About Us

Shooters Way is a small locally owned and operated gun store in Sarasota, Florida focused on the sale of and training for self-defense guns.

If you are looking for a gift the gun shop also carries ladies apparel, hunting supplies, survival bracelets and an inventory containing a little bit of something for everyone.

You don’t have to be a firearms expert to shop. In fact, novices and first-time gun buyers are always welcome and given the time and consideration necessary for them to make a knowledgeable and appropriate purchase. Since 1985, store owner Larry Mills has been an NRA instructor certified in pistol, rifle, shotgun level 1 & 2 and muzzleloader rifle and pistol; also teaching reloading for rifle, pistol and shotgun. Larry is also an NRA Chief Safety Officer, NRA Range Safety Officer, USPSA Range Officer and SASS Level 1 & 2 Safety Officer. Three levels of gun classes are currently offered to accommodate all levels of gun enthusiasts from beginner to advanced. As a first-time gun buyer, you will receive skilled, competent advice on purchasing the right gun for your needs.

For the more experienced gun owner or collector, Larry’s knowledge stems from his background as a competitive shooter (Master Class) and avid gun collector. Whether you are a hunter, firearms collector or target shooter you will find the weapon and accessories you need to pursue your passion.
