Default Used guns in Calgary?

I used to like to go to the Macload trail Canadian tire for used guns in Calgary, but last time I was in there they only had a handful of used guns. I don't know too much about wholesale sports but I don't think they have much of a used selection. Do any of the military surplus stores in Calgary sell actual guns or just military stuff?

I'd appreciate any info on possible sources for used or even new guns in the Calgary area.

You can try Pro Line shooters on 9th Avenue in Inglewood; or this weekend only there is the annual Easter gun show down at the BMO Centre ( formerly named the RoundUp Centre) down at the Stampede grounds. Its definately worth a look, the biggest gun show in Canada.

Yeah I think i will check out that gun show, the problem with WSS is they only seemed to carry high end used guns when i checked. Canadian tire used to have everything from fifty dollar .22s to the highest end rifles, but I guess there wasn't enough money in it. Is that Pro line shooters a very good place?

Forsure about Proline. Great guys & great service there. Kinda like a mom & pop operation still. I bought a Remington 700 CDL SF of them a few months ago, great service & prices were comparable to others also.

Default used guns

Rocky Mountain Gunsmithing in Okotoks usually has a very good selection of used guns. Very fair to deal with, better than most in the city.

I second Proline. A dying breed of shop and guys that work there with a ton of knowlage.

I have never had a problem with Russels. Maybe its a new guy on the counter but they have always been good to me and fairly priced.

And yes Wholesale owns Russels but UFA owns Wholesale......so whatcha goona do. Good ol`fashioned capitalisam at work.

The southside Cdn Tire in Red Deer store has a few used but the choice is slim. I saw a CZ 527 in 223 there the other day. Pristine condition and they make a nice rifle.

Default Okotoks gun shop

It is a home based business. 938-4818 is the number. Great to deal with, flexible on prices. Does good gun work also.
