    Great Northern Guns

    I was glad to hear they had continued after the owner retired. Does anyone know if they've been able to resume stocking black powder yet?

    Great Northern Guns

    We got Sportsman's Warehouse and Walmart. There was a Sports Authority who also sold guns (gone now) Frontier Outfitters is still in business. I was surprised that Down Under couldn't stay in business. Iron & Wood seems to be doing okay. Great Northern Guns in Anchorage filled a similar...

    Great Northern Guns

    There's a newer gun store in town called "Iron and Wood." They carry cool stuff including some muzzleloaders. I was hoping they'd carry black powder but apparently the demand is far too small to warrant the hassle involved with shipping and storing it. The Midnight Sun Muzzleloaders used to...

    Ammo Recovery

    Good to hear. Thanks. Hopefully that's also the situation at our Sportsmans in Fairbanks. Did you happen to notice if there was any shot back in stock in the reloading supplies? I've been looking for shot locally for my recently purchased smooothbore muzzleloader with no luck.

    Black powder in Anchorage?

    Does anyone know if there's anywhere to buy real black powder in the Anchorage area now? I'm planning a trip down there in the near future. I used to pick up a few pounds at Great Northern Guns every time I was in the area but now with GNG gone and Goex out of production I'm not so optimistic...

    Great Northern Guns

    Was sad to see that Great Northern Guns is going away. First bought guns and ammo there as a teenager in the 70's. That was a mandatory stop on my occasional trip down from Fairbanks to buy black powder. Are there going to be any retailers in Alaska selling real black powder with them gone?

    ATV with snow plow?

    Does anyone have experience with a four or six wheeler ATV that works reasonably well with a snow plow? Primary use of the ATV would be hauling stuff around the property and snow plowing but would prefer something that would fit in the back of a pickup. Thanks!

    Pond Liner?

    We're putting in a pond for the garden. The liner needs to be 20x20 or 20x25. Having trouble find pond lining material. We're hoping to find EPDM. Haven't had any luck finding any here in Fairbanks. Anyone know of a source? If we can find something in Anchorage that would work too...

    AK Muzzleloader Hunts

    It's my impression that Alaska has fewer muzzleloader only hunts than most of the other states. Is this because other places have more hunting in populated areas? That doesn't make a whole lot of sense since inlines with sabot's, etc. have ballistics that aren't too far behind modern rifles...

    Gunbroker and AK

    I've been casually browsing Gunbroker. It seems like every time I see something I might consider dropping a bid on, the seller states that they only ship to the Lower 48. Is there any room for negotiation on this? Will you get kicked off, blacklisted or cussed out if you "overlook" the no...

    Vintage gun store in Fairbanks?

    There's a fairly new gun store in Fairbanks that I just found out about. I believe it's called "Iron & Wood Vintage Firearms." It's right next door to Frontier Outfitters. Really want to check out but have trouble getting over there during business hours. Anyone know what they have there...

    Firearms in Canada

    Hoping to take a drive down to Skagway in the not too distant future. Planning on some camping and hiking both around Skagway and in YT and want to bring the Mossberg 500 along. It doesn't appear too complicated, just declare the gun at customs, with a completed declaration form in triplicate...

    AM 751 Questions

    I registered for the AM 751 targeted hunt here in Fairbanks earlier (have not been selected yet) According to the description of the hunt in the regulation book the hunt is restricted to bow & arrow, crossbow or muzzleloader, with proper certification for any of the above. According to the...
