Bob Ward & Sons

ALSO, BEST STORE FOR GUNS

According to store legend, Bob Ward ended up in Missoula by accident. He was on his way to prospect for gold in the Klondike when, at the turn of the 20th century, he came to our town, ran out of money and decided to stay. After struggling to find a good job in the area (some things never change), Ward turned his skills as a gunsmith into a flourishing business. His sons turned the shop into a popular statewide chain of sporting goods stores. The enduring appeal of what Bob Ward started is obvious: you can buy all your outdoors needs in one stop, with the aid of expert salespeople who are happy to help you navigate the store’s almost overwhelming selection. Bob Ward & Sons, Inc: 3015 Paxson St, 728-3220, bobwards.com
