Seems to me that both Utah and Wyoming have this sort of thread, why not Montana?

Looks like enough to go to the BLM range one of these weekends...

I'm surprised at the amount of single & double digit posters on the MT forums. Personally it took a while for me to find the Montana side of things because I was looking for "M" for Montana under the hometown forums so I stopped before the "R" for Rocky Mountain Forums....

Welcome all.

Take care.

Hey Billings residents,

I live in Powell, WY, about 85 miles south of Billings and I wanted to ask where a good gun store is; the more AR-15 related the better, and one that sell HK USPs is a plus tooThanks!
Link Posted: 11/4/2005 5:28:56 PM EDT
Shiptons Big R is about your only option in Billings. Isn't there a Lintons Big R in Powell?

Shiptons is good, however they only deal in new firearms. They have a store on the West end which would be more convenient for you and they can check and transfer firearms from their downtown store if something you want is in stock @ the DT store and out of stock at the West end store...

West End: 652-9118. (2600 Gabel Road)
Downtown: 252-0503. (216 N. 14th)

Butt's Gun Sales in the heights can be a pretty good spot but it's "iffy". While he deals in new & used some of his prices can be really good, and others are rediculous. For instance when he has them, a new Bushmaster would probably run around ~$900. But he's got an over stock of used "preban" ARs which have been sitting on his shelf for years. He's got an old SGW "stopsign" lower w/ a 16" Bushmaster CAR15 11.5 + 5" upper on it for $1400. That might be fine in a ban state, but when a new AR w/ all the goodies goes for ~$900 you'd think he would want to move stuff. Instead he's got Colt SP1 uppers mated w/ new production A2 lowers for just under $900. On top of that, he's got Colt Sporters and a green label 20" A2 1/9. Prices on these range from 1200-$2000. His # is 252-8442 and he's located clear up in the heights past wal-mart.

Sagebrush Trading Post on 1st Ave North. (Close to the METRA) Deals in new & used. His prices are usually pretty fair but at the moment his selection is nil on ARs. IIRC right now all he has is a Rock River Arms post ban neutered 16" carbine @ $775. Cash-wise he usually seems to have some room to work. His number is 252-2778. Last time he had a Bushmaster M4 in he was asking somewhere around $920 for it.

For the HKs, might try Shiptons and Scheels as I believe they both carry them and they're close together on the West end. Shceels is in Rimrock Mall off of 24th Street West basically Due North of Shiptons. Scheels phone number is 656-9220. My guess is if either store has an HK that you'd be interested in, it'll be new and @ retail.

Daddy O's Pawn is fine if you want new and enojy a selection- but I'm unimpressed w/ retail prices there...

I think there may be a gun show in Billings coming up in December as well but I'm not certain. I'll probably post here when I know the date.

HTH.

Thanks much, guys!

The Big R in Powell isnt too great; they dont carry anything AR related (or HK for that matter), although they do keep 1000 round cases of Wolf stocked for me most of the timehere
And definetly post info on the gunshow if you get the chance, I-M-A-WMD, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks again and happy shooting!

Hey...assholes...LAY OFF BUTTE!!! Thats where I live and I wouldn't trade it for anything!

I go to school in Bozeman thouhg for most of the year but I make the occasional trip back.

Sure Butte has the mines and that huge toxic pit of water...but to be honest...its better than the meth-riden Billings area or the super-liberal Missoula area and GF...jeez...who would want to live there? Butte is the heart of Montana and we can dominate you all!

Not to mention we have the 3rd/4th of July, St. Patty's Day, and Evel Dayz! Beat any one of those!

Cheers my fellow Montanians.

No offer on this end. Butte is the heart of Montana and we can dominate you all! In what, hockey? What is this "hockey" of which you're avatar mentions? Is that the game where you combine ice skating, playing w/ a puck, (Which, I've always known to be used in urinals to control the smell) and beating the sh*t out of someone? I hear some people just call that "Thursday".

Not to mention we have the 3rd/4th of July, St. Patty's Day, and Evel Dayz! Well, aside from Evel Dayz, which I don't know WTH you're talking about... It's not like the others were invented there. Just goes to show that with as much booze coursing through Butte- the holidays are bound to be better than most! Beat any one of those!

Cheers my fellow Montanians.

Nice of you to stand up and be counted Rem700PSS.
