    Gun Shops With Old Guns in Central Indiana?

    I enjoy shopping for older firearms that have an Old West flavor. What shops in the Indy area routinely carry such items? I know Badger Creek Firearms in Moorseville does and the Outpost in Brazil does. Any others? Four Guns in Lafayette has from time to time but that's a long drive.

    500 Guns in Indy has one of the most eclectic selections in the area. You'd like that place.

    Yeah, 500 Guns is the only one I know to suggest.

    Are there others? Probably. But I haven't found any.

    Another +1 for 500 guns. Marksmans in Westfield has some older and interesting from time to time but his used stuff typically goes pretty quick. He does have a small cabinet that's seems to be dedicated to cowboy action style stuff. Definitely worth stopping in if you find yourself north of Indianapolis.

    Last time I paid attention Elmores had several pre 1900 Winchester rifles from an estate. I would call to see if you're interested in what is there.

    May be out of your area, but McDonald's in Marion has a large selection of older guns.

    There was a gun auction a week ago last Wed that went under the radar in southern Indiana. I didn't hear of it until it was all over. Everything there went embarrassing cheap.

    They sold a "double barreled 16ga shotgun" for $60. The guy who made the only bid said he wanted it to put on the wall. The "double barrel" turned out to be a Drilling... no one there obviously knew.

    One guy bought an early 1873 Winchester and an early 1892 for $900 apiece. Working order, hand held, shoot'n history for under a grand.

    Thought that might get your blood pressure up a bit...
