DE Gun Shops To Avoid?

Iím a fairly new resident to DE (just moved here last year), and I have yet to buy anything in-state. With the warmer weather Iím starting to get that itch for something new.
I was curious if anyone could give me any recommendations for some good shops with quality service and good people, or more importantly the places I should avoid (and why)? I know this is all subjective, but Iíd still appreciate the input.
Iím in Kent Co., but I have no issue driving north or south for a pleasant experience.

Thanks in advance for any feedback, and have a great Memorial Day!🇺🇸

I believe Miller's up north came out openly in support of universal background checks a while back

Try federal firearms. Small home based ffl. Good stuff. Good service.

Stay away from millers, as noted above an anti 2a shop.

As I recall he is between Newark and Middletown. Just south of summit bridge

Google Federal firearms Delaware and you’ll see them on the map

I found myself in Ocean City last week and took a ride up to this store to purchase some standard cap mags. Parked the bike, walked up to the door where I was greeted by a large "No Loaded Firearms" sign.

Since the Sig on my hip wasn't welcome I turned on my heels and left. I would have liked to give my business to a mom and pop guy but Cabelas will get a several hundred dollar purchase instead of this jack wagon.

When he had the store in Elkridge it was actually the closest LGS to me but after having a completely terrible experience in there the one time I darkened the door I drove past him every time to do business with 2A Sales in Jessup.

Agreed. I stopped in once and that was it for me. I wouldnít even do a transfer at Nations gun show with him.

I actually knew the owner of Millerís Gun Center. He lost my respect when he advocated for gun control legislation to increase the $$$ coming in.
