Thanks for the updates! Did CRS Weaponry move? Somehow I have 2 entries for them on the map. The old one is in Clearwater:

29661 U. S. Highway 19 North
Clearwater, FL 33761
727-789-GUNS (4867)

Did they move? Open another store? Did I get it wrong the 1st time? Thanks.

Is this place worth mentioning? I have never been there.

Empire Guns & Pawn Incorporated
(813) 915-0645
10552 N Florida Ave, Tampa, FL 33612

Also, what do you guys think about a list/map of pawn shops that sell guns? I've only found a few around here and it'd be nice to know where some more are. Or does nobody buy guns at pawn shops? [smilie=011.gif] Or maybe a list of the Walmarts/Sport Authorities/Dicks/etc that sell them? I know there only 1 Walmart in Pinellas that sells guns anymore.

If it's a gun shop, then it's worth mentioning. The idea behind this was to have a list of gun shops/dealers that you could see where they were on a map. The place you listed has been added to the map.

As far as pawn shops go, you will see some other "gun & pawn" or "pawn & gun" shops already on the map.

A while back I posed the question of whether to include Walmarts/Sport Authorities/Dicks/etc. that sell guns, but I didn't get any feedback.

Neat little shop I used to transfer my last gun through.. I know it's my first post, but Im not affiliated with the place at all.. Just the first thread I came across and wanted to contribute! I know they do FFL service, and believe it or not I got 1000 small pistol primers from him, although it was $$ (40.00/1000) #-o But overall it's a nice "little" shop and the owner is a really nice guy from the 2 times I've been in there... Here's the particulars.. [smilie=cheers1.gif]

"Boyer's Gunsmith Shop"
1200 N. Volusia Ave.
Orange City, Fl. 32763

Can you verify that the new location push-pin on the map is correct? I'm getting conflicting results depending on how I enter the address in Google. Look here: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie ... 36736&z=15" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

That's the location Google gives me, but the road lable obviously says "Manatee Ave W" not "east"
Thanks.

Push pin is at Manatee W, incorrect location.
Try eliminating SR64 designation, use 2106 Manatee Ave East.

I haven't read the entire thread yet, but a POI file for a GPS would be awesome.... There are some times when I am working out of my home area where it would be nice to know where there is a gun shop nearby...

(Heh heh... my first post!)

The lat/long data is actually already there. If you click on one of the shop push-pins, then click on "send" as if you're sending the shop info in an e-mail to someone, you can see the lat/long data embedded in the URL like this:

Hi, I'd like to share a Google Maps link with you.
Link: <http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie ... e0b4c8d6[b]&ll=28.58015,-81.29282[/b]&spn=0.109892,0.14677&z=13>

So if someone can show me how to easily extract this for all the shops, I could add it to the store info pop-ups.

BTW, welcome to the board NeonHomer.
