I buy their blue label glocks. Their blue label glocks come with 3 15 rd mags. Do they sell that glocks to me with 15rd mags? Of course not, they swap them out for 10rd mags after they ask me "are you law enforcement?" And I say "no".

But like everyone says, some of their rifles are fixed mag so they will have the "scary" options and some are for out of state or Leo customers.

It is a little odd putting that stuff on the shelves just as set dressing.
 
But I guess if you got it, show it off. It isn't like anyone is going to try and steal it (or at least they are not going to succeed).
 
Probably the safest those guns could be is in direct line of sight of the shop owner. 
 
Keep what you want to keep in your crosshairs... so to speak.

So I went to dsi for the first time yesterday and I'm no lawyer but are half the firearms that they are even selling legal in ny. I wanna pickup a 1522 but I know it's illegal do to the pistol grip. But they seem to be selling plenty of ny safe act disapproved guns.


They are legal... for law enforcement.

What's odd? You do realize that they are an online retailer don't you?, and people from other states do come there to browse.

Where would you suggest that they keep their stock?  The back room maybe?

 

Like in the old days when the VCR porn was in the back room and you had to know the code-word to see it,

and Hustler/Playboy was wrapped in plastic on the top shelf out of kids reach. :rofl

Umm OP as others have states ALL gun stores cater to civilian and law enforcement so the inventory will vary.

Note the reds tags on some of their offerings. If i remember correctly these are LEO only.

Very nice selection of other popular firearms besifes their own brand.

You're a n00b here so I'll ask....are you a n00b to the shooting world and gun stores ?  ALL gun stores have and display LEO only items. Where have you been living Patrick, under a rock ?

I am not concerned about DSI.

 

I am only concerned about some of their prices!  Do they ever sell anything for less than full retail?   When I was there last month, they had a "sale" on a case of Wolf Gold in .223 (55gr) for $400.   That's rediculous.   At the time, Target Sports is selling the same exact case of ammo for $310--with free shipping to your door (no tax).  That's just one example, but you can compare prices across the board and DSI is always on the high side.   I guess if you're looking for NY Compliant AR's that can be customized and you can't or don't want to build  your own, DSI is a great option--but you're going to pay top dollar for the privilege.

whats with the locking threads if they go off topic? some of the most informative threads resulted from diverging from the initial topic.

 

havent you ever learned some great things from youtube after just going there to do a quick check on something totally different? sometimes things change course, and you get alot of great information you didnt expect.

It was probably misinformation at one point it seemed. The poor guy who bought that AR was saying sorry for something he didn't do.

The internet will likely always have lower prices, mostly because they don't have the overhead that a brick and mortar store has. (especially in NY) Not to mention, places like Target Sports that realistically only sell ammo buy ammo from the manufacturer by the tractor trailer. With that amount of volume, they get discounts, which they can then pass on to their customers.. also with the volume they do, they likely aren't as strict on their margins. While a brick and mortar could sell 1000 rounds and make $20-30, the online dealers may be making $10-15 on 1000 rounds but know they'll make it up in the sheer volume they are doing.

About 10 years ago when I finally started getting back into guns, I went to SSS to price a 10/22. Mike spent a bunch of time with me and xplaining everything I needed to know about the rifle and the pros and cons vs. other rifles. I saw it about $15 cheaper at Dicks, so I went there to the mall to get it. Some kid behind the counter didn't know squat about any of the guns on display, but I got the rifle there anyway.

Later I realized that for such a small difference I should have supported my local guy. I feel bad about it to this day. I did spend thousands at SSS thereafter, but I do feel bad about that rifle sale. They really are the nicest guys around. I should have done everything possible to keep them in business.

If we don't support our local guys, they will be gone someday, and when the online guys won't sell to NY, we will be screwed.
