    Richard @ LBGS seems to go out of his way to help with all firearm related purchases. His prices are great and transfer fees are really low. Give him a try.

    Richard is a nice guy and goes out of his way to get what you want. Over two months for an order of mine.

    I got a Ruger SR1911 from him for $600 about a month and half ago. Great guy. Need to do a ammo buy from him for some 45acp rounds.

    Any updates on this one? Has anyone used him in the last year? Thinking of getting something from Bud's shipped to him.

    He went through some medical issues a year or two ago and his son took over for a while. I think he is back in the saddle again tho.

    Last I talked to him he was thinking about getting out of the game, seemed a little grumpy. It was a home visit for some ammo, he warmed up after a while but I got the impression he wasn't really that interested in taking orders and it was kind of a pain in his bum to deal with everyone.

    This is what I suspected him to be after the two prior reviews, especially with him being the proverbial kitchen table ffl.

    Anyway, guess I need to find somewhere else to be my ffl, mk tactical is listed but not "recommended" by Buds, nor did I check the transfer fee.

    If you don't mind travelling a little (not sure where you're located) I would recommend Troy Ribble at TJ Gun Sales in McMinnville. He's been the only guy I deal with the last 2 years. He WAS a 'kitchen table' dealer but is transitioning into a storefront in Mac currently. His garage was converted into a store. The 1st time there I was expecting more of a Little Bear thing but when he opened the garage I was hooked. He outgrew it and the neighborhood and is now relocating to the Mac location. One of the best. I live 75 miles away and drive to see him, order everything through him, ammo, optics, guns, etc, it's worth the drive.
