Default Looking for a major retailer in N. California

Hi,

I've been looking for a hard to find pistol, and from what I know, distributors always play favorite and give new stock to the major players, and then if they have any left, to the LGS.

Is there a Cabela type store we have in N. California?

Thanks!

walther p99. It's next to impossible to find in LGS. My only hope is to find a major retailer that will likely has in stock. I will definitely try bass pro shop as well.

Sportsman's warehouse in Sac might qualify.
Why not order one online?

Bass Pro lately has let their stock dwindle, the last few times I have been there, the glass counters have been 1/5 stocked or so. Its been over a month now though, maybe things have improved there.

try http://www.galleryofguns.com/Retailer/default.aspx


put in your zip code and locate a dealer the guys I have dealt with in can usually scare some thing up that way.

Works well!!

got a sig p220 last November for otd 768 by going with small shop vs the big guys.


everything listed that was "allocated" means a dealer has spoken for it however the small shops can either trade inventory or transfer to each other no hassles!!

This is where I look when I cant find something at the box stores

+10 on this one. They have more guns in-stock then Bass Pro...not to mention better prices. You might also try Elite Arms and Supply if your in the Manteca area, it's right accross the freeway from Bass Pro

Barnwood in Ripon usually has a good selection and is willing and able to order whatever you are looking for.

I was just there on sunday.. half a case of handguns, and about half the rifle and shotgun spaces were empty.

If you can find a decent LGS that will do an out of state transfer Cabela's in Reno is always great to deal with.
