engineermike, I lived in Clinton in the late 60's and into the early 80's. Used to love to steal a day off and my daughter and I would go to OKC and go to the wonderful gun shops there. Southwest Shooters was great. I followed them to about four locations. Don't know if they are still there. The old guy that invented all the wildcat cartridges in the 50's (Art something) had a great shop on Reno, just south of downtown, before urban renewal took all that area out.
And Clinton had Shamburgs, a great shop that supplied TG&Y's guns, ammo, reloading, etc. for all of Oklahoma.
