brewman555, thanks, I know about Gander, Bass Pro and Green Top (my favorite). Problem is, they are 90 min rides from me and with gas prices these days, it makes for a pricy trip. Why there is nothing in NOVA (I don't count Dick's) is beyond me.

You might already know about them, but National Pawnbrokers in Arlington, Dicks in Fairfax, and Guns & Ammo Warehouse in Manassas all have guns and are worth checking out.

There aren`t many places that sell guns in NOVA because NOVA is close to DC.......DC = LIBERALS ........ Liberals = ANTI - GUN ....... Anti - gun = no guns in NOVA ........

I have to disagree with your argument here. The NRA is headquartered in Fairfax and has an indoor range. Blue Ridge Arsenal is in Chantilly and also has an indoor range. The Clark Bros Gun shop in Warrenton has an outdoor range. There are several outdoor clubs/ranges around to shoot at. The Nations Gun Show happens three times a year about 5 miles from Dulles Airport. There are numerous big box stores, pawn shops, and gun shops around the area that have firearms. You can still get your CHP like you can anywhere else in VA. True it's a big city environment, but your logic doesn't hold up for VA. If you change that to MD or DC you're spot on.

Maybe walmart had a good deal on something he wanted?

I lived up there for a few years and never felt like there was a shortage of places to buy guns or to shoot for that matter, just takes a while to find the places. I'm sure glad I don't live there any more though.

The Walmarts in Rochester NY area stopped selling rifle and shotguns years ago! It's too bad, I used to think Walmart was for hunters and gun ownership. Not anymore!!!

Did not realize this thread was still going on.

Just to clarify why I originally posted. I am not a huge fan of Walmart but will go there to stock up on the basics. I often hear of the close-out sales at the end of the season at Walmart, where bullets, powder and other supplies are steeply discounted. Those stores that do not sell firearms usually have very little, if any, of the typical hunting supplies. Thatís why I wanted to know what stores in VA (Iím in Clifton Fairfax county), relatively close to the beltway, still sold guns. Looks like Warrenton has the closest, and will be worth a trip in season.

Regarding my comment on the lack of stores in northern Virginia, I guess I should have been more specific to say Fairfax County, close to DC. For hunters, there is virtually nothing. Clarkís Bros is almost an hour away, so is Loudon Guns. Gander Mountain and Bass Pro are also too far for a quick drive. All the local gun shops mainly cater to the tactical crowd. That basically leaves Dicksís, which IMO is barely a step above Walmart. When I moved here five years ago, I was pretty surprised that there were no independent hunting (or fishing) shops in the immediate area.

I believe Dawson's Gun Shop on Rt 1 just below Woodbridge is still there. Their info,

Dawson's Small Arms of the World
14510 Jefferson Davis Hwy
Woodbridge, VA 22191
703-490-3308

They have a decent selection of items ranging from reloading to archery to tatical to clothing. I don't think you will find end of the year clearances in there though.
