Where else in the grand ole state of California can you buy a beer and a gun in the sme store? Here of course. Come on in and grab a shot and chat with some locals about hunting and fishing. Nice friendly place.

Actually a funky fun place. Don't be skeered to go in. Get a beer while you talk guns and fishing. Heck, buy a gun there and fishing stuff etc. Most of all enjoy the atmosphere.
