Do a store locator search on their website for WV and it will show their store in Barboursville WV, call their number and they will ship it to a D.I.C.K.'s near you. That's what they told me anyway.

Personally I am biased towards Martin...I have been shooting them since the beginning for me....I have been shooting the Cheetah for the last couple of years and I love it. If you prefere something a little longer, it's brother the Bengal is just as nice...
