About Us


We are a full service firearms and accessories dealer committed to serving our customers and our community.  Looking through

our stock of over 450 firearms, you will find not only the brands and models discriminating enthusiasts demand, but also

some of the newest cutting-edge items you won't find in many gun shops. 


We also carry a full line of holsters, 1911 parts & accersories, Glock parts, ammunition, gun cleaning supplies, etc.


In 1998, my best friend and I went to a lawyer and drew up partnership papers to open a gun shop.  The next day, he was told

his cancer was back. In amonth, he was gone.  An hour before he passed away, he made me promiseto open the shop.


I opened the shop in November of that year in a 450 square foot office.  The shop had a grand total of 7 guns.  I quickly discovered

that if I ran the business as a hobby, it was going to be expensive.


Two years later, we moved to a 3,000 square foot building.  A pawn shop is on one side, and we are on the other.  

Currently, we have about 450 guns on display.


I hired DC to manage the business.  He had a great deal of experience in that capacity, and is doing a terrific job.


DC, Scott, Chris, are Certified Glock Armorers.  Scott is incredibly good at diagnosing problems.


Roy and Chris also contribute.  With their help, we are building AR-15's and 1911's.


Arthur is our webmaster, and is responsible for the re-design of our website,and its continual updating.


We all shoot competitively.  At the moment, we are all trying to get to Roy's level.  He is amazingly good with a revolver,

a semi-automatic pistol, a shotgun, and a carbine.


I am an NRA-certified instructor, and I teach concealed carry classes.  Because of the nature of politics today, I urge you to get

your permit if your local laws allow it.


We are dealers for Galco, DeSantis, and Don Hume.  We are also a Wilson Combat Master Dealer, a Kimber Master Dealer,

a Sigarms stocking dealer,and a Glock Stocking Dealer.  We are also the sole distributor of the innovative "Holdster",

a pocket holster for small autos (see our Links page).


We also have a good selection of Colt, Springfield, Smith & Wesson, Taurus, and Ruger products, as well as many others. 

What you WON'T find are guns with reputations for breaking.  We don't want someone to draw his or her legal handgun in a

combat situation, and have it not function.


Please look at the rest of our website and, if you have the opportunity, come by and see us.  We thank you for your interest,

and we'd appreciate the chance to introduce ourselves in person!
