Gun shop
« on: April 21, 2018, 06:49:28 AM »
I don't get to many gun shops in my area as I'm in San Antonio often. Anyone here familiar with the gun shop on the main street going into Shiner? Prices, selection?

If you're here in SA and you haven't been by there already, I'd recommend checking out Adelbridge & Co. Firearms on the North side. They have pretty good prices on their used firearms and their selection has quadrupled since they first opened; although AR's and concealed carry handguns are probably their bread and butter, they also have firearms of collector value from time to time (M-1 Garands, C&R revolvers, etc.), and occasionally some zanier stuff (PS-90's, Tavors, Thompson SMG rifle repro's, guns with 20-point antlers on them so to speak, etc.).

The staff seems friendlier in my opinion than the guys at Nagel's and while not as large or with as much stuff, their place is undoubtedly better organized than Nagel's as well.

Well considering Nagels has been in the same location and building for what 70 plus yrs. I overlook the cluttered aspect.

And you wont likely find a larger selection of “different” guns old and new.

Knowledge there is excellent in my opinion. They sometimes are a tad higher on $$ however.

Durys guns is another good one for large selection. Busy so wait times can be long as well.

Sorry cant help you on the other.

shiner1911,

I cannot believe that NOBODY has an opinion.
(CHUCKLE)

My opinion on Shiner is that the local beer "flows freely" there & "It ain't bad" either.

My last encounter with beer was in 1974, and included a whole extra large mushroom pizza. 
Ever since I’ve hated beer and mushroom pizzas.

TXAZ,

PITY about the pizza. = I admit to LOVING pizza with LOTS of gooey cheese, onions &  Italian sausage.
(My Darla is 100% Sicilian & makes GREAT pizza in  that style.)

Hey, My wife is Sicilian also. It's hard to get pizza and stromboli that reaches her standard so she makes her own for us.
And we've never been to Shiner. So, my opinion is, and it's probably the only thing I can say this about, I have no opinion to offer. :)

Texas@last,

Not only is Darla a pure-blood Sicilian through & through (Her parents FLED Palermo to escape the fury of the SS & Gestapo during the Hitler TERROR there.)  but her spaghetti sauce & lasagna are WONDERFUL, as well as is her homemade pizza. = She's completely spoiled me for eating at American "Italian" cafes.

I know what you mean, It's hard to find a restaurant that we like because the food is so blah. All good Sicilian cooks have two spaghetti sauces; a two hour sauce and a two day sauce. We have six kids and when they were at home she did the two hour sauce just because we were working, it was easier, and the kids didn't care. But for special dinners and holidays, we would smell the process for two days.

My wife's family didn't come over to flee anything I don't think. But her grandfather and his four brothers all came over together. They were vineyard "chemists" if you know what I mean.  They moved to Chicago to help grow the family business.  :auto: :th_smiley-stargate014:

Texas@last,

Fyi, Darla has a 30 MINUTE "scratch" sauce with tomatoes, meat, garlic, red pepper, etc. that's GREAT when she's in a hurry and/or my blood sugar has taken a NOSEDIVE.

Texas@last,

MUCH better than nothing when my blood sugar falls suddenly & I need to EAT & really soon.
(I have the opposite from diabetes. = UNSTABLE blood sugar, low body temperature & chronically low blood pressure from birth.)

Darla has learned to STOP whatever we are doing & feed me if I say, "Sweetie I need to eat."
