Where To Find _________

*Some of the external links found on this website are affiliate links. Those links use cookies to generate revenue and fund continuation of this website. By clicking an external link you are consenting to a temporary cookie, by purchasing from that link you are supporting this website. To opt out of cookies do not click external links.

We started this website in part because over the years we've been asked hundreds (if not thousands) of times where to find something. YouTube no longer allows any links to any website selling anything remotely related to firearms. That's forced us to be a bit rude and either ignore the question or respond by directing folks looking for help to search the internet. We know what it's like to not know which vendors to trust or not, who has good prices, etc.

We also felt the financial crunch of maintaining the channel and looked for another way to earn back some of the expenses of the channel. Combining answers to those two needs with our ability to release information uncensored, and give a little more detail than we do in video is this website.


The links below are affiliate links. Yes, that's right, GBGuns now has affiliate links, but rather than pimp out our supporters to random products and companies we've selected a few based on our experiences with the companies and products. We won't link to anything we wouldn't recommend to a friend, but if you use these links a small portion of your purchase will come back to support the channel and this website.


General Sources of Goods:

  • Brownell's: Quite possibly the largest collection of knowledge, parts, and all things gun-related on the internet. The friendly folks at Brownell's know a lot about a lot of things and will point you in the right direction. That's an excellent trait because their website isn't always the easiest to browse. An excellent place if you already know what you're looking for.

  • Global Ordnance is the US importer for Grand Power and Arex firearms. They also have quite a lot more as the company's main business is international arms trade, not commercial sales. As a result their consumer-facing website is a bit of a mess. Sometimes I can't find something on their site that I know I bought from them. Fortunately links in my articles take you directly to that product page.

  • GrabaGun is another online retail giant, often offering a wider selection and lower prices than other places. I used to be a frequent purchaser from them until they used Oregon's Measure 114 as an excuse to steal magazines form orders (which coincidentally are also sold on the website). Their selection and pricing however makes them difficult to boycot.

  • Gun.Deals is a search engine of sorts. They don't seel anything, but crawl the web for you to find retailers. Results often list price, inventory, and shipping costs so you can find the absolute best price. It's great to see a range of prices, but be cautious of ordering from a vendor you've never heard of before. Just do your homework before buying.

  • Optics Planet sells a lot mroe than just optics. They've grown to near Amazon-level variety of products. Prices can sometimes be great, other times not, and they are known to list items that are on back order, so check inventory before you place your order if timing is important.

  • Primary Arms: The list of things offered at Primary Arms seems ever-expanding. A long way from just a couple basic AR parts and their house brand optics listings of yesteryear. Primary Arms tends to have great deals on items with limited quantities, so browse quickly if you think you've found what you want. We go here to find some of the cool-guy brand AR parts at a more reasonable price.

  • Palmetto State Armory: Another giant that continues to grow. Some of the best prices on the internet for guns and ammo can be found here, if the item's in stock. Regulars follow forums and groups that track when restock day is to snatch up items before they disappear again. PSA is no stranger to leaving listings on their site that likely won't be restocked (think Zillow, but guns). Once you learn to accept that and shop "in stock only" there can be some great deals.

  • Sig Sauer has become a one-stop shop for firearms, parts, optics, and ammunition. If you're in the Sig ecosphere there's one place that always lists all the options.

  • Sportsman's Guide: Long before starting the channel this was a name I saw often on my banking statements. Just about everything for the outdoors. Some of it great, some of it ok, but they will have something. Be cautious with ammo purchases as we've been waiting over a year for a couple of shipments, but for all other outdoor gear this is a great place. Their four-pay plan is also a great way to break up big-ticket purchases without dinging your credit. (Ask me how I know). They've also been a long-time supporter of the channel via Patreon without asking for a thing in return.

  • Target Sports USA is mostly an ammunition vendor, but they do have a collection of firearms, knives, and other gear. Sometimes I find the best prices here.

Ammunition

  • Ammo Squared We've been customers for years and it helped us get through the crunch of 2020. Ammo Squared is more of an ammo bank account than a regular vendor. Decide which caliber and projectile type you're after, set a monthly budget, and let your stockpile grow. By joining through www.AmmoSquared.com/GBGuns you'll get a $20 credit, and Ammo Squared will add a percentage of your spend to our ammo budget.

  • Ammunition Depot is a good source for buying by the case. If you're new to ordering ammunition online, buyin by the case is usually a great way to reduce cost per round.

  • Federal Premium is an industry giant with a near monopoly on primer production. Their massive scale permits them to offer common and interesting loadings, sometimes those uncommon loads are hard to find in local stores, but ordering direct ensures you'll find it.

  • Remington was reborn a couple of years ago and we've seen a mekred increase in quality since then. Although a household name, you may not easily find the more unique loadings at your local shop. Buying direct simplifies that.

  • True Shot Gun Club A company we hadn't done much business with in the past, but when we found that their prices remained fair throughout the 2020 ammo crunch we were impressed. You may not find pre-pandemic pricing, but prices tend to be better than most online vendors.

Firearms

  • Guns.com What once was a source for gun reviews and news transformed a couple years ago. News and reviews have taken a backseat to what is now a new and used firearms marketplace. Prices can vary depending on what people are looking to make from the guns, but you can find some of the oddballs here that don't appear elsewhere due to distribution challenges.

Concealment and Range Bags

  • Elite Survival Systems You've seen their clever bags in several of our videos. Excellent quality, practical designs, and low profile without the "try hard" some of the other bag makers end up with. Teya uses one of their backpacks as a range bag and we regularly use their various rifle and SBR bags.

Holsters

  • CrossBreed Holsters: I avoided this brand for too long simply because I don't care to have a religious symbol on my holster. That was a mistake, not only do they have one of the more thurough listings of compatible guns (this is where I get Grand Power holsters for example) but for me their hybrid option is awesome for strong side carry. I won't pretend that there's one holster answer for every one. There isn't. Finding the right holster for your body type, gun, carry position, clothing style, and comfort threshold is a journey that everyone must embark on. I've just been a fan of CrossBreed and have one for each gun in my carry rotation.


We'll likely add to this list over time and update as vendors come and go. So far this is a good place to start. We'd like to hear from you in the comment section if you've had multiple experiences with any of these companies that someone should know about. We appreciate your support. By using these links you're supporting the website and channel.

Great idea, Graham, to create this list with links to quality products. Really enjoy the videos you and Teya make. I also appreciate the What’s for Dinner segments to confirm the ability of different firearms to handle different loads. Important to know when considering firearm options. I value your no nonsense approach, thoroughness and unbiased opinions. I have made several purchases based on your recommendations alone. Particularly, Grand Power! Now one of my favorites which has also resulted in others choosing them for their use as well. I’m glad you also enjoy the Bul Armory handguns as I feel they are some of the finest firearms for the money. Keep up the great work!

Really like your article, it's extremely helpful getting your opinions about particular companies.


I have bought many items from LA Police Gear and find their branded merchandise is excellent quality specifically their women's tactical pant offerings and bags.


Sportsmans Guide is a recent find where ai bought a pistol using the pay in four option. Helps with budgeting 😁 And their price was the best around, too.


Anyhow just my two cents, I'm checking out the other stores you've listed, and I'll stop rambling now.
