    I am going to be in Boise Friday and Saturday for a wedding and need to kill some time Friday afternoon. What is your favorite gun store? I want to check a couple out while I am there. Thanks in advance!

    Impact Guns is a great place to go, very friendly and helpful, they have an indoor range also. If you are looking for a great selection of in-stock handguns and rifles, Cabelas would be your best bet.

    Impact is good like tatersalad said. Cliff's is also one I've been to a number of times.

    Impact Guns is on Executive, East of Cloverdale. Cliff's Guns Safes & Reloading is on Five Mile, South of Emerald. They are both close to each other so you can hit them one right after the other.

    Right, I have heard Impact and Cliff's are both very good places. I don't suggest you even bother with Cabelas, I have yet to see a single person who actually works behind the gun counter know a single thing about guns.

    Picture this:


    Are these bullets boat-tail? "Boat...tail...?"

    Is this case tumbler any good? "Whats a case tumbler?"

    Do you have any shot timers? "Why would you need to time a shot?"

    Are these plated bullets as good as jacketed? "I didn't know there was a difference."






    Save your time and money, go to Sportsmans Warehouse, it is right across from the Meridian Walmart.

    Been to the chain stores, but I was curious if there were any cool local stores there. Thanks for the info. I will have to check them out tomorrow.

    Sounds like today you are in town. Boise Gun Company down in Garden City.

    Not really clean like Impact or or a chain store, but they have A LOT of guns.

    Dang, missed that last post before I went. I only made it to Impact Guns, and was impressed I wish I had more time so I could check out the indoor range. They have a Wilson Combat 1911 to rent and I would have liked to shoot it. Employees were great and they were OCing in the store. I thought that was cool.

    On a side note... the reason I went to Boise in the first place was for a wedding on my Wife's side of the family. I was going to OC, but because of some circumstances, my wife asked that I not do it so I didn't draw attention away from the bride and groom. I grudgingly agreed... We get to the park in Idaho City. Get out of car. Groom and groomsmen were OCing. Two had colt 1911s and one had a H&K USP 9mm. I immediately booked it back to my car and put mine on. Later noticed groom's dad OCing a 1911 also. Best wedding I've been to in a while.
