The Juneau Mercantile & Armory is easy to pick out — a large and rustic but shiny and new building of lodgepole pine with a camouflaged tour bus that reads “Alaska Shooting Adventures.”
The new retail space and range, after three years of construction and controversy, opened to the public on July 4.
Entering through two sets of vault doors, the retail space has a wide-open feel. On the walls and scattered throughout are mounts, from moose to goats and a bear on its hind legs. They are on loan from local residents for display.
