    The BX at Patrick AFB near the Cape in Florida is setting up to sell guns and ammo. I was in there today and they have two rotating long gun displays and 20+ feet of display cases. No idea when they’ll be up and running or whether the prices will be any better than what’s available online.

    I’ve been going in there for over 25 years and this is new. They’ve always carried fishing and camping gear, but no guns and no shooting equipment. It’ll be interesting to see what they carry and whether they’ll receive guns bought online. Even if their prices aren’t great, there’s NO SALES TAX on stuff bought in the BX.

    Damn! I spent 8 years there and now that I'm gone they wanna start selling?!?! Oh well, I got my G19 at Quantico and some ammo at one of the Army bases out here in the NCR, Ft. Belvoir or Meade i think. The no sales tax is definitely a benefit! And they can usually get any of the "normal" guns for comparative prices.

    They started selling guns here at the FE Warren BX last year. They have comparable prices to the civilian shops, but with no tax its almost always a better deal to buy on base. At least here any way.
