The super reliable GP 100 is a six-shot double action revolver manufactured for strength and performance, creating one of the strongest medium frame revolvers ever manufactured. As for its stopping power – it is a .357 Magnum; you won’t be receiving any complaints from an assailant.
A step above the basic Ruger LCP, the LC380 ACP incorporates the advanced design elements of the LC9.

Easy to shoot and light on recoil, the LC380 pistol provides the protection you need for self-defense. As it is with almost any compact firearm, sights are rather difficult to see due to their small size. A laser takes care of that, or a bit of red paint to the sights. Laser Max is available on some models.
Slightly larger than the LC .380, the Ruger LC9 provides a little more gun to hold onto for those with larger hands. The firearm is a double-action semi-automatic pistol designed for concealed carry. The LC9 uses a 7 or 9 round box magazine, and an adjustable 3-dot sight.
Modeled after the classic M1911 pistol this semi-automatic, single-action firearm provides nice groupings and is a quality constructed and attractive firearm. The barrel and bushings are produced from the same bar of stainless steel for optimal quality. The 1911 and its modern variants never grow old to those who want classic quality in guns for sale.

The CX4 Storm accepts full-size Beretta magazines from the .45 ACP, .40 S&W, 9×19 Parabellum, PX4 series 9×21 IMI, Cougar and 92/96. The convenience of using the same ammo with pistol and rifle has made the CX4 Storm a favorite among guns for sale.
The CX4 Storm was developed for its use with Beretta semi-automatic pistols. The shooter has the ability to use the magazines from his Beretta pistol in the CX4 Storm of the same caliber.
It is not a new concept. In the old west cowboys and settlers carried rifles and handguns of the same caliber in order to lighten the load of ammunition they had to carry. It goes to show, convenience never grows old, and remains a seller among modern guns for sale.
The CX4 Storm features an extendable Picatinny rail under the barrel, and also includes a side rail with two mounting screws. A top rail is available for separate purchase. The CX4 Storm can utilize up to five Picatinny rails with Beretta accessory kits. The user can utilize the two included rails for attaching a variety of optics, lights, lasers and more.

AR-15 | AR-15 Accessories
GrabAGun provides the largest selection of AR-15 accessories available online. We carry an extensive selection of accessories for your AR-15, from scopes and night vision, to rails, tactical lights and mounts, slings, suppressors, recoil pads and much more.
The popular AR-15 is well known for its accuracy and reliability, but it is the versatility of the gun that is the crown of the AR-15 for sale. With the ability to exchange receivers, the AR-15 can provide multiple caliber weapon options and various configurations. The wide availability of parts and AR-15 accessories enable you to customize your AR-15 with the features you desire, and the ability to exchange parts and accessories for a different purpose in a snap.
Like a great number of rifles, the AR-15 was developed for military use, providing a durable firearm to withstand both harsh environmental conditions and heavy use. It is from this platform that today’s semi-automatic AR-15 was developed for public use.
Redesigned for the civilian market, the AR-15 has become America’s number one rifle with a continually expanding market of parts and AR-15 accessories.
Dominating in competitive matches, used for hunting, predator control, as home and perimeter defense, for target practice and used among the law enforcement and security community, the AR-15 for sale continues to enjoy a growing popularity.
The AR-15 is rapidly gaining popularity among hunters. It should be noted the standard AR-15 is a 5.56mm or.223, and the two rounds are not interchangeable. The .223 Remington can be used safely in a 5.56mm chamber, but it is unsafe to use the 5.56mm in a .223 chamber. The higher pressure of the 5.56mm round is too great for a .223 chamber. If you will be using 5.56mm, buy an AR-15 chambered for 5.56mm. You can use the .223 in it allowing you greater versatility; you just can’t use the other way around.
Furthermore, the 5.56mm is the best option of the two for big game hunting. The .223 will be sufficient for some of the larger game, but simply lacks the firepower to use for a general big game weapon and ensure a humane kill.
People often ask which AR-15 accessories they should have. AR-15 owners often accessorize their guns to the max, only to find it too heavy to be comfortable. Tactical lights are often added, whether they are used or not. If you will be using a tactical light after dark, it becomes a prized accessory; otherwise, just keep in mind, adding accessories will also add weight. Luckily, the AR-15s versatility also imparts ease of accessorizing, or removing them. One of the best investments in AR-15 accessories is a sling. It frees up your hands, enables you carry more and can help you to hang on to your gun.
Pay extra for the chrome lined barrel, or other lining that will extend the barrel life. Don’t use jointed cleaning rods, doing so can damage the interior finish of the rifle.
If you are going to mount a scope or other optic, select a flat top rifle or ensure you purchase a rifle with a removable carry handle. Mounting a scope will be easier.
From a legal standpoint (in the event you have to use the gun to defend yourself), it is better in the long run to purchase the features and AR-15 accessories you desire factory installed. Not only will accuracy, performance and safety be assured, but if you have to defend yourself, the criminal’s family couldn’t claim your rifle was an unsafe weapon altered by yourself. As unbelievable as it sounds it is a factor used successfully in civil lawsuits against victims of crime who have used their gun in self-defense.

