    Ray's Hardware and Sporting Goods has a great selection and a comfortable store to spend some time. A little high in prices but a good place to kill and hour. They are just west of downtown Dallas. Closed Monday

    Two Bass Pro Shops, one just north of DFW airport in Grapevine and the new one that's a little east of Dallas in Garland.

    Cabela's which is 10-15 minutes north of downtown Ft. Worth.

    Elk Castle has a pretty good selection. They are 10-15 minutes west of Ft. Worth.

    That should keep you busy for a day.:thumbsup:

    Bachman can have attitude problems. I've heard lots of stories; had one experience by phone. The Bullet Trap sometimes has interesting stuff in the consignment case. At least two guns there I should have bought.

    I've bought two Glocks from Bachmans and a friend has bought a SIG from them. They do have good prices and when I buy another Glock, I'll definitely check with them first.

    I've not experienced the attitude problem.

    Sporting Arms is not a store. They run it out of their house. Window shopping could be hazardous to your health.

    Winchester Gallery (showroom) and The Shooting Gallery (range). East Fort Worth, Lancaster and Loop 820. Gunsmith on site as well.

    Helluva good selection, tons of older/rarer used guns. Lots of rentals, and in some cases on the used guns, try-b4-u-buy.

    Prices aren't the lowest, but the service/attitude has been terrific in my experience.

    Bachman may have good prices, but in my experience it's not worth the hassle.

    1. Getting treated like crap by someone you're trying to give money to isn't my idea of what makes a good gun store.

    2. Then there's the "everything has three prices" problem. Gun show price, the price they put in the Shotgun News and the storefront price. Just bringing this up...well, see #1.

    I don't recommend Bachman.

    Sad but true, I do not recommend any gunshop in Fort Worth.
