Directions to places of interest


Well-Known Member
When I say places of interest I mean gun shops!

I am leaving for the upstate in just a minute and don't have time to look up directions to "Upstate Armory" and "Palmetto State Armory".

I will be traveling on I-26 and 385.

We need a thread with directions to all the worthwhile guns shops from the major highways.

I got there, not the easiest place to find.
I spent almost two hours shooting the breeze with Bob.
Upstate Armory should be on your short list of places to stop in.

I have found an easy way to find Palmetto State Armory....From I-26 turn onto I-77 towards Charollette. Continue on (forever) till you pass I-20. The next exit is route 555. Take that exit and bear left...Go on till you see a small College on the left.
Turn left at first place after the collage. Go to the second entrance. That is their parking lot...
