I sold a lot of guns for Boscov's back in early 82/83.... I think by 90 they were out of the Sporting Goods and Hardware/tool business.

Bought my bolt .22 at old reliable AF Boyers in slatington in early May. Covid panic was quieting down, but before the riots. They have a mail in preorder system That was pretty painless.

Anyone ever been to Johnson’s in Croydon? Auto parts AND guns, my kind of store 🤣 one stop shopping
The old Johnson's Hardware is closed. They moved across State Rd and opened a gun shop. The old building is now a Mexican Restaurant.

BTW I did like the old shop. There was a lot of "atmosphere" that is lacking in the new place.

never been in Johnsons Hardware, but remember Joe the Motorist`s Friend. Dad use to buy his hunting license there until they ticked him off while try to buy his license. Never went back in. That store was just outside Lancaster City.

I was coming back home from a tuna fishing trip in Ocean City,MD and went into Cabelas in Christiana ,De. There were no shotguns on their side wall..SOLD OUT. A long line to buy the few guns on their racks. Ammo shelves were near bare with no 9MM,357,38's SOLD OUT....Stunning in "Joes" back yard.

A couple years back I bought my 1903 off Gunbroker from the Sporting Goods Division of Jim Flynn's Truck Repair in Glen Gardner NJ.
It's a guy who does heavy truck repair and has a gun store, too.

I think the only way that could be better (beyond being outside NJ) would be to have a barbeque joint attached.

if there were a bbq joint attached to it, I may actually have reason enough to go to the PRNJ. Shut up and take my money lol

side note (don’t want to start a new thread): anyone know what a block shoot is? Local club is doing a 12ga only one on Sunday for 70/30 pot and meat trays and I’d like to go.

I avoid cities like the plague and with all these beatings going on in the cities I wouldn't step foot in one without my pistol. Can't blame people for wanting to protect themselves, but it does make it hard to find guns and ammo right now.

Block shoots are typically shotguns shooting at a card with an X on it. Closest BB to the center wins and advances. They are shot at a fixed range and most clubs supply the ammo Not sure how many rounds before they start awarding "prizes".... usually won by a couple old timers shooting what appears to be a regular old shotgun,,,, BUT isn't LOL.

Guy I used to work with started shooting them.... I think in his 3rd year one of the old guys sold him a barrel and he could compete finally with the old boys