.45 Colt vs. .44 Magnum | Guns for Sale
The .45 Colt has been around long enough to have a solid reputation, since 1873 in fact. It has fought in numerous wars and proved reliable in all. The only blight on its service record was the original frames would not withstand additional pressure. It was this fact that led to the development of the .44 Special which in turn gave rise to the .44 Magnum. Today’s guns for sale are engineered with precision for strength, durability and accuracy.
Due to its heavy recoil not just anyone can-or will-shoot a .44 Magnum pistol. You can’t beat a .44 Magnum for dispatching a wounded bear or a ticked off feral hog that is charging you. If you use a .44 Magnum for personal defense and use it-the criminal isn’t likely to get back up.
The reason less persons own a .44 Magnum than a .45 Colt is due to its recoil. It is often called a beast and it is indeed. The sight of it is enough to send some would be attackers running for the hills. Though not as popular as when it was first introduced, the .44 Magnum still receives a great deal of respect among guns for sale.
There are big game hunters prefer to use the .44 Magnum. Other hunters carry it into the woods to dispatch wounded and dangerous game or predators. The .45 Colt is easily designated a personal defense weapon, and compared to the .44 Magnum is easier to shoot.
When placed side by side you realize the .45 will create a larger wound. That is due to the .45 caliber being true to its size, while a .44 Magnum is actually a .429. Wound size is everything in how fast the target will bleed out, be it a deer or a thug. The .45 caliber has the advantage in this factor, as well as being more manageable for those who dislike heavy recoil.
For those shooters seeking a personal defense weapon, the .45 Colt factory load provides the firepower, the reliability and the ability to control and follow up the shots that you need. Self-loading hunters can fire it up to handle anything dangerous coming from the woods.
If you don’t self-load, a .44 Magnum pistol will provide the velocity you want for a hunting pistol. As is often the case with gun selection, your personal preference, shooting skills and purpose will provide the deciding factor. However, it should be noted that the .45 Colt will provide for greater flexibility when considering between a .44 Magnum vs. .45 Colt guns for sale.
GrabAGun is an online gun dealer offering an extensive selection of guns for sale with discounted pricing. You aren’t likely to find our selection available in most gun shops. In fact, we offer guns not listed on our site. If you don’t find the model and features you desire in our online offerings, give our knowledgeable customer service agents a call.

