I love great northern guns. When I was homeless they took me in. I am able to roam around and climb on the counters. People come in and pet me, the workers feed me, and clean out my potty box. And I hear things that no one thinks I am hearing.
For 43 years Great Northern Guns has been a part of Anchorage. It has remained fairly unchanged over the years. Yes it is small, yes there are only 4 guys behind the counter usually, yes they do serve coffee for free every day and have goodies on the counter for those who care to endulge. They are straight forward, honest, integrable men who will help you with anything if you ask.
Some may wonder why are they priced little over the competition? Well, large companies receive great kickbacks and discounts because of the volume that they order, great for them bad for a small shop. They do pay aproximately half for used gun purchases, as you may know anyone looking for a deal is going to throw out a lower offer on the gun hence the higher price. Some may think they are making alot of money on their gun sales, those people would be wrong.
Stop by and see me and the guys anytime. We would love to see you. I may even let you pet me if I am on the counter.
