Readers' Pick

Also, Best Store for Guns

It’s actually amazing, the sheer amount of stuff Bob Wards has for every outdoor occasion. There’s outdoor apparel, camping gear, hunting and fishing supplies and snow gear. Whether you’re a tennis player or a paintball enthusiast, a keen-shot archer or a lazy-day tackle fisherman, you can find mountains of gear here to suit your outdoor goals. Those of us in the know have gone to Bob Wards for our canoes, ice-fishing poles, boot liners, camp chairs and camping coffeepots. Not only have they been voted best for sporting goods, but in particular, Bob Ward’s gun department has a bullseye reputation for good actions and barrels, and employees who know their stuff down to the grain—people like Bill Brown, the president of the 1,000-yard benchrest club. We figure, it you can shoot that far, you have a pretty good grip on gun gear. Bob Ward & Sons: 3015 Paxson St., 728-3220, bobwards.com
