This place is awesome! they offer concealed weapon permit classes, military discount, Great selection of fire arms and ammo and accessories. Fair prices, anytime I need something I go here. My bolt release​/catch paddle broke on my rifle thought I was out of luck, they had it and it was an easy fix. Few months later my extractor broke off my bolt. again thought it was a long shot that they would have that, but they did and they were very helpful and got me back in the fight. By far my favorite gun store in the Tucson area. Highly recommend this place for all your firearm needs. Great friendly helpful knowlable staff!

Been here a couple times and had good experiences until the latest, and last, time I went. The woman up front was extremely rude. I waited patiently in line until my turn. Then I began to tell her why I was there, she abruptly cut me off and told me with attitude to see the sales people and pointed across the store. Fine. I looked and everyone was wearing T-shirt and pants. I asked which is a sales person since it wasn't obvious to me who was a customer or worker. She then pointed in the direction and said "Sales are over there!" even bitchier. Not sure what the name was. It was the brown-haired whale wearing glasses behind the register.

Seem like nice guys. I called for info regarding CCW and what I could carry when traveling to AZ for vacation. They were very helpful over the phone. Maybe I'll stop by the shop while I'm out there. Thanks!
