    Dear Folks: I will be taking a trip west in a few weeks and was hoping that some of you could make some suggestions as to gun shops/stores that I shouldn't miss. In broad terms, the route will be from southern Ohio to Helena, Montana, but the details of the route are yet to be determined. Your thoughts and suggestions are sincerely appreciated. Regards -- Steve

    It's not a store but the JW Davis gun museum is worth killing a few hours in, if I remember it's in Tallequah, OK

    If you drive throught South Dakota. On the east there is Gary's Gunshop in Sioux Falls. In the west is Jack First in Rapid City. Those are the two biggest ones in the state lots of small ones everywhere. I almost forgot Cabelas in Mitchell right smack dab in the middle on the interstate.

    Fredneck,

    The Davis Museum is in Claremore, OK just NE of Tulsa. Home of Will Rogers. It is a pretty cool place. They have some historic guns like one that belonged to Clyde Barrow and several others.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Any more you might remember would be appreciated. I've heard folks talk about a chain store that sells guns, but I can't remember the name. Do any of you know the chain I'm talking about and will I be anywhere near one. I know that's kind of vague, but it's the best I could do. Thanks again -- Steve

    You might be thinking of Scheels. There are two in Sioux Falls, SD. and one in Rapid City, SD. They have a good selection with a lot of very expensive behind glass collector items. But they will not dicker at all. What is posted on the price tag is what they mean.

    I have heard of some department store out west that carries a lot of old military surplus guns - sort of like the old Woolworths stores used to do. I am thinking it was Dunns or Duffs, or something like that.

    By the way Shooter22, thanks for telling me about Guns Unlimited last spring. I was there this summer and blew a wad. They have a big inventory.

    NeoDebo,

    I'm worried about those two guys in your pic. They are outside the World Famous Mustang Ranch and they have their arms around EACH OTHER!!! There's something wrong here.
