    The guy from MC Leather sold out to Pro's Choice. They're not affiliated with him. He actually screwed me on a silencer purchase. Would hate to actually associate Pro's Choice with him.

    I was in Manassas to pick up some washing machine repair parts and noticed two doors down was Hatfiled's Gunsmithing. Went in (of course), nice group of guys, small shop - but - they had flyers for their hosted pin and plate shoots at Fairfax Rod & Gun Club and several Glock race guns in the showroom. I gathered their main income is from custom work/builds (Glocks and 1911's - hard to tell which is a heavier focus, if either). They have a MILO simulator they demonstrated for me (uhhh...yeah - need to get one of those in-home - somewhere between $8k and $38k from the searches I did). No shooting range at the main site. Inventory was pure custom work and Condor bits and pieces. Owner is purported (no reason to disbelieve, but I haven't done due diligence) to be former armorer for US Army 1911, team USA members, etc.

    Again - nice group of guys, talked with a couple of them at length about local 3-gun opportunities, utility of MILO simulator, etc. No BS, just straight talk and no opinion - just fact. That alone is reason to return.

    Adding a few more Richmond area stores that I didn't see posted or did not have full info.

    Southern Police Equipment (AKA Southern Gun World)
    7609 Midlothian Turnpike
    Richmond, VA 23235
    800-542-5243
    Southern Police Equipment
    Right across from the VSP headquarters, they have a huge focus on LE contracts and equipment. But not too much in the way of hunting. But still, all the tacticool toys! They often have good sales on LE buyback firearms.

    Town Police Supply
    3541 Courthouse Road
    Richmond, VA 23236
    800-443-8871 or 804-745-6433
    (There is a second location at 3985 Virginia Avenue, Collinsville, VA 24078. 800-752-5580 or 276-647-4161
    Town Police Supply
    The Chesterfield location is hidden behind the Regency Inn and Suites at the corner of Hull and Courthouse. This is another gun store that focuses on LE contracts. Years ago I felt very unwanted there when I browsed, but now they are a very friendly store to be in.

    Green Top
    10150 Lakeridge Parkway
    Ashland, VA 23005
    804-550-2188
    Green Top
    I remember when the staff was quaking in their boots because Bass Pro and Gander Mountain were opening stores right on top of them. But they outlasted Gander Mountain and took over that location! (My GPS still takes me to their Route 1 location, oddly enough.) This store focuses on hunting and fishing, but they also have a great selection of pistols and rifles for home defense and competition shooting. If you want to modify your AR, odds are that they have the parts in stock. There is a reason they are standing toe to toe with Gander and Bass Pro.

    Bass Pro
    11550 Lakeridge Parkway
    Ashland, VA 23005
    804-496-4700
    Bass Pro
    It's Bass Pro. What can I say? This place is like an amusement park, and I keep going back for more. I have spent so much money here... But very little on firearms. It just sucks you in.

    Bob Moates Sport Shop
    10418 Hull Street Road
    Midlothian, VA 23112
    804-276-2293
    Bob Moates Sport Shop
    Bob has since passed on, but his wife runs the place. It is the place to go to get a reproduction firearm (especially for American Civil War reenactments) or an older firearm. There is a huge selection of used firearms. They have a nice selection of black rifles behind the counter, but if they are busy then it's difficult to get someone to help you. It used to be a quiet shop and now it's always busy.

    Rebel Sporting Goods, Ltd
    115 King Street
    Keysville, VA 23947
    434-736-8248
    Rebel Sporting Goods
    I would be remiss if I did not mention Bob Moates second location. As I understand they are under new management, so I can not tell you much about the place. (I believe the "second" shop used to be in the area of Charlotte Courthouse.)

    DeGoff's
    8106 Mechanicsville Turnpike
    Mechanicsville, VA 23111
    804-746-0273
    DeGoff's
    This is the store that I purchased my first firearm from, which was a used pre-ban Glock 17 with three magazines. (The ban was still in effect at the time.) And the price was comparable to a new capacity compliant Glock. DeGoff's is a big supporter of the Cowboy Action shooting in the area, and you can get a lot of your equipment and clothes here.

