    Default Best LGS for used guns in the area?

    I'm in the Montco area, wanted to find the best local gun shops for dealing with used firearms.

    Looking for a cheap pocket carry pistol in good condition, Also looking to get the most value out of a new AR15 pistol if I decided to trade it in on one.

    Which shops would you reccommend?
    NO LEO ONLY shops please.

    Tanners has to be in the running. They usually have a good supply of new and used guns, and are known to be good with trades.

    Agree............They post pics of their used firearms on their Facebook page twice a week (You don't have to log in to Facebook to see the pics but there is an annoying reminder). IIRC they are also one of GunBrokers biggest sellers and have pages of used guns for sale there. Somewher on their website is a link to their auctions. Many are premium firearms that I wish they would give us locals a chance at first but I understand economics. I assume you can buy something online and pick it up but you will need to check.

    I'm closer to King's so I end up there more often. I don't make a habit of trading in guns at LGSs, but the one time I did at Tanner's I felt they were fair.

    Can't go wrong at either place. (I am not affiliated with any gun shop)

    Trading through a gun shop is never ideal, im just hoping to not take it as hard. I have an unassembled as of yet ar15 pistol with mags and ammo..blah..blah..blah and I really need it to be something small for concealed carry rather than an AR.

    Ideally I'd love to find like a diamondback db 9mm and a hipoint 9mm carbine instead.

    Another vote for Tanners. They've gotten more than a couple of dollars from me.

    The newest generation of the db9 looked damn promising for its size, and my budget with just having a newborn and moving.

    Also never heard of any real failures or issues with the hi point 9mm carbine(not pistol) being a fun paper punch at the range.