Double Barrel Shotguns | Guns for Sale
Double Barrel Shotguns-Over-Under
There are two types of double barrel shotguns, the over-under, and the side by side. Double barrel shotguns once used two triggers that allowed for each barrel to be discharged. In time, the single selective trigger (SST) that allowed it to alternate between the two barrels when firing. Today’s double barrel shotguns are typically the most costly shotguns you can purchase among guns for sale.
Today, the over-under shotgun is used for sports such as trap, clays and skeet, and waterfowl hunting. The choke design of double barrel shotguns allows the shot group to converge at a particular range, usually the maximum distance. Each barrel can be individually set for distance at the point of convergence. This means one barrel can be set to fire at a closer range, while the other barrel can shoot a further distance.
Hammerless shotguns were in use in Europe in the early 19th century. By the 1930s the over-under design started to replace the side by side in the U. S. due to the high cost of side by sides.
The over-under is typically finely crafted with a sleek design, it may be embellished with engravings, premium wooden stocks and other cosmetic extras. This is the reason they typically cost more among guns for sale.
The over-under generally features less recoil than other types of shotguns, partially due to its greater weight.
Break open action, also called breech-loading, is the most common for over-under shotguns. The opening of the action can also be used to cock the shotgun.
Double Barrel Shotguns-Side by Side
Side by Side shotguns are typically more expensive. Finer craftsmanship typically results in higher prices. Recoil is typically greater in the Side by Side than other types of shotguns. Today’s side by side uses a single selective trigger that alternately fires both barrels. Both barrels can’t be fired at once, as the single trigger has to be pulled twice to fire both barrels.
Some side by side shotguns utilize an inertial system. In an inertial system the recoil of firing the first barrel toggles the trigger to the next barrel. This system will function best with the heavier shotshells, as using lighter shot with lower recoil does not reliably toggle the inertial trigger resulting in an occasional failure to fire of the second shot, requiring a manual selection of the second barrel to fire.
The production of side by side shotguns eventually priced themselves right out of production. In recent years a few companies have returned them to production, but their price remains beyond most shooters means or desire to pay for guns for sale. Especially when other more modern shotguns among guns for sale can be purchased for considerably less.
The double barrel shotgun that remains popular due America’s fascination with the old west is stage coach guns. In good condition, these historic guns are highly desired, fetching premium prices, especially if they authenticated to be associated with the stage coach service of Wells and Fargo.
Contrary to what most people believe, there was no single manufacturer of coach guns which were offered in barrel lengths of 12 to 20 inches. In some cases, gunsmiths cut the barrels of shotguns down to length.
Some of the early manufacturers were Buckley, Burgess, Colt, Hunter, Ithaca, Lefever, Parker, Remington, Savage-Stevens, and Sharps to name a few. An authentic stage coach gun that can be proven to be related to a Wells and Fargo stage coach can be worth a great deal of money today, and are treasured by collectors. The history of our country is prized by its citizens and is best exemplified in what collectors are willing to pay for Civil War and Old West collectibles, and especially its guns.

We will locate and provide a price with the GrabAGun discount on any available firearm you desire. Give our helpful customer service agents a call today for assistance with any guns for sale.

Shotgun Features for the Waterfowl Hunter | Gun Sales
Innovation and technology are routinely advanced in the firearms industry. Some advances are not welcomed by the shooter, such as smart gun technology, while others are clearly an improvement. It is the innovative features of firearms that improve shooting comfort, and improve accuracy that help to fuel gun sales.
Those who hunt waterfowl hunt in wet conditions, and require a shotgun that can endure the environment, and everything weather can throw at the hunter. For those who hunt in the waterfowl’s watery environment, modern technology has risen to the occasion, developing the technology needed to produce a shotgun tough enough to endure, and provide the features to improve the hunt in the often harsh conditions of the waterfowl hunt. The following features are those with the waterfowl hunter in mind, and provide benefits that you may want in your next new shotgun.
Manufacturers have taken to task the wet and even cold environments that waterfowl hunters face. By developing corrosion resistant coatings for gun barrels and receivers, manufacturers prove they take note of the hunter’s needs in gun sales.
Manufacturers are applying new technologies to the guns internal surfaces that can suffer from rust as well. These corrosion resistant barriers were developed to protect against the harsh environment and inclement weather that frequents the habit where waterfowl are found, and hunters frequent.
Shotguns that Conform
Synthetic stock systems enable stocks to be adjusted, providing the ability to lighten the gun, as well as the means of providing a more custom length for individualizing a gun. Manufacturers are listening to customer demands for versatility, with a growing number producing adjustable stocks, with some providing double duty as recoil pads.
No Slip Grip
Conventional textured stocks are often slippery in the wet conditions of waterfowl hunting. Today’s manufacturers are providing heavier texture and rubber inserts for a more secure grip. Some are even created for not only wet but cold environments to aid the waterfowl hunter in reaching his bag limit on the coldest and wettest of days.
Easy to Clean
Versatility and convenience has become a driving force for fueling gun sales among American hunters and shooters alike. The act of cleaning a firearm isn’t being neglected by manufacturers. Guns that break down into simple parts without the risk of lost springs or other parts have been embraced by the American public, the result is manufacturers are following suit to answer the demand for convenience in gun sales.
Oversized Trigger Guards
If you have ever tried to shoot in below freezing temperatures with sleet or rain pelting you, you know how stiff cold fingers can put a damper on hunting. Even worse than fingers that feel like wood is a trigger guard too small to accommodate gloves. Select a model with an oversized trigger, the next time you hunt in freezing conditions you will be glad to have the extra space for warm gloves. If you have never hunted with gloves, give yourself ample time to practice before the first hunt. It does take some getting used to.
Select Your Weapon
The pump shotgun is still a favorite among waterfowl hunters for its reliability. Modern hunters are embracing new technology by selecting shotguns with recoil reduction systems for their ability to enable greater accuracy, and gas systems for a cleaner and more reliable shotgun. Due to the high demand for firearm modularity and the entrance of the shotgun into the field of versatility, you can count on further innovations to enter the shotgun realm of gun sales, and that of the waterfowl hunter.

