Not the talking moose.

Talking Moose

The talking moose wasn't working. The switch seemed to be broken. This is a very interesting place, complete with shooting ranges.

Talking Moose

Make sure to plan time to look around the store and gun range. It is a big facility and interesting even to non-gun enthusiasts. The moose has some great one liners.

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.

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.
