Should have mentioned this before

I went hunting with my Dad earlier this year. We went to Salt Fork for the early muzzleloader season. Monday morning, my Dad took a spill down a hill and buggered up my finely crafted front sight. It was a masterpiece made of JB Weld and a colored dot so his eyes could see it.

Anyhow, we were now in need of a new sight. Went to the campsite office where there seemed to be a different desk clerk every day and all of them were extremely pleasant and helpful. They flipped through their rolodex of "stuff our campers might need" and found County Coin and Collectables in Caimbridge. We made the phone call, they had a fiber-optic front sight in stock and quoted me $19 for it. Said we'd be right there. Went in and WOW! They had a HUGE selection of blackpowder and archery stuff. Good prices and they installed the front sight on the rifle while we waited. At no extra charge.

If you find yourself hunting Salt Fork and need anything muzzleloader related, I can firmly recommend County Coin and Collectables. Had us back in the field (after a sight in) within two hours, counting drive time of about twenty minutes each way.

There's also a gunshop right next door that they recommend for cartridge stuff, so they may be a good place to keep in mind for those of you hunting Salt Fork later this year and find yourself in an unfortunate bind.

I live close to Cambridge and have purchased guns at County Coins in the past. Good guys to deal with. I picked up the Lee Challenger Kit I ordered from Hilltop Outdoor Supplies, (the gun shop next door) earlier this week. Cheaper than Midway too. It only opened recently, but they have a growing selection. They have a good stock of reloading stuff too.

How's your dad doing?
