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.
