I will start with Stock and Barrel. They were on 5th Avenue in Bayshore. Remember going there as a teenager to order a part for my Ruger 10/22. Anyone remember this place and when they went out of business?

Village Sport Center, Seaford. Went out in the '80's

Voehringer's, Merrick Rd and Bayview Ave, Wantagh. Formerly of Myrtle Ave in Brooklyn. Founded 1880, closed in the '70's
A sporting goods store where you could buy a worm, the tackle, the rod, the boat and motor and the shell, the shotgun, the clothing, the license, the duck boat, etc.

How about Burns Bros who moved to Vets Hwy just south of the LIE.

You also had Executive Gun Shop in Smithtown who moved to the Medford store on 112 which is now Bensons.

Tee-Dee was right around the corner also.

Anyone remember "Island Guns" on Rte 110? North of the Northern State, South of Walt Whitman? My wife and I took our Hunters Safety course's there back in the early 80's.

Or ... "On Target" on Jericho Tpke in New Hyde Park? I brought my first Bolt action rifle, a Ruger 77 in .30-06 from Neil.

Does anyone remember a gun store around Mid Island Plaza, Hicksville in the late fifties early sixties. It had an indoor 50' range in the basement.
A guy named Burt owned the place.

I remember a Gemini Arms in Hicksville. The guy re-blued a Remington 700 for me and did a real crappy job on it. He blued the polished bolt as well. When I complained, he polished and jeweled the bolt and then tried to charge me extra.

Nimrod was Peter Brook, not Brock
Colonial started on Gardiners Ave, where the range is. THEN he moved to East Meadow.
On Target has had two stores, the first was at the corner of New Hyde Park road, then he opened later at the store further West.
There was also an Edelmans on Jericho Tpk in New Hyde Park, where the Bob Howards is now. Opened and closed around 1980.
So far no one mentioned Collectors on Jericho Tpk, although he is not gone that long.
