    Why spend money at gun sotres in Virginia with owners and employees with bad attitudes. Lets skip letting fellow Open Carriers have to deal with peoples attitudes by recommending certain gun stores in which you had a good exeperience. Also you can add the stores NOT to go to due to bad exepriences.

    So far Bob's Gun Shop has been nothing but good to me other than the fact not all of them know about the Open Carry but overall I love Bobs and the staff is also helpful. I recommend that store if your ever in Norfolk Virginia its on Granby street near Greyhound Bus station.

    Bad experience at Ron hess on Tidewater Driver. Guy doesnt want cell phones in his esablishment also if you havent done your research he will sham you. He tried to tell me I wont find any .45 auto ammo for my weapon yet mins before that I palnned to buy 1000 rounds of federal .45 hydro shock 230 grains. I just wanted to see if he could beat the price he did not give me a number he tried to force me into buying before he would give me an exact number I walked out. I plan on buying the 1000rd case at the next gun show unless someone knows where i can find them online for $600.

    Bad experience at (Old Dominion Gun And Tackle)in Danville Va., All the guy's in there are older, And there Not Very Friendly at all:X, Ok gun selection, I would give them a score of 1 out of 10.

    Good experience at (Raymonds Gun & Supply) in Danville Va. , There's only two older guy's that work there Raymond and one other, Kinda Friendly, willing to find it if you want it, sometimes will knock down price's, Ok gun selection, I would give them a score of 9.5 out of 10.


    Great experience at (Carter's Guns) in Danville Va. , There's only two older guy's that work there Carter himself and one other, Very Friendly, always trying to help you out, and willing to knock down the price's, Large gun selection, I would give them a score of 10 out of 10.

    Have always had good experience with Dark Sun Suplus. They have the best prices on everything, new used or surplus. Reason I heard Ron Hess is such a ***** is he does a lot of dealing with Norfolk PD and doesn't care about selling to others. Also Superior on VA Beach Blvd is way over priced.

    Well I drive past Tidewater drive almost everyday and never see any cars outside except the one for sell but every time Im in Bobs. There at least 2 NPD patrol cars outside and LEO's inside checking out weapons. So if "Ron The Hess Mess" is dealing with the NPD its under wraps. I talked with a guy yesterday and he told me two years ago Ron Hess killed two and wounded one who were breaking in his shop. Im not fully sure of any of it Im sure he wont get any of my money.

    I've visited the Armory many times (always OC!) and had good experiences. They moved a few doors down in the same strip a while back and now the shop is about three times as big, so you can actually move without tripping over stuff. Not always the biggest gun selection, but usually some great ammo deals. And they'll honor their website prices in the store if you ask.

    My other favorite in that area is Tidewater Military Traders (aka Classic Firearms). Mostly C&R type stuff. OC here, too.

    In NoVA, Virginia Arms in Manassas is one of my favorites. The crew always treats you well, and if you ever, ever have a problem with a gun you bought from them they will take care of it.

    Ron Hess is a world-class *****. Absolutely the rudest ******* I've ever met in my life. He thinks that you, as a potential customer, should feel honored that he would give you the time of day. I can't believe that this dickhead is still in business after all these years. He can lick me where I ****... DO NOT GIVE RON HESS YOUR BUSINESS PLEASE!!!!!

    Ron Hess has killed two robbers however that was several years ago, two different incidents. Guy definitely has a bad attitude but I chalked it up to expecting any stranger to come in shooting. Ex NPD too by the way. I bought a special order knife from him a while back. Was a little gruff with me but not too bad, then again I was in my EMS uniform at the time.

    Hunter's Heaven in Glouster Point is a nice place. Rather laid back. Pretty good selection of reloading supplies. They're easy to talk to and I've never gotten any "gun shop commando" attitudes there. I've started buying all of my reloading supplies there. Good prices. They're just barely over 4 miles from the bridge. Right on the main road. He's not completely out of ammo (yet).

    Well worth the drive.
