The Good

  • Affordable Prices
  • Search Function
  • Online Selection

Affordable Prices

Bass Pro Shop sells firearms for relatively affordable prices. These affordable prices are suitable for those with any budget. The Bass Pro Shop online selection may be a good place for first-time gun buyers to start their journey as beginner firearms and other accessories are available for purchase.

The well-known sporting goods store prides itself on helping customers with all of their outdoor needs. Bass Pro Shop does offer firearms within the $100 price range. These lower-priced options may work for those looking to buy a firearm for a youth or first-time buyer.

Search Function

The search option that Bass Pro Shop features on its site allows for easy on-site customer navigation. Customers can find what they are looking for without having to click through several pages. In order to obtain a list of related/exact items, customers simply need to search the name or get relatively close to the actual name of the item.

Online Selection

Bass Pro Shop also has a decent range of firearm types ranging from beginner firearms to firearms designed for the expert marksman/seasoned shooting pro. Bass Pro Shop's firearm categories include shotguns, rimfire rifles and pistols, centerfire pistols, and air guns. The online outdoor retailer sells firearms from popular brands like Beretta, Browning, Colt, Daniel Defense, Remington, Ruger, Smith & Wesson, Winchester, and more.

In addition to its online firearm selection, Bass Pro Shop has a wide selection of ammunition, optics and scopes, gun parts and accessories, gun storage items, reloading supplies, personal defense firearms and accessories, and more for purchase.

The Bad

  • Limited Selection
  • No Comparison Tool

Limited Selection

In comparison to other large online firearm retail stores, Bass Pro Shop's firearm selection is a little sparse. The company appears to focus more on its wide range of outdoor products like hunting, fishing, and camping gear than its online firearm selection.

No Comparison Tool

Bass Pro Shop, unlike many of its online competitors, does not offer an online comparison tool which makes it a little difficult for customers to compare products even if the firearm selection is relatively limited. Potential customers will have to spend time manually comparing each product and price before making a purchase.

The Bottom Line

While Bass Pro Shop has done a great deal to improve its selection of firearms and ammunition, it is not solely a gun and ammo online store, but rather an outdoor and fishing retailer that also happens to sell firearms and ammunition. That being said, it offers a number of affordable options for budget-conscious consumers, including firearms that are California compliant, as well as muzzleloaders, youth firearms, and left-handed firearms.

Bass Pro Shop appears to still be a solid choice for customers with basic gun-and-ammo needs. Those interested in Bass Pro Shop's firearm and ammunition selections are encouraged to visit the company's website and read relevant Bass Pro Shop customer reviews before deciding to make an online purchase.

When buying ammo I rarely find a wide selection. I can find shells for 12 ya target just fine though but the specialty Ammo is a hard find.

Bass Pro Shops is great at catering to the outdoor enthusiasts. They can get you outfitted for whatever fishing goal you have. You can be a novice or an expert wilderness hunter and they have what you need. And for great prices too. Hard not to love Bass Pro Shops!

I really like this store. Whenever I am stumped on what to buy my husband I go here. Since he is a hunter they have everything. The staff is very helpful in helping you finding things too! Not to mention the kids love to go just to play with all the stuff they have.

Bass Pro Shop is the best hunting store I have been to. The store itself is great to walk around in because it make you feel comfortable. The store is very open which allows you to see everything and go where you want.

As a long customer i have always purchased in the store, today i made my first online purchase where i find out you can only apply5 gift cards at one time for an online order. As an avid outdoorsman all my family an friends get for the holidays are gift cards so being said the online store offers a wider variety products then the store but doesn't allow you to use unlimited gift cards which is BS total scam in my opinion sure you can ship to store an apply all your gift cards but why not let us use them online unless your going to limit us so you can double up on your money!!!

You can buy virtually everything they sell for much, much cheaper almost anywhere on-line. The inventory of firearms is middling at best. And for a large company, they always seem to be low on ammunition when it is readily available everywhere else. I have no idea how they were rated #1
