What a great service they do. I needed a gunsmith and he was the only person to help me. Everyone else was to backed up, Kevin fixed my revolver in under a hour at an extremely reasonable price. Large selection and very knowledgeable staff as well. The whole place is just a real class act. I wish everyplace ran their business like this place.

Came in to shop for and purchase my first AR. I’ve owned a lot of guns in my life but never an AR (aside from the military). I explained my circumstances to them and they were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. At the end of the day they I left with a new rifles and few accessories. The prices were reasonable, there’s a ton of inventory to chose from and the vibe was good. Looking forward to my next visit. Excellent crew🤙🏾

Most gun places you go to there’s always that one guy that knows everything and tells you what’s up, but I didn’t have that problem. Mentioned building an AR10 6.5 Creedmoor and was told immediately if they don’t have it in shop order parts from their online store when usually I’m met with “you should just buy one” or “stick with a .308”. Great staff, and customer service, even got hooked up with fingerprinting for concealed carry permit!
