There's a store in Northern AZ which is smack dab between payson and flagstaff, called Clint's Well. They sell random stuff, including food, bottled coke, alcohol, tobacco, firearms, tools, and gas. It is the only store I know of like this. My dad says back in the day there was a drive through ATF store near his work. He said you'd have to go in to buy firearms, but you could get alcohol, tobacco and ammunition "to go."



So, do you folks know of any cool places like this?

Dynamite.  This was in the 1970s.

There was one in Rawlins, WY a few years ago.  





I have no idea if it is still there or not, I haven't been there in a while.



I also believe the old Wal-Mart in Casper, WY does.

Is Hiram's still around? I haven't been back to Cali since 2003...

Guns & canned vodka cocktails, those were some good times... At least what I can remember...

Edit - any Walmart "Supercenter" in a "wet" town here in AR. There's one less than 10 minutes from here.

We had a Fay's Drug store that did, they got bought out by Eckerds chain and forced to get rid of a great section they had with fishing, huntn, and CnR stuff.  

The drug store had tobacco, beer, and guns and ammo.  Immediately next door was the Fay's liquor store probably due to NY's extremely strict liquor laws.

Scenic Sports in Williston, North Dakota.



It's a gas station, liquor store, and sporting goods store. They sell guns, reloading supplies, archery equipment, fishing tackle, gasoline, whiskey, cigarettes, etc.

Ruff's guns in Flagstaff used to be Ruff's Guns & Liquor.  They also sold smokes.  I haven't been in there in close to 15 years.  I'm pretty sure they dropped the liquor and smokes and now just sell guns.  I remember buying 1200rd cases of 7.62x39 there back in ~95 for $60.  Man those were the days.  Burn through 4000 + rds in a weekend and no big deal.

There's a place near here that sells beer/wine, tobacco and is a gun shop.

There is a place in the thumb of Michigan that is a truck stop and gunstore all in one big room. You could get cigs, some booze, a shower, some Ice cream, and an AR-15 without going outside. I'd have to look at a map to tell you where it is.

Ruff's also used to be a drive-through.  Buddy swears he picked up his S&W 357 at the drive-through with a 6-pack just because.  (Had to go inside for paperwork, etc.)

I can't remember the name of it, but there is a place near Potosi Missouri that is part gas station, part convenience store and a rather large gun store.

I don't know if this place is still open. I bought an SKS from them years ago.

Not near me that I can think of.

There is a store by my Uncles house on the AL TN line that has big neon signs along the front of the store that read BEER, FIREWORKS, AMMO, BAIT, MEAT, PORN.

When I retire I was thinking about opening a store and call it the BATFE, "Brian's alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives" (firworks).

Schulenburg, TX.  double shot liquor and guns.

Burke's Convience Store

Broken Bow, OK



They also have a carwash and some damn tasty fried chicken. They sell tack and reloading supplies to boot. It's really a cool place that looks just like a conoco other than one of the headers over the window says firearms.

We have Bait Beer and Bullets just outside the city.

I will see if I can get a pic of their sign

I know why they have a drive thru.



Look at the signs.

I went to a place back in the early 1990's West of San Antonio that sold ammo, alcohol and plumbing supplies. I was on a College Geology field trip at the time. Several of us saw the Liquor sign when we pulled into a gas station to fuel the buses and ran in to stock up on alcohol before we got to Garner State Park.

I found it to be an odd inventory at the time. By the time our bus got to GSP, we were all so drunk we fell out of the bus laughing. I was hung over most of the trip. Maybe I should have bought ammo instead.

There is one on the east side of the cascades.  I want to say its in crescent Oregon.  

Big sign that says something to the effect of "Guns, beer, ammo..."

I stopped in a few times.  Decent selection of both.

That was the one that came to mind for me as well, although there several around here that sell alchohol and firearms, they don't specialize in only alchohol and firearms.  The Longs Drug store in Reno used to have a pretty good selection of both, but I haven't been in there in about 13 years.  I'll add The Fort in Big Timber, MT as the closest thing around here that I can think of.

Years ago while stationed in Germany....

I wandered into a shop looking for some good cigars.   One half of the store, was all tobacco and liquor, the other half was all guns and knives, with one counter in the middle.  I wish I had a camera to take pictures, it was sweet.

Been there. Quite the place, especially during paddlefishing season.

There used to be a store in Columbia, MO that had a big sign out front that said "Liquor, Guns & Ammo." The sign was bigger than any other sign on the place. I always figured it was the store's name. The store is now closed and the sign hangs in a local pizza joint.

But yeah, Walmart sells liquor guns and ammo . . .

If I started a gun store, I'd have at least one wall lined with trunks cut from junked cars with all the accessories on display, and I'd definitely try for the liquor permit. I think the cigs do not require a permit to sell, just have to buy'em from a distributor. Smuggled Fun would be a cool name, but I bet I'd have monthly MSP inspections...