Concealed Carry Pistols | Gun Shops
Selecting a concealed carry pistol is an individual decision that will be based upon your own preferences, needs, lifestyle and abilities that will influence what pistol you select for a concealed carry weapon. Once you have made your decision and chosen a pistol, shop our site for the best prices before you visit gun shops. You will find GrabAGun to have the lowest prices, as well as an extensive selection of firearms.
Some of the factors that will most likely influence your decision include the pistol’s weight, size, caliber, design, barrel length, capacity, ease of concealment and where you plan to conceal the weapon.
Your first decision is whether to carry a semi-automatic pistol or a revolver. There are advantages and disadvantages to each to consider in your selection of a concealed carry pistol. When shopping for a concealed carry whether online or in gun shops keep the following in mind:
SEMI-AUTOMATIC CONCEALED CARRY PISTOLS
- Provides a larger capacity of rounds
- Faster to reload using magazines
- Easier to conceal
- Has more parts to wear out
- Harder to clear a jam
- Racking the slide is more difficult for some persons
REVOLVER CONCEALED CARRY PISTOLS
- More basic operation, fewer parts; less to go wrong
- Easier to operate, simply point and shoot. Petite women, the elderly or disabled are more likely to be able to fire a revolver, than to manage the slide of an automatic
- More reliable
- Easier to clear a jam
- Easier to grip and retrieve from your concealed carry location
- Fires with direct contact to an assailant’s body
- Generally more accurate at longer distances
- Tolerates lack of maintenance better
- If it fails to fire simply pull the trigger again
- Generally more affordably priced
- Less finicky about ammunition. You can fire mixed loads (of the same caliber, of course!)
- More difficult to conceal due to the bulge of the cylinder
- Slower to reload, each cylinder has to be individually loaded.
- Has a limited capacity of rounds, typically 6 maximum.
The best concealed carry pistol selection is the one you are most accurate and comfortable with. A reliable firearm is only half of the equation. The other half is accuracy, which requires a great deal of practice to achieve and to maintain. You have the option of having different pistols for concealed carry. When you are in a suit you can carry a larger concealed carry in a shoulder holster, but may need a pocket pistol when jogging in shorts and a t-shirt, for example.
GrabAGun offers an extensive selection of guns for sale. You will find pistols, rifles, and shotguns by a tremendous assortment of manufacturers.
Our inventory doesn’t stop on our website. If you are tired of visiting gun shops looking for a particular weapon we can help you.

