Traveling across pa passing near Pittsburgh and heading toward Philly. Along 76 for a good part of the trip.

Any gunstores worth the time to stop? Not into black rifles or military type arms.

Thanks

Shydas near Harrisburg is worth the little sidetrack. Used to have the best powder selection of any store I ever went into.

Use to, there shelves are bare now on powder, bullets, primers and ammo, guns are at a low time low too. Last time I was in I asked if they were going out of business.

Bedford - Cove Creek Outfitters and Juniata Trading Company

Waynesboro (little south of your route) Herold's Gun Shoppe

Newville (little north of your route) Shuman's Gun Shop - (had a surprisingly good powder supply last week)

Shyda's used to be a great store. Not so for about 15 years.

There used to be a little gun shop in Sugar Creek, PENN called T&L guns. But last time I was in that area it was an empty building. Had a fair amount of old cool rifles

There used to be an outfit in Pitcairn, just outside of Pittsburgh called Esman's. They had a store and a catalog operation. Don't know if they're still there

Several in the Lancaster/Lebanon area, Shyda’s is in Lebanon Pa, as others have said, it isn’t what it used to be.
Not far from Shyda’s is Richland Shooters Supply in Richland Pa. A short drive to Middle Creek Wildfowl Area is Darryl’s gun shop,it’s small but well stocked, In Ephrata Pa is Mussers outdoors and in Bowmansville there is Kerper’s gun shop, all are small family owned local gun shops, you never know what you might find on the used rack plus all the stores are a short drive off of PA turnpike rte76. If you’re into custom guns, Mark Bansner’s shop is in Adamstown also a short distance from rte76. These are the shops that I visit on a regular basis.

I haven't been to Trop's in Elizabethtown recently but it's an easy hop south on 283 from the Harrisburg East (#247) exit. If you're staying in Somerset, Hoovers and S & S near Rockwood would be worth a trip. I don't think I'd specifically stop for either of them if I was just traveling thru but if you're in the Somerset area...

If you're going to Grice's, then don't miss Bob's Army Navy. Just a couple of blocks away.

I used to think we had a coyote problem in Pa. Now I think we have a Wolf problem...

If you get to Philly you might want to check out Tanner's in Jamison, PA.

If you hit Cove creek in Bedford and stay on 30 east to
Juniata Trade, stop in Everett at the True Value. Their stock is a bit short,
but it's a nice little store along the way. Prices are usually decent. (Best in area)

This will make a nice break from the Turnpike.
Get off the Bedford exit. Hit the 3 shops along 30,
Get back on the Turnpike 20 miles east in Breezewood.

When you coming through?

In Pittsburgh, you can't beat Accuflite Arms. That is if your looking for a Custom made Sako Rifle that'll shoot second to none!

I agree with all three. But I live a few minutes from Shydas and can tell you they are picked clean right now

Grices has been mentioned. Tanners in Jamison (NW of Philly) is worth a stop.
