Stopped by on Thursday during lunch. I was in and out in about 1 minute. High prices on the tags and hot air behind the counter.

I didn't find them to be any better or worse than anywhere else. Nice enough guys, pretty attentive, and a decent knife case. Very different feel than Ruby's down the street, many more black rifles and polymer pistols. Then again, if I'm looking for an old surplus rifle or hunting shotgun, I'd try Ruby's first. Either way, I'm excited that now there's three shops within a ten minute drive of me.

+1, bought my first AR at Gun Trader back in 1994 just before the AWB.
Bloodsport2885: Because if your riflemen can't reach it, your marksman can. If your marksman can't reach it, your sniper can. If your sniper can't reach it, your arty/air can. If they can't reach it then fuck that target. He isn't even worried about you.

I just passed a place West of Long Rd on Chesterfield Airport Rd. he could be referring to that one or possibly Denny Dennison's.

Yes. Yes it does.

There's also On Target in Valley Park on Vance Rd.......then the new place next door to where On Target USED to be at 141 & Marshall. Then you have three shops in Eureka.

That's 9 shops in West County STL. I hope they can all survive.......generate new business and not have to feed off each other's exisiting customers.

Adventure Shooting on S Outer 40 in Chesterfield Valley. Good guys, very accommodating. They got shafted out of their previous location into the comparative shoebox they're in now. The guys there definitely want to make the sale and SEEM to understand that B.S. won't get it for them. Prices are about what you'd expect from a small shop in a wealthy area, but the stock there matches the prices. Lots of SIG, FN, and Glock pistols, Surefire products, and a really nice knife case (that's where I picked up my ZT). Treat them like regular people and they'll treat you pretty good.

Three in Eureka? I know of Tier One and Rockwood. Who's/where's the third?

Patriot Arms next to JP's bar. Nothing special, nice guys though. They're just getting started.
