Sad news...the little local gun shop/gunsmith is closing in August. This place has been selling and fixing firearms for at least three generations. It's small with neat stuff packed in every nook and cranny...and the shop area is twice the size of twice the size of the sales area. There is an amazing display of High and
Low Walls, Ballards, Rolling Blocks and Sharps that belonged to the original owner, who was a target shooter of some renown. If you need a part or weird or obsolete ammo...odds are they have it. A true gun shop of my youth....20% off everything..

    I'd be interested in the odd stuff especially relating to S&W

    It's always painful to see these places go away. There aren't enough of them left as it is.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.
