Are there any gun shops in the Vancouver area that you consider top-notch?

I just had a cancellation from one, and would like to fill the gap.

Thanks for any replies.

I've used Allison & Cary Gun Works, 17311 SE Stark, Portland, OR. (503) 256-5166. They have quite a shop and the personnel are knowledgable. I shoot left handed and had a new Browning over-under, they bent the stock so that it aligned better for a left handed shooter. They also have done some work on my Browning lever.

I've used The Powder Horn out in Forest Grove as well, although they're a bit out of the way.

2835 19th St.
Suite 45-70
(503) 357-4570

There's also Phoenix Armory in Oregon City, al;though I've never been in.

402 Beavercreek Rd.
(503)655-4086

Whatever you do, stay away from The Gun Room. Just my personal observation, but the guy is a jerk.

Thanks for the replies.

The shops mentioned are in Oregon, though. Aren't there any good shops in Vancouver, WA?

Nope.
Used to live there.
Go to Portland or further North in WA.

I had Allison and Cary fix a stripped scope mount hole on my rifles receiver. They were very knowledgeable and friendly with good, prompt service and a fair price. They are certified for warranty repair work for a number of manufacturers. I didn't pay a lot of attention to the "gunstore" part, but I would trust them with any 'smithing in the future.
