I am going to be in Tampa 22 April till 1 May and curious if there are any "must see" gun stores. I am sharing a rental car and my work schedule is going to be 12-14 hours a day for the entire period with unknown periods of time off.

If there is a must see gun store that's sort of near MacDill AFB or the Airport (staying at one of the nearby hotels), please let me know and I will try and make some time to go by. Other than that, I feel like this trip is going to be a ride on a slave galley and I am one of the oarsmen.

Uh, not really, all the gunshops are the same. IF your lookin for good service and lookin to buy a gun Id say goto Crackerboys in StPete. If ya wanna see a 3 million dollar indoor gun range that rents Full Auto, id say goto Knights , otherwise a store is a store is a store.

It doesn't sound like there are any outstanding stores in Tampa. I was looking for something along the lines of Jim's Pawn(Gun) Shop in Fayetteville, NC. One that has a large selection of high end rifles such as Accuracy International products plus a large line of AR type accessories such as optics, rails, etc.

You could try University Gun and Pawn at Fletcher Ave. and 22nd st.

They have a large selection of EBR's and some High End guns. I like 'em YMMV

There is only one really good store with a good selection of high end handguns, rifles and accessories. University Gun and Pawn on Fowler Avenue. They attend all the local gun shows as well.
