The best gun shops in MA, (my humble opinion).

BEST
1. Four Seasons- Woburn (huge selection)
2. Law Enforcement Equip- Waltham (cop friendly)
3. Village Gun Shop- Northboro (good long weapon selection)

Worst
The Gun Room- Shrewsbury (long story, but i would never but anything there again) :NO:

I'll second on Four seasons being very good...A.G. guns in Lowell seems to have a good selection too..but I think some of the people that work there seem to have inflated ego's or something....As far the worst ...well the store part of Bobs Tactical in Salisbury..it's like they have nothing in the cases...the range is okay that's about it....

SPD - Not a big fan of "The Gun Room" myself. Haven't had any real experiences there. I just try to avoid that place in general. Besides the smell of a smokey bar room, its just something about that place I don't like. I think some of the employees might be part militia members :L: Poor service there too. Seems like they are always helping 'someone else'. Seems like the place is a hang out for militia gun freaks.

I agree Four Seasons is cop friendly also, a small shop on route 28 in Lawrence called Gun Sport North has very good deals

Quick "gun room" story, they tried to make me buy a trigger lock, for a brand new sig 226, CMR's say 2 things, 1 cops are exempt, 2. new guns must come with a trigger lock. After a brief "discussion" the militia type behind the counter started yelling, and tore up the paperwork.

A call to the A.G.'s office resulted in some pretty thorough ball busting, and they now have a sign that says, "all firearm prices include a trigger lock"

Though the gun laws in MA suck, I reall y have an issue with a gun store who tries to twist the law to make more $$

:sb:

I have had a lot of good luck with American Firearms School in Attleboro. Real good prices and always a good selection of new and used weapons on hand and if not usually within a day or two.

Four seasons is such a pleasure. The weird thing is they do charge xtra for the lock on ANY gun, but the prices are so good I've never seen any reason to piss about it. I recently bought a Marlin 60 without a scratch, used for $49.95. It is currently $108.98 @ Wally-mart.

Never any pressure, and usually have any accessories/amoo you need
:D

For those in Western MA, Triple A guns in West Springfield is hard to beat. Always very cop-friendly (it better be, the owner is reserve captain), with good deals. Very high marks from me. In Eastern MA, I have had good luck with Gun & Sport North in Lawrence. Very nice folks and cop-friendly.

Another place to check on was Interstate Arms I believe it is in Billerica. They used to sell to law enforcement and had good discounts if you could get a department letterhead.

I'll put my vote in for Four Seasons as well... I bought my 9000s 40cal there at a great price... they were very friendly.... no pressure... and were awesome to work with when I sold my 92D through gunbroker... Hands down the best I've dealt with... Go to their site and sign up for their email list... you get all their updates and specials emailed to you... it's great... :D

The Gun room just plan sucks.... I went it there once to look at buying a safe... and the guy argued with me about what good is the gun if it's locked up!! I tried to explain to him that I wasn't concerned with that and wanted a secure place to store the weapons... he wasn't having it... since I don't have kids in the house... he felt a holster under my nightstand would be sufficiant... needless to say I went elsewhere to purchase the safe... way to talk your way out of a sale buddy....

Village Gun has a good selection... I feel their prices are up there though...

I've had great luck with 4seasons and the people who work there are friendly and informed. The website is also very good.

I miss Jack's Gun Shop & Tea Room just outside of Quincy Center. When you were done shopping downstairs, you could stop upstairs for a nice leaf reading by his wife. It was thrown in with every gun purchase if he liked you.

When Hitler, er... I mean AG Reilly came into power, he had his own agenda & changed the gun laws so that we became an even bigger socialist state. You needed a separate place of business to conduct firearm sales so alot of small garage shops had to close down. So much for the economy and putting the small people out of business.

The A.G.'s apartment burned down last month in Watertown and the cause was an unattended heat gun! Shouldn't heat guns have trigger locks on them?? Shouldn't heat guns be regulated as well?

Shouldn't painters / paint strippers be afforded the same Constitutional rights as it pertains to heat guns for a well regulated militia? Just wondering if this will be a new agenda for Herr A.G.
