Overtons is a general sporting good store, but they have a BIG hunting section, with a lot of outdoor clothing and boots. They have an OK firearms section--mostly long guns though. I was pleasantly surprised at their selection in that department--they hactually had a REALLY sweet Benelli M4 on the rack, but it was WAY above my budget. I did get a LimbSaver buttpad for my Mossberg there though, for a decent price.
If you are looking for a good source in the Greenvile area, check out the two stores in Winterville, Adventure Outdoors, and D&L Guns. Both are staffed with very knowledgeable folks, they are TOTALLY cool with OC, and they both have good selections in-stock and are glad to do special orders.
Action Outfitters has more handguns in stock (mostly used), and their prices are pretty good. They have a decent selection of new and used long guns too, expecially if you're into the "tacti-cool" models. They have lots of ARs (Bushmaster, DPMS), some AK's and SKS's, and a few of the Saiga models (shotguns and rifles) They even have a single-shot bolt-action .50cal on display, if you've got a spare $3k you need to get rid of... :shock:
D&L has more "sporting" long guns, and an OK selection of handguns, and the staff is really knowledgeable and friendly.
Awesome Outdoors in Washington probably has the best selection of new and used handguns in this area. An their selection of new and used long guns is pretty wide-ranging too. About the only place you're going to find a bigger selection in this area is Mackeys up in Jamesville, but Mackey's prices tend toward the high side...
Speaking of Mackey's, if you live ANWYWERE near the north-east part of NC, you owe it to yourself to check this place out, if only for the sheer "wow" factor. They have pretty much EVERYTHING there--military, hunting, handguns of all kinds, ammo, holsters, accessories--it's pretty amazing. There are no great bargains to be found there though, but if there is something you're looking for and can't find at the smaller shops, and you just GOTTA have it, they probably have it on the shelf at Mackey's. But be advised, you will pay a premium...
Then there is "Docs Gun and Pawn" in Greenville. Interesting selection, especially if you're into surplus and older firearms, but their prices are, IMO, VERY inflated. They've had a Para Ordnance P13 with a lot of finish wear in their display for close to a year, and I haven't been able to talk them down a penny on it, even though I stop in every 2 or 3 months and try and haggle with them...
