Why is that? Eventually you get tired of paying extremely overinflated prices among other issues and look for a new FFL.

I will say that Camerons in Oxford,Pa is a close second.

Also.....

John and Camerons are the only local FFLs to me that did not intentionally try to drain the bank accounts of thier customers due to the 2013 ban. Period.

John will do his best to get you what you want at the best price he can. He doesn't charge too much for a transfer fee. He will work with you on just about any matter as long as it's legal and moral.

What else could you ask for?

I made my first purchase from John recently, and I highly recommend him. Great to do business with, and no one can touch his prices.

Oh I am not doubting you at all. It's interesting because I have had my own reservations as well.

But I also think there is a fundamental difference John's model and the others that have an Internet presence. It appears John has his own web site, the other go through a third party to provide some sort of virtual store. This creates a lot of overhead that we pay for. Seriously - I can show you 2 IP websites and they lead you to the same virtual storefront that takes it's cut before the IP takes theirs.

Then you have IP's that are just plain dicks. If you are thin-skinned and can't deal with people - find another line of work!!

I could go on.

True. Plus John does not have the need to keep the lights on in a brick and mortar store either. The entire pckage just works and works best for me. It is a very relaxed situation to buy from John. Mixed with supporting a veteran, and close to home with the best prices I have seen anywhere, it cannot be beaten.

I have an FFL 3 miles from my house, I drive 10 to go to Johns and would drive much further if needed.

And that is why I bought my Legion from John, great guy!

Then he went the extra mile and sent the Sig down to the Sig Armorer for some action work...the easiest ever !!!
