    I'm in Omaha for a couple of days and thought it might be nice to check out the local gun shops. Any recommendations?

    Guns Unlimited and The Bullet Hole are great places to go. Check the Yellow pages for addresses.

    Sol's pawn shops once and a great while have a good deal or two. Scheel's will be the best choice. Guns Unlimited has a pretty good selection but in my opinion the sales staff is suspect.

    good luck

    Great, but I'm leaving Omaha Friday, not in a few months.

    Thanks for the other suggestions, though. I'll check out Scheel's and maybe Sol's.

    May not be helpful, but...

    there are plenty of second hand bookstores near the riverfront. I found a lot of good books there including some used copies of Gun Digest cheap.

    GU--selection is good----prices are high---staff is a bunch of jerks---more aptly described by a word starting with "A".

    Scheel's is good

    Sol's is good---but only go the the downtown store----the various offshoot locations have a limited selection.

    There is also a Scheel's in Lincoln and a pretty decent shop in Fremont.

    If you are looking for a quick run out of town, head up I-29 to Missouri Valley, IA (about 20mins up the road from Downtown Omaha). Double Barrel Gun Shop is on a corner right in middle of town on the main road (422 E. Erie St). A small shop but pretty well stocked, and Chris and Jody love to chat about anything gun related.

    Well, I ended up with less free time than I'd hoped, but I did make it to Sol's downtown. Lots of milsurps, to be sure.

    Maybe next time I'm in town I can check out a couple of other stores, though based on the comments here, I'll skip Guns Unlimited.

    By the way, I did get to Rosenblatt Stadium to watch the Royals come from behind to win over the Iowa Cubs, 7-6, on July 3rd. And the fireworks after the game were spectacular!

    Omaha's a great little city. I hope I can get back there soon.
