Should I purchase a gun online?: The idea of buying weapons online raises many questions and concerns among gun enthusiasts, but the process of buying from online gun dealers is legal, regulated, and offers some advantages over the local gun shop. Here are four advantages to why you should buy guns online.
Selection — The assortment of weapons available through online gun dealers is vast, and buyers can access more makes, styles, and calibers than are available in a typical gun shop.
Purchasing options — online gun dealers also can sell guns via an auction format or straight transaction. These options can be an advantage to gun values online.
Price — online gun prices are considered wholesale, with the average online transaction for weapons being about $100 less than at a local store.
Convenience — while local gun shops have a limited selection and may have to place items on back order, this rarely happens with online gun dealers. The Internet also makes it possible to streamline the purchase of gun parts and accessories.
