    New Fun Shop in Chantilly, VA

    I came across F3 Tactical on one of my usual trip to Lowe's. It's situated near the K-Mart, in the section of mini-mall that is perpendicular to Lowe's / Petsmart. The store is very well stocked with high-end gear (BFG, LaRue, Daniels Defense, HSGI, etc.) and is currently tailored to the carbine/rifle crowd. They have an extensive assortment of apparel and footwear, along with high-end uppers, optics, sharps, plate carriers, etc.

    Jimmy, the owner/general manager/shoot-the-***-guy, is a really nice fella. He's got a real passion for firearms, and I don't think the smile faded from his face the entire time I was in the shop. I spent a good while talking to him about my new Colt, how to get it slung up to my liking, how to lube it, etc. I had unknowingly been running the Colt too dry, and Jimmy quickly walked me through how to do a detailed strip of the upper and where to lube everything.

    I'll be visiting this store much more often as I configure the Colt to my taste. I'd like to see them get their FFL, and I'd visit much more often if they had reasonably priced handgun and rifle ammunition.

    Overall, I can highly recommend stopping by the store. They have probably 3x the floorspace of NOVA Armament with a much greater selection of gear. But most importantly, they're another small and local business that I want to survive!

    Thanks for posting this up, I'll definitely have to check them out. I'm always trying to find stores up here. Chantilly is a doable drive for a good one, I usually head out to VA Arms in Manassas for the "armament" part.

    The owner/manager has indicated their FFL is pending. I didn't ask for a timeline, but it's not something they've overlooked

    Nice. I'll see if I can make it up there tonight before they close.

    I just went by for the first time today. Prices were competitive and staff was friendly. Highly recommended.
