After many months of work, this new higher-end gunshop in Conifer is finally open. I was up there today to meet a friend for lunch and get the final tour. A very nice mix of nicer 50s and 60s classics alongside many newer options. They have a good assortment of rifles, shotguns and handguns. Clearly, a significant effort was made to achieve an attractive environment and they have succeeded in spades. The doubles seemed to be mostly classic American, but nothing would surprise me there. They even have an assortment of classic 50s and 60s sub-gauge pump-guns (not something one sees much anymore) including a very early Remington 870 in 16 that weighed not much more than 6lbs. Well worth the trip. There were decent restaurant options available up there as well, with no need to sit outside. Made for an entertaining afternoon.

Sounds like a nice place to visit, Lloyd. Bet they didn't have a Westernfield/Browning Model 30. wink

They sure didn't Stan. Can't be too-many of those floating around as yours is the only one I've ever encountered. It was fun to see classic American pump-guns displayed in a more "respectful" setting (for lack of a better description), certainly a first for me. A very nice Model 97 in 16-gauge was priced well over four figures. The times... they are a changing.

I'm kinda excited about soon paying a visit to a gun store I've been wanting to go to for years ............Mid South Guns, in Wagram, NC. Gonna be a looong day trip.

Been saving my pennies ........

Stan are you looking for a 12, 16 or 20 gauge version of the Browning designed pump gun to complete your set? I have my set. Looked a long time for a solid example of each, in nice condition. I like how they work but wold pick a Remington model 31 in 20 gauge or a Winchester model 12 in 20 or 28 gauge as a dove gun.

Mid South should be fun Stan. Rather incredible diversity of guns there. Maybe not as pristine as what I was looking at today but most were certainly serviceable.

Not really looking for anything in particular, Jon. I'd love to have an Iver Johnson Skeeter .410 with long barrels, maybe a higher condition Iver Johnson Special Trap than the two I have, the right 28" barreled M42, with more than skeet choke, and long barreled. Graded Philly Foxes are always of interest. I'm mostly going to be looking for deals, as always.

A friend and I are planning to drive up to Jim Kelly's in Darlington and drop off a couple guns for him to sort out, then run on up to Wagram for a couple hours. I've never been in a gunshop that had as many vintage guns as I've heard they have. So many of what I've bought in the last 15 years have been bought sight unseen (with an inspection period, of course), that it will be nice to be able to actually look at something, in hand, to evaluate it.

Sounds like a good place to look for those "out of the mainstream" guns and accoutrements.

Really glad to see Brian got his shop open, he's put a lot of effort into both planning & execution for it. I wish him the best & need to get up there once things calm down some. I would rather drive the 45 minutes to get to Conifer rather than the ten minutes to go to the next best shop in downtown Denver.

Our old buddy Dave is working for Brian part time, when do you start as well?

I suspect that Brian's shop would be a fun place to work. The commute would kill me though, possibly literally. US 285 up through Turkey Creek Canyon is probably better than it used to be but....it's still a handful.
