Pekin Gun and Sports in Pekin IL usually carries around 3000 guns on display. Busy, but great people to deal with.

For local stores i prefer 10-8 outfitters. Real friendly take time to answer any questions and no pressure to buy. When i bought my last gun wife was with me had my daughter and her friend and they where still real patient. Smileys in town has guns and stuff but the service sucks. guy looked at us like i was gonna steal everything and my daughter was gonna break what i couldn't fit in my pockets.

I've had good, great, and "other" experience at 10-8. Because of "other", I haven't been back in some time, and my experience has cost them several purchases since.

Pekin Gun is awesome, if you can physically get in there when they are busy and don't mind the drive to Pekin.

Darnall's isn't bad, but the selection can be a little slim. I enjoy talking with Ron when I have been out there and he isn't super busy.

Presley's in Bartonvillle has a decent selection of hunting rifles/shotguns, some semi auto rifles of various brands/types, and their handgun selection isn't too bad. Lots of ammo on hand last I was there, but a little higher on price.

another place with a huge selection is Megasports in Plainfield. kind of a drive, but a very large selection of all types of firearms. I heard recently they were expanding. Prices seem a little higher due to their proximity to the republik of chicago.
