Right down the road from me...

Gun Barrel City, Texas

http://www.gunbarrelcity.org/

http://www.gunbarrelcity.org/mainpic.jpg

Come on down! We're located just 54.4 miles from the center of downtown Dallas - and we are the bustling commercial center of Cedar Creek Lake. Our city is growing , as are the other communities around us that make up the tri-county "Lakeplex." And when it comes to shopping and services, Gun Barrel City is where business gets done.

So, don't let our official numbers (5,145 people) fool you . Main Street in Gun Barrel City sees a normal winter traffic flow of more than 18,000 cars per day. This number increases dramatically in the spring, summer and fall when our "weekender" and visitor population bring thousands more into the area to enjoy the lake and our restaurants , shopping and local entertainment...

Isn't that where Homer Simpson lives? Their mayor sounds an awful lot like a Kennedy, anyway.

No cities I know of, but around here we have a Shotgun St, a Carbine St, and my personal favorite, which has NOTHING to do with guns, ta da! Superchicken Dr. Seriously.

There's a Gunpowder Falls State Park in Maryland, suprisingly enough.
I look like this whenever I pass by the sign on I95 -> :D

Well, there's the Powder River in Wyoming and Montana.

Also, the Cache La Poudre river in Colorado, which translated means something like "hide (or store) the powder"

Oh yeah, and then there's Browning, MT :)
(edit: sorry, Mal already said that one)

BTW, there's a military BAR developed by John Moses and a civilian BAR rifle. However, there are many BARs in many cities, towns, villages throughout this great land of ours.:cool:

It's not much of a town anymore but last time I drove through Arizona, I took a picture of the exit sign for "Two Guns" Arizona off of what used to be route 66. Now thats a good name for a town.

In Denison, TX, there is a street named "Gun Club Road", which is odd, considering there's not a Gun Club on the road, as far as I know.
