I'm going to be starting a job in Winnemucca this July.

Can anyone offer any info on the area, specifically good gun shops, places to shoot, etc?

Thanks.

I live 130 miles from Winnemucca, so I don't know too much about it other than what I see passing through fairly regularly.

Winnemucca is big enough for a Wal-mart, but not big enough for a Supercenter. It is however, the largest town within about 100 miles.

In Nevada most people just go out in the desert to shoot, as 80% of the state is public land.

Winemucca is a great little town....Ive partied there as a guest to the WildBunchMC whos website I do. I also do 3 websites for the city of Winnemucca. Some of the best fishing in the state is about an hour and half away. Lots of places to go shooting.........must be a gun shop or 2 in town Ive never looked. I live in Reno but go to Winnemucca ever so often...mostly for Run-A-Mucca partying. I do the Run-A-Mucca website also. Winnemucca is a great party town and believe me they know how to party. Its the wildest place Ive ever been. They have some cool yearly events...Mule Races LOL which I do the website for...Fifties fever which I do and getting ready to do another for the city. Nice people there, you will like it depending on what you like to do...its all there.

I'll be starting a Family Practice clinic for Humboldt General Hospital. I suspect I'll get to meet a lot of people through work.

Everyone I've met from the town so far was totally friendly. When I initially met the administrator of the hospital, he asked what I like to do for recreation. I mentioned cautiously that I like to shoot a little. He then says, "Do you have a .50 caliber? Those are cool."

I liked the fact that even people who aren't into shooting don't mind guns. People I've met from California look at me like I have two heads when I mention guns.

With luck I'll get to meet some of you guys for a shoot when I get out there.

Yeah I'll be there this year. Im always a guest of the WildBunchMC and friends with lots of Hells Angels...president of the Nevada Hells Angels is a very good friend of mine. So Im usually partying with those guys. I dont drink but they still out party me LOL. Actually there a bunch of real nice guys. Keep in touch and we will try and get together while your there for a quick visit. Ever do the CatHousePokerRun, the Nevada Reno Hells Angels put on every year at street vibrations???? I go out to the whorehouse and take pics for them of the bikes to put on the website. The president of the Hells Angels owns the Mustang Ranch/OBR, its a nice mellow atmosphere out there. Ive got free passe LOL but I dont use them.
