About Sportsman's Warehouse Missoula

Open since 2013, Sportsman’s Warehouse in Missoula is a block away from the Clark Fork River, near where it meets the Blackfoot and Bitterroot Rivers. National gunsmithing services are now available! If you like hunting, we’re here to get you all set up with everything you need. Popular pursuits include elk, moose, sheep, goat, mountain lion, turkey, upland game bird, bear, pronghorn antelope, wolf, waterfowl, whitetail and mule deer. If fishing is more your speed, we are a fly fisherman’s destination and have all of your tackle to catch the trout that you’re after. We can keep you updated on the conditions at Flathead Lake, Rock Creek, Big Hole River, and Beaverhead River. We also carry plenty of supplies for camping, hiking, folfing (disc golf), kayaking, or just floating the rivers. We even sell suppressors! Our shop services are available to spool reels, mount and boresight rifle scopes, cut arrows, clean guns, tune bows in our 15-yard archery lane, and anything covered by your Firearm Service Plan. Whether it’s a cold, snowy winter or a warm summer day, we’ve got the seasonal accessories to fit your outdoor adventure. We’re close to both Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National park, in addition to numerous ski resorts. While you’re in the area, be sure to check out local events like the Missoula Marathon. Missoula is also home of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s Elk Country Visitor Center or visit the National Bison Range about an hour away.
