Talking Moose

The moose is hilarious. This is a gem of a stop! I loved the other two. Firing range and the gun emporium is decked out like Cabela's, but cooler and old school. Tons of selection.

Talking Moose Statue

At Ahlman's Gun Shop outside of Morristown, there is a re-created Old West town and a huge moose statue that apparently talks if you push a button near its base. Ahlman's holds a sharpshooter festival each August.
