    I just bought a gun at a bar.......

    Where is the oddest place that you have ever seen a gun shop?

    I just bought a clean Stevens Marksman single shot .22LR from a gun shop/range that is attached to a bar and restaurant while on vacation in Florida.
    (The bar/restaurant is called the "Double Tapp"!!!)

    In my home town, there has been ,for many years,pharmacist who sells firearms in his drug store.

    Best,
    Charles

    Bought one at Church. And used to be common for farm supply stores to carry them as trades, etc.

    Before the GCA 1968 it was not uncommon for most hobby shops, camera shops, hardware stores, etc., including Playworld to sell firearms.

    Bought a Ruger Single Six from a friend in the high school parking lot in the mid-60s.
    Don't think that would be acceptable today.

    I once bought a Garand at a Woolworths. It cost a bit more than ten cents, though.

    Years ago I was on a crew that was camping in the woods behind Mount Hood. Everyone had generators to power their rv. One of the guys went two hours of tugging on the rope and said he would give anyone a single barrel shotgun that can get his generator running. I told him what was wrong and he got it running right away. Next day he came over and gave me a 12ga shotgun for helping him. I tried to give it back but he said a deal was a deal.

    Shotgun was real light weight single shot that kicked like heck. I think after shooting it he was looking for a way to get rid of it without his wife getting mad. I sold it for $50

    There once was a gun shop and an ice cream parlor in the same location in downtown Boise, Idaho. I forget the name, but saw it in my first trip there about 1989. I believe the gun shop relocated a couple years later.

    Let me think, Cracker Barrel parking lot, church, hardware store parking lot, high school ( in the early 70s), and some in some really strange places.