AK-12 – The Next Generation | AK-47 for Sale
In 20 10, a new generation of the venerable AK-47 for sale was introduced with the AK-200. The AK-200 is gas operated with a rotating bolt firing action chambered to fire the 5.45×39mm, 5.56×45mm NATO, and 7.62×39mm cartridges from detachable box magazines, a casket magazine or the RPK-74 styled drum magazine. It was designed to accommodate the addition of a Picatinny rail.
By 2013 the AK-12 (formerly the AK-200) was developed with a rail for optics, and available with a wider range of calibers to include a 6.5mm still under development, a 6.5 mm Grendel and 7.62×51mm NATO.
Trials in 2013 revealed numerous problems with the AK-12, but the precise nature of the problems were not revealed, only that they would be corrected. The Russian government declined to accept the AK-12 produced at Ishmash Arms by Mikhial Kalashnikov and Vladimir Zlobin. Additional models are planned, including a Carbine (AK-12U), a compact carbine, submachine gun (PPK-12), sniper rifle (SVK-12), a light machine gun (RPK-12). A civilian variant will be produced in .223 Remington and 12 gauge.
With the new AK facing numerous setbacks from the start, it has to be said that it is a tough act to improve upon the original AK-47 for sale but the AK 12 does just that, provided of course, all the bugs can be worked out.
The replacement of the wooden furniture reduces the weight to just over 7 pounds. The addition of rails enables the attachment of scopes, lights and other accessories. Greater accuracy would be an improvement, but the typical AK was never intended to be a long range weapon. I have seen pre-bans with the slider to automatic routinely produced 2 inch groupings. Accuracy with a gun is similar to driving a car in one respect – some cars are harder to steer, but it is still up to the driver to keep it between the lines.
However, accuracy isn’t what made the AK-47 so popular. Rather, it is the fact it is so easy to use, easy to repair and its reliability in even extreme conditions. The windy, dry sandy conditions of the Middle East and the massive number of AK-47s used in the region are a testament to the guns durability.
Another reason for the AK-47s popularity is price, while the milled gun will cost more due to the hundreds of machining’s it requires, a stamped AK is one of the most affordable guns of its class, and will last just as long as it’s more expensive counterpart. The main difference you will note between the two is the smoother action on the milled AK-47 for sale.
Ammunition is for the AK is cheap, adding another reason for the continued popularity of the rifle among modern guns for sale.
The AK-47 for sale is available in various chambering’s. The 7.62×39mm is the most common, with 7.62×54R for long range shooting, 5.45×39mm and 5.56 NATO.
As for the AK-12, news has been sparse since the Ukraine troubles. Nevertheless, AK enthusiasts will be watching the guns continued development and availability in the not too distant future.
GrabAGun offers a large selection of AK-47 accessories and AK-47 parts, as well as a large selection of the AK-47 for sale in numerous brands and configurations. If you fail to find the specific model and features you seek after shopping our site, give our knowledgeable customer service agents a call, we will be glad to help you.

Hunting Dogs | Guns for Sale
GrabAGun offers a large selection of quality guns for sale. Among our tremendous selection of guns for sale are fine quality shotguns for the bird hunter in your family.
My dad used the English Pointer to hunt quail, though we called them “bird dogs”. The pointer is an instinctive hunting dog. The most difficult task of training our pups was teaching them to control their enthusiasm and hold.
Dad used a handkerchief tied to a line at the end of a fishing pole. The handkerchief was dragged along the ground and would “take flight”. The commands were given, though now some 50 years later I don’t recall them all. I do remember the all important “hold” command. I watched dad’s every move, and one summer I started training the latest litter of pups myself. I don’t recall my age, I could have been 5 or 7, it has simply been too long ago for me to remember.
When a pup got it right, I lavished such a petting on the “good dog” that the pup would be all over itself with joy. Dad caught me training his dogs one day, and started to lecture me, saying they were too young, but he saw that all the pups were in true form, front paw up, tail pointing and all were in the “hold” position. He told me to go right ahead. He never interferred until it was time to take them to the field.
He sold the pups for double the usual price, and had requests for more. Every single pup performed flawlessly, and for the next few years Dad received numerous requests a pup, and was offered as much as $600 for a pup trained by me. It was true then, just as it is now, that a good dog could cost you more than good hunting guns for sale.
As an adult, I recognize my success was due to the love I gave them. When those pups did wrong I refused to pet them, telling them sternly they were a “bad dog” and ignoring them. They learned because they loved me and wanted to please me.
Dad waited to introduce gun shot until it was time to take the dogs into the field for the first time. Some dogs were inevitably spooked.
One pup I had trained didn’t adapt to gunshot the first day in the field. I took the dog into the yard and fired my cap gun until he was used to it. Dad then fired his shotgun, while I reassured the dog. In time, he overcame his fear of gun shot. The next litter learned the sound of the gun very early on.
Eventually, Dad gave me my first gun, his old .22 rifle that was his first purchase among guns for sale. It was my reward for showing him a better way to train pointers.
The simple technique we used produced English Pointers’ that performed flawlessly. Perhaps it doesn’t need improvement, but if I were to train a pointer today I would use a more realistic ‘bird’.
Listing the other factors based on my remembrance of my childhood stint as a trainer, I would suggest persistance, patience, reward them with love for a job well done, and “punish” them for a poor performance by withholding attention. I would also recommend getting them used to sound of the hunting gun very early on.
There are many memories of fall days in the fields tagging along with my Dad to watch new pups go through their paces. The most fulfilling was watching the pups I had trained all by myself providing a flawless performance, and seeing the pride in my Dad’s eyes when he looked at me. In some things, humans and animals aren’t that different in what motivates them.
