Our Largo store, located off the corner of Seminole Blvd and Walsingham Rd, is the first and original store we opened back in 2016. With an emphasis on education, we have had hundreds of people partake in our training and enjoying our products & services. This store features a SilencerShop kiosk, on-site gunsmithing, off-site engraving and Cerakoting, firearms, and many options for various parts and accessories.
To better serve Tampa Bay residents, we decided to open a store off of W Kennedy Blvd and S Habana Ave. It officially opened on May 4th, 2021 and features much of the same great products as the Largo store but with additional space to accommodate more products and greater variety. Classes and on-site gunsmithing are also available here as well as access to our off-site services. You'll find the atmosphere to be relaxed and enjoyable while we work to provide the right products and information that you're looking for.
