    Doesn't matter. You're still supporting the mothercorp.

    While I prefer to support actual small businesses like SFRC, supporting local CT's that carry firearms is not without merit. A local CT that is willing to bring in guns like the NEA 102 is worth supporting. Get's guns into the public eye and "normalizes" gun ownership. And if local gun owners dont' make it worth their while to carry firearms, they will make a business decision and stop carrying them.

    Besides, IIRC SFRC is the exclusive distributor anyway, so they will get their cut, regardless if it is purchased at CT

    I would imagine CT is big enough that if they did decide to stock NEA rifles they could probably just buy direct from the manufacturer. Cabelas in Canada can do it with their guns, they don't need any distributors.

    IIRC if you aren't with the times, that's one of the many things that was exposed recently. Why certain big outfits can buy direct while small Canadian businesses are forced to buy from exclusive distributors which charged much more.


    That being said, SFRC is a stand up place, I've personally spent over 10 grand at their web store. I bet anything Chemist has gotten used to my extremely shitty looking PAL picture, as soon as he sees it he goes and finds multiple large boxes.

    Impossible. CT's prices are 15% higher than everyone else on EVERYTHING, especially ammo.

    But to answer your question: Neither. Because the other shop is clearly gouging on their prices, and because CT sucks period.

    Just remember, opinions are like anuses. Everyone has one. They all smell like excrement.