    Richmond Arsenal
    2570 New Market Road
    Suite E
    Richmond, VA 23231
    804-237-4289
    email: hutch72 @outlook.com
    New place. Small, limited selection on firearms. But the prices seem good and he has a bit of ammo for sale. (No limits on .22, which is in stock.) He offers $27 firearms transfers.

    Hopkin's Gun and Tackle
    8151 Mechanicsville Turnpike
    Mechanicsville, VA 23111
    (804) 277-8423

    This store is located just a stones throw from Degoff's. The rumor is that it is owned by the previous owner of Green Top. (Didn't bother asking to confirm this.) The front half of the shop is dedicated to fishing. The back half is dedicated to ammo and firearms. I felt that they had a good selection of ammo. Plus it was nice that they had plenty of bulk 9mm and 5.56. Their firearms selection was OK, but it seemed a little sparse as compared to Degoff's. They apparently intend to put in an indoor shooting range in the next year.

    Gilbert's is now Sharpshooters. They had some ffl problems and changed their name a few years ago. Still seem to be a good group of guys.

    Colonial Shooting Academy recently opened in Virginia Beach. Its very nice but a little more spendy than the smaller indoor ranges in Hampton Roads.

    If you are ever in the Berryville area, stop in and give Brian Lingle a shout. He is ex Secret Service serving the Bush Administration and is very knowledgeable and courteous. Great prices, as well !

    They treat customers like real people, with respect and none of the 'elitism' I've seen in other stores. Always willing to anser questions, even stupid ones without treating the asker like an idiot.
    HUGE selection, Police/LE Discounts and s 'special room of goodies' for Police, Military, Emergency Response and the like.

    Henrico, VA 23228
    804-625-7468

    This is a "new to me" gun shop. I'm used to Green Top, so it looked really small to me. They did have a bit of AR uppers and accessories. The guy working there said that they were the store that made Henrico overturn it's ban on gun stores. I can neither confirm nor deny it but I remember for the longest time that you either had to go to Hanover or Chesterfield for anything firearms related.

    Clark Bro's in Opal, Fauquier Co., is actually in the Northern Piedmont - we who live there like to think that's not "Northern Virginia". I'd point out as well that there's Tony Wilcox on Fifth St. in Warrenton, who does a big business in antiques and used firearms (I joke with him about how if it was made after the Napoleanic Wars, he doesn't have it) - but seriously he always has a nice stock of the classics. And there's a brand new shop just opened up on the other side of Main Street, around the corner from Harvest Bakery, also in Warrenton, called "High Flyers"; a very nice, but small shop with good prices - the owners have "day jobs", so they tend to be there evenings and weekends. Also, about halfway between New Baltimore and Warrenton on Mill Run Rd. (off of Dumfries Rd. Rt 605), there's Berny Hostrop. Berny's been a gunsmith, I think, since they first invented the rifled bore, and he keeps a few interesting items available for sale, mostly revolvers and bolt-action rifles.

    In Prince William Co., there's a new gun shop that just opened up at the intersection of Vint Hill Rd. and Lee Highway (rt 29); mostly catering to the tactical black gun crowd. Sorry, can't remember the name off the top of my head. And I would recommend Virginia Arms Co. in Manassass on Rt. 28 Bus. just W. of the Pr. Wm. Co. Courthouse. Most competitive prices on new guns, and always a fair deal. And Sam Hatfield's "Hatfield's Gunsmiffin' " shop also in Manassas has a limited supply of things to sell - but he's an outstanding gunsmith, particularly with automatics and semiautomatics. Guns & Ammo Warehouse on the other side of the street from Va. Arms and a little farther west, has a good supply of clothing, holsters, belts and stuff as well as the usual.

    Anyone shot there? Been to the one in Richmond, but haven't had a chance to get to this one yet.
