It doesn't matter the time of year, I'm always on the lookout for stores that sell "huntin stuff" whenever I'm on the road traveling with the wife or alone. There's a small, privately-owned store in Meridian, MS along I-20 that's worth getting off the beaten path to visit. The place is literally packed with more guns and hunted-related inventory than you could ever imagine being in a store of such size. Just Google Sports Center Meridian MS and you'll find it. No website, just word of mouth and a little known FB page.

Believe it or not, the hunting sections of rural Walmarts can be small treasure chests sometimes. Good stuff on deep discounts.

What Texas Dan said, only about the gun store in Hattiesburg Mississippi thats almost the size of Carters Country Katy Frwy location in Houston, and another one in Lafayette Louisiana off General something Drive...and the biggest selection of new blue jeans I ever saw.

Great place, and not just for hunting stuff. They aren't cheap, but the variety is incredible.

If you are ever bird hunting in Arkansas, Mack's Prairie Wings in Stuttgart is worth a look.

I was amazed at the selection at Gibsons.


Wheelers here in Boerne has a good selection of Guns & Ammo, as does Mumme's in Hondo.


If your headed down south Los Cazadores is worth a stop just to see the mounts and Oasis Outback is probably the best all around store in the Southern half of the state.

In San Angelo go to Field and Streams Sporting Goods.
One of the best stocked in the state. Probably have 1500 guns on display and that many more in the back.
Always have any ammo you may need. And very friendly.

Rocky Mountain Discount Sports in Cody, Wyoming. Doesn't look like much on the outside and the inside structurally looks like a mid-late building from the 50's-60's but they have dang near everything you could be looking for. Great pistol & rifle selections. Some of the greatest Camo selections from all the big names and more inventory than big box stores (I.e. Cabelas & Bass Pro). I was very impressed.

Haven't been there in 20 years, my uncle, step dad, and myself went there any time we were in San Angelo.
