• Rural King

    From Dumas Walker@VERT/CAPCITY2 to JIMMY ANDERSON on Sun May 17 18:15:00 2020
    I've heard of Rural King, but we don't have any around here. I think the closest we get is Murdoch's. The one here in sell firearms, they're right next door to Sportsmans' Warehouse so that's understandable, but the one in Laramie does.

    We really like the atmosphere and the store as a whole! They have good,
    GLASS bottle root beer, good peanut butter filled pretzel bites for
    snacks - LOL - and of course a good selection of guns, ammo and other accesories.

    "They" is Rural King, right? We don't have one here, but I think the next
    town over does.

    Rural King is similar to Tractor Supply Co or the chain formerly known as
    Farm and Fleet. At first, they didn't sell firearms, then a few years after w e got a local store they added guns and ammo to their sporting goods. Funny thing is on a shooting forum I frequent, there was a member posting in the state specific forum areas that he was a marketing guy for a major farm store chain, and wanted feedback on which brands to shop for, and wanted to know if customers would be interested in buying ammunition by the case or crate load (1000 rounds or more.) After RK brought in firearms, it was pretty clear who he worked for.

    My local RK has some really firendly and helpful employees. Most look like they are happy to work there. The guys behind the gun counter are
    knowledgable about what's in stock and what other shops in the area are
    selling similar guns and ammo for.

    I stopped by the store recently, and they had placed barriers by the gun counter to limit how many people were in that area at one time. Looks like they have more guns in than normal, but my guess is the distrubutors are selling them at a discount to RK since the smaller mom/ pop shops may not be open to full capacity.

    Yes - Rural King. Just about an hour or so from home, so makes for a
    good day trip. :-)

    I think that had to do with social distancing...

    I don't know... I bet they just have a warehouse full somewhere where
    they restock the stores as things sell...

    Farm and Fleet sold guns, then they dissolved into TSC's and Family and
    Farms. Family and Farms stock just a few, like old surplus Mosin Nagants, Ruger 10/22's or Henry rifles. Maybe a Savage or Remington budget model or two.

    RK sells certian brands regularly. Daniel Defense, Del-Ton, and Springfield A rmory are not as common as Henry, Remington, Ruger, Savage, or S&W

    I probably have one about 20-30 minutes from here. Once things get more
    back towards normal (or once I get more comfortable with the new normal!),
    it sounds like I need to pay them a visit!

    Yes, do, and let me know what you think!

    We are in Indy for a few days visiting my son/DIL/grand son. We stopped in Bloomington on the way in and they didn't have a limit on their ammo! Maybe things ARE getting back to normal!

    It was TUL ammo - 50 rounds for 7.99 - I know it's not brass, but I don't reload and my wife's SUB 2000 seems to eat those just fine!!!
