Pa Gun Stores

Anybody know any great gun stores in eastern PA?

Would like to see used as well as new.

Gun Toters in Eynon (near Scranton) is a pretty good store. I've bought several guns from Mike. He's also a LEO in the area. They have a pretty good selection, both new and used. I think he's in the book, I'll post his number or address when I find his card.

Not quite sure of my Pa geography, but Trope's in Mt. Joy always seemed to be pretty good.

Kid in a candy store! Yes, that's what I'm after!

Great! Looking to do some reloading.

Eynon's close by.

There supposed to be a great place in Clearfield, but that's a bit far ranging.

BTW: I know D&R is in Nanticoke, but I've never been to their store. Does anybody know if they sell "over the counter" as well as mail order?

The place in Clearfield is Grice Gun Shop. Very nice selection. I've heard them called the largest gun shop in PA, but don't know if that's a fact or a piece of marketing hype.

Another vote here for Trope's in Mt Joy, they are also just a few mins from my club.. May also wanna chack out Enk's Gun Barn in Reinholds or Trout Run Sports in Ephrata. Only Stay away from Trout Run if you're looking to trade because they are tight assed as hell in that department.

Shyda's, Enck's, and Kerper's in Bowmansville. There was talk of the first east coast Cabella's up in northern Berks awhile back, but I suspect that deal's been quite destroyed by now. Seems that one of our illustrious representatives was concerned about "losing all that valuable farmland" and putting local dealers out of business.

She would, however, "jump for joy" if they decided to open a Cabella's in an abandoned industrial building in beautiful downtown Reading. :barf:
