So I was down at my in-laws in Murray this weekend and wanted to burn some time. So I looked up "guns" in the yellow pages and went to some of the places listed. I went to 4-5 places (several were pawn shops) and the nicest by far (IMO) was "Get Some." They didn't have a ton of hanguns, but they had a good selection. (I also like the AR's so bonus). They are also only about 2 miles from my in-laws. Next time I go down for a weekend, I will probably bring my guns and do some shooting at their range. I was wondering where you SLC guys buy and look at guns? Up here in Cache Valley there really aren't any good gun stores so when I am in Salt Lake and needing to burn some time I'd like to know the best spots to handle and look at guns.

You can try Get Some as you've mentioned. I believe it is 12$ an hour though, to use their range--brand new too.
You can go to Sportsmans Warehouse, Cabelas, Doug's Shoot'n Sports too.
There are some others but I am short on time & need to go. Hope this helps a little.

Instead of one of the big chain stores check a few low overhead local ffl dealers.. taylorgunsmithing.com always has a booth at the local crosroads gunshow and they're awesome to work with. Another is Golden Spike Guns just off 35th & Redwood, I got a stainless Mini-30 (NIB) at GS for considerably less than (saved almost $400) MSRP, he ordered it from Davidson's and charged me 10% over dealer, distributor fedex'd to ffl and I picked it up! :D

FBMG is a fun store, south of 123rd S on Minuteman Dr (Frontage rd). He caters mostly to military folks, but will order just about anything you want and give you a good deal on it. www.fbmginc.com

Thanks for the ideas. I actually bought my first handgun at Sportsman Warehouse. Cabela's is fun but is always too crowded for my liking. I prefer the smaller, more cozy gun stores. Nice to talk to someone that knows whats going on rather than the hourly clerk.

I will try Impact, Dougs, and FBMG next time I'm down there. Thanks for the recommendations.

I can't believe no one has mentioned Gallenson'sâ€"my personal favorite. It's downtown. The address is: 166 E 200 S.

+1 for Gallensons. Steve Gallenson is a great guy and an avid hunter. His staff is very knowledgeable most of them are former LEO. They are always up for a good haggle session and provide excellent service.

+1 regarding Gallensons. I buy a lot of my accessories there. I haven't had a lot of luck with special orders (waited a number of months for some plastic bullets that never arrived), but oh well. They have a good selection of new and used guns along with holsters and other accessories. It reminds me of a real mom and pop store, so different from Cabelas and Sportsmans.

I liked Get Some when I went, but their show floor was so small, I kept feeling like I was going to trip over the ammo cans littered about.

I have bought from Gallensons and Cabelas, but I prefer to buy from my dad (he's a FFL), the deals are better with him :lol:

I forgot about Gallenson's. They are really good and they have some of the better prices around on ammo.
I have bought ammo and holsters at Gallenson's, people who don't line in state can't buy guns.
