    I agree. VA Arms is a nice shop. Whenever I'm out in the area I always stop at Guns and Ammo Warehouse and VA Arms. Probably the two best gun shops in NoVA.

    Bought the Glock from there. Great service and a good selection. Last time I went in there was right before Christmas and I barely could walk in the door because they were so busy

    Yep, both very good.

    I like Guns and Ammo... Very friendly and lots of stuff.. I also like Silver Eagle Group.. also very friendly and lots of new guns.. not so much a gun "shop" but more a "new gun sales area" of a range... but still nice.

    VA Arms and Guns & Ammo are great places to shop. I make the drive from Leesburg to buy from them over the local store just based on the people that work there, their attitude and their experience - plus their prices are better.

    Yeah, everyone at VA arms are real professional and nice. Same with Guns & Ammo Warehouse. I bought my glock at VA arms because G&A was out of stock. in fact, they're out of stock of almost everything at G&A last i checked. i really wanted to buy the glock at G&A, but they didn't have any G26's

    I bought my first handgun from Bernie as well (Kimber 1911). Great guy. Very friendly and helpful even though I was a complete newbie.

    Isn't this the same Bernie that was the subject of a thread a while back about his support of Obama and not supporting OC? Looked for it but my search-fu is weak today.

    If it was not Bernie but someone else, my apologies to him in advance. I'm just trying to keep straight who is who up there in NoVa so if I ever get that way with $$ in my pocket I'll know who/where to spend it and who to avoid.

    stay safe.

    VA Arms are good folks to deal with. I wouldn't hesitate doing business with them or recommending them to anyone.

    Blue Ridge was the one. If you go to Blue Ridge I would consider going to Silver Eagle or somewhere that actually cares about our rights

    Oh no, skid...that was the owner of Blue Ridge Arsenal.

    Bernie at Virginia Arms is unfailingly polite, considerate, friendly and helpful and under his leadership the staff are mostly the same.

    Virginia Arms can be an extremely busy shop on Saturdays, though, so if you want to look at something specific when they are busy patience may be required.

    I regularly vote with my business at Virginia Arms, Dominion Arms and G&A Warehouse. Dominion Arms is a different cup of tea . . . I enjoy the atmosphere there too.
