Bill Guns Shop and Range. One in Robinsdale and one in Circle Pines. Their guns and range are on the pricey side.

If your in the south metro, I suggest Burnsville gun range if your looking for a range.

Theirs also Frontiersman, if your looking for an experience.
A surly experience.

Bills is a good shop. Prefer the Circle Pines location, but both are good.

Of course Cabelas in Rogers and Owatona have huge selections.

Gander Mountains arent the best on prices. The Cabelas in Rogers (NW of the cities on I94, just 10 miles from Maple Grove) has a good selesction, with OK prices, expect about $50 over what you normally would see.
Gun Stop in Minnetonka is a good place. Huge reloading section, tons of long guns, and a nice selection of pistols. Pretty good prices too. Cheapest place I have seen to get a Springfield XDm.

Bills Gun Shop is good too, again not the cheapest. Lots of accessories and good list of long guns. They have alot of the 'exotic' stuff too. Kriss Super V, PS90's etc.

It really depends on what part of the cities you are in.

Yea, none of them are really close together by any means. Bills in Robbinsdale is alot bigger now too, I dont know when the last time anyone was up there but they must have leased the space next to them too. Bills actually had some nice 1911's last time I was in there, but as was said they are not on the cheap side. Gunstop has the best prices out of any of them, at least the ones Ive seen.

Yeah Bills just added that section in Robbinsdale a couple months ago.

They are a Night Hawk, Ed Brown, and Wilson dealer. Last weekend I was there for a match and they had four hawks and two browns in the case plus they have SA TRP's and a Dan wesson Razorback 10mm as far as interesting 1911's go. If I were just window shopping I would go there or cabelas (who also typically has one or two Ed Browns in the case, plus whatever is in the gun library).

I do a lot of business with gunstop for their reloading supplies and I have bought a gun there, but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit as tourist just to window shop They are a pretty small shop and have a fairly bland drooling selection IMO but Jon in reloading supplies knows his stuff for sure!

I was really surprised when I saw a Fusion at Bills too. Yea the handgun selection at gunstop is not too great. If you were looking at a place just for that I would skip it.
