    Does anyone know if Dunn's Sporting Goods is a dependable company to do Internet business with? I read 7 reviews on them, 3 people disliked them, the other 4 praised them.

    Festus I have dealt with Dunns Sporting Goods in Marion, Il and Paducah Ky for many years. I have never had a problem with them. Some items are a little higher than other places at time. I would recommend them. Especially the Marion Store, Managed by Dennis Dunn, the son.

    This one is in Peaveley (sp?) Missouri. They have a couple of items cheaper than I can find them elsewhere.

    That is their first store, been there for a very long time, they tried one up here by me in St. Charles but had to close it down after the Bass pro shop opened, their prices were just to high.

    I beleive Dean Dunn manages the store in Pevely; and all three are run by the same family. Was a customer when they ran a retail store in Florissant years ago and the St Charles store before they sold to Gateway Outfitters. I've even been to their Pevelly store on special occassion.

    Although I've never bought from them on the internet, have had nothing but good service when dealing with their retail stores.

    I realize I'm the new guy, but would highly recommend them.

    BTW, Gateway Outfitters; the old Dunn's, folded two weeks ago...had fishing tackle for 50% off...bought my own birthday and Christmas presents for years to come! I mean years!

    I live about 1 mile from the Dunn store in Pevely Mo.
    As others have said on this thread, they usually are a bit pricey on some stuff. That being said I've purchased some stuff there just because they are so close, and have a pretty big selection of stuff. The Pevely store parking lot is always full.

    Never done the internet with them, but have bought from them for many years with no problems. Yes, they normally have stuff that can be had cheaper at other locations, but they've always treat me right.

    Thanks for all the replys, my friends, I won't hesitate to do business with them. :wink: I'll look over the rest of their inventory and see if I maybe need a few other items.

    They are good guys. You can trust em. their prices might be a touch higher than the big stores like the other guys have said. They have been around for a while.

    Back in the mid 60's, they were a wholesaler to a lot of stores that sold ammo, guns & such.

    I've dealt with them a few times. They may be a little high but they are very knowledgeable in what they sell.
