    I need help finding shotgun retailers in Southern California. I seem to have trouble finding the shotguns I want to buy because all we have around here is Big 5 and Turners. Turners obviously has a bigger selection than Big 5 but they still dont carry a lot of the guns I am looking for. Any tips? I know I can buy online too but I still run into issues finding a seller who will ship to CA. Plus, its tough to buy a nice gun without seeing it first.

    Looking for someone that carries Beretta, Benelli, Franchi, Winchester Super X2/X3, Wingmasters, 1100s, 11-87s, etc.

    Unless it's higher grade models, Turners usually has a few on the rack.

    Also try Bass Pro near I-15 & I-10, big shop and hundreds of guns.

    Bass Pro has a huge selection, but I wouldn't buy from them. Prices are astronomical. Its a good place to shoulder the guns your interested in. Find something you like there, then look for a good online source to buy from and have it sent to a local FFL.

    BBB has a good selection as does Oaktree. Bob Dunn in Simi has some very top grade guns.

    Oak Tree has lots of guns and what they don't have, they can get. Talk to Sean.

    Triple B shooting park sells all brands. Most importantly, you can rent just about any one brand they sell and shoot a few rounds of trap, skeet and sporting clays to really get the feel of the SG.

    A bit pricey to shoot there. Nice restauarant and most locals are friendly.

    Go to Redlands with a pocket full ofmoney a regestered shoot day. You can find anything you want, just ask around and show the green.
