    Can I get recommendations for a good gun shop around Portland? I am heading out west in a couple days to get a gun, since I can't find what I want over here. Anyone seen a good looking 3" 1911 in a shop recently? Can you recommend a good shop to check out? Thanks guys!

    Keith's Sporting Goods
    (503) 492-6999

    Pretty much the best prices in town. It is the only place I go now.

    I'd like to second Northwest Armory. They're not nearly as uppity as other gun stores.

    Although Keith's has good prices and selection, you will encounter one of two things when you go there:

    1)Somewhat friendly and helpful service from someoneworking there

    2) Very unfriendly and unhelpful service from someone who will treat you as if you're an intrusion on their time.

    Most of the time you will encounter number two. Keiths is a big store with very good prices- probably better thanany dealer in the Portland area. As such, much of the time they are ********. They know they have the biggest selection, and they know they have the lowest prices, and they know they're going to have lots of sales with you or without you. This is why I'd rather pay more money and buy from a different store. I like good customer service, and Keith's doesn't have it.

    I have heard this before, but I have never experienced it any time I have been in their store or their tables at the gun show. I have bought several guns from them and lots of ammo, and never had one bad experience.

    I just bought a gun there today, It's a little small but there was great service and a pretty decent selection, very friendly owner.

    Both times I've purchased from Keiths, no problems at all. Neddis, go there. Maybe I might have to have you do some shopping for me while down there. :P

    I ended up buying a Citadel (made by Armscor) officer 1911 from Wholesale sports because nobody else in Portland had what I was looking for at the price I was willing to pay. I will go check out Keith's next time I am in the area though. thanks for all the suggestions, guys.
