    Looks like a nicely done website, enjoyed the virtual tour.

    Is this a recommended shop?

    Great place to touch and feel a new piece and then order it from somewhere else, for a lot less $$$$

    I have seen guns listed over retail.

    It is worth the drive to Buds or Whittakers.

    Whittakers is Far and away the finest gun store I've ever been in. Huge selection and great prices.

    Prices are horrible. Easily one of the most highly priced gun shops in the state.

    Selection can be very good, so great place to look.

    Shooter's Supply has a LOT of very nice guns and gear and very friendly and helpful staff. Their prices are outrageous, but it's a nice place for browsing.

    Oh yeah! - old man Whittaker is hit or miss on his personal charm (depends on the day and how much you are spending), but his prices can't be beat and his selection really, really can't be beat by any shop I've ever seen.

    When you purchase there you need to "haggle with them" If you ask them for the best price... They will go get approval and come back with a 9%-13% reduction in price. If that is still not to your liking counter and watch the clerk go in the back again...


    It is kind of like buying a car..."Shooters Max" I feel they have prices marked high for the new buyer that comes in and does not know better.....

    I watched this happen last week, and I have experienced it my self last year on a rifle purchase.

    Memories. I remember when the KelTec P3AT first came out and Shooters Supply had them when no one else did (for about two weeks). They are were listing them at $399.99. When I asked them about the price they gave me this Bullsh song and dance, assuming that I had been born last night.

    Well, I know that paying too much is not my favorite game.

    The wife is not buying the need for more of those "things" in the house at the moment anyway... It never hurts to look though

    Problem is, most people have real low opinons of car salesman and know they are trying to screw you. I have to put up with that when buying a car but not with guns. I'd rather deal with people that don't feel the need to play games or rob you. Great place to look but not to buy.

    You might want to try Kiesler's in Jeffersonville if you haven't been there. I had not been there for about two years but stopped last week and was plesantly supprised by the selection. They had good prices on ammo and reasonable prices on guns. They even carry some Dillon equipment now.

    shooter's supply is a joke. they cater to people with more money than brains :animlol: . i look at is a real-life catalog or a museum, you can look, but don't buy. their prices are out of control and about 10-25% too high on firearms, but i've never tried haggling with them . . . .

    I have haggled with them. It works.

    I can certainly understand that not a lot of folks like to do that though.

    I've never bought a gun I didn't haggle on. I thought it was part of the game.:)

    I don't mind asking for the lowest cash price where guns are marked at MSRP, but when I go in a store that has them marked UP above list, I figure there is no point in asking.

    When somebody starts doing that used car dealer crap about "going to the back to ask the boss for a better 'best price'," I'm done. I don't like to do business with people who try to BS me. I don't mind it so much in a trade, because they really do need to check out the value of my gun (in a week I've had the same gun given a trade-in value of $500 to $700 in different stores) and I'm pretty good at the trading game (having learned it with guitars, which are a lot more expensive and usually involve a lot more knowledgeable traders/dealers). It's just the used car dealer BS routine on a cash sale that gets me.

    That last comment isn't directed at Shooter's Supply, because I've never tried to buy a gun from them (see the first comment - scary marked prices mean I don't ask).
