I am going to be in the Bowling Green area for a couple days and will have a few hours to kill. Any suggestions?

Corvette Museum and tour and Vette Plant. Check to see if WKU has a home basketball game...

Are there any good gun shops or ranges in the area?

I moved about 7 years ago, so the only one that I know is still there is in Scottsville, KY - Joe Cheek shop. I have heard of another one there, but was always told it was high.

If you take the Natcher Parkway to Owensboro (1 hr) you can go to moonlight BBQ and then hit Whittakers Guns. I always drove to Whittakers for gun deals when I lived in BG. Back in the day there was J&M Gun Shop and Big Boys Toys, but they were pretty $$$$$$$ both are out of business.

Vette museum is really good. There is also a 7 foot picture of me there, I am standing behind the millionth Corvette, driver side bumper. ( I was an Intern there)

BG is a great city to raise kids and all, but I couldn't find much to do there, so I moved to Louisville.

There is the Green River Gun Club right outside of Bowling Green. I've never been there, by the web site info it looks kinda like a members only place
Maybe they'd allow a guest to shoot...I don't know...

Any one know if Koostra's Sporting Clays range is still going? Last info I had was:

290 Koostra Road
Bowling Green, KY 42101
(270) 781-9545

Uncle Lee's in Greenville has a lot of guns. It isn't far from Bowling Green. I beleive it is the largest sporting goods store in KY. It is worth checking out. They have a website with directions.

Uncle Lee's and Whittaker's are a great loop to make for firearms shopping.

You can get more info from www.whittakerguns.com the site does NOT do him justice. Best Prices I have seen on many items and he stocks tons of Magazines. He is over 2 hours away and I make it up there every few months. My last Trip I picked up a Mini 14 for $339 with pistol grip stock.

What's the name of the gun store in West Louiville? I bought a pristine 1950 Enfield No4 MkII from him for $135 about 10 or 11 years ago and he had a LOT of everything. My dad picked up a lever action in .357 that day. What a place...!!

Whittaker's. For those who don't know where it is, it's 2 hours away from the real Louisville.

Right! Thanks. He was always worth a drive up from Hopkinsville!
