I saw somebody post about this a while back. It's either in, or by Platinum VW in Hicksville. Anybody been in there, is it a store with merchandise, or just an FFL service?

It's in the dealership. As far as I can tell it's an FFL service and not a store but I have no personal experience.

My bet is that the manager there is a fellow enthusiast. Too bad my son got his GTI in Amityville...

Platinum Firearms is a great little gun shop. They are a full-service Firearms dealer. They sell pistols and long guns. They work by appointment. They can get you any gun you want at a substantially discounted price. They deal with over 50 distributors in the country. All of the owners are very friendly and knowledgeable. They do handgun and long gun transfers as well. They cater to law enforcement as well at discounted prices. If there is a specific gun you are looking for and are having trouble finding it, they will get it for you in a matter of days.

Platinum should introduce themselves on LIF. Seems like many people would shop there since it's close.

I emailed the owner not too long ago.  He got back to me right away and answered all my questions.  He said they do have some guns in stock, but you need to make an appointment.

Never heard of them before, but they have a website:    http://www.platinumguns.com  It would be great to have a local option that offers real discounts.  I would like to support B&M more than I do, but so many LGS's on the island seem to take advantage.   I went to look at a used rifle last week and the lgs was only knocking $50 off the MSRP for a new rifle--and this was a bolt gun that's been on the market for a few years and isn't unique or hard to find new.
