    Lion Country is actually several miles west of Port Matilda on old 220 heading for Tyrone. Once you get over that way there are a bunch of stores from Tyrone and down into Altoona/Duncansville area.

    Off the top of my head: Pioneer Gund shop at the Juniata railroad shops.
    East Coast Gun Supply, Allegainy Traders and Weaver's(?) in Duncansville. Plus some of the hardware stores in the Tyrone and Altoona area used to carry guns and ammo.

    Just off route 80 at Lamar is Miller's. Over here in Lewistown/ Burnham we have Dan Peirce Outdoor shop, Lewistown Hunting & Fishing in Burnham and D&R Firearms south of Belleville on 655.

    I'm the guy in Lemont but I don't have a store, I'm a gunsmith that does transfers ans special orders for people (plus a few other things you'll see if you peruse the forum here).

    I would suggest Belding and Mull (on the way to Clearfield) Bob's in Clearfield, Lion Cointry Supply (on the way to Tyrone). I'm not particularily enamored with Dicks or Grices. You can also go north to Millers in Mill Hall.

    If you follow Grice's sale ads closely, you can sometimes get really great deals. Although on average, Bob's will have better prices on most items and a fairly large selection of its own rights.

    A little closer to home than either Philipsburg and Clearfield, there are a few LGS along RT 45 in Penn's Valley. The bigger ones are the Noll's Gun Shop in Spring Mills and Cox's Gun Shop in Millheim. Neither's prices are as good as those of Bob's or Belding and Mull. But both might be worth a visit nevertheless. Noll's has a quite diverse selection of calibers seldom found in a brick-and-mortar store (.307 Winchester or .223 WSSM anyone?), while Cox's carries (at least before this past month) a large stock of mil. surplus ammo in common calibers at very reasonable prices.

    I was at Grice's this past Saturday. It was insanely busy. I have had some bad service there but this time it was very good. I stopped at the counter where they deal with reloading items as well as the handgun counter. I was taken care of very well and I will say the prices on small pistol primers was less than any other place I have looked.

    I do like Belding and Mull but there inventory cannot compete with Grice's.

    I stopped by Bob's Army Navy looking for powder. The person who waited on me had no clue what he was talking about and the price for Hogdon Titegroup was $30 higher, for 8 lbs, than other places.

    They focus on shotguns (it's primarily a hunting pooch supply and bird hunting outfit) but have about 20 or so pistols and a small selection of lever/ bolt/ pump guns. They have a lot of super awesome but pricey O/U and SxS i like to drool over from time to time. Super nice guys, IMO.....
