Discount Guns and Ammo is a retailer that has been in business for the past two decades. They have managed to accumulate a fair selection of firearms, including various specialized types like black powder, left-handed, and youth firearms. Though their selection is on par with industry trends, they are infamous for higher prices, as well as a return policy, which leaves much to be desired.
Though they may not stock all the brands that other retailers do, their selection of firearm types is impressive. Their black powder firearms are clearly categorized and certainly help their selection stand out among others. They have a few left-handed firearms, as well as at least one youth rifle in stock. Their California Compliant firearms are also clearly labeled- a huge advantage they have over many other retailers.
Their ammo selection is broad across the various types of firearms. They also sell blanks and various pieces of reloading equipment. Compared to their firearms, their ammo is fairly priced in general- you can usually find a good deal if you sift among the various brands.
Compared to many other gun retailers, Discount Guns and Ammo provides a more interactive platform for their customer service. They are heavily connected to social media and have a quick-response email system in place. This makes dealing with any defects and purchasing issues much more simple and is something that most other ammo and firearm retailers don't put much importance in.
One major downside that comes from shopping with Discount is their higher prices. The cost of their firearms is routinely steeper than those offered by their competitors. They do hold sales specials occasionally on certain firearms, but even those reduced prices can't compete with the wholesale prices provided by other retailers.
Discount Guns and Ammo has a rather strict return policy that, unless you're really careful, could end up costing you more than its worth to act on a warranty. Their restocking fees usually cost you about 25 percent of the original price, and they'll tack on an additional 15 percent if you've opened the box. Your choice is then between losing up to 40 percent on your original investment or getting a slightly higher refund in the form of in-store credit. Their policy isn't very forgiving and certainly isn't convenient for the consumer.
Their selection of firearms also excludes any automatic weapons or assault rifles. This prevents them from being a true "go-to" retailer for many firearm collectors. Though many of their accessories are compatible with assault rifle models, you'll have to find another vendor for the firearm itself.
