Davis Hardware on Congress Avenue


I loved this place. It was on the east side of Congress around the 300 or 400 block. Loved the smell and looking at all the unique things there. My dad bought me my first rifle there from Smokey. He ran the gun department and everybody went to see Smokey. I still have that rifle. Haven't shot it in 30 years.

Got a BB pistol from Davis Hardware on Congress '59

I saw it in the front window and had to have it. I saved my lunch money for 2 months and looked for golf balls on Lake Austin Blvd to get the $16.50 for it
