Probably depends on what you're looking for. If it's anything to do with black powder, Allan Vaisham is worth contacting - Green River Rifle Works, Cumberland Ave.

I've spoken to the guys at adelaide gun shop,seemed nice.
Fishers can be so so. But it's been a long time.
I mainly deal with tonkins sportscene in victor harbor,but recently I've been going to gunning 4 u,because the prices are vastly cheaper

Eurooptic are new but they seem quite good from what I have had to do with them.

Adelaide Gun Shop are good but don't seem to carry much stock, especially powder.

SARA are quite good but it can be quite a hassle that they are not open on Monday or Saturday.

However, they are all very expensive compared with eastern states gun shops. Unjustifiably expensive in my opinion.

1 vote for C and S Sporting Arms. I've only been there a couple of times with a mate when he got his but service is A1 and more than happy to answer all your questions.
Easy come, easy go.

Bridge hunting supplies at Murray Bridge is also worth a look. One man show, I've always had good customer service from him. I appreciate that he knows and greets me and my boy by name every time we walk through the door. I can't say that for any of the other shops in Adelaide.
