Old Pittsburgh gun shops
Does anyone on here remember the name of the gun shop that was in Pittsburgh's strip district,off Smallman St.,maybe 35-40 years ago? I bought a few guns there,and all my re-loading supplies. I was trying to remember the name,and it has been bugging me for days!

Was it Firearms Unlimited? They were in East Liberty though...
or maybe The Hunt Armory?

How about Antique Gun Parts? That was in Regent Square, I bought my Thompson Center Flintlock there in the 80`s...

I was thinking about that place a couple weeks ago and I can't remember their name. Pretty sure it was on 35th St in the strip.

Nope it wasn't Firearms Unlimited in East Liberty. I bought some guns there too. There was also a Firearms Unlimited/Gunners Den located in Monroeville Mall years ago. I also remember Antique Gun Parts in Regent Square,and Esman's in Pitcairn was also a good gunshop back then. Bumble Bea ,I believe you are right,it was on 35th st.
I have an envelope with the sales receipts from all my guns somewhere in my house. I gotta look for it before this drives me I bought my first deer rifle there.

what about the two gun shops in North Hills, there was one near Rico's on Evergreen..that was back in 90 or so. then there was the one by the library on 19, 9012 Old Perry Hwy to be exact. HiTec Handguns lives there now, and when the old shop went out of biz i bought 4 10rd magazines for a marlin 25mn for 5 bucks each
