-17. After seeing how she did at the range I do think the Taurus fits her well, just like my G-22 fits me.

The best dealer in the NW is Mary's Pistols in Tacoma. Great prices and service. Example: Bought an EoTech 557 for $460. Mary and Dan will treat you right.

I appreciate the advice. It seems to me that there is a real lack on the north end of the Seattle area though. I mean Sam's is OK, and of course there is a Discount Gun store in Everett, but not much in the Marysville/Arlington area. You basically have to go all of the way up to Kesselring in Burlington.

I just bought my first at DSG in Totem Lake. My friend has been going there for years and introduced me to Brett. Real good guy and easy to work with.
I live in Woodinville and theres a little gun shop behind Target, looks like a shack! Havent been in there in YEARS but its been there since I was a kid. Always have funny stuff on their Reader Board.
