Hey Jim, nice to see ya. There is a section that has polls, ratings, and reviews about all of the shops in OR and WA, just fyi.
But if it was for my #1 recommendation, I would go with philomath gun shop, usually the cheapest prices south of PDX area. Great owners and employees. Their best deals are on firearms, since they only charge $20 over cost for special orders (I believe its the same for whats in stock). Their ammo and accessories are a bit more than places like the internet, but the good thing is that they never remark their prices, so sometimes a good deal can be found on some ammo that has been sitting there for a while.
Hank's Gun Shop in Stayton, OR. Just go in with some time to spare. Hank's a great guy and so is Don, who runs the shoe shop. Just watch out for the BS going back and forth between them, you might need to go in with hip waders.
Went to Hanks for the first time about two weeks ago. Nice place and I like the old downtown setting...
I kinda want to know how you guys think they treat you, I have been to most of the shops around Oregon and it seems to me we have a pretty good bunch running our gunshops, but that's just the way I see it.
