Got back on line tonight..thanks for the info on some places to drool over the guns in Columbia. I check prices a lot on line vs what I see I like in the stores, and if they are close enough I go with the store. I like to stop in at Nichols Store off I 77 south of Rock Hill..and bought a good 22 mag. Mossberg bolt action rifle for varmints last year. ATP in Summerville SC is one I also like to shoot and shop, got my Gaucho 45 there.
when were you in Vietnam? I was in Nov 68-Nov 69.
I usually visit Palmetto State Armory or Academy Sports in Columbia. Compared to online pricing, most local gun stores are higher. So I look in the stores and shop online. Worked so far, lol! Good luck and stay in touch.
