    The Sport Spot on rt 611 in Plumsteadville, Upper Bucks. In about 1974 they had a grand opening special of a Rem M700 BDL in .270 only, not the 760 '06 relatives had, for $127.00. I still have it today. Bought all my reloading stuff from them. And a lot of ammo. They always had the best prices around.

    Mundy's in Collingdale. Now it's Suburban Armory.
    Sticks and stones will break my bones but hollow points expand on impact.

    I can’t believe there was a gun store there.

    I am trying to think of the location of a range below Baltimore Avenue on a street in the 50’s. I remember going there for an H & K day and shooting a full auto H & K

    I was way too young for guns. But I remember my parents taking me to the Bazzar. For me it was model trains at the time. Brought back some memories.

    I grew up one block over from the Llanerch gun shop. I remember me and one of my close friends stopping in there often to check out the guns in the early 80ís on our way to fish in the quarry across the street.

    There was a shop in Penndel right off of Business Rt 1 that operated out of a house where I bought and sold several pistols, always friendly and fair prices. They must have closed about 15 years ago or more.
