    Any good Gun 'accessory' Shops near LAX?

    Hi all, I have a day of Christmas shopping in LA on my way home and wanted to know of any good gun shops not to far from LAX?
    Only after accessory/tools/cleaning type stuff, so no permits required at either end...

    Any suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks Grant

    There is nothing really handy to LAX, and by the time you take taxi fares into consideration, you will be far better off by buying online from NZ and paying postage. Keep the shipment below NZ$300 and there will be no GST to pay.

    Grant, remember that is the gun hating, Soviet State of Commiefornia, so don't expect any goodies worth your time.
    They have even more restrictions on pistol grips/thumbholes and 10+ round mags than we do.

    Thanks.
    Visited Turners Outdoorsman 18305 Hawthorne Blvd in June. There was a note on the door saying they had nil stock of .22LR ammo, so please don't ask, or .30 cal projectiles.
    A range of pistols under the counter and 30-odd black guns in the rack behind the counter, 4 or 5 wood/ blue rifles in the corner.
    The shop wasn't anything to write home about.
    I bought a Spyderco VG-10 steel handle cause I could.

    Any WallMart will do you. I always stock up on cleaning bits, patches etc. They have a good selection general hunting/shooting goods.

    There is a Big Five Sporting Goods in El Segundo. 8 mins for airport.

    Bass Pro Shops was interesting to wander through in Florida, included a laser tag type shooting gallery.

    There's one in LA but not near the airport, it's closer to San Bernadino, which is like flying into Auckland and wanting to visit Tauranga quickly.

    Well not as successful as i was hoping for, but still interesting to say the least...
    Managed to get another set of MBUS gen2 sights for my 12.5" and a BCM mod3 charging handle (out of mod4's), some crush washers and a set of Peltor Tactical sport electronic ear muffs... all at good prices...
    ...and nearly an Aimpoint Pro...

    I went to 3 Walmarts, and all pretty much out of everything... could not be arsed going to one of their supercentres as was lazy to drive that far.
    Did manage a few Big5's and Turners, they were ok, as well as a new 'Tactical firearms' shop... not sure what was tactical about it?
    ...Grant.

    ...it makes your eyes water when you see how cheap AR mags are, and they within reach, but yet to far...
