Hi Rex,

Actually you can check out Turners located on Azusa Blvd. about a mile north of the 10 freeway. They do not have a big selection of USED guns, but they have the discontinued gun list and the bi-weekly sales. These items should be priced very well.

You might want to also checkout Gunslinger Gunshop in Glendora and Gunsight in Fullerton.

Just thought I would add my recent experiences to the thread.

I went shopping for an SA-XD last month and visited Turners in Pasadena as well as Turners in Covina. I also stopped by Gunrunners in Duarte.

My initial visit to Turners in Pasadena was terrible. The salesman was rude, spoke poor English, and abandoned me as soon as I mentioned I would not be purchasing that day.

I waited until the weekend and drove around to see who else was in the area. I stopped by Turners in Azusa and was impressed with the friendly help there. They were quick to assist (even on the weekend) and were cheerful to deal with.

I also made a trip to Gunrunners in Duarte. The guys (well, guy) were very nice and helpful. Unfortunately they did not stock any 9mm XDs and could not tell me a price on the bi-tone model, and judging by the markup on the standard version, I estimate it would have been $20-$30 higher than Turners. I was not in a hurry to buy but was disappointed that I could not get a firm price on what I thought was a popular model. And considering the inflated cost of firearms in California, the potential price difference was enough to matter to me.

I paid a second visit to Turners in Pasadena, and this time dealt with Brian who was, by far, the nicest salesman I've ever met. Period. I suppose it was helpful that I knew what I wanted, so he didn't have to sell me anything. Long story short, I was in and out in about 30 minutes after paperwork. I picked up the XD on Wednesday and I am completely satisfied.

In conclusion: Depending on your particular needs, I believe all three stores should be considered "Good gunshops", and are competitive in both pricing and customer service.

Centerfire Firearms on Central Avenue in Riverside is absolutely the best of the bunch.

Five to seven months ago, give or take.

I got my first 10/22 from Turners in Pasadena about 2 months ago. There is a gentleman named Bob there and he is a neat guy to talk with.

Don't forget Rich's Arms in Whittier. He has a small shop, but keeps a lot of guns in the back. Rich does a lot of estate sales, and often has nice used guns at what I'd consider bargain prices with today's market.

He gets a lot of SB15 unapproved older pistols which I find interesting. Turners has pretty routine stuff, and a lot of other shops are frighteningly expensive.

My uncle has had good luck with Greta's Guns in Ventura couty, but I haven't dealt with them yet. I have had nothing but good experiences with Rich though- he's a good guy.
